[DramaScape] Star Map 02

Star Map 02 is a 40 x 40 inch Battlemap with Hex, Square and No Overlay and comes with the VTT file (Virtual Table top).

“Why have The Depurators come for us so soon? This planet has not even been terraformed completely yet? We will defend this world and its vast resources with our very lives!”
—Human Soldier

Star Map 02 has a brown-green planet with an atmosphere in the foreground with a vast antennae galaxy in the background.

Star Map 02 is intended for use in war games set in space or science fiction roleplaying games with large-scale mass combats.

Space Refugees: As the two galaxies of the Antennae Nebula began to merge into one, refugees fled the doomed galaxies and spread outward. One of these alien races from another galaxy were soon named The Depurators by human observers who watched them cleanse colony after colon, killing millions of humans and leaving living worlds as nothing but barren rocks in space. The Depurators are insectoid oxygen breathers with huge antennae on their head where ears would be on a human, body with four arms, and a thorax with two legs.

When the core worlds learned of the new threat, they sent an expeditionary military force to begin a terraforming operation in between the core worlds and the encroaching border of The Depurators in the frontier. The world was an ice planet, with most of the seas and lakes being made of hydrocarbons rather than water, and an atmosphere mostly comprised of hydrogen. Humanity began a process to change the world into one of water and oxygen suitable for human life. The Depurators invaded en-masse before the terraforming even ended surprising the humans. The Depurators brought a massive fleet this time instead of a single Depurator and a few guardian ships. They intend to break the humans here.

Thus sets the stage for a massive confrontation in space with the potential results being turning back the aliens or the way to Sol paved for the aliens.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
