Shadows in the Void
Resource Production Corporation
Resource Production Corporation is the first (and largest) of the resource acquisition companies. Spread throughout the universe, RPC is a steady supplier of raw materials to just about every cluster of living beings. RPC has a fleet of ships mining everything from debris fields to uninhabitable planets for the resources that an ever-expanding universe needs.
Due to its indispensable position, RPC can more or less enforce its own rules in open space. After all, the Coalition of Planetary Governments is either not powerful enough or not interested in controlling what’s beyond their own atmospheres.
