One More Shift

One More Shift

0 INK

[1x1] One engineer and one scientist, whiling away their time at a lunar mining base before they get a vacation. Just one more shift to go.

Introduction

Born in the midst of the Second Cold War of 2014-2021, the Archium Era began with a simple move: the launch of the Sol 1 rover by the then-fledgeling ArmuCorp. Seen as one of the biggest gambles in the history of business, the mission aimed to discover harvestable resources on the moon. While hundreds of proxy wars raged on back on the human homeworld, Sol 1 spent months digging through the lunar rock, largely ignored on Earth, while the newly-founded Coalition of Free Nations and the Noviy Soyuz waged war.

Until one day, after the dust of the proxy wars had settled, the rover hit gold; or, more accurately, Archium.

Archium was an element unlike any other; a universal reactant. Combine it with Uranium for a potent energy source; combine it with Iron for an incredibly tough alloy. It was incredibly valuable, for purposes both civilian and military in nature, and now ArmuCorp laughed at the world by winning its gamble. So soon after the last wars, a new one started; a corporate war.

With the Coalition-backed ArmuCorp on the frontlines, hundreds of thousands of people flooded space in search of employment in the world's most lucrative business: Archium mining and sale.

Yet, while working as a Lunar Mining Officer has the benefits of good pay, good views, and good stories, a million sources of danger and a million ways to go mad all press in on one's psyche. And, of course, staring into the deepness of space is a good way to feel very, very lonely...
