A near-future space opera set in & around The Meadows, a casino-resort operating in the asteroid belt between Mars & Jupiter.
The Belt is a hard place to make a living but a good place to hide: beyond the reach of most governments and corporations, all kinds of dirty little secrets are kept out here where they won’t embarrass the folks back on Earth or Mars.
This coalition of unethical science and immoral business has accreted a service industry around it and at the heart of it all is The Meadows, a casino-resort where you can get anything your heart desires… at a price.
This game features the slow uncovering of a criminal conspiracy with repercussions for the entire solar system: will you be able to profit from the situation? Or are you going to spend all your hard won resources fighting to change the future?
The Arc: this is the essential technological conceit of the setting, that computer processing is fully distributed throughout architecture, devices and even clothing & jewellery. Characters commonly access the arc (augmented reality cloud) through glasses or lenses that project a user interface over their view: everyone who is connected to the arc has an arc-view that shows whatever they are looking at at the time.
