“We came back [from Mars]," Pris said, "because nobody should have to live there. It wasn't conceived for habitation, at least not within the last billion years. It's so old. You feel it in the stones, the terrible old age.

A colony on Mars resembles more of a human landfill than a viable foothold on the planet.

To learn more about how Dialect is played check out our primer episode.

The characters for this game:

Em "Momo" (Eric Mersmann) - The scavenger who braves the wastes for new supplies.

Two "Deuces" (Jeff Dietlere) - The second child of the Mars Eternity colony, maintainer of the life-sustaining tech.

Madam Gisela "Shaman" (Ken Breese) - The naturalist healer that passes for a doctor on this rock.

Bizz Alden "Capatain" (John Holt) - The aged pilot of this doomed expedition.

The Setup:

Backdrop: The Outpost - a Martian colony 5 years since landed on the planet and out of communication with earth.

Main Location: Eternity - a termite hill of natural caves supplemented with scavenged hip tech and low-quality colony support equipment.

Aspects (1st Age):
Perpetual Storms
We are Expendable
There might be Something out there

The Language:
Sump - the act of working.
Dispo - the waste recycling unit we all depend on.
Posit - A marker of time, roughly twelve hours, based on when the machine needs waste inputs.
