The Galaxy Guard patrols the mean streets and spaceways, keeping the law-abiding citizens of the Galactic Federation safe from criminal scum. From the rookie beat cop to the grizzled detective, all are part of the thin blue line that separates order from anarchy. So grab your badge and blaster, and go bust some perps!
Once we've got players, we can talk about your characters a bit, though we'll do the bulk of character creation during the first session. It shouldn't take more than an hour and a half. Unless everyone would like to go for the "make up a character on the fly" option, we can start playing within 30 minutes!
In terms of characters, think about whether you are a detective or a beat cop...which department you might be in...and if you have any kind of special powers, like psionics or alien physiology. Think space opera heroes and your favorite fictional cops.
We'll also need to discuss some things about the Galactic Federation. What's the tech level? Are there aliens? What planets are part of your jurisdiction? Of course, I can go ahead and answer all of these questions myself, but I'd like your input so that you can make the character you want, and have it fit.
