Hey, so I'm finally pulling the trigger on a campaign idea that's been a pet project of mine for a while now. It's a game where the players are resistance fighters on Europa after a Jovian invasion of the planet.
The game will start in April of AF 10. In March of AF 10, the Jovian Republic struck Europa in a surprise attack. It was initiated when commando teams took control of all but one of the elevators that was capable of transferring people to the surface. At the same time, the Space Force Fleet moved into orbit around Europa beginning to interdict all traffic in and out of the moon. Ground forces soon landed and took control of all of the surface facilities. After a day and a half the final elevator was take by Junta forces.
After four days passed, the fleet began placing a satellite net in orbit around the moon. Dubbed the “Static Curtain” these satellites were capable of corrupting all radio and and neutrino signals to and from Europa. Laser communications continued to function, but their limited utility as they required the device to be both on the surface, and within line of sight of the target.
In the previous month, Junta forces have begun grasping at control of the below the surface habitats. They have gained full control of roughly half of the habitats that rested at the top of the icy crust and connected to the surface, and have partial control of each of the remaining ones. Only the most remote of underwater habitats maintain full control.
I've created an In Character document to sum up the changes since the Jovian Junta has taken control. See here.
Let me know what you guys think. Any feedback and suggestions would be very helpful.
