A Complicated Profession + PDF

What do bounty hunters do when the galaxy no longer needs them?

In A Complicated Profession, they start new careers hosting intergalactic cruises for fickle passengers in lawless space...

About the Game:

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 play ACP, you'll need:

  • at least 3 six-sided dice
  • a deck of playing cards (Jokers removed)
  • the printed player sheets
Although ACP is 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 of ACP, 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.

Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now.

All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
