ZONA ALFA: Yuri’s Crew

After a spate of recent Zone tours turning sour, Yuri Bonyev is shifting away from working as a freelance guide and moving into what is euphemistically known “retrieval work”; searching the Exclusion Zone for valuable salvage and artifacts.

Cinder King: The Rochant Monastery

“The monastery. It’s on the cliff here. At the bend in the river outside Plainsworth.” General Montsigaard sat up and pointed to a spot on the map an inch above your current marked position. The Legion’s commander was pale, haggard. The stump of his left leg was swathed in bandages, missing below the knee. A […]

The Cinder King is coming

I’ll certainly reference this for inspiration for more Zona Alfa […]

TST Expansion: Trash Run

Part One of a HARDWIRED mini-campaign. Omar Patek frowned. There was a spread of images on McNevin’s display: body parts in a plastic tub. The organic bits were separated with a butcher’s precision, the cybernetic sockets were empty, smeared with gristle and fluids. “They kibbled him, jacked his ‘ware, and sent him back via pedicab […]
