The drama of Fading Suns is not really a story about spaceships, aliens, or strange technology. At it’s heart, it is a tale of people. Strange people, loving people, hateful people, pious people, alien people. Though the Characters tab holds some information, this page is to remind players and storyteller both of those people that have touched the story, and why.
