From the campaign:

Era: The Consortium is the story of a Colony Ship launched from Earth and the habitable world it discovers, Taranis. The game follows the inhabitants of Taranis as they create a society, encounter alien races and explore the space nearby.

The game allows the GM and players to choose where to begin playing - at any point during the 500 years of history. You can be the first scouts to explore new planets and areas of space, experience the wonder of discovering new alien races, command a ship in wars spanning entire solar systems, and join a Resistance movement against the government to save or destroy billions of lives.


Shades of Vengeance has posted up the beta rules for Era: The Consortium, their new sci-fi tabletop RPG, on their Kickstarter campaign. You can get the rules if you're a backer.

From the campaign:

Earth is a distant memory, all but forgotten, any remaining stories from the Human homeworld are now legends, handed down verbally. The Consortium stretches across three star systems, with twelve inhabited planets. Several wars have coloured the history of the Consortium, notably the Bug War between the Humans and Ximians; the events surrounding a raider named Shaun Hardcastle; and the conflict with the Resistance, which still continues. While the situation cannot be described as stable (as there are those who believe the Consortium is on the brink of civil war), in 447CE people do not live in fear of their lives on a day to day basis.

From the campaign:

It is the "future" and Earth, the planet where the Consortium was really born, is nothing more than a distant memory. In order to understand the present, I have believed my whole life, you have to understand the past. On this night, the last before I join the true government of the Consortium, I feel a need to gather my lifetime of research on how Humanity reached this stage. All I’ve ever managed to find are small snippets of evidence, and I’ve made my own assumptions from these. Perhaps you’ll find them amusing or perhaps, like me, you’ll detect the ring of truth in the story.

Not much is known of Earth beyond the name – almost all of the records, particularly those around the launch of the Kurmaja, have been lost. What we do know is that for several decades after Humanity first ventured beyond the atmosphere of their biological cradle, they did very little – conducted a few cursory scans of nearby planetary bodies, but little more. It seems safe to assume, given what we know of Humanity, that they were intent on finishing business at home, be that simple politics or old grudges between nations. While the records of the following years pulled from the Kurmaja's databanks are sketchy and damaged, it seems Humanity pulled themselves together at long last and colonized every planet in their home system.
