“The Cosmos extends, for all practical purposes, forever. After a brief sedentary hiatus, we are resuming our ancient nomadic way of life. Our remote descendants, safely arrayed on many worlds throughout the Solar System and beyond, will be unified by their common heritage, by their regard for their home planet, and by the knowledge that, whatever other life may be, the only humans in all the Universe come from Earth. They will gaze up and strain to find the blue dot in their skies. They will love it no less for its obscurity and fragility. They will marvel at how vulnerable the repository of all our potential once was, how perilous our infancy, how humble our beginnings, how many rivers we had to cross before we found our way.” -Carl Sagan This is the discussion thread for the RPG "New Hope's Last Overture (All the Distant Ships)". Here, you may place your character sheet (once approved by myself) and background (if you wish to reveal it; alternatively, you may withhold your background if you intend to reveal it as a method of advancing storyline). This will be my first time GM'ing an RPG of this style. However, I do have an extensive Table-Top RPG background, including DM'ing Dungeons and Dragons (as well as creating and running my own campaign) and d20 Modern/Future campaigns. This game is intended to share the harrowing accounts of Earth's species as they struggle for survival in an ever expanding universe. I can't wait to see how you, the players, will tell that story. I look forward to sharing the future of the known galaxy with you!
