Welcome to Gateway, the access point for the newly charted Delta Varde system. A massive influx of people fills the station, wanting to learn, explore and exploit the massive gas giants and icy moons that circle its dual suns. It’s a time of opportunity and danger. Three-way negotiations are about to begin between the current administrators of the station, a corporate security force called the Starkeepers who hope to take over station governance – and the Miners, who are striking to protest injuries and terrible working conditions. These negotiations will decide the future of the station for decades to come.

Imagine the Belters of The Expanse watching as Earth and Mars shape their lives; the civilians in Battlestar Galactica living with the decisions made by the military; and the folk of Downbelow in Babylon 5, abandoned to destitution and squalor by those who built the station. Flotsam: Adrift Among the Stars is about characters like that.

Flotsam is Powered by the Apocalyse but GM-less and diceless. We’ll be using the Gateway playset, created by Emily Care Boss. You can see the characters here and the situations here.
