What do bounty hunters do when the galaxy no longer needs them?
InA Complicated Profession, they start new careers hosting intergalactic cruises for fickle passengers in lawless space...
ACP is a GM-less collaborative storytelling TTRPG for 3 to 5 players.
Play to reunite a disbanded crew of bounty hunters, jaded sidekicks, shabby droids and shady accomplices. Then pick a hosting role and start a new life together.
To playACP, you'll need:
at least 3 six-sided dice
a deck of playing cards (Jokers removed)
the printed player sheets
AlthoughACPis easy to learn, each game is varied and rewarding due to:
a choice of 8 hunter roles and 8 host roles (64 different combinations!)
a menu of 9 themed event playbooks, playable in any order
player-created ship assets that you’re rewarded for using
randomly generated contracts and passengers
During a game ofACP, you'll answer prompt questions, use unique skills and build on each other's stories to find solutions to the problems you'll face in your new career.
But don't forget to look after your passengers! At the end of each trip, they'll judge whether your crew fulfilled their contract. You'll also get to explore your home spaceport together and gather useful items.
All players start with two character sheets to reflect their past and present roles. But as you play, you'll gradually leave behind your hunter life, giving up your old name, possessions and skills.
By the end of the game, most players become experienced hosts, with a different set of skills and a nickname that reflects their new career. You'll also have a ship full of player-created items, decorations and maybe even a few extra crew members you've picked up along the way.
