How It Begins

The game begins with an unreferenced quotation about inevitability.

You are Commander Tanur, a combat pilot with twenty years experience, sent to this abandoned planet, an old massacre site, to babysit a Domin Ambassador. No one expected this driving rain to appear so suddenly, and you shoved the ambassador into his shuttle which takes off prematurely, sending a hail of stones against the hull of your fighter, an ALT/EF-32. Unfortunately, when you turn on the engine switch, nothing happens.

You are carrying a pouch containing your orders. You are wearing your uniform, your utility belt and your shoes. Attached to your utility belt you see a water bottle and your laser pistol.
