SESSION on the 24th, and October 8th.


Premise

In 1998 the Galatea research satellite explodes. Despite some early claims of the entry of radioactive material into the jetstream the WHO/WSA publishes studies indicating that the material, despite some areas of increased radioactivity to dangerous levels, have had a negligible effect. In June of the year the Aeon Society, a philanthropic organization dating from the League of Nations, funds the construction of a number of research institutes to both study the radioactivity and as part of its on-going mission to improve the human "condition". As the years roll by in the course of human history is struck and for better or worse turned to a new path. In 2007, the man who would be the first Nova Erupts in the streets of New York, a miracle widely attributed to unknown latent effects of the Galatea explosion. And seemingly not too soon Project Utopia arose with its backers in the U.N. and amoung national governments to harness Nova Talent for the "betterment and future of mankind". Perhaps had Team Tomorrow existed when a freak series of earthquakes and a volcanic eruption destroyed the town of San Carlos the town and people might have been saved... And so after the first generation, three years later, a new group of Nova's erupt...

Due to certain disputes and disagreements with Project Utopia (mixed in with paranoia) The Organization has recruited a nova team based in Eastern Canada.

Locations

Ranqstan
A small troubled state on the Indian ocean whose government, in the wake of a supposedly Democratic government being installed by popular sentiment following the collapse of its previous, and corrupt, strongman regime of General Amriah, received a great deal of international support as part of the War on Terror. Questions of why much of the populace is in revolt has not been dealt with... In mid 2009 Coalition troops fought "the battle of Tahati" in chaotic conditions and was forced to retreat with some heavy losses. With the death of the "Lion of Ranqstan" it was hoped that the insurgency would have been broken.
Toronto
Currently dealing with the problem of large-scale Mite trafficking into the city, and Canada, and its related symptoms as its primary issue during the Nova Age.
Lake Hills Atomic Quantum Power Plant
The next-generation in power generation. Currently hoped to reduce reliance on fossil and nuclear fuels. Recently suffered quite a incident. . .
Mexico City
As run-down and lawless as ever; slowly improving due to the efforts of Project Utopia and the Mexican Government. VAG has a facility in the surrounding countryside and a 'office' in-town with connections to the more shady parts of the populace.
