The Demon Fanatic
PrefaceIt is the year 2426, and the Golden Age of Piracy is fast approaching its end in the new century. The various factions and empires of the galaxy begin to clamp down on illegal activity inside the Renegade Quadrant. Piracy and criminal activity are actively being rooted out and destroyed with military force, or by the actions of mercenaries and bounty hunters. That isn't stopping the likes of Blackwell's Reavers, of course. Or so its leader, Valencia 'Valkyrie' Blackwell, thought. After years of playing a cat and mouse game with the authorities of the galaxy, Valkyrie finally meets her end at the hands of a former Upyri Marine named Anora Cortus. Abandoning her duties in the Upyri Federation, Anora has become a sort of vigilante, determined to exterminate any pirates or outlaws that dare to cross her path in the Renegade Quadrant. And Valkyrie becomes her newest victim.
Her mother slain, and the Guillotine (the Reavers' capital ship and mobile base) heavily damaged, Lauren Blackwell purchases the Mordred and begins searching for a crew to help her rebuild the broken Blackwell's Reavers and hunt down Anora.
Starpath: Burning Sails is the third RP set in the Starpath universe, created by an individual known as Doomevil on the Facepunch forums starting with Journey Across the Galaxy (though then it was simply called Spaceship Crew RP.) Set in the 24th century, specifically the year 2382, it followed a crew of special individuals as they delivered a package known as 'the Oracle' to a man named Harken Saw. This simple delivery job eventually turns into a galactic incident that changes the galaxy forever. Part 2 of Starpath, known as Scoundrels of the Interstellar Highway, was created and run by K0mori as an expansion and continuation of the Starpath universe. It is set in the year 2385, and follows the travels of the Terika-Belladonna Company (a mercenary group lead by one of the members of the group from the first RP known as Yanim Terika) out to make a difference in the galaxy in the aftermath of the Oracle incident. They get into their own galaxy changing event, in which three 'archives' are found which would eventually be used to awaken a long dormant planetary AI known as Starvis.
Now, Burning Sails picks things up in the year 2426, forty-one years after the previous RP. It follows the travels of Blackwell's Reavers, as they carve a bloody path through the Renegade Quadrant in the waning years of the Golden Age of Piracy in the quest for vengeance.
If you wish to read through the first two RPs, don't hesitate to ask!
This RP is currently a closed RP, but might potentially open for new players later. Keep an eye on it!
As GM, I control various NPCs in the story, but some may be controlled by players. All events will be under my direction. Feel free to throw ideas at your fellow players. I want you guys to have fun!
Rules1. Please, be nice.
