You know the story, right? Earth got used up. We found a new solar system and terraformed hundreds of new Earths. The Central planets formed the Alliance and asked everyone to play nice and unite under their rule. Didn't quite work out that way...

It's 2517, the Unification War ended 6 years ago (2511). The Alliance won, an armistice was signed, and the Independents (those who lost) they drifted out to the edges of the system, away from Alliance control. Out there on the Rim, folks can live their lives, struggle to make ends meet, or band together to survive. Some find a ship, gather a crew and find work to keep flying.

And some sort of steal one that others left lying around, they fix her up and somehow end up missing a brother as part of the trade. Now those misfit bunch of folks are following a trail of crumbs about the Verse to try and find out just what exactly they've wandered into...

-------------

Seven months ago (March 2517), the Verse seemed to be feeling somewhat kind. Two people who had lost almost everything found an abandoned Firefly on a desolate rocky moon. They buried some bodies, called in some back-up and managed to get her up and running.

Now, Fortune has flipped that coin and the echo of their luck is rippling through the lives of those who stole from her surface and all those who travel with them.

Step on up, and join the journey. Be part of the problem, seek the solution or sign up with the rivals.

Posted on Fri Oct 15th, 2021 @ 1:56am by Kindra Graham & Jonas Bailey

Kindra made her way to the cargo level, then past the infirmary to the crew bunks. She'd wanted to talk with Jonas ever since she'd come on board Fortune's Echo and discovered he was a member of the crew. The two of them had shared close quarters for a time,…

Ten hours of travel time and they were now looking at the gaudy and multi-coloured exterior of a floating city in space. Li Shen's Bazaar, home of unique foods, uniquer crews and a plethora of pretty much everything in between. Useful services like the Allied Postal System and St Lucy's…

Alden thanked the stars above their heads for the millionth time that Alison both trusted him and knew how to throw Echo around in an upward direction. As the Mule hit the ramp and slid unceremoniously sideways into the cargo bay airlock, said outer ramp was already closing while simultaneously…

What with Tristan's mysterious expedition and Whit's lost sheep, Alden knew there was a reckoning coming between him and his pilot. There was also the matter of catching each other up on the events from the surface, and that needed a private chat.

As he closed the door to the…

Day and night didn't mean much more than organised meal-times and a shaky sleep pattern out here in the black, Alden considered as he dealt himself another hand of 'patience'. Dog-eared old cards laid out on top of a battered old crate that lovingly remained as part of Echo's cargo…
