In Stasis

Everything slows down and basically stops. Cell renewal is even affected, basically grinding to a halt and weeks or even months go by. Scientists can't explain it but you do dream in stasis.

Meet Alice LeDarm, a GIC operative specializing in assassinations. She's been suspended in stasis a couple of weeks on her way to a hit and the onboard computer is about to wake her up. As you can see she's not exactly the soft and cuddly type. As an avid practitioner of martial arts, weightlifting and parkour she's built for precision, strength and speed.

Drop Zone

Ah, another glorious day in the Border Guard. Low survival rate, the pay is a joke but at least you get dental and some rocket packs to play with.

The Border Guard is the cannon-fodder of the Governmental Industrial Complex. They're given basic training and sent into the field. Some get lucky and end up on a rather safe patrol rout while others are very unlucky and get dropped into a veritable meat grinder of violence.

But hey, those rocket packs do look sweet...And did we mention the dental?

Working Hard

We're planning to have the text for the core book proofed and ready sometime in November and at that point some more art should be pouring in. Our proofer and editor has been real busy lately with his studies and daytime job but it seems as his schedule is clearing up.

During the wait I've been able to finish up the text for Mission Control, a thirty page booklet which will be part of the GM-screen package. I've also worked about twenty five pages into Worlds, the book which details all the solar systems and their planets. This book is expected to land somewhere around two hundred pages.

We're also working hard on our pre-release free material. This consists of a twenty eight page full color graphic novel, a ten part video log youtube series and the fifty page quick-start which also contains a ready to play story. As you can imagine, we're quite busy.

The Sirius Galaxy

It's a vast galaxy and only a few systems have been made official, and even some of these are restricted. The Governmental Industrial Complex like to keep a lid on things. The Sirius galaxy offers a lot of opportunities but it's a perilous place. Months tick away as the crew travels through the ghost lines suspended in stasis. Raiders, rippers and even worse things can be found in the big empty.

The simplest of jobs can turn deadly out in the black. A distress call can take weeks or months to get through which also means it will take even longer for the help to arrive. Most deep space crews are on their own, left to fend for themselves. But that's the life...
