The Adventure Seed
A large portion of humanity has embarked on a project of immense scale and ambition: A jumpgate that if built will allow contact between our species and an ancient and powerful alien civilization. Terrorists, labor revolts, and political squabbles threaten to disrupt the effort. The PCs are hired by the people in charge of the project to put down the first two threats, and to act as pawns in the third.
