Explore the eerie corridors of a derelict warship in this self-contained game of Stars Without Number, a space opera roleplaying game. This event will take you through all the core components of play, from character creation to exploration, roleplay, vehicle rules, and quick-rolling replacement characters after your first one dies horribly. Treasures of a forgotten age lie within that frozen hull, but your crew of scientists and marines will need to keep their wits about them if they want to survive the battleship's tender embrace.

For over half a millenium, the battleship named Guillotine has drifted through the outer reaches of the Kwande system, just one more victim of the psychic cataclysm that broke the galaxy-spanning Mandate of Humanity in 17 hellish minutes. As the descendants of humanity emerge from the atmosphere beneath which they fled some 500 years ago, this relic of a golden age awaits them, full of lost technology and knowledge. There's just the small matter of the decaying orbit which will soon plunge the Guillotine into the system's star, the inscrutable technology aboard, the demented security systems, and the normal space-bound hazards of exposure, radiation, extreme cold and oxygen starvation...
