An amber hue washes over the beach. A sun blazes victoriously through the industrial factory smog. Light catches hot sauce fumes on the top of clouds. Underneath, warm bodies swim, read, cuddle, consume, and kiss.
There is something special about solo games. Tabletop roleplaying games are often crowded collaborative experiences (like I imagine the confines of a space freighter). Themes of sexuality, isolation, and trauma can be explored in different ways when alone.
Hot Stuff on Shore Leave is also fully playable as a stand-alone experience.
About the game:
The setting of Hot Stuff on Shore Leave is Port Taxico. Part island resort destination, part hot sauce manufacturing plant, the island has some of the most renowned sunsets due to its spicy industrial smog. Each year, millions take time away from their oppressive jobs to enjoy warmer days in the sun and hotter nights on the strip.
Each session of Hot Stuff on Shore Leave can be played in 15 minutes. The zine has enough prompts [over 70 ] to ensure you have a new experience each time. Activities include dancing, sightseeing, dating, hooking up, eating, crying, and more.
Each shore leave (the rest period between corporate off-world jobs) you will participate in one daytime and one nighttime activity. These activities will generate writing prompts to help you further explore the deep, dark, and beautiful parts of your Mothership character. Optional Mothership compatible rules will reduce stress, heal wounds, treat trauma and allow you to train or moonlight on other jobs.

WE DO NOT HOLD ITEMS
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.
Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible.
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.
