Campaign of the Month: January 2011
Honour Among Thieves
Auction and Impound
Some gamblers on Santo don’t just lose their shirts. They lose their stake, their mule, the deed to their house, and their spaceship.
Santo’s gambling consortium is all too happy to extend lines of credit to visitors, provided that credit is backed up by something tangible. In most cases, they will take anything the gambler is willing to sign over – personal belongings, services, assets, tickets offworld.
Agents working for the gambling consortium (known as the Commission) are within their legal right to seize property or otherwise “hold it in trust” while the money is spent. They do that in the Auction & Impound complex, a virtual fortress and marketplace where everything is for sale, with very few questions asked.
