“Get your ass to Mars, Marines!! Vacation is over!
The Martians are revolting, and it’s up to us to restore harmony for our ever-loving corporate masters. Once again, we have the honour of being the nearest Colonial Marine Unit within the distance of this flare-up of anti-corporate feeling, so pick your kit up and get your head in the game!
There will be a full briefing when we reach UN Base in Martian Orbit. But now all you need to know that some weird-ass cult who claim to follow the ancient Egyptian God of Deserts and Evil, Set, have taken up arms and blockaded themselves in the poor district. Thereby transferring themselves off the protected religious minorities list and onto the list of bonafide terrorist organisations! Remember you will be acting within the Colonial Act of 2105. So that means no civilian casualties or damage to corporate-owned property!
Right get down to the cryo-pods where Private Smith will tuck you in!”

Ascendancy is a Sci-fi Horror adventure. It will be using a hacked version of the Liminal RPG system, a simple 2d6 vs target number system. Inspiration for the setting comes from Ancient Egyptian Mythology and 80s action sci-fi/horror films.
