Random Starting Locations[edit]


  • Humble Merchant starts with both a Mercury TS and a Discoverer M5.
  • Aldran Adventurer starts with Terran plot completed, so you cannot get its rewards.
  • Goner Witness' Ranger cannot equip any weapons or missiles.
  • Boring Boron starts in hostile territory.
  • Suicidal Squid uses *Dead is Dead* mode, meaning you cannot reload after dying. It requires a Steam connection.
  • Custom Game starts with **all plots disabled**. It does not allow you any actual custom choices either.
