In this game, we take on the roles of our enemies in The Prometheus Syndicate. Our goal is to capture and secure a specially-designed farcaster located in the long-abandoned Zrbny mining facility in the asteroid belt. During The Fall, Zrbny shut down for eight days, only to mysteriously come back online with no mention of the interruption of service. Since then, no one has set foot on the asteroid where it is located, and Ash, the station’s public relations AGI, warns off any ships that approach too closely. Those who fail to heed the warning quickly learn just how heavily armed the facility’s defense system is. Moreover, the station has run completely on automation for the past ten years, a fact that has led the wary locals to refer to the place as Zombieland. Can a scum machinist, a demolitions expert and a bitter AGI construct infiltrate Zombieland and wrest control from Ash, or will they join the ranks of the foolhardy adventure seekers who thought they could beat the odds? Listen to find out!
This week, we were play-testing a new rules light version of Eclipse Phase that Alex created based on Cthulhu Dark. If you, too, would like to run your own games of Delta Fork, you can find the rules online here. If you play, please share your feedback with us, either by emailing us or over on the Delta Fork thread on the Eclipse Phase forums.
