It is the year 2323 and the intergalactic age is here. Nanotechnology is safe and reliable, the latest invention can bring someone back to life after even the most horrendous accident, and humanity scours the stars for resources - so far finding no other complex intelligent life, at least none that humanity can recognise.
You are an engineer, a low grade job. Your usual role is to use nano-tools to keep spacecraft flying. This job was a little different. The SS Coyote has vanished. She was a colony ship, taking millions of souls from Sol to one of the far flung mining systems and she plotted a jump through an unmapped system, not an unusual event. She jumped and has not reported in since.
Your job was to investigate the disappearance, try to get her flying again if possible, rescue her crew, check on the passengers and report back so a new colony ship can be sent to rescue them. However, you have awoken from cryosleep to find your ship has crashed. Logs indicate that you jumped to the system and then… static, the logs make no sense. They are scrambled.
You have wrecked on an Earthlike planet, breathable atmosphere, seeded with Earth plantlife. Survival’s not going to be a problem here. No problem then - you’re an engineer, you can quite easily put together a small warp capable ship and get yourself back home - may as well complete the mission too, right?
There is just one problem. Your nano-tools, they didn’t get seeded before you set out… they can’t build anything until you’ve taught them the blueprints, and you can only do that by finding the object and grinding it down.
Furthermore, what’s that sound from outside… Oh god, is that one of the passengers…
Anyone interested in playing a roleplay server with me acting as a “GM”?
I’m aiming the scenario at new players or those who played a bit and bounced off it for lack of direction, but experienced players are welcome, I can crank up the difficulty to compensate.
It will be the type of thing you can drop in at anytime to play but you will likely want to co-ordinate to deal with “set pieces” that I design, but most of all, the idea is to give you a goal to achieve, in this case, build a ship with a jump drive to allow you to get back home - and the story will allow you to start by learning the very basics.
I’ll aim to have the server up and running in the new year, but happy to let players in on my tests - it will be my first server, so a learning experience for us all!
Obviously your stories are to be posted here for us all to enjoy
What do you say? Do you want to play?
