The Unification War has been over for only 6 years, not that long. Memories are vivid. The losers may be bitter and disillusioned or they might just want to forget and move on. The winners may be insufferable and gloat over their fallen foes or they could feel proud that they did what was required of them. Each adventure has something to do with the Unification War. It’ll be up to your Crew to figure out what that “something” is, and then deal with the situation in your own way—and finish the job, of course.
The heroes are supposed to act heroic sometimes. Be wary of playing a character who is nasty, evil, no-good skunk. Some greedy scoundrel-types are acceptable, but there’s a limit. Flawed people are interesting, but flat-out evil folk will end up locked up or—more likely—on the wrong end of a gun barrel.
The Echoes of War is a series of pre-built adventures modeled after the traditional five-act television episode. Each game session will be a single episode, and should last between 2 to 4 hours. The EoW episodes are designed for a 3-5 player crew, who, while not necessarily Alliance opponents nonetheless prefer to fend for themselves out in the black taking care of themselves and their own.
