Galactic Destinations: The Ghost of Mali

“It turned and bit! It turned and bit,
And what was left behind them?
The tractor swallowed soil and soul,
And threw out blood behind them.”
Local Oral History, The Ghost of Mali, Alpha Centauri System.

For those that live on The Ghost of Mali station, the Catastrophe marked the end of an era of unquestioning trust and the beginning of an age of skepticism and fear of technology. Once a highly automated agricultural station, the mass destruction that occurred during the Catastrophe was credited to the malfunction of the multitude of machines and, despite the First Law, residents have grown hateful and suspicious of technology ever since. For some, that ignorance-bred fear may be authentic, but for others, this convenient excuse is seized upon in order to exploit cheap labor in the form of bond servants.

Galactic Destinations: The Court of Fools

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the songs of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!

– Unknown, ancient Earth

When the Catastrophe struck, each station was affected and reacted in a different manner. It is perhaps this singular fact that has created such a tumultuous state of affairs in trying to reclaim our civilization. Concurrently, it has also given rise to a plethora of fascinating communities and locales for the enterprising traveler to explore! Galactic Destinations is proud to present The Court of Fools, a colorful and unique area borne of the events that occurred after the Catastrophe on Bordeaux station.

Survivors of the Catastrophe are naturally resourceful thinkers, and anything, from a busted pipe to an energy-blast hand-cannon, can and will be used for both defense and offence. Previously, with The Art of the Guns we offered a glimpse into specific gun types found in Tau Station. Today, we present you with other various tools of survival; all able to be used when conflicts come into play.
