Long before the society we have today there were the Ancients, a powerful and intelligent species of precursor Elysian that traveled the stars in pursuit of knowledge and technology. With the disappearance of the Ancients occurring far before any historical records, little is known of this old civilisation or the technology and power they once wielded. Over the years many attempts to unlock their secrets were tried and all have failed bringing us no closer than we were before and only creating more questions to seek out answers for. However, something has stirred the decrepit old structures of the Empyrean catacombs, large enough to cause some excitement among the government which oversees its research, and small enough to avoid any publicity. The Secrets of the Ancients are surfacing for a reason unknown and call for someone to discover the true knowledge of the precursor society. A Pandora’s box is about to open with the sought-after knowledge at its centre and many more secrets that have been buried for many years, events ingrained in time itself are being set into motion. Diving headfirst into the unfolding mystery of the Ancients is a small Elysian expeditionary team manning the ECV Raven in the name of historical discovery, captained by Icarus Asellio who has experience in starship command and its function. Acting on authority of Barachiel, he and his team will investigate the ruins of the Ancients and attempt to unlock the secrets of the civilisation of the past while retaining limited contact with their sponsor to avoid any failure being traced back to their involvement. Fame and glory await those who can succeed the trials while failure may cost you your life. I know there is a few people who I have spoken to about this and know the gist of the mad ideas I formed into a plot, basically it's intended to be a dedicated Elysian plot where a group of civilians are tasked with investigating the Ancients. It's not an exploration plot but rather an adventure and slight puzzle solver one, combat will be included but will be nowhere near regular. gonna tag @FrostJaeger to make sure I didn't bumble this up and full disclaimer, I have not got as much GM experience as some people way want for a plot leader so I may spend a lot of time between posts trying to make sure its enjoyable, if the plot actually starts anyway the plot page is here and for further info I'm happy to reply to questions in this thread and uhh, hopefully I don't suck at this!
