The 23rd Century has seen the human race expand across the inner worlds of the Solar System, establishing vibrant colonies with diverse cultures and a myriad of interesting characters.
This is not the shiny view of the future as dreamt by the science fiction visionaries of the 20th Century, it’s a rampant clash of hearty capitalism, personal greed and ambition, underhanded plots, hidden agenda and the daily fight for survival, whether plying the space lanes or traversing the ruins of Earth.
Pirates prey on the unwary, cartels fight amongst themselves for influence within the established colonies whilst the Martian military continues to police the inner worlds, protecting their own interests more often than the rule of law. Those who seek freedom from Martian rule over Earth do their utmost to fight against a much superior force.
Those who desire to be free of the Aries Corporation’s control drift outward to the asteroid belt, inhabiting small outposts and mining colonies. Resources are scarce, and arguments settled by the barrel of a laser pistol are commonplace.
This is the 23rd Century, mind out for the Mercurian Ale and try not to lose too much in the Venusian pleasure domes. Above all, enjoy your stay!
