Ashen Stars launch at Concrete Cow
Ashen Stars UK launch!
The details of exactly what’s happening are unclear at the moment, but I’m sure things will be fine on the day. I know that at least one game of Ashen Stars will be run by Neil Ford. I don’t know if any other games are yet organised. If you want to run a game of Ashen Stars, please let either me or Mike (at Leisure Games) know.
And if you want to run a game of something else, let me know.
For those of you who don’t know what Ashen Stars is, here’s the blurb:
Ashen Stars is the newest full-length, stand-alone GUMSHOE product from RPG legend, Robin D. Laws.
They call you lasers. Sometimes you’re called scrubbers, regulators, or shinestars. To the lawless denizens of the Bleed, whether they be pirates, gangsters or tyrants, you’re known in less flattering terms. According to official Combine terminology, the members of your hard-bitten starship crew are known as Licensed Autonomous Zone Effectuators. You’re the seasoned freelancers local leaders call when a situation proves too tough, too baffling, or simply too weird to handle on their own. In the abandoned fringe of inhabited planets known as the Bleed, you’re as close to a higher authority as they come.
In this gritty space opera game, the PCs are Lasers, freelance troubleshooters and law enforcers operating in a remote sector called the Bleed. They’re needed in the wake of a massive retreat by the Combine, the utopian empire that colonized it. Amid the ashes of a devastating war, the lasers solve mysteries, fix thorny problems, and explore strange corners of space—all on a contract basis. They balance the immediate rewards of a quick buck against their need to maintain their reputation, so that they can continue to quickly secure lucrative contracts and pay the upkeep on their ship and their cyber- and viroware enhancements.
