|A rogue Geth, a Quarian, and a Turian walk into a bar...|
I've talked about Rogue Space quite a bit in the past, but to reiterate here; it's a great game. It's put out by a gamer just like us, is dirt cheap, and let's you hit the table fast and furious without a lot of being bogged down by the rules. Check it out here. I would also be remiss if I did not mention the excellent, fan-assisted source material that Señor Swenson has been cranking out for Rogue Space found here.
Anyway, this was a short story arc of a campaign, just something to get the players into some sci-fi dice rolling. I think it lasted three nights all told? Rumor has it those knuckleheads over at Minions of the Monster Master have some actual play episodes of the game. It concluded on an open-ended note, so there's definitely room in the future for more adventures of the crew. Below are some eye-candy shots for the players to put a visual with some of the things they encountered last night.
Above we have the Normandy, which was blown up in our game mind you, and in the distance is the massive Citadel. The Citadel was found tech left over by an ancient alien race. It is seat to the galactic council, the four races that make up said council being the four races that stumbled upon it. It's not just a space station, it's huge, small moon-sized huge.
This is a mass relay, also left behind by the same ancient aliens who built the Citadel, presumably. These mass relays are all over the galaxy and make FTL travel between systems possible. Without these, galactic expansion would not be nonexistent.

We set out what we planned on, a short little sci-fi RPG romp in a fun universe. There are no plans at this time to return, but anything is possible. If we do, there's a ship and plenty of source material ready to roll. Until next time, enjoy!
