Dear crewmembers, ship security, specialists and passengers,
SevCol is proud to present its third role-play event of 2017: SevCol 9: An Assembler Darkly. Just like last times we will be organizing a multi-day game! We will be playing both on Saturday and Sunday, with a pause for sleeping and breakfast in between.
The coming event will be held at the ‘Performance Factory’ in Enschede (Projectbureau). Please note that we absolutely require 25 paid registrations by October 15th , as well as at least 5 people to help on the Friday before the event with the preparations, for the event to proceed.
The Luna Crisis seems to be under control, for now. An interim government is slowly forming, with the promise of elections in the near future. With the Celestra now available for employment, several potential employers have presented themselves covertly. Amongst them, the Earth Intelligence Agency INTEL, and SevCol. Both groups express interest in gathering information on the Jovian Moons.
Two months after leaving Luna, the crew gathers on SevCol station to figure out their next move.
We, as gamemasters, have come to the conclusion that our existing Player’s Handbook is not very user-friendly. So, we decided to do turn it into a pdf and do a small overhaul, but we would LOVE some feedback from our players on it.
The main new points, other than the skills (on which we also welcome comments and feedback) are as follows:
– Financial changes: Prices are more realistic for individuals and will be tracked. Financial matters are far more streamlined.
– More gear: We made some additional rules for special gear, and defined categories for them.
– Damage and healing are simplified and written down more.
– Character advancement rules have been streamlined and balanced.
– Spelling! It’s terrible, and we really like if you pointed out any missing/misspelled/wrong words.
What you don’t have to point out:
– The formatting is terrible! Yes, we know. Blame GoogleDocs.

Among the chaos on the surface of Luna, the destruction of a vital facility has gone unnoticed until this morning. Sources talk of an altercation of unknown persons nearby the facility, followed by an explosion and a fireball rising from the burned out remains of the plant.
The destruction of the Luna CO2 scrubber facility has lead to a rising fear of suffocation among the Luna citizens. Rising carbon dioxide in the air was predicted to be fatal to 50% of the population within 78 hours.
Thankfully, upon learning of the impending tragedy, the Endeavour Computer Systems Megacorp has graciously volunteered to retool their Xenon Liquification Facility to remove excess CO2 from the air. Endeavour Scientists stress that this is not a permanent solution, but their hard work and sacrifice will make it possible for the people of Luna to breathe freely for another few weeks.
Endeavour PR reports that their effort are extremely costly, but to save the people of luna, no expense would be spared.
We of the SevCol News Network have recently published a message addressed to the citizens of Luna by the former Minister of Education, Micah Al-Sahaf.
Earlier today we broadcast a message we received from the SCSS Celestra which seemed to discredit the message and intentions of Micah Al-Sahaf.
For the sake of unbiased journalism we will publish the response of Micah Al-Sahaf to SCSS Celestra’s message fully.
Dear citizens of Luna,
Recently, this network has published a statement by an unnamed Martian priest.
He calls for cooperation and a peaceful solution, which I obviously agree with.
But, he goes on to suggest we should work together with outside influences like SevCol. The help that SevCol is currently sending is appreciated to help us through the current crisis, the material help that is. However, the forces that they have sent are merely adding to the chaos.
We, as Lunar citizens, should come together and overthrow the outside influences. This will allow us to form a new government. I certainly plan to lend my expertise to this new government, but I absolutely do not plan on ‘ruling with an iron fist’. Mostly, I plan on leading an interim government, until calm and peace has been restored. At that time, elections will be held.
The allegations that I would work with DeFans of Luna are simply absurd. I have joined their (open) group on SevBook, to keep an eye on their activity, as any decently competent politician would have done.
So to all Luna Citizens, I say this: continue with your resistance, keep yourself safe, and work for the Luna as we all know and love. And don’t give in to the fearmongering and chaos spread by the many forces trying to influence the path that Luna should follow.
We just picked up a broadcast send from the SCSS Celestra, warning against xenophobic parties active in the Luna colony, attempting to get people to join them by spreading propaganda.
