Crossfire short stories written by Drakon based on the storyline concept of SWAT_OP-R8R
The full Crossfire story is based on three story elements.
1. The Crossfire version chapters which can be found inside the mod directory. Those explain "what" did happen.
2. The Crossfire ingame story quests and rumours which explain "how" events did happen.
3. The Crossfire short stories which deal with the question for the "why" did something happen.
All three story elements are directly linked and are to be view as a whole.
First and foremost, let it be known to the reader that the Crossfire Introduction renders a logical interpretation of possible events bridging between Starlancer, Freelancer, and beyond. In the unofficial intro one may note a Nomad battleship destroying the solar system. This conflicts with Freelancer’s plot, however, in the if the Nomads possessed such a super-weapon it would have used them to destroy the Houses of Sirius without the use of clandestine infiltration… and certainly not held back in favor of limited, conventional warfare during their battles in the storyline. Changing that one detail, the unofficial intro has influenced Crossfire in ways only that are compatible with the official events of Freelancer. Entertain for a moment the possibility that the Coalition survived the initial attack, that they had the potential for interstellar colonization, and time enough to engage in at brief and bitter war before their defeat in Sol. With this mind, please read on and immerse yourself in the rich and colorful story that is the Crossfire plot.
