Together may we sink or swim…Join the Game
The hurricane during our first Role-playing Game Scenario left one seastead devastated and the other two recovering. Read all about it here. For Scenario 2, we have updated the rules, character skills, and how we track resources.
We have a new role for people who want to be involved but don’t want to play a character: Scorekeeper. Scorekeepers will help the Game Master track all the character actions and record changes in resources for characters and seasteads. This is a great role for someone who wants to be the Game Master for a future Scenario. Character selection begins on September 6, 2021. To become a Scorekeeper, let us know in the #registration-for-game channel of our Discord.
The Constitutional Cruise
The Crypto-Anarcho Citadel
Players will get to choose what character they wish to play from a pool of available characters, based in the order of highest dice roll to the lowest.
Founder characters will remain assigned to one of the three established seasteads.
Non-founder characters will have to ask the Founder characters if they can join their seastead. Players from Scenario 1 will have the opportunity to change their character and create new characters using our Blank Character Sheet.
Veronica Marianne Yavin Founder of The Constitutional Cruise
Richter Ivan Bossa Founder of The Crypto-Anarchist Citadel
Izabel Hashimoto Belluci Founder of The Co-Op

Rules Of The Game (v2)
- Each character starts with 10 Monies.
- Players can either do 3 Minor Actions or 1 Major Action per round.
- Each Minor Action must be different from each other.
Major Actions have larger successes or failures than Minor Actions.
- Minor Actions can reap +2 rewards.
- Major Actions can reap +5 rewards.
- A failed Minor Action will result in no rewards.
- A failed Major Action could have negative rewards.
Say you wanted to spend an action to gather resources: as a Minor Action, you can potentially gather 2 resources. As a Major Action, you would potentially be able to gather 5 resources.
You could spend one Minor Action to gather resources. You could spend one Minor Action gathering food. You can spend one Minor Action shoring up defenses. You could spend one Minor Action gathering intel on another seastead. You cannot however, spend three Minor Actions all gathering resources. Each Minor Action must be different.
Character Skills and Actions
The skills characters have can potentially add a “buff” or enhancement to their roll for specific tasks, leading to an increased chance of a success for each action.
Simon McKenna, one of the pre-made characters, is talented in Aquaponics, Aquaculture, and Horticulture, making him perfect for gathering food. Each of those skills would add a +2 to rolls, totaling in a +6 to any roll he makes regarding harvesting food.
The same can be said of Hira-Shinu Divakar, another one of the pre-made characters. Being talented in Security, Surveillance, and Tactics, they are well suited for gathering intel, gaining them a +6 to rolls.
However, a character like Founder Richter Ivan Bossa is a more eclectic individual and does not have any skills relevant to food gathering, so they would not have any buffs to food gathering but would get a buff for both intel and resource gathering as an Administrator. Which leads us to the next point:
Founder Characters get additional perks
- Founders get a buff of +4 for each of their skills and related Action tasks.
As Administrators, Founder characters get a +4 to gathering resources and intel.
- Their Minor Actions and Major Actions also reap larger rewards, as they have an entire seastead at their fingertips.
- Founder Minor Actions can reap +4 rewards.
- Founder Major Actions can reap +10 rewards.
