Roleplay SettingsNereus XI Station (Scifi)
Nereus XI is a space station that has very seedy reputation among those of galactic federation that even know of it. For the not-so-honest dwellers of the systems at extreme borders of federation space it is important spaceport though. Once upon time when the federation was still expanding it was made to cater to supplies for mining industry that was supposed to span in the system, but after the expansion stopped it was mostly forgotten and abandoned till it gained new life and use as trading station for the privateers who make their living out at the rim.
All the expansions and cargo storage have made the station look like quite a patchwork, but in void of space looks matter little. It is home for about ten thousand inhabitants; Merchants, mechanics, cargo workers, mercenaries, barkeepers, doctors, peddlers and whores, there is something for anything. The variety of races on the station is also rather impressive – although the station atmosphere only caters for oxygen breathers. Unlike in more tightly controlled federation space, trade in illegal goods, slaves and weapons is blooming.
There is also a makeshift security force, upheld by joint operation of main syndicates controlling the space in the star system. Of course, the station “laws” are very different from those at federation space. Who to not mess with is far more important than what the conduct is. Most found breaking the rules are executed – and those who are usually material fit for selling as slaves after some re-education. Due to harsh nature of justice in the station, there are not many who would break the rules. Most often the ones stirring trouble are newcomers who did not know better, or criminals on the run that are deemed too much of a risk to have around free.
There is a lot of opportunity in the station even with all the risks involved. Trade in different legal and not so legal goods is blooming, there is ample amount of work for mercenaries and hired guns. And the privateers and pirates around the system certainly need their share of drinks and entertainment as well. All in all it is good hideout for anyone that can hold their own and does not care much about the federation law. For those needing to disappear, it is one of the rare places where federation law has no weight.
There is wealth of possibilities for adult RP and different character concepts in this setting, so if it tickles your imagination feel free to message me and we can see if we can see if we manage to put a scenario together that satisfied both.
