In the twenty-second century, the forces of law enforcement don't always get their man.

In most cities, for most crimes, clearance rates (the number of cases opened versus cases where charges are brought) are abysmal. Even murder is solved often only 60% of the time. Police forces, even at the state level or even for national agencies like the US's FBI, don't have enough resources to investigate every case. And more cases than anyone likes to admit go cold, to boot.

That's where a firm like Higher Ground Investigations steps in. Performing private investigations, freelance security, consulting with government agencies, and other sorts of security work both famous and not-so-famous, Eagle Investigations might just be able...to crack the case. To find the missing person. To protect against terrorist threats.

To save lives and protect lives. And make a buck too, while they're at it, because this sort of skill doesn't come cheap at all.


Set in Utah in the early twenty-second century, around 2117, Higher Ground Investigations is a free form science-fiction P.I. role-playing game.

Higher Ground Investigations does everything from private investigations to bounty hunting, to personal security and corporate security, VIP security, witness protection, search and rescue, surveillance, undercover work, cold case investigations, repossession, location of witnesses, victim's advocate work, locating witnesses, computer and Internet crimes, background checks, drug and narcotics investigations, self-defense training, weapons training, and anti-terrorism.

We have virtually every position available you could ask for, at the moment, in all areas of specialization. We even have positions open for a receptionist, an office manager, a victim's advocate, and other typically unsung and unheralded roles. The story takes place both on Earth and in space. It is inspired by William Shatner's "Tek-War" novels. The technology is based on the technology in those novels such as aircars, ground cars, laser weapons, etc.
