This Tour of Duty Sponsored by


Resources Development Administration

With millions of shareholders, Resources Development Administration (RDA) is the oldest and largest of the quasi-governmental administrative entities (QGAEs). But its origins are far more modest.

The entity that would become RDA was little more than a Silicon Valley garage startup in the early 21st century, when its two founders borrowed money from family members to begin the company.

Within a few decades, the company had the stature to propose the construction of a world-spanning rapid transit system that would allow entire population groups to conveniently commute hundreds or even thousands of miles to perform work where it was needed, without impinging on the cultural values of host populations.

This led to the current global network of maglev trains that require the superconductor unobtanium for their continued operation.

The company's early expeditions to Pandora were seen as a colossal risk; the construction of the first interstellar vehicle alone put an enormous strain on capital resources. But with exclusive mining rights to unobtanium (which, at time of publication is valued at $20 million per kilo), and potential profits from countervirals, biofuels, and cosmetics, the enormous capital investment has paid off.

Company Info: The largest single non-governmental organization in the human universe
Function: Massive corporation involved in interests ranging from mining, transportation, medicines, weapons and communications.

Notes: More powerful than most Earth governments The Resources Development Administration (RDA) has monopoly rights to all products shipped, derived or developed from Pandora and any other off-Earth location.

These rights were granted to RDA in perpetuity by the Interplanetary Commerce Administration (ICA), with the stipulation that they abide by a treaty that prohibits weapons of mass destruction and limits military power in space.

Click the arrow to begin your first assignment



Colonel Miles Quaritch, your mission commander

Good morning sunshine, I was wondering when you were going to report! No time for breakfast Gyrene, hand over your plate of bacon and eggs . . . . now.

I am Colonel Miles Quaritch, your mission commander for your current tour of duty. For your orientation, I am assigning you to weapons, craft, and operations detail.

So it's real simple, you complete your missions to my satisfaction and I will see to it that you get your eggs back . . . your real eggs.

Your first assignment, I am starting you out on operations detail. A well informed marine must know their way around the facilites.

This first phase of your mission is to learn the military and production side of the compound only. I'm not going to bother taking you to the Science Lab, Link Room or any other of those science pukes sandboxes, I'll let one of Augustine's meat puppets give you that tour.



Hop in hauler

For you fresh recruits

Taking orders from a Lifer not your thing? Then sneak in the back door by hopping in that hauler above where you can instantly see the complete inventory of weapons, craft, and operations without having to march to the Colonel's cadence.
