It has been 2000 years since the Galactic Empire fell. The planet Meka, an old border world colonized on the edge of controlled space, has had no outside contact since the collapse, and tumbled into Dark Ages. This is: AFTER EMPIRE.

Just a brief guide on the technologies available on Meka:

Personal kinetic barriers, salvaged from old Galactic Empire technology, have revolutionized combat. An apparently unarmored target can be protected from gas-operated slug-thrower weaponry quite effectively, while being able to shoot out. This has pushed combat to polar extremes. One either needs to use very high caliber weaponry, or extremely explosive plasma weapons, to overload or destroy the shields. Or, the use of a simple non-energy sword can allow an attacker to slip past the shield without activating it. This has led to a new rise in melee combat, on and off the battlefield.

Plasma guns are brutally powerful: the can melt through heavy armor plating, shields, and people with ease. The ionized-plasma channel delivery system also results in near instantaneous delivery of the plasma bolt, so the shooter does not have to lead the target.
Drawbacks are their bulkiness, in-concealablilty, and large amounts of noise and light emitted upon firing. However, compared to their laser counterparts, they are much more durable and parts are easier to find.

The Assassin's dream weapon: medium range, compact, invisible, bypasses shields, and is silent, the laser is an extremely rare and expensive find. The laser operates in wavelengths above human sight, meaning only someone with complicated scanning equipment could detect one. The high amount of energy required limits the range to approximately 25 meters. Some lower-power assassin lasers are capable of stopping a targets heart.
Some draw backs are their fragile-ness, low range, low ammunition, and tell-tale sunburst when fired (only visible if looking directly at firer.)

There is a stange blend of vehicles on Meka. The most common and reliable is the horse, and simple combustion engine cars. Large steamships, Dirigibles, and tanks can also be found, though far less common. Some forms of helicopter have also been replicated for extremely limited use from Galactic Empire designs.
Some relic vehicles from the Galactic Empire are still operational, such as gravity skills. They are an extreme rarity and are considered extremely valuable.
