GENERAL PLOT for starbase operations. The middle section is devoted to
docking with vessels and civilian quarters.
You have been hired by an eccentric Nyjetian governor,
Benjamin “Bones” Gemini, to assassinate an Alliance
Sector Admiral. Sun Admirals are powerful and influential
individuals who control the Military resources of an
Alliance in a star-sector.

Along the way, the Venturing Crew will undiscover deep


conspiracies, kill an Alliance Admiral and try to get away
with it.

The Alliance employs this man to control the
environment. He deploys trigger happy officers who
relish in their near-absolute power over citizens. Casteel
gets the job done, but sometimes at the expense of
freedoms and sometimes civilian life.

THE GEMINI CORPORATI ON

One of the wealthiest corporations in the Nyjetian


Economic Consortium, the Gemini Corporation is focused
in exclusive resorts, premium real estate, interactive
media, space cruises and sport entertainment.

It is ran by a controversial Governor named Benjamin


“Bones” Gemini. He has been alive longer than Humans
should be alive. There are several wild speculations as to
who or what Benjamin really is. Rumors as bizarre as
Benjamin being a vampire of sorts or simply clones of a
clone. There is one rumor that he has found “the
fountain of youth” and never ages. His unnatural long life
has made him very wealthy.

Beyond Benamin’s apparent immortality, he has a quite a


playboy reputation. He is known for wild parties on his
space yachts with outlandish space toys. He is a man of
gambling, cigars, real estate and funding venturing
companies.

He does not contact his ventures personally, he sends


Gemini middle-management types to do that kind of
work.

understood what the temple was, nor was he ever

He soon flunked out of school and started his own

mafia organizations. He started off small, but gradually
grew more of a name for himself earning his way up to
various crew positions until he reached Pilot. He

CHARLES BROWN (PC)

HUMAN – NYJETIAN ECONOMIC CONSORTIUM


SENTRY: OVERWATCH

Charles grew up in a remote part of the system. He


dropped out of school and tried to make a living farming.
He was not successful. He did learn how to shoot during
his farming days, as Xeno critters would raid his crops
daily. Broke and a good shot, Charles went on to sign up
for a Venture. He had nothing else to lose.

Charles is sharp and a realist. Some would say he’s bitter.


Don’t talk about politics around him, it will lead to a
heated debate about the Alliance and how “good” it
really is.

GR33N was trained to be a “Computer Operative” for the

but because she was abandoned by her family and left at
the Alliance’s footsteps. She was picked by some scummy
politician to fill a quota to check off boxes to meet
“diversity” requirements.

While growing up, she quickly became aware that she


was just a pawn for the Alliance. No one really cared
