These Rumors exist on planets, and will have impacts on any Zones that exist on those planets.

Planetary Rumors - All Eras[edit | edit source]

Ion Storm[edit | edit source]

  • Entering orbit within this system may cause significant damage to the ship and crew.
  • While Spying, Blockading or Patrolling, our ship and crew are more likely to be exposed to dangerous radiation.
  • As if drawn by the dangerous radiation, xeno are more likely to interrupt landing procedures within this system.
  • Other ships are more likely to be damaged or stranded by the storm, and the chance of distress signals and wrecks is higher while Blockading or Patrolling.
  • Contacts resident in this system may lose Influence.
  • Specialists among my crew can learn Talents to protect our ship against the worst ravages of radiation and ion storms.

Trade Blockade[edit | edit source]

  • With the system on lock-down, we can only land by attempting to run the blockade and reach the surface.
  • With a blockade comes a swarm of smugglers hoping to strike it big. We are more likely to encounter smugglers while Spying, Blockading or Patrolling.
  • Keeping guard over the system, local military vessels are also more likely to be encountered while Spying, Blockading or Patrolling.
  • The local authority rewards blockade runners with Reputation bonuses for trading, and the economy's hunger for resources it demands will be much higher.
  • As the system's gravs have limited options for communication, we are more likely to intercept Intel or credit-bearing messages from the system while Spying.
  • With their economy squeezed, Contacts resident in this system may lose Influence.

Meteor Storm[edit | edit source]

  • Entering orbit within this system may cause significant damage to the ship and crew.
  • While Spying, Blockading or Patrolling, our ship is at risk of taking hits from passing meteorites or space particles.
  • Other ships are more likely to be damaged or stranded by meteor strikes, and the chance of distress signals and wrecks is higher while Blockading or Patrolling.
  • Contacts resident in this system may lose Influence.
  • Specialists among my crew can learn Talents to protect our ship against the increased meteor threat.

Pirates[edit | edit source]

  • Any attempt to land on a planet within the system runs an additional risk of encountering pirates.
  • Emboldened by their band of privateers, pirates are more likely to be encountered while Blockading, Patrolling or Spying.
  • Due to the constant raiding, smugglers and merchants are likely to be spotted while Blockading, Patrolling or Spying.
  • The local Factions will be more thankful if we drive off pirates during Patrol and increase Reputation bonuses.
  • With their economic actions under constant threat, Contacts resident in this system may lose Influence.

Xeno Spores[edit | edit source]

  • Entering orbit within this system may cause significant damage to the ship and crew as the space spores are a constant threat.
  • The lurking spores make landing operations within this system significantly more dangerous and increase the chance of encountering a lurking xeno vessel.
  • Xeno ships are more likely to appear during Spying, Patrolling or Blockading.
  • The local Factions are more likely to grant Reputation bonuses for Patrolling.
  • As if awoken by their kind's activity in the void above, xeno are more likely to attack during Exploring.
  • Contacts resident in this system may lose Influence as the spores damage or interrupt all operations.

Quarantined[edit | edit source]

  • With the landing zones shuttered by ground forces, it is impossible to land here.
  • With all travel from the surface to the stars locked down, we are more likely to intercept Intel or credit-bearing messages from the system while Spying.
  • Keeping guard over the system, local military vessels are more likely to be encountered while Spying, Blockading or Patrolling.
  • With their operations hampered, Contacts resident in this system may lose Influence.
  • Quarantine's end may be hastened by specific System Patrol Cards.
