But behind the train of illegal bars and smuggling runs, there is the engine that drives it- mini Stills and breweries hidden in crashed starships and abandoned buildings, frieghters weaving through security checkpoints. contacts, watering holes, Violence, evasion, business.
In Last hour at the Moonshine still, you are one of these engines, build breweries, speakeasies, hideouts. Gather wealth, and avoid the law- hire things to enforce territory, battle with other bootleggers, and become the king. From the detestable slum-worlds to the posh luxury hive colonies in the sector-
The sector of Aviaion Gamma.

I like this setup.

Perhaps it'd be a good idea to limit its scope, though? Instead of an entire sector as a backdrop, why not set it in a, say, single multi-district space station or fledgling colony? Somewhere just big enough for players to do their own thing, but small enough to force them to interact.

Also, 2029 might be a bit too early.
What is within a sector? How much space?
Yugoslavia's back baby...

How the hell did this happen?
Well...we don't actually know. Sure, there's factbooks and stuff, but they don't really matter because the owner of this account is a lazy, unproductive, indecisive loser who may or may not have a thing for half human hybrids, big mechs and even bigger ships.
Is it a reunited Yugoslavia in the 21st century? Is a rebel colony world in the far future? Who knows, who cares?
New Yugoslavia just is.

Great! I'm excited. This looks cool.

Why stick at only two? A three way battle could be interesting too.

Anything would be fine, I think. That might be the beauty of the semi-survival setting with the intrigue element; people who can conjure water from nowhere might be as useful, if not more so, than people who can shoot lightning from their fingertips.


A water manipulator could be interesting. I played one years ago and loved it.

I think I know where I'm going with this, the players all stars at a small colony in the outskirts of the sector,
build up their buissness, and expand to other planets in the sector.
This week: Antartican forces lifts siege on Communist Sharfari capital/New Fleet carrier added to Antartican People's navy/ New prototype tanks deployed to Sharfari front/ New stand issue Assult rifle introduced to Antartican troops.

Yes, but how big is a sector?
Also, what's technology like. I just feel 2029 might be way too soon.

Sector is probably going to be a 5×8 hex grid, with planets scattered all over. Aiming for a combanation of PT and FT, warp engines exist, but they can only be fitted only small-medium starships, like the freighter, destroyer, and cruiser, even then- because of inferior cooling systems, the typical warp engine IC is more prone to suffer breakdowns and malfunctions related to overheating, it can even happen during travel. Good ol' guns and artillery are still being used in the future, however- advanced burst rifles with caseless rounds are becoming standard issue for the army, but for you- the average criminal. You get surplus and outdated equipment, mostly your average shotgun, assult rifle, and pistol- And maybe some body armor (more on that soon)

Also, 2029 is too soon, it will be pushed back to late 2030s/early 2040s in the final product
