Genesis mod for Freelancer

A Freelancer fansite featuring the Genesis mod by Gibbon

The story so far...

 

 

Sirius is recovering from the after effects of the Nomad War. Normal life is starting to resume and old rivalries are resurfacing. Naval forces from all the major houses regularly patrol their space and it seems their presence is both welcomed and resented, depending which side of the fence you're sitting on. Some see it as an excuse for more money to be spent by governments on their armed forces, the various governments see it as securing their space... just in case the Nomads should return.

Rumours of more intense battles in the Omicron sectors between the pirate factions is standard chat at most bars. It seems these deadly pirates have not been idle during the Nomad war and have been salvaging some of the larger fighting ships left floating around after some of the great battles that were fought, and have been refitting these ships for their own uses.

Even more bizarre rumours circulating are that a fully intelligent simian race has been discovered willing to trade with humans, although that story might be a little bit too much to believe. Having said that, a new beverage is circulating out in the outlying sectors which is proving most popular, allegedly made by these same bipeds and named  banana beer. Those that have tried it found it a very fine brew indeed. None has reached the inner systems in Sirius yet, but large profits are to be made by those that can get hold of any. So the story goes...

Sightings of a creature that actually lives in space named the Razid, have surfaced from the Tau systems. This benevolent creature floats around asteroid fields devouring rocks for nourishment. Scientists have already noted the fantastic chemical composition of its eggs leading to the law enforcecment community to immediately declare them a protected species, making the trade in any Razid eggs illegal.

A new era of exploration is underway, with new systems to discover and people to meet, items to trade or relieve somebody of.

The war of words between the Corsairs and Red Hessians has now escalated to all out war, with Omega 5 declared a designated warzone. Enter at your peril.

Only a few years have passed since the Nomad Wars, but the pirate situation in the border worlds has now reached epidemic proportions. Many of the larger factions now have larger craft to attack the unsuspecting trader or company transport. The war of words between the Corsairs and Red Hessians has now escalated to all out war, with Omega 5 declared a designated warzone. Enter at your peril.

----- >>>>>

The smaller pirate factions seem to have been upgrading as well, with many now using small and maneuverable freighters to ferry various goods to their bases. These small convoys are not the easy pickings they once were, and caution is advised should you decide to attack.

----- >>>>>

While the Nomads were resolutely beaten during the war, "it's only a matter of time before they return" claimed Edison Trent, Liberty representative of the Order and hero of the Nomad Wars who has been monitoring the situation. There have been many reported sightings already in numerous systems, with the house naval forces on a heightened state of alert.

----- >>>>>

The discovery of an asteroid eating spacefaring lifeform, the 'Razid', has caused a major stir in academic circles. This creature apparently consumes the minerals it finds in the asteroids for nourishment. It's eggs have become somewhat of a collectors item due to the high concentration of a diamond like substance which is much sought after for research purposes. The four main houses have declared the 'Razid' creature a protected species, with heavy penalties aimed at anyone caught in possession of the valuable eggs.

----- >>>>>

The emergence of the Simian Trade Federation was another major coup for the Zoners after one of their pilots came to the aid of a stricken convoy populated by an intelligent Simian species, capable of spaceflight. The Simians major export, banana beer, is now a favourite tipple of the masses. Its numbers are controlled by the Zoners who are undermanned to say the least regarding the distribution of this most popular beverage. Much favoured by the pirate clans as well, some in the press claim that the 'Beer Wars' have started, with many convoys coming under attack from pirates. Many independent traders have sought to locate the source of this magnificent brew, but the Zoners are staying very tight-lipped about the location of the Simian homeworld, preferring to sell you the item themselves. Search at your own risk.

A major upgrade across Sirius has been the update of the popular tradelane system by Ageira Technologies. They claim their new tradelanes are easier to dock with, plus they can be seen from much farther away due to their new 'Illumo' lighting system. Dock with one today to experience it!

----- >>>>>

A more bizarre rumour currently doing the rounds in many space bars, is the alleged sighting of a sleeper ship motoring at speed through the outer reaches of some systems. Some would say the pilots who claim to have seen the ship, have had a bottle or two too many. The major houses have sent out a few ships in an attempt to try and track the vessel, assuming it exists of course! If it does exist, the obvious question is who built it? Is there anyone aboard? More importantly, where have they been? More on this when we have something to report.

Stay tuned for the latest news...
