The heroes of our story ( AlphaCorps Mission Specialists) were called together by Cortez for their very first mission briefing! A simple mapping and survey mission to an unexplored planet in the Rim territories. And, as a bonus, the client is the government of Truane’s Star instead of a sleazy MegaCorporation. The Payday? A solid 250cr each!
Unfortunately for our heroes, upon entering the system, their transport was hijacked by an unknown band of Space Pirates. Even worse, the pirates had the audacity to destroy the weapons locker with all of our heroes’ weaponry still inside!!
After a series of skirmishes throughout the ship, the agents managed to get to a lifepod just a few steps ahead of a group of pirates. They managed to escape the ship, but before jettisoning, the pod suffered damage from the pirates’ automatic weapon-fire causing a fatal flaw in the lifepod.
The pod crashed in the middle of a harsh desert. Fortunately, no one sustained any damage in the crash. The characters were able to scavenge 8 survival packs before the pod blew up.
Now they are faced with the daunting prospect of survival across a harsh landscape hoping to find some means of rescue.
