"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." (Douglas Adams)

The Dilithium War

For years the Human Federation has expanded into space, its starship systems powered by processed Dilithium ore. Readily-accessible supplies of the mineral have led to population growth and increasing standards of living for all.

The Human Federation now stretches hundreds of light years across the galaxy. But existing supplies of the precious mineral are being steadily exhausted and exploration within Human space is no longer finding suficient replacement stock.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Heavily-armed, long-range ships have been scattered into unexplored space on an urgent mission to seek out new Dilithium supplies. Many of these ships encounter alien life and unexpected dangers - and fail to return.

One ship has just come into orbit around a planet designated Halthor 7. Scans show it to possess vast Dilithium reserves, scattered as raw ore nuggets on the surface. Yet Halthor 7 is unexplored and may contain unfriendly native species. Also, as an Away Team is shuttled to the planet's surface other, unknown alien ships have also just entered orbit.

Can the Dilithium which Humanity so desperately requires be recovered?

The Dilithium War is a Science Fiction freeform of first contact and resource acquisition. The aim will be to play it outside over a (reasonably) wide area. Nerf guns or similar will represent weapons.

Snowden, Mike

The Oracle is in: 5c per pronouncement (in advance, please).

Also known as "Herr Cocktailmeister". Strong men have quaked as they drown a second (or fourth) flagon of whatever Brew I have come upon that night. Women have turned tail and run.

PS - If you need a PA system in a hurry, come and see me.
