Flotsam: Adrift Amongst the Stars


Flotsam: Adrift Amongst the Stars is a roleplaying game about outcasts, renegades and misfits living in the belly of a space station, in the shadow of a more prosperous society. You play through their everyday lives, interpersonal relationships and small-scale drama in the Below, a dangerous world where poverty, social strife and gang conflict sit side-by-side with alien technology and supernatural weirdness.

Imagine the Belters of the Expanse watching as Earth and Mars shape their lives, the civilians in Battlestar Galactica living with the decisions made by the military and the folk of Downbelow in Babylon 5, abandoned to destitution and squalor by those who built the station. This game is about characters like that.

The game is GMless and diceless, with rules that point your characters at each other and bring their relationships into sharp focus. They help you create a rich setting, flawed characters, and charged relationships which develop over time. You’ll watch your characters evolve and change before your eyes. It’s really cool.

Your Primary character might be:

– The Thunder, a gang leader or law enforcer
– The Spider, a trader, spymaster or criminal
– The Voice, a cultist, community leader or demagogue
– The Cast-Off, a drifter and freelancer
– The Sybyl, a prophetess with uncanny powers
– The Hybrid, a blend of human and something else (AI, alien, god)

You could push forward a Situation like:

– The Community’s social strife and internal divisions
– The relentless effects of Poverty
– The Gangs who run things down here
– The Above, a more prosperous and powerful society
– The Spirits who inhabit this place
– The people and things that come and go from Outside the station
