Penumbra: A Trophy Dark Incursion
A downloadable one-shot adventure
A planet poisoned by its people’s lifeline. The people’s need for just a few more drops of that poison. A remote, dangerous chance to discover a new reserve. As a member of a team of disposable drillers left alone on an asteroid to take that chance, the hope for your home colony that you lost long ago is now dwindling what little hope you reserved for yourself. If you can just find and secure this last energy source, it may let them live a few decades longer, but more importantly, you could earn enough money to leave this place far behind before you have to watch it destroy itself…
Penumbra is a contemplative one-shot adventure for Jesse Ross’s Trophy Dark in which the players, a rag-tag group of burnt-out Sap drillers forced into the role of last-minute heroes, will struggle to cross a desolate asteroid and add a few final grains of sand to their colony planet's proverbial hourglass. A bleak and lonely exploration of whether to fight the end, this book contains all of the rules you need to play, including all-new character creation options.
The book is 32 pages long. It includes:
- 4 new occupations and 6 new backgrounds, drives, and rituals for character creation
- 15 moments
- 10 conditions
With purchase, you get the following fully bookmarked PDFs:
