THIS MUD IS CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT AND IS BUILT UPON THE NAKEDMUD CODEBASE:
A second monumental space race propelled the citizens of Earth into a new Era of science and technology. This was brought on by the discovery of the Commission for Natural Elements [CNE], which stated that the axis of the Earth was accelerating exponentially into an oblique angle. Within the next 500 years, Earth would cease to offer a viable option for life.
This sparked the 2nd historical space race. Within 200 years, Mars and the Earth's moon had become platforms for further research and development. Mars' atmosphere had been injected with microbial elements that had, over 100 years, transformed the planet into an acceptable habitat for human life. Transports were beginning to shuttle Earth's inhabitants to Mars.
In 410 P.D. [Post-Discovery], a brutal war had erupted on all the known human inhabited planets in the system, fueled by the claims of private sector espionage and New World Order mentality. Those fortunate enough to escape did so by embarking out in whatever vessels were available.
The S.S. Hope is the setting of this MUD. A lone settlement ship with moderate defenses that has propelled itself out into space with hopes of settling on a new world. It is now 1214 P.D. and no suitable planets have yet been discovered. Scientists have worked for years trying to develop atmospheric enrichment techniques in order to produce habitable planetary environments, so far with fruitless endeavors.
You are a member of the crew. You could be the savior of this ship.
