Last week we burned the World for our first BE game. Xi-Borbon used to be a very High Index World that thrived on it’s rich coltane deposits, but many generations ago a civil war the world aflame and it’s whole surface became toxic. A power merchant league obtained permission from the emperor to exploit whatever’s left and now there are many domed flying cities from where the League runs a highly profitable coltane business.
My character is a prince, a member of the royal faction that only nominally runs the world. The thing is, all that high index technology that used to be in the surface is probably still there, hard to reach, but very useful to someone who’s looking to make the nobles run the planet again.
The thing is, how should I go about this in-game? What sort of skills and specialists do I need for my grail-quest?
Also, if making this high index technolgy available again should make a big impact on the world, what could be a suitable Phase Objective?
