Plot Details

A small group of Plumeria have been assigned a simple mission - go behind enemy lines and seek out targets of opportunity to pull attention away from the war front. While the battle group is in FTL, their Continuum Distortion Drives behave strangely - destroying some ships outright and sending others careening through space.

Stranded in a heavily damaged ship, with no sign of the others in their battle group, a lone Plumeria has to use the scant resources at their disposal to restore the failing vessel and deal with the ancient, dormant threats of an unfamiliar sector.

But the Kuvexian War will not pass the ship and its crew by. Hunted by the wounded remnants of a Kuvexian fleet and surrounded by alien threats, the crew of the YSS Kanagawa will have to use their wits and battle prowess to see their way home.

Rules and Pacing

YSS Kanagawa is primarily a play-by-post Roleplay found on the Star Army boards. Joint Posts (“JPs”) and/or discord RP may be used supplementally.

If a character has not had a chance to respond, the GM may decide where they go or what they're doing in order to maintain continuity. Efforts will be made to avoid putting characters into undesirable situations without their player's approval.
