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.

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

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.

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 You get surplus and outdated equipment, mostly your average shotgun, assult rifle, and pistol- And maybe some body armor (more on that soon)

Did the holiday season just begin in the US or something because hooo we are getting a revitalisation of new RPs in this subforum! \o/

Too bad that in my institution the finals are still coming up in a month so I have no time for anything. ;-;
