In the distant future mankind has colonized a number of other planets. To keep in contact and to keep trade routes steady large tracks were constructed between the planets. Every month intergalactic trains travel across these laser tracks from one planet to another.
These journeys are not always safe however. Due to budget costs there is very little security on the trains and dangers are always lurking in deep space. Space bandits riding robot ponies are known to raid trains. Infection is also known to break out on long journeys with no cure. Despite these dangers there is much money to be had in new colonies and temptations of wealth or simple escapism for the troubles on Earth outweigh the risks these journeys pose.
Welcome one and all to the Laser Train of Doom. You, the player, will embark on an epic quest of adventure and discovery upon a train(so not that epic, and really not that much to explore). If you have not already done so please make a character in the sign up thread(even if you're not intending to play, I can steal your character and us it as an npc).
Once your character is made I'll pm you where you can start role playing on the train. To get an idea of the different parts of the train see the map attached to this post. Once you have your location you're free to start wrecking havoc, rocking out, making tea or whatever it is you crazy adventurers do. Simply post where you're starting and get role playing.
Just a reminder there is a dice mechanic in the game. You needn't worry too much about it, simply role play away and I'll roll where appropriate. Enjoy.
