..idea, at least from me. These two are Sci-Fi based, the first being a potential small-group game. Its also a post-apocolyptic type setting.


The Last of the…

The Earth Federation ceased to exist 50 days before the E-Class Swallow dropped out of hyperdrive, returning from a trip to the fringes of known space. Its crew: a squad of marines in charge of protection, navigation, and piloting; a medical officer; three scientists; and two engineers. As they wake from cryogenic induced sleep, a dangerous new world is ready to confront them.


Lost in Space

Captain John Falcon is a test pilot for the Earth Federation. Humans have reached for the stars but have found no ‘aliens’ apart for some life forms on other planets. Nothing resembling intelligence though. Space travel is notoriously long, but scientists have recently developed a jump-drive that makes travel much, much faster – faster than the speed of light. It has only been tested in closely monitored environments and never inside of a ship.

Captain Falcon will be the first human to test out this new engine in a small, one man ship. If all goes well, he will be the latest of pilots to enter the history and record books. Firing up the engines, he cruises out into open space, and initiates the jump-drive. It works, or so he thinks.

Arriving at his destination, he finds things slightly odd. Where was the space-station he was meant to arrive at? Where were the Media Ships, the Federation ships? Something was wrong, he could tell, and his fears are confirmed when a Giant Freighter, completely foreign in design, appears on the horizon.

It would seem that Captain John Falcon had set a new record – and would enter the history books as the only Earthling to come in contact with an Alien Species. But would he ever be able to find his way home, let alone survive in this alien world?
