The “UWA Rossman” is on a mission to patrol a backwater stretch of space that borders the hostile Sol Combine. The mission promised to be a quiet one of planetary surveying and exploration but fate has different plans. Will our intrepid crew be able to navigate these unforeseen circumstances or will the “UWA Rossman” be lost? Tune in to find out!
Gameplay: Stellar Front: Border Encounter is a structured freeform LARP that uses an accelerant-lite system for boffer combat for physical resolution as well as a timed turn-based tabletop game for space combat. The game is heavily influenced by the computer games FTL and Space Team and has a pulp sci-fi aesthetic. The game will run for 3-4 hours and have a rules and gameplay briefing. A mid-game break will provide a few minutes of respite for rehydration and use of the restrooms.
All roles are capable of doing other roles on the ship including repelling boarding actions but some are just better skilled or equipped to do so. When things get going it is not uncommon for a Scientist to take the gunnery station or a Marine to attempt to repair a damaged system.
