Across the Sea of Stars
by Lynn Anslow, Jeff Diewald, Susan Giusto, Tim Lasko and Barry Tannenbaum
This is the history of the future.
In the Age of Expansion, starships set out in a thousand different directions, some chosen, some accidental, growing ripples of influence across the sea of stars. When the ripples began to collide and interfere, the galaxy entered the Age of Contact. There were conflicts and conquests, projects and progress. The galaxy grew both larger and smaller, all in the span of a few centuries. As more and more races sailed their ships across the sea of stars, the Coterie emerged, an agreement that spanned the galaxy. The Age of Federation was born. There were still disagreements. Some of them were small, and could be resolved with diplomacy, economics and technology. Some of them were large, waves that threatened to wash across the entire galactic sea, waves that could wipe clean millennia of efforts and quadrillions of lives...
Inspired by Tales of Pendragon and Arabian Nights, you will play characters recreating moments from the history of the future, playing legendary and forgotten figures, telling the tales of the races as they set sail Across the Sea of Stars.
