Story

Humankind has advanced dramatically since the industrial revolution of commercialized outer space. With so many living off Earth, a new calendar was created: the Cosmic Almanac System, or “CAS”. The current year is 64 CAS. Legally, there are no governments controlling outer space, only special interest groups called Factions. These Factions are funded by governments and big tech corporations. They have only one purpose: mine the asteroids, by any means necessary...


Factions will either find abandoned mining facilities or build new facilities on asteroids. They mine the minerals and sell them to their investors back on Earth in order to buy the latest technologies.  They purchase technologies such as military grade 3D printer blueprints, artificial intelligence, advanced weaponry, nanotechnology, tactical body suits and even teleportation.
