Re: Would they be outlaws?

While in general, baring an unusually vindictive justice system, I would say no in an ordinary criminal sense. HOWEVER, the third imperium is feudal, with feuding houses from the Imperial family on down. Feudal house systems have a nasty historical precedent of "don't leave defeated house members(in...

Re: Jumpspace - What Does It Look Like IYTU?

You know in lot of ways... I always preferred the B5 jumpspace to the traveller one. It was red and gaseous. you jumped in, and then navigation was treacherous, stay on the shipping lane mapped with beacons or risk becoming lost.

Re: Plot Idea..Wrangels Fleet..Fleet stuck in Exile

Another factor on the Vargr fleet. The Imperial navy officers realize that if this bunch turns corsair.. they are going to try to treat their Imperial refuge as their corsair base and its going to be one of the largest in history.. And they are pissed big time and want their payback revenge.. The sm...
