    Worlds Away: Convergence Trailer

    A political icon, made famous after tragedy struck his family…
    A renowned scientist whose invention made humanity a truly interstellar species…
    A practitioner of Indexing from the mysterious Saito Institute…
    A special operative and veteran of humanity’s only war in space…
    Tonight is the night that the crew of the Minerva Project will finally be announced to the world.
    Two and a half centuries into our future, humanity has just survived its first interstellar civil war. On one side is Earth and its unified Republic, founded on the principles of solidarity and progress. On the other is Aventine, humanity’s first planetary colony and part of the nearby galactic region known as the Verge—home of all known planets beyond Earth that support human life.
    In the aftermath of the war, every planet in the Verge faces a choice: to either rejoin the Republic and Earth’s vision for a united humanity, or to claim independence and chart their own path forward.
    As the vote in the Verge approaches, Earth’s new president has announced the Minerva Project, a mission to support our former colonies and prove to them the value of unity. But as tensions rise throughout our corner of the galaxy, the mission seen by most as a political ploy is overtaken by a threat to humanity’s future among the stars.
    Worlds Away is a brand new actual-play storytelling podcast, and our first season, Convergence, is available now.

    Convergence: Setup Episode

    Welcome to Worlds Away, an actual-play storytelling podcast! We’re a group of close friends creating fun, dramatic, and heartfelt adventures through games, and we can’t wait to share our first season with you: a mid-future, space-bound science fiction series that we’re calling Convergence.
    If you want to jump straight into the story, you can skip ahead to “Convergence 01: The Minerva Project,” which is available on our feed right now. But in this Setup Episode, we talk about what Worlds Away is, describe the game we’ll be playing this season (Impulse Drive by Adrian Thoen), and introduce you to the world and characters of Convergence.
