NameShadows in the Void
The future is bleak. Sure, we're out among the stars, but we only came out here because we're running out of resources. Food, fuel, breathable air. All of it. The problem is, we're not alone and now we know it.
Blood-drinkers, men who've gone feral, disciples of ancient civilizations and still stranger beings departed Earth with us, and the farther we went, the more obvious it became. And the less it seemed to bother us.
As with all things, though, humanity has adapted. The supernatural communities exert influence where they can and corporations effectively rule the spaces that governments don't. Chief among them is the [[Resource Production Corporation]], which through a combination of pressure and corruption, has amassed enough wealth and power to significantly challenge even the [[Coalition of Planetary Governments]] in open space. The tension between the two creates cracks through which smaller ships can slip.
This is where you come in. You are the crew of -[[Profit Margin]]- [[Dead Dreaming|the Dead Dreaming]], an independent [[Atlas-class]] ship, composed of mortals and supernaturals alike. Harvesting loose resources across the universe can bring a ship into contact with unknowable dangers but also provides far more freedom than would be available living on the planets or even working directly for one of the corporations.
This is the Infinite Macabre. You are the Shadows in the Void.
