Beginning the Game
In the far future humanity has perfected artificial fabrication technology.
We are able to terraform planets, repopulate worlds with Earth wildlife, and produce any necessity with a fabricator.
Our planet was one terraform project of many...until our rush to gain wealth from our new world led to the accidental creation of a disease that killed more than a quarter of our population.
The Interstellar Union placed our planet under quarantine; our fabricators, astrotech, and interstellar travel was disabled with a kill-switch. The Overseers dictated regulations on every aspect of our lives. They co-opted the Feed to supervise our compliance, an unblinking surveillance system that watches and catalogs every moment of every life.
For generations the Planetborn have negotiated for an end to the quarantine. For generations we were told to follow instructions and regulations, and then faced reinterpretation whenever we filed proof of our compliance.
As for us? We are the seventh generation since the quarantine began. We know that following the regulations will never change anything. So now we need to find a new way to freedom. We need to resist.
