'The Lost Future' Trailer

I love post-apocalyptic movies. This looks crazy, but I love Sean Bean. I don't know how I missed it on Syfy.

"A group of post-apocalyptic survivors, struggle to survive in a world where jungles and forests and primeval wetlands and deserts have obliterated civilization. They staunchly face genetically mutating beasts and mysterious diseases in an attempt to re-establish the human race as masters of Earth." From IMDB

FASA Star Trek Role-Playing Game Optional Rules: Land Claim Lottery


Land Claim Lottery
For every year of service after the academy a Starfleet character can enter the Land Claim Lottery. One roll per year of post-Academy Service after character creation in complete. (These are optional rules if GM's allow money in their campaigns.)

If the player rolls a 1-5 on a 1D100 the character wins land on a frontier planet.

If they win stop rolling. A character can only win once. If a character does not win the player can roll once per game year during play.

Players are encouraged create a backstory concerning the planets as well as the resources (climate type, minerals, etc.). The planets are considered to be recently colonized are at the edge of Federation space. Anything else should be up to the player and GM.

If the player wins roll 1D100 on the following chart:

1-10 – 100,000 square miles
11-20 – 90,000 square miles
21-30 – 80,000 square miles
31-40 – 70,000 square miles
41-50 – 60,000 square miles
51-60 – 50,000 square miles
61-70 – 40,000 square miles
71-80 – 30,000 square miles
81-90 – 20,000 square miles
91-100 – 10,000 square miles

 
Natural Resources

Natural resources on the land provide income. To receive income the character must sell the exploitation rights. If the character chooses not to do so he receives no income. If the character wishes to sell (some or all) the land the GM and the player should work together to arrive at a fair price.

Find the amount of land your character possesses on the chart below then roll 1D100.
