The Twilight of the Known Worlds
Welcome to the ‘Twilight’ of the Known Worlds
Alonius Dulcinea of the Muster, Muscle for Hire and Technological Reclamation Specialist has recently been removed as captain of the Decados Tupok’ta Class Destroyer the " RDS Praying Mantis ", and installed as Captain of the K-64 Firefly Class vessel the " Golden Phoenix ". With his team, the Engineer Razak Ma’Haifa, Charioteer Luka Murray, and new partner Karma Harrison, he has decided to use it to expand the Tech Reclamation business that had made him so much money.
Still aboard are the intense Avestite Priestess and her Vorox guard, the two “Packages” she recovered from Icon, the mysterious “Ambassador”, and the Almathean Doctor, Who has proven to be quite the calm and resourceful individual.
Knowing only that Alexius Hawkwood Junior, Maria Decados, and two Etyri guards have vanished en-route to the Jumpgate, the Golden Phoenix launches, and the crew discovers that they are not alone aboard ship. Who is the mysterious Pepper that has been granted control of the vessel by Captain Dulcinea? Is she alive? Is she an AI? Is she a ghost? Can she protect the crew from what might await them in their daring rescue of the erstwhile Scarab class vessel.
Meanwhile, shadowy figures operate behind the scenes. What are their intentions towards our intrepid band of ‘heroes’? Are they friend or foe, human or alien?
Can the partners continue to profit under the baleful gaze of an Avestite? Will everyone die in airless space when Pepper opens all the airlock doors at once? Does anyone trust anyone else? What do we burn apart from heretics? Does anyone actually read any of this stuff? Tune in next session to find out!
Played at Inner Sanctum Collectibles, Cambridge, UK, on Alternate Monday Nights.
