|Lead GM:||Mel Harper|
|Game System:||ha. what is this system of which you speak|
|Information for Players:||We do not provide character sheets ahead of time (let me repeat that: _we do not provide character sheets ahead of time_) but can work with requirements for e.g. large print on the day. The character sheet and background combined are not likely to total more than 3 sides of A4. Costuming is not required (clothes are, but costuming is not). Some of the characters in this game are non-human.
Most of what goes on is inter-character, inter-faction and indeed inter-species politicking; there's a battle (not a literal knock-down-drag-out battle) going on for control of the station and its trade routes both to the spaceports that remain on Earth, and those already in place in other locations. Also up for grabs: control of at least one of the major trading companies, and various "interesting" types of technology, either originated on Earth or by one of the non-Terran species also involved. There are some timed events within the game which will affect some or all characters.

Graham started writing and GMing games for Epic Experience after many years (decades?) of playing them, often as the infamous Herbert Rotwang.
Part of the Epic Experience. I would say "the one most usually found swearing at technology" but I think Graham's taken over that job this year...
