A crew of space drifters find a mutant girl, whose DNA may hold the key to restoring their toxic uninhabitable Earth.
The year is 2185 and orbital wars have reduced Earth’s surface to uninhabitable toxic waste. The only survivors reside in space stations and moon colonies throughout the solar system owned and controlled by a ruthless dictatorial businessman.
Reagan Valkiers, Captain of the spaceship Routillier, has been completing dangerous missions for the rebellion for too long. He wants out. When he and his crew of drifters receive a tip off to follow their rivals off station, and through the Earth perimeter defence force, what they find could be the perfect excuse. A pod, fired from the surface, drifting in space, which when opened, reveals a green-haired mutant woman.
But the crew have interrupted her mission. Now they must travel the solar system, in order to learn Eden’s purpose, and help her fulfil it, evading capture by those who want her dead. Their journey will make them fugitives, test their resolve, skills and loyalties and take them beyond the Lunatic Fringe, the point of no return, in their pursuit of answers.
try chapter 5, its an interlude to the story, but a fun self-contained poker game.
