Tartarus

An Ashen Stars scenario
by Robin D. Laws
Driven crazy by the muddled motivations and blatant idiot plotting of a certain eagerly-awaited SF movie franchise reboot?  Exorcise your frustrations by giving your players the chance to do it right. Under contract to the Shrawley-Gosha corporation, hard-bitten interstellar operatives investigate the demise of a survey mission to a devastatingly hostile alien world. Didn’t they know enough not to touch the gooey stuff?  Why did they take off their helmets? Can your PCs learn from their mistakes—or are they doomed to repeat them?

    Sounds like it will be a great game to run. Haven’t been disappointed yet by Robin D. Laws

    This looks great! I’m running a similar Ashen Stars event at GenCon this year, The Omega Conspiracy: “Retrieve a deadly exovirus that wiped out a remote research outpost in the Kraken Outzone. Straightforward contract, right? Not if agents of an apocalyptic Nufaith have anything to say about it…” Great minds think alike!

        The event’s full, but if there’s interest, I’d be happy to run a repeat of the event during the con!

    I’m tempted to get Ashen Stars just to play this

    Why not just go ahead and call it Epimetheus?
