Resurgence Of Yamatai

Resurgence Of Yamatai is a roleplaying plot created December 15, 2020 by GM Wes.

Plot Overview

With the Kuvexians defeated, the Yamatai Star Empire once again becomes the dominant force in the Kikyo Sector. In the aftermath of a costly war, the newly-constructed YSS Resurgence sets out to help the Empire take stock of what is left, both in known and unknown space, and to rebuild not only Yamatai's defenses but its relationships with their neighbors. Players will join Star Army's founder and first game master, Wes, on an epic journey to visit every corner of the Star Army universe as well as expanding it with new levels of detail.​

RPG Rating:

  • L1 (rare profanity)
  • S2 (non-explicit sexual content)
  • V2 (violence but not super graphic)

The plot would be based on a Fuji or Plumeria 2E and it would basically be on a trip to visit as many places in the setting as possible and do some interesting RP - basically ground around improving the setting's detail as a whole, adding history, fleshing out the Star Army universe, and having fun RP along the way that would be a “life in the Star Army” plot with lots of exploration, some smaller-scale combat but not all the time (Kuvexian leftover need cleanup!) and some diplomacy as we visit worlds of other factions and meet non-Yamataian ships. The idea would be to start at Yamatai and kind of work our way out. We will also discover new stuff. But keep in mind there's a lot of already canon systems with very little development that are just as ripe for building on.

Rules and Pacing

  • Would like to start in January 2021
  • Not sure who the captain will be yet. Might be my NPC or might be a PC. (If PC, influences where we go next)
  • Will have at least one “old salt” NCO NPC who can provide solid advice and GM insight to any player leadership
  • Ship may not necessarily be built when the plot starts - might be cool to kind of watch it happen and a good excuse to wander around planet Yamatai initially.
  • Accepting new players on a regular basis is a major OOC goal. Would be an “easy flow” plot where people can come and go easily.
  • Not every character has to be in every episode
  • We will try to invite a lot of guest stars to RP with us and touch the other ships and factions as much as possible instead of staying in an RP bubble
  • Probably max of 10 active players but the ship is big enough that we can drag around semi-inactive players who don't post much lol
  • Forum posting mainly but…
  • would like to do occasional self-contained JP “Mission in a day” episodes so we can accomplish more. It would be OK to miss these if you can't make them.
