Dead Gods Rising & Diesel Punk World at War
The campaign setting is based on an earth that has developed PL 6 (Fusion Age) technology and is on the verge of entering the Gravity Age (PL 7). Mars has been colonized, and both the Earth and now Mar’s populations continue to grow, families are limited to one child, unless they are very wealthy and can afford to buy a child license. Many resources needed for technological inventions have started to become scarce. In addition there are many groups who, due to religion or class, feel oppressed by the governments/corporations of the world. A planet, Xerxes 7, has been spotted in a distant galaxy, and appears to have the promise of life. Your group is part of a colonization effort led by Frank Sinden, one of the wealthiest men on earth. He has a vision of creating a new world free from the problems of Earth. A large fleet of ships is traveling through space, and your group is to explore the planet and begin securing an area for a landing party to start colonizing the planet. There are several other ships that will be doing the same on different parts of the planet, though they may not be close enough to provide you with aid.
The ship you are on is filled with soldiers, scientist, doctors, and engineers who will be working to bring this together. It is suggested that you choose a class related to these, though it is not a requirement. Depending on what class you choose some equipment will be provided to you free (to be announced).
