Control Codes

Introduction

This adventure uses the SHGGFTAWSGDSSFDF setting by Dan Suptic. You will need to be familiar with both Risus and SHGGFTAWSGDSSFDF to run this game.

This adventure takes place in the Farscape universe, so is best for fans of that show. It's set slightly before the first Farscape episode.

As per the standard setup for SHGGFTAWSGDSSFDF, don't give your players any clues as to what kind of game they're going to play. Just tell them to create standard characters, from any period, setting, or genre. Don't let them discuss or compare their characters.

Mission

Mr Kuri-kana-suro-san hands the characters a data chip with a Peacekeeper logo on it (the chip contains Moya's control codes). He says, “You deliver this to Dominar Rygel XVI. Not deliver, get bamboo sword. You go to Transportertron now!”

Arrival

They will arrive at a commerce planet, in a shopping area. Moya is in orbit, part of a peacekeeper fleet. It is not common knowledge that Rygel XVI has been imprisoned, but some are aware or have heard rumours. Rygel was deposed and imprisoned over 130 cycles ago. The current dominar is Bishan I.

The characters will need to find a transporter. Then they will need to find Moya. She's the only leviathan, and the only prison ship, in the fleet.

Several NPCs are listed below that may be useful. Karvok has information that will help, but will want to be paid for the information. Kornata will be willing to buy DNA from them, thus providing them with currency that could be used to pay Karvok. Bekhesh will be able to transport them for a fee.

Delivery

They will need to persuade Pilot to allow them onto Moya.

The characters will have to get past guards, either by avoiding or fighting them. Each guard has a pulse pistol.

Rygel may be in his cell or elsewhere. He has learned how to get around Moya's narrow passages. He will be suspicious, and assume they're a trap of some sort.
