They were right. They were right all along. The "hippies", the "scaremongers", all of them were right. Climate change proved to be no sham. Within 120 years, the Earth went from 70% water to 85%. Some took to boats. Some stayed on land. It became clear that the only solution lay in space. You were one of those picked to live aboard the ship.
All of humanity's best and brightest took to these ships. Yours set off for Sirius. Today, you have woken up.

Okay, but I may have to change your name. Let's see what Darkfire45 says about it...
Anyway, you wake up, cold and aching, in a pod full of ice. As you fall out of the pod, you notice what appears to be a firefight going on between a team of combat drones and a mysterious alien figure.
Also, before you play you must read the rules thoroughly.

The teleport chip will have to go, I'm afraid. So will the magnets. However, you could have electromagnetic implants that do the same thing. Back to the story:
After a while, a bunch more drones come in. The aliens are overwhelmed and bolt, leaving some pretty cool loot in their wake.

Well, that was weird. You wake up feeling like crap, and try to go back to sleep. Then you become aware of the fact that you're defrosting. You hurl yourself out of the pod, painfully colliding with a weird-looking, angry, tall brown thing. Then its sidearm goes off and kills it.

Huzzah! The drones identify you as a passenger and fly off in the direction of the aliens. You find some sort of energy pistol and something yellow and spiky.

Indeed you can! Hooray, this thread isn't dead and replaced with *shakes fist* "UNNS Vortex"! Now then, let the Forum Games arms race begin! You wake up in a pod. As the door opens and you look around, you see a large heap of damaged combat drones with a holographic sign saying "PLEASE REPAIR" in large red letters.

I inspect the damaged combat drones while also looking around for any tools I can use.

On analysis, the drones prove to be damaged by some kind of laser-plasma weapon. The tools provided seem able to fix it, but it'll be a tricky job as you've no experience dealing with damage of this sort. However, it looks doable with the available (and very advanced-looking) tools.
