The planet of Paradise, the once gleaming gem in the Outer Rim now lies in ruins.
For reasons unknown, the planet surface is now a desolate, barren and deadly wasted.
For the inhabitants life is tough. While some take shelter in the walled compounds of
community townships, other form roaming tribes of bandits, preying on the defenceless.
During the 'Fall Of Paradise' a rare and valuable resource was discovered. Spice Crystals.
While 'Spice' is found in all corners of the known galaxy, a concentrated form as those
found on paradise is extremely rare. This has attracted the universe's most unwanted.
The Mercs, The Convicts, The Wanted...and the undesirables. These ruthless individuals form gangs known as 'Spice Hunters' who harvest the Spice Crystals and sell onto the highest bidder. The Mega Corporations of 'The Inner Core' eye this resource with envy...and everyone on Paradise knows it will not be long before they make a move and secure the planet for themselves.
