Rise of the lost Children is an add-on mod exclusively for multi-player which adds some unique features so far not achieved in the space combat simulation game Freelancer. The story behind this mod is matching very well the story in Freelancer, exploiting some facts already present in vanilla Freelancer but which were unfinished. The aim of this mod is to add enjoyable new features for both freelancer pilots and also for clans in multi-player. As freelancer you can participate in story wars, epic battles, competitions, make money and become famous.

I resumed at the end of last year the work on this project and I hope in couple months that I will release the 1.0 version of the mod.
