There's a legend shared by criminals, anarchists and sociopaths, by the extremely rich and by those without any hope left at all, of a place where all the laws of civilisation and human decency and swept aside in an orgy of anarchy and violence, pleasure and despair, and revelling in the inevitable entropy that destroys whole planets, wipes out whole species, and which will one day consume the universe in fire. The call it

THE ENTROPARTY

Entropartyists believe that no matter what the living may do, at some point everything will come to an end, and the universe will burn. Nothing is meant to last, no matter how stable or well-made it may seem. According to them, entropy should be embraced with open arms and the end brought about as swiftly (and enjoyably) as possible.

The Entroparty is held intermittently, and never in the same place twice. It always takes place in some great symbol of death and destruction, and the venue rarely survives the entertainment: Sometimes it is a planet being torn apart by volcanic activity, or a flaming asteroid colliding with the sun, or in the midst of the Killing or a Feud World's war. This year, its reputed to take place on an ageing starliner, the Michael Bay.Where it's heading, no one knows. May Jerboos or Utopia, or somewhere equally vile?

The Entroparty is said to attract three kinds of people: Sociopaths and madmen in search of a venue to indulge their whims, the jaded super-rich in search of a thrill, and people with nothing left to lose. Every party is uniquely different, but there are usually elaborate and dangerous games, copious amounts of drugs and alcohol, and lethal brinksmanship about exactly how and when the party will be destroyed, and when the party will degenerate into a desperate mob trying to survive and escape.... Last time, for example, the party was held on the Bacconian homeworld, while it was under nuclear bombardment by the invading Wolrog fleet.

Despite its secrecy, rumours abound in the underworld about the Entroparty, and the celebrities and tycoons who secretly attend. It is as prestigious as it is dangerous: Very.

Extract from the GCA Galactic Encyclopaedia: Due to innovative Tsong corporation lawyers, Tequila City operates under a specific, very advantageous rule of 'asset forfeiture' - statutes that allowed law enforcement agencies to confiscate the property of bootleggers and drug dealers for official use. As a result, many detectives in Tequila City live in beachside apartments, wear 18,000 Cr. comms units, and drive around in hover-porsches. The exact benefit this brings to the crime rate has yet to be properly analysed.


Bounty-Hunting, Tequila City Style....

The Shankle Straw



Rising up from the warm equator of Skybo Tsong, the so-called 'Shankle Straw' is a giant space elevator connecting Tequila City to the orbital depot that is the hub of interstellar alcohol trade. High-powered plasma-lasers send platforms of trade liquor roaring skyward, where the myriad beverage delights of the company are shipped across the quadrant. Far cheaper than shuttles or transports.


Tequila City

Tequila City is the 'second capitol' of Skybo Tsong, a shining new, sun-soaked metropolis on the tropical equator - one of several that sprung up in recent years, forged by Tsongcorp's fiercely competitive subsidiaries. Tequila City specialises in mezcal-based alcohol, and the city is surrounded by vast fields of blue-agave and mezcal-rich cacti (the latter also providing the city with a lucrative source of illicit drugs).

Tsong executives govern the city from the extravagant, up-turned ziggurat known as the 'Chalice-Palace', located at the base of the Shankle Straw. However the city is as famed for its flamboyant organised crime as it is for its tequila! Tame by galactic standards, the gangsters here model themselves on the prohibition celebrities of earth's yesteryear, more tourist attraction than 'real' criminals... but are nevertheless a constant thorn in the company's side, through smuggling and corruption, but they are known to 'play ball' with authorities with regards to trade: "the sauce must flow" is everyone's motto.

Travellers are advised to check out the wide Moonshine Strip that runs almost the length of town. Alive with neon holograms, it's home to countless bars, shows, clubs and gaming tables, all open from dusk til dawn - and also to colouurful characters from the underworld; found at infamous gangster-haunted establishments like the Slippery Nipple Club, the Maguey Worm a Crocket's Casino. Tourists in search of a more scenic view can tour the city by Red-Eye Monorail, or visit outlaying holiday villas, scattered amidst the endless agave fields. 

Beyond the safety of the corporate rent-a-cops and the controlled disreputable delights of the Moonshine Strip, tourists are advised to watch their step - especially in the sprawling favelas controlled by worker's unions and street gangs like the spike-haired Kjotes. Common street weapons in the favelas include the Timmy Thwupper, a cheap and unreliable repeating blaster, and the coa - a circular, chakram-like blade that can be wielded in hand, on an extendable pole, or sent flying from a pistol-like launcher.

The Shankle System



Unfortunately close to the infamous Slavers of Jerboos, the Shankle System is a corporate-owned colony.

The Shankle system holds two worlds: Shankle Prime and Skybo Tsong. Skybo Tsong receives most development, owing to the presence of the Eldorado distillery, distributors of low grade brands of whisky and macmac, favoured drinks across the galaxy.

Shankle is a mining colony owned by Shankle Industries and devoted to the production of various metals mined from the planetís copious reserves. Shankle is noted for its annual hang-gliding championships which take place over the mighty Riverhead Gash, a canyon two kilometres deep and half a kilometre wide. Participants aim to sail the 50 kilometre length in the shortest time, following a complex route that flows through and around a variety of naturally occurring geological obstacles. The race traditionally claims between two and five lives each year but is a popular challenge amongst the adrenalin junkies of the sector.

Skybo Tsong is owned and governed by the Tsong Liquor Corporation. An entire continent is given over to the production of the raw materials for a variety of different alcohol brands distilled and brewed in the vast, city-sized distilleries of Eldorado, Port Tequila, and Glen Fuji. The produce is shipped galaxy wide and its macmac is a popular spirit amongst mutants.

With warehouses everywhere and a complex logistics/ distribution operation dominating the spaceport, security is always a problem on Skybo Tsong (the strange name Skybo is rumoured to be that of a Tsong directorís pet dog) and bootleggers have continually stolen produce from under the administrationís noses. A standard reward of Cr. 25,000 and a lifetimeís supply of macmac is offered to anyone who can bring the bootleggers to justice.

The Transhuman League



Born just before the Strontium Wars of the mid-22nd century, the Transhuman movement has suffered almost as badly as their mutant brothers from humanity's prejudice. In the minds of some, deliberately tweaking their DNA to splice in alien genes is even worse than being a mutant - because they chose to be this way.

In the beginning, only the rich could afford to combine their genes with the best traits of alien races, and this let them get (or stay) off-planet once the wars began. As the years went on however, their wealth and status was whittled away, leaving the Transhuman League as virtual exiles from their own race, endlessly moved on, and slowly forced to the outer colonies. By the modern age, they have become a nomad race, using ancient yachts and pleasure-boats converted into combined squalid colony ships and improvised genetic research labs. They are looking for a planet to make their own, their 'New Jerusalem' where they can finally build the transhumunist community they have dreamt of for generations.

One such ship is the Mayflower VI, under Captain Columbine Jenner.
