Big Things Have Small Beginnings is a neo-noir scifi RPG, based on the works of Ridley Scott (think: the brilliant mind behind the films Alien, Blade Runner, and Prometheus). We're set in the year 2093, thirty years before Ripley's ship took off. Weyland Industries, the face of new technology and advanced space travel, funded Project Prometheus. They set out to discovered the origins of mankind...and found so much more. Mankind is now reeling with the new discovery. Meanwhile, infections are spreading in other colonies, the military outpost is training in the event of an alien attack, and rescue ships have been sent out to find Prometheus. The space race is over; now, it's a race for survival.

We found what we were looking for... though I'm not entirely sure it was to our benefit. The Engineers have shown hostility that I was not expecting; they created us, why would they wish to destroy us? Doctor Holloway became infected by... something... while on the mission. He required quarantine and severe decontamination, and his body is still recovering. As am I. I have attempted to study the... thing... that was extracted from my uterus, and I am conducting studies on the biological implications of the Infection being spread through sexual intercourse. Even further implications in the notion of defeating infertility.
The rest of the crew is in a state of shock, piecing back together the bits of the ship that were left, repairing, and desperately attempting to... cope. Our mission here is not yet finished. We have yet to discover why the Engineers created us in the first place. Though their emotions and motivations seem primitive, their technology far outweighs our own. I am met with more questions than answers.
Charlie-- I'll be there in a moment. I--
Perhaps we will never know the truth. But I vow to continue on, until there is no breath left in my body. Further gratitude goes to Weyland Industries, for funding this mission.
