In old Kohanian legend, before the time of space flight and biological weapons of war, Altomir was the main figure of a cautionary tale of futility. A great bear-like beast that spanned the stars in the sky, Altomir is said to be the end of all of Kohana. Without fear of its inhabitants, the deity would swallow Kohana whole, ending time. However, from this event, it is said that life would eventually sprout anew over time, and Kohana would flourish again.
One of many DD5 Destroyers built for Nepleslia's 1st Assault Fleet, the NSS Altomir is a vessel meant to be first into the fight, and last to leave. Bristling with guns on the outside, men and women of iron soul beneath the metal flesh, and under the command of one of Nepleslia's most infamous Grand Admirals, the Altomir is a vessel built for war, but meant for glory.
Led by Flint Vanderhuge, the soldiers of Nepleslia's Star Military will work with the living legend himself to secure the future of Nepleslia in a shattered and hostile universe. Their ultimate victory, however distant, is reached through their peerless teamwork and dauntless courage.
These are the men and women who will change Nepleslia forever.
The NSS Altomir is a military-centric plotship that will deal with Nepleslia's struggle with the NMX, with a heavy focus on both combating the enemy and overcoming the innate struggles of Nepleslia and its society. Players should expect plenty of action in a wide variety of locations and situations, but plenty of time for their characters to develop themselves outside of combat as well.
Grand Admiral Flint Vanderhuge leads an assortment of soldiers as both his personal guard and special strike team, meant for missions of great importance to the NSS Altomir and Nepelslia as a whole. A wide assortment of men and women, specializing in many aspects, will be needed; combat specialists, vehicle pilots (both air and land), engineers and medics, all circles of the military will be handy for the completion of each mission. Players are encouraged to develop and use their characters abilities to their fullest, as on the Altomir, specialists will be just that; special.
