About the adventure

Keeping a starship flying is expensive business. The worst part is when you get double‐crossed by your clients before you have the chance to double‐cross them first. There are, of course, good times and bad times amidst the omnipresent dark between the stars. Recently, your team of mercenaries just received what you hope is a big score. Doctor Humina Ghabi of the free company, Industrial Algebra, has invited you for a special clandestine assignment. Murphy’s law “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” But you have prayed to the Icons for success. So what can go wrong now? TAGS: Space Opera, Investigation, Skulduggery, Action
