Five Parsecs: Odi Sante Mission Update

This is going to be something of a review of where the crew of the Odi Sante are at the moment and be an introduction into the next round of three games in the campaign. I an acutely aware that I have not played a game of 5 Parsecs for some time and it has been a game I have loved for some time now. The new version brought out last year was a welcome review and only made the game more interesting for me. 

Game One
In a local bar the newly formed crew of the Odi Sante met a local militia gang leader, Sal Bleng who needed Lin a coder to reach a very specific terminal in an industrial part of Horst interface with it and not be disturbed. Unfortunately some Alien Mercs had already staked the area out. After a quick firefight the Mercs retreated and the day went to the crew earning them 3 creds.

Game Two
This game was just one of those opportune moments, when it looks like nothing could really go wrong. The crew catch wind that a cache of weapons has been dropped near the crossroads and that the Mutants that were supposed to pick them up are late and poorly organised. Sounds like a win win situation. With the Mutants driven off and the cache secured the crew passed it to a dealer who gladly paid 6 creds unseen. Big mistake, because the container was full of novelty stuffed toys, worth nothing. Octoba Mensce, the dealer, is now an enemy of the crew, but luckily the Mutants are not.

Game Three
The crew were forced to work for Sal Bleng on Horst yet again, desperate as they were to get off planet. They were asked to destroy a statue to a Punk gang leader which had become a bit of an icon for gangs in the downtown area of the planet.( Horst is just about one huge city.)
The crew managed to blow it up and shoot down quite a few punks in the process.
Hopefully they will have enough creds to buy the fuel they need to get off world.

Unfortunately, due to medical costs etc the crew only come away with 3 creds not enough to get off Horst and the clutches of Mr Bleng.

Thanks to Ivan Sorensen for creating Five Parsecs from Home
it has been great fun to play all these years.

This post sort of announces the next three campaign games which will follow shortly.
