The fellow nursing the mug of Roc ale in the corner of the cantina doesn't have to tell you he's an FTL captain. The laser burns on his jacket, the monkey wrench in his belt, and the broad grin creasing his craggy, careworn face give him away.
Sit down opposite him and you invite a torrent of torrid tales.
See this scar? I got that when I targeted my own bridge with an incendiary missile. Had some Mantis boarders running amok it was the only way to take them down.
Buy me a pint and I'll tell you about the time my ship, the Belle Guano, tangled with a pirate cutter twice its size near the Slug homeworld. Trust me, you don't know fear until you've had to shut down your own shields, life-support system, and sensors in order to summon the power necessary to launch an anti-ship drone.
Every one of FTL's evening-sized odysseys bulges at the bulkheads with dramatic dogfights, tough trading decisions and bittersweet twists of fate.
