Project Diaspora is a space trade MMORPG.
Civilization as we know it has ended. You are a clone. The central banks of the known universe have funded your creation and you have been credited with what you need to lift off. If you are an experiment, we do not know, all we do know is that this universe is not completely inhabited with your kind and you have been given what you need to start your exploration.
In this confusion we can tell you that many others like yourself have been created and have begun trying to accumulate full control over the universe. While many simply trade peacefully, and go about their daily lives, some seek to destroy and pirate for sheer enjoyment. Out there you will find many guilds to suit your needs. There is a balance of good and evil and neither have proved to rightfully keep full control.
