Plutonian Shards: Touch the Void


You’re a hardscrabble crew skirting the law in the frigid fragments of a shattered dwarf planet. Somehow, the Last Hope of the Solar System is aboard your ship.

Can you keep your ship and crew together long enough to get out of debt—and, maybe, save the Solar System?

Plutonian Shards (previous working title Plutonian Shore) is an in-development roleplaying game of swashbuckling sci-fi adventure at the icebound edge of the solar system. It is Powered by the Apocalypse, and draws inspiration from media like The Mandalorian and Firefly.

In this playtest, we’ll explore the game’s default setting of the shards of Pluto and over the course of four sessions see how our crew make a name for themselves among factions like the Tetrachy of Merchant Princes, the Starbreaker Cult, the Styx Syndicate, and the Driftsteel Coalition.
