Dear Sir or Madam, It is the greatest honor for any parent to have their child be given the opportunity to protect the Federation. We are pleased to inform you that your child has been accepted at Heinlein Station's School of Stellar Warfare. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary steps to secure your space in the school. Term begins on 1 September. We await your response no later than 25 July. Yours sincerely, Rear Admiral Chance Hudson Chancellor of Heinlein Station It has been 15 years since the end of the Cyber Uprising, an attempt by cybernetic supremacists to overthrow the democratic Federation lead by the first cyborg ADAM. Killing or converting the other cyborgs, the Cyber Uprising brought the Federation to its knees as humanity struggled against the augmented foe. Finally defeated in the Battle of the New ISS, ADAM was forced to flee the solar system into dark space. Fearful of his eventual return, the School of Stellar Warfare at Heinlein Station was set up taking in students from every corner of the world to train into elite soldiers. But with so many years having past since the war people have begun to relax and turn soft. Completely unaware of the threat that looms from beyond our sun. ---- Well it took four months but I have finally gained a new idea to try out. Welcome to Constellations an AC taking heavy inspiration from Ender's Game and Harry Potter. We will be running with FATE rules as per the usual. By this point I assume you all know enough about it, but if you need assistance find me on AChat. There is no magic in the game, +4 ladder is being used along with 3 stunts (unless you wish to sacrifice refresh for more).
