    Author: Capellan
    Number of Threads: 1

    Type: Sci-Fi, Humour.
    System: Spaceship Zero
    Setting: The Solar System

    Started: 25 August 2003
    Status: Active
    Average Installment Length: Short-Medium.
    Average Frequency of Installments: Anything from every 2 days to every 3 months.

    Available for Download? First two episodes are available in ENworld's Downloads section.
    Style: 3rd person narrative prose.

    Overview: It is the year 2023. Mankind has come together under the benevolent aegis of the United Earth Government, and has spread throughout the solar system. From the dense jungles of Venus to the dusty wastes of Pluto; from Saturn's rings to the moons of Jupiter; men can be found, living and working for a better tomorrow.

    That tomorrow is now.

    Deep within Mission City - capital of the UEG - lies the laboratory of Doctor Alois Gustav, mankind's most brilliant mind. The Doctor's latest invention; his greatest ever; is finally complete. The XS-Pathfinder, a new spaceship equipped with the Doctor's experimental Q-Drive, is ready to blast off on its first mission.

    What lies beyond the familiar solar system, in the cold reaches of dark space? Is there intelligent life, friendly or foul?

    Join the dedicated crew of the Pathfinder:

    * Captain John Fury
    * the Venusian Princess, S'Ondra
    * Doctor Gustav; and
    * Archie the Robot

    As they throw the switch on the Q-Drive and blast off to adventure!

    Style: 3rd person narrative prose, with occasional winks to the underlying mechanics.

    Overview: The very world of Arcanis is threatened by an ancient, mad god who once destroyed the elven pantheon. Now he has returned, and sows destruction and chaos across the land, even as the various kingdoms struggle for supremacy. The best hope is the children: sons of kings, half-angels, and even the progeny of a god. Will Kham ever get rid of Fleshripper? Will Quintus and Ilmare ever get together? Will Calactyte ever learn to read? All these questions and more will be answered...eventually.

    Style: 3rd person narrative prose with script form dialogue, with occasional player comments.

    Overview: If you've watched Firely, you've seen the Big Damn Heroes. Well, these ain't them. Ruthless Bastards is a much more fitting title for this group. After all, the nicest member of the crew is the sadistic doctor. Come watch as a bunch of moraless bastards show that, while you can be overly competant in your field and still be terrible at crime. Comedy is usually a strong point, mixed in between their ruthless inefficiency.

    Reader comment sniffles: Is it just me or did all of the players want to play Jayne?
