The Inter Solar System Police

With their cities full of criminals, woefully underfunded jails, skyrocketing crime, and mass-murders happening in increasing numbers, it's a wonder that the Cops survive at all. In the old days of the 20th, the Police would occasionally get shot at, but these days they're lucky if a slug is the only thing they take. Often the last line of defense between the roving Syndicate thugs and the helpless popultion of the inner cities, the Cops are the overworked and underpaid guardians of hope.

It's no wonder that most Cops have gone bad: taking bribes, running protection rackets, outright murder. The few that resist the urge are often hated both within the walls of the Precinct as well as on the Street. Even so, the people know a good cop when they see one--thay take care of those that they feel they can trust. Often overlooked by the media and kicked by the local goverment, it takes a rare breed to wear the badge.

Authority: The ability to intimidate or control others based on the Cop's position as a person of the Law. The skill represents the character's ability to call upon the Police and Government for backup whenever the character feels the need to. The higher the skill, the more influence they have to get what forces they need. This skill is applied to the character's COOL stat.


"Your partner sure is unlucky. This case is especially bad. It would be better to not get yourselves involved in this one. I'm telling you this for your own sake, and if you get too involved in this, I'm gonna get in trouble too. But you always have been a guy that likes to get into trouble. All right, this is only a rumor, but..."

"Humans were meant to work and sweat for their money. Those that try to get rich quick or live at the expense of others all get divine retribution somewhere along the way. That is the lesson."
