|An orbital habitat from a previous campaign|
|Sword Worlds Sector in 1115|
The setting will be the Sword Worlds, in the Spinward Marches shortly after the Fifth Frontier War (1107 to 1110), which did not go particularly well for the Sword Worlds. The characters penultimate term will be during the war itself, the final term being during the aftermath and the formation of the Border Worlds.
I'll be using the Sword Worlds character generation rules written by Shannon Appelcline published in Signs and Portents #80 by Mongoose Games.
The big tweak I'll be making to the rules is jump travel. Rather than the classic 1 week jump system, I'll be using a more warp drive type method drawing on the SF works of Ian Banks amongst other sources for how the black boxes work. I'll write up the rule mechanisms in a post of its own, but the principle is that the fuel efficiency will vary dependant on the drive rating, actual speed travelled, the wear and tear on the drive and the skill of the engineer.
