Civilization collapsed long ago in the wake of mutant warfare. Survivors toil beneath the bootheel of their privileged Synthetic overlords.

Yet you and your friends make a name for yourselves as sharpers, lowly space criminals contracting with gangs and mega-corporations alike. In this guide, you'll find everything you need to narrate compelling characters and thrilling adventures in a bleak, cynical universe where hunger guides your gunhand.
