"The imaginary world has always been the most fun place for me to be." (Clare Forlani)

Imaginary Consequences, November 19–22, 2015, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset

Small World

It's a Small World...

Two million five hundred thousand tonnes of gently spinning rock and ice... all alone in the night. Sounds a lot... but really it's not – a freezing rock less than two hundred meters in its longest dimension, it's barely big enough to snug alongside to mask your mass profile from the Feds.

An old League listening post reworked into a smuggler's den, it's a pretty spartan bolt-hole – and it's not even your bolt-hole. But word is that 'Mack the Spanner' went out last month in a blaze of glory... or at least a rapidly expanding ball of gas and wreckage. So he's not about to argue ownership. So with your air slowly leaking out of a busted airlock, a hold full of contraband, and a Federation cruiser on your tail you needed somewhere to run to. Somewhere with air, and fuel – and this was about the best option any of you could think of.

But you're not the only ones interested in Mack's old rock, a crew containing a ghost from your past is also there – someone with unfinished business. An incredible coincidence, but then, as the saying goes... it's a small world.

Setting: Tony and AJ have kindly allowed me to play in their Firefly inspired universe. For costuming purposes think 'Space Cowboy'. For more on the setting see: https://sites.google.com/site/linfarnrun/home/background

Information for Players:Small World uses vignette based workshops to allow players to develop their own characters. Initially inspired by the 'Picking up the pieces' games, and 'The Outsiders', which both use techniques from Nordic freeform, it also uses event driven plots, and pre-planned background secrets, as found in more traditional freeforms.

Because of the nature of the game, subjects might arise which some players may find sensitive or uncomfortable. We will ask in advance for players to submit such subjects to us, so we can provide an (anonymized) list of material to avoid in the game.

Male Players:Min: 4 / Max: 4

Jones, Martin

A not-so-closet gamer ever since your early youth, you discovered 'freeforms' about a decade ago. You have since been involved in writing Best of the Wurst, Veterans Day, Lists of Avalon, The Deliverance, Small World and Burning Orchid.

Having successfully infiltrated a satellite construction facility your plans for subverting the orbital mind control device and using it to 'liberate' the world are one step closer.

For some reason currently unclear to you, you have recently taken to referring to yourself in the 2nd person.
