Alright, here’s the plan.
We have a train full of big corporate executives and their latest project which is begging to be heisted. I know a lot of you have been raring to really take a shot at our dear corporate overlords and now’s the chance.
I’ve got an inside agent who’ll get us onto the train. We take out their guards, off a couple of the bastards who’ve made all of our lives a living hell, steal some dinosaurs, and get away scott free.
This time tomorrow we’ll be rolling in cash. Any problems show up and I’ll roll with it, just like always.
So, you in?

Things did not go according to plan. The crew has been trapped on a train with hungry dinosaurs, no leader, and precious few hours to figure out how to survive.
This game is set in a serious, cyberpunk dystopia where different characters will have different feelings about their scenario ranging from naive wonder to hitting their rage breaking point to existential dread. Most of the characters in the game will be attempting to figure out how to deal with the situation with the fewest problems and casualties possible using the mechanics available to them, though there are also children who will be sowing chaos (one of whom is a surly hostage) and the aforementioned rage and hunger to deal with. There is no pre-determined ending; everything is based on PC action, though a true "happy" ending for most characters was probably made impossible long before game start.
