LARC takes you on a spaceship to adventure, gives you an entire tale, and returns you to Earth in the span of ten minutes. Got more time? Great, there are plenty of LARC adventures to explore!

In a not so distant future, mankind discovers the lost city of Atlantis, buried in the depths of the ocean. Not only was Atlantis the home of an advanced culture, it was a colonial spacehip that brought aliens to Earth in humanity’s prehistory.

After years of study and reverse engineering; private citizens, corporations, and universities pooled their resources and formed LARC, the League of Atlantis Reborn Colonies.

Now a fleet of LARC Colonial spaceships blasts into the depths of space in search for intelligence, adventure, and new worlds to colonize. A half million citizens set off on each craft, ready to bring human civilization into the unknown.
