  • Description

    Flotsam: Adrift Amongst the Stars  is a roleplaying game about outcasts, renegades and misfits living in the belly of a space station, in the shadow of a more prosperous society. You play through their everyday lives, interpersonal relationships and small-scale drama in the Below, a dangerous world where poverty, social strife and gang conflict sit side-by-side with alien technology and supernatural weirdness.

    Imagine the belters of  The Expanse  watching as Earth and Mars shape their lives, the civilians in  Battlestar Galactica  living with the decisions made by the military and the folk of Downbelow in  Babylon 5, abandoned to destitution and squalor by those who built the station. This game is about characters like that.

    The game is GMless and diceless, with rules that point your characters at each other and bring their relationships into sharp focus. They help you create a rich setting, flawed characters, and charged relationships which develop over time. You'll watch your characters evolve and change before your eyes. It's really cool.

    Flotsam  uses PBTA-like playbooks and has a small number of basic moves; it's a GMless game thatut applies a principles + moves framework to doing GM-stuff. It uses tokens rather than dice (spend a token to power your moves and get good stuff, expose yourself to danger to gain a token). If you've played  Dream Askew, it's a lot like that.
