Stories of a Broken Sun

Offseason 1 - Asteroid Blues, Part 1

March 10, 2019

Welcome to our second and final playtest of the first offseason. This time, we're playing Scum and Villainy by Stras Acimovic and John Leboeuf-Little, available from Evil Hat Games. Unlike The Sprawl, this playtest is officially CANON! Come explore another pocket of humanity clinging to survival in the shadow of the Emergency and the Mistake. 

In the Hygieian Cluster, folks struggle beneath the iron grip of the Logistocracy and dream of the days when humanity lived under a sky, protected by an atmosphere. Xavier Quagg, Nova Valkyrie, and Gill McGill are a trio of bounty hunters living from mark to mark and eking out a meager existence in the dark spaces between the floating settlements of the Hygieian Logistocracy. 

On their most recent job, they have been tasked with tracking down a hitman who did not eliminate the target... and recovering the mysterious mark that made this hitman break their contract. 

Character creation and worldbuilding end at 47:10, when the gameplay begins!
