A game about the pilots of powerful machines in a war that dominates every facet of life. They are trying to do their time and part, and get out physically and mentally intact. The organizations that perpetuate the War through all of known space are too incomprehensibly huge to take down. There is no “winning” the War, there is only surviving it.

These are their stories.

 

Mission Report 10: Saving The Rubble Runts

Jul 24, 2019

This Mission Report comes from the Cenotaph stream campaign.

BRIEFING:Layla Quince wants your help reuniting the scattered Rubble Runts. She’s been in contact with one of her lieutenants who has hidden in Kingstown (a poor neighbourhood in Journey City). The lieutenant has gotten word out to the remaining Runts that Layla is coming to get them, and has gathered them all at the safe house. Problem is that he doesn't have secure comms and if he says where he is, the Burden will know as well. He's already said he's in Kingstown, so the clock is ticking.

EMPLOYER: The Rubble Runts (tier 1S; Independent)

TARGET: The Burden (tier 2S; independent)

OBJECTIVE: Get the RR out of Kingstown. 

ROE: no harming/threatening civilians. No posing as/attacking medical units. 

COMPLICATION: The March of Saints (tier 5S; Theocracy) will show up to provide “protection” to the locals if things get loud because they want them for labour. The locals might come down on either side of the conflict. It’s hard to tell the difference between The Burden and locals. The Burden will target Rubble Runts. The RR don't have a vehicle large enough to move everyone. 

CHARACTERS:

  • Joe Jerry Berry, Rubble Runts lieutenant. He/him, late teens, wears half frame glasses, dark skin, wide features, short kinky hair, lean build, wears jeans and an urban camo t-shirt.
  • Hannah Copeland, Burden cell leader. Lithe build, late 30s, pale brown skin, curly purple hair. Knew one of the Pilots when they were a kid. She/her. 
  • Sibling Sundown, squad leader of the March of Saints, follower of St Ethalia of A Productive Day. Large build, mid 40s, white skin, grey hair in a bun, wears a priest’s vestments. They/Them

CHALLENGES:

  • March of Saints may show up in force.
  • Burden hidden amongst locals.
  • The Burden will target Rubble Runts.
  • A vehicle or hidden path is needed to move the RR. 
  • Have Hannah challenge the Pilot she knows about who the RR are (organized crime according to her) and what The Burden fight for (freedom from Offworlder oppression).
