  We are a society of functionally immortal, cybernetically modified, telepathic infovores. Our society is centered on a reputation-based economy in which the basic needs of all — sustenance and shelter — are accounted for. If you wish to do more than just survive—if you wish to create, perform, build or destroy—you must win the approval of your friends and the community at large.

Our “community at large” is currently about 80,000 strong. It is contained in a Stanford Torus-style space station parked at a lagrange point between Tethys, Titan and Saturn. Our habitat was designed to hold 40,000 comfortably. We’ve modified it to accommodate our expanding numbers. Considering that there is no death, no laws and no crime in our society, we think we’re doing a fair job.

You are now one of us. Welcome!

 

 

A transhuman science fiction game set aboard a space settlement in the Saturnian system. Several generations are living on FreeMarket Station: the sons, daughters and grandchildren of the Originals; immigrant travelers from elsewhere in our solar system; and designed-to-order humans fabricated in 3d matter printers.

It’s a world without death, without poverty, without sickness and without any need for laws. You could spend your days in blissful torpor browsing a universe of entertainment via your neural interface, oblivious to pain and hardship. But you’re not one of those baseliners, are you? You have hopes, dreams, fears, needs and passions.

What will you do with forever?

Start a cult? Create new technologies or living creatures? Express yourself through art or violence? Make friends or Make enemies? Be human or become something else? You have more than a lifetime to discover who you really are.

Warning: contents may provoke thought!

The FreeMarket boxed set contains everything you need to engage with the station and Go For It:

  • a full-color, 150-page instruction manual explaining the world and itsrules
  • five challenge card decks and one technology deck for engaging with the system
  • 24 bug chips, 5 attaboy tokens, and a gift, frownie and friend token
  • a pad of user profile sheets
  • a pad of MRCZ/backup profile sheets
  • four sample user profiles, each with a complete short story detailing one of the four generations
