Welcome to the Obsidian Portal wiki for Gene D.’s “Vortex” and “Star Trek: Restoration” space opera campaigns!

In one future, humanity had begun to colonize the Sol system, but environmental degradation, population pressures, and internecine strife persisted. After open and official First Contact with extrasolar societies, the very survival of Terrans is threatened by the Zarkonian Imperium. As rag-tag refugee fleets wander the galaxy, they need new heroes to find safe havens

I’ve been developing and running the shared homebrew “Vortex” setting since 1982, using systems including homebrew rules, GURPS, D20, and FATE. The most recent role-players have used FATE 3e Starblazer Adventures and Bulldogs, Skype, and an online dice roller.

Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Sacagawea. Our ongoing mission is to test the boundaries of science, understand and protect life in its infinite diversity, and boldly restore the United Federation of Planets….

The latest Star Trek crew meets monthly online. The Boston-area groups have also played other games, including my “Vanished Lands” fantasy setting, steampunk, superheroes, and horror. See our Groups.io message boards for more information.
