The Mandate
Scourge of The Mandate
November 7, 2013 - MandateGame

Hi guys,

We have now released our third interactive tool, called Scourge of The Mandate[www.mandategame.com]

Here is an excerpts on what this text adventure is all about:

Even in these days of rebellion and civil war, when worlds turn on each other and fleets clash in deep space, there are a few names as universally abhorred as that of Jameson Howth, one of the infamous Scourges of the Mandate. The atrocities and crimes committed by this villain have ensured him a place in some infernal pantheon of legendary pirates. This Scourge is still believed to be at large in Fringe space, though his infamous ship, the Deathless, has not been seen in years.
How did Howth become such a notorious villain? What vile and unforgivable crimes did he commit? In this simulation, you will take on the role of Jameson Howth and determine the path he walks, the decisions he makes. Will you bring him to an untimely but well-deserved end, or emulate his terrible example and become the most infamous pirate in the galaxy? Or are you so treacherous and depraved that you can eclipse even Jameson Howth as a Scourge of the Mandate?
