Distant Past Future

Session 1 - A Strange Awakening

Like waking from a strange, forgotten dream to be thrown into a nightmare, a diverse group of individuals finds themselves coming out of a haze in what appears to be a holding chamber. Wearing just basic clothing and knee-deep in water, they examine the room. It has slippery metal-paneled walls and a heavy prison-style door with a small barred window, unlit save for a small hole in the ceiling. Each person finds a mostly fresh tattoo on their right breast, a letter and two digits. Unable to recall much other than images of marching through the forest together, there is little to do but try to escape, and as they decide to, the room jostles and shakes violently. Peering through the tiny window, one can see a scene of recent chaos. Blast marks, rubble, sparking wires, and dripping pipes. With few words, the rag tag group works together to bust down the door – the frenzied Wookie slipping and accidentally dowsing himself.

Upon exiting, they find themselves in a hallway full of similar cells. What is this place? Farther on, they make quick work of exploring their new environment, discovering “Minar Genetic Corps” on a computer panel, a video log of the apparent ship’s captain describing, amid what may be the flashing lights of combat in the background, a chaotic turn of events involving unspecified crew going mad, a mysterious shockwave, and finding no choice but to abandon ship, medical testing facilities, several floors near the bottom of the ship of post-crash destruction, and a vicious drug-inducing medical droid on the fritz.

Upon exiting to the surface, the group is surprised to be in a forest, yet not the one they remember being in. One which affects their senses in an odd way. The colors are all wrong, vibrant and almost imperceptibly shifty. The plants are weirdly proportioned and hard to focus on, as if they are closer than they appear. Or is it farther? The remnants of the crash are evident, a trail of snapped and uprooted trees, burnt scrap metal, craters, and the odd silence that follows heavy recent events.

Where will they go now? Maybe the documents they found in the captain’s office listing them as being captured on New Coruscant and confirming their abduction for the purpose of being genetic test subjects will help them decide. It would seem obvious the only way they will get anywhere is to work in union to piece together what may prove to be a difficult mystery of origin.
