About the adventure

For too long the Hegemony has held the people of the Procyon sector in a stranglehold. The local noble house leverages their will to restrict information, travel, and liberty. Someone really ought to take them down a peg. That's where you come in. Spark of Rebellion is a Scum & Villainy one-shot following a small crew of renegades, members of a rebellious movement against the all-powerful Hegemony. Strike at the heart of corruption and build a better world for yourself and your friends. Scum & Villainy is a space-opera game heavily inspired by Star Wars, Mass Effect, and other similar scifi.
