Seeds on the Galactic Winds
In the years following the Great War, a multitude of Star Trader Factions embarked on a great journey. Lead by the legendary Ardok Shalun the World Ships fled, hoping to leave the war-ravaged Galactic Core behind. Under the protective might of the Templar Fleet, hundreds of thousands of Star Trader ships began the migration to their promised home among the distant stars. The journey was long, the dangers were many, and countless were lost.
Star Traders RPG tells the story of the six Factions who ended their Exodus in the Farfallen Rim, founding a new galactic core and working to rebuild their civilization and prized society.
Star Traders 4X: Empire in Exile will invite you to tell the stories of other survivors – those Star Traders who stopped short of the Farfallen Rim, lost, tired of the endless travel, or too slow to keep pace. Alone, and without the protection of the mighty Templars, the leadership of these Factions look to find new homeworlds and carve out their own quadrants.
