YOUR JOBS

(Profit / catastrophe) Choose 3 paying jobs Bodyguarding (1-barter / embattled) Surveillance (1-barter / deceived) Pirate raiding (1-barter / embattled) Enforcement (1-barter / overthrown) Honest work (1-barter / impoverished) Entourage (1-barter / entangled) Deliveries (1-barter / bushwacked) Infiltration (1-barter / discovered) Scavenging (1-barter / impoverished) Brokering deals (1-barter / shut out) Technical work (2-barter / shut out) Planetary defense (2-barter / infiltrated) Hunting bounty (3-barter / embattled) And choose 1 obligation job Avoiding someone (you keep well clear / they catch you in a bad spot) Paying debts (you keep up with them / they come due) Revenge (you victimize someone / they humilate you) Protecting someone (nothing bad happens to them / they’re gone) Pursuing luxury (beauty in your life / you wind up in a bad spot) Maintaining your honor (you keep your word and your name / you cross a line) Seeking answers (you get a clue / you chase a red herring)

Your ship’s ugly, but she’s all yours. That baby never left you down. She’s all you need. Some people want a nice, quiet life. All you want is to keep travelling the galaxy till the day you die. You don’t care about the empire, the crime syndicates, the rebellion and all that. You do what you must to refuel and maintenance your beauty, and you keep on cruising the stars.

ADDITIONAL RULES
DOING ODD JOBS
Paying jobs on screen: • Profit: the GM can choose whether to come in on the end of the successful job, or let the whole job happen in summary, off-screen. • Catastrophe: the GM can come in on the moment when the job goes south, or you can summarize the job going south and come in on the aftermath. Obligations on screen: • Profit: the GM can choose whether to come in on the end of your accomplishing it, or let it pass without much remark. • Catastrophe: the GM should come in on the moment when it goes south, as a rule. • Unworked: an unworked obligation is an opportunity for the GM.

YOUR CREW
Your crew or contacts can consist entirely of the other players’ characters, or entirely of the GM’s characters, or any mix. If they include any of the GM’s characters, sketch them out — names (eg Roark, Bekkar, Mace, Jada) and 1-line descriptions — with the GM. Make sure they’re competent and suited to the gigs you’ve chosen.

BUDGET PERIPHERIC MOVES
When you give 1-budget to someone, but with strings attached, it counts as convincing them and hitting the roll with a 10+, no roll required. When you hit the black market looking for some particular thing to buy, and it’s not obvious whether you should be able to just like go buy one like that, roll+smart. On a 10+, yes, you can just go can buy it like that. On a 7–9, the GM chooses one of the following: • it costs 1-budget more than you’d expect • it’s available, but only if you meet with a guy who knows a guy • damn, I had one, I just sold it to this guy named Rolfball, maybe you can go get it off him? • sorry, I don’t have that, but maybe this will do instead? When you make known that you want a thing and drop bribes to speed it on its way, roll+budgetw spent (max roll+3). It has to be a thing you could legitimately get this way. On a 10+ it comes to you, no strings attached. On a 7–9 it comes to you, or something pretty close. On a miss, it comes to you, but with strings very much attached.

SMUGGLER MOVES
Odd jobs: you get 2-juggling. Whenever there’s a stretch of downtime in play, or between sessions, choose as much or fewer jobs to work as your juggling. Roll +cool. On a 10+ you get profit for all the jobs you chose. On a 7-9 you get profit for at least 1 job; if you choose more than one job, you get catastrophe from 1 and profit for the rest. On a miss, all catastrophes. Jobs you aren’t working get you neither profit nor catastrophe. When you get a new job, get +1juggling.

COOL

HIGHLIGHT

Let’s get the hell out of here: name your escape route and roll +cool. On a 10+ you’re out. On a 7-9 you can stay or go, but if you go that’s going to cost you: either you get hurt, leave something behind or take something with you. On a miss you’re caught in a bad place, half in and half out. I know people: when you meet an important NPC (your call), roll +cool. On a hit, they heard of you, you say what they’ve heard. On a 10+ you also get +1ongoing with them and you can take +1history with them. On a miss, the GM will decide what they’ve heard of you. Reckless: when you boldly go into danger without care or caution, take +1armor. If people follow you, they take +1armor as well. Poker face: when you convince a NPC, roll +cool. When you convince another player’s character, roll +history.

DYING MOVE
When you die, give your ship to another player’s character. When this character is in the ship, your former character can communicate with them as directly or symbolically as you wish. When they ask the ship what’s their best course of action, tell them what you honnestly think they should do. If they do it, they get +1 in the course of it. If they don’t succeed, they mark experience.
