As a small part of the back-story for a current adventure, some NPCs turned out to be former members of the ruling class of Fortuna, a main belt asteroid. In 2 AF there was a popular rebellion and the NPCs wisely decided to requisition a parked spacecraft, leaving for safer places. It would be fun to develop this back-story a bit more. It is largely unimportant for my adventure, but political upheavals are great adventure seeds/background decoration. Here are a few things that are determined: 19 Fortuna is a fairly resource-rich asteroid, likely colonized by some national state or hypercorp(s) early on. At some point, likely during the 30-40 BF upheavals, it became wholly or partially independent thanks to the Belt Independence Movement. It might have been taken over by a revolutionary worker's council and/or an Argonaut faction. After the Fall popular rebellion broke out - I think we can safely infer that the ruling class by that time had mismanaged things badly enough, were blamed for bad things occurring during the Fall, or some more subtle political machinations led to the shift (influence from the PC? Extropians? the Autonomist Alliance?) At least one of the escapees was a creepy psychosurgeon/social engineering expert responsible for maintaining social cohesion (boy, did he fail!) Any ideas? What happened? Where is Fortuna now? What is Firewall doing? Have fun!
