Ancient Trails – A Spacer’s Guild Campaign
Welcome to the raggedy edge of human space, the Orion Frontier. This is the edge of human exploration. Rimward from here: There be Dragons! No star chart or encyclopedia tells us what lies beyond, only whispered tales of scouts and pirates provide us myth-inspired answers.
But here there is life… life in abundance and wonder to boot. The edge of the Orion Frontier is an arbitrary area of space called the Twilight Sector. Legends on the naming of the place abound. Was it a joke of some bureaucrat disgruntled with his posting, just the poetic license of those who came to call the place home or a comment on it being the last spec of human settled space? Arguments and evidence for each claim are many and it’s unlikely that the truth will ever be known.
What the Twilight Sector does have though is a wonder: Earth! Or at least an exact copy known as Terra/Sol. The planet is a beautiful blue green ball of cosmic habitat that resembles the mother planet down to the shape of its continents.
Opportunities for adventure abound on this duplicate Earth and the Twilight Sector which surrounds it. You will find mysteries in abundance. How did a perfect copy of the Earth wind up here? It hardly seems probable for it to have naturally developed! Maybe even more importantly, why is it here? A honey trap for humanity, the Shenzhou’s perfect world?
When the Mutant War came almost 110 years ago now, exploration of the Twilight Sector had barely begun. A mere quarter of the sector has already yielded two class one worlds, Precursor ruins and so much new territory you could spend a lifetime unlocking its secrets. What lies in the rest of the sector? More Precursor ruins? Perhaps finally, first contact with an alien race? Will you be one of the bold explorers that chart the Sea of Stars?
