InDebt (PocketQuest 2023)


A multi-colored blue polygon that reads:

Thank you for joining our Debt Repayment Program. Your debt of 1,000,000,000 credits should be repaid in 374 years, but with Androno Corp it'll fly by in a jiffy!

InDebt is an exciting and easy to play dystopian sci-fi game about repaying your creditors. Creditors who created you with the express purpose to labor for their needs with the far off promise of eventual liberation. Can you pay off your debt? Or will you be trapped in Androno Corp's brutal repayment scheme? Go on jobs, try to pay off your debt, pick up a gun, and try to buy your freedom.

InDebt is a galaxy overrun by unrestricted megacorps that promise self-regulation, but deliver untold exploitation of their human and android workers. They lie, cheat, steal, and backstab their way through the galaxy and what remains of politicians to gain the most power, no matter who they have to step on to get there. This limited regulation has created the Human Conversion program, a method of turning the human consciousness into an Android body for the purpose of exploiting indebted people for cheap labor. You are one of these souls, in debt and coerced into a program that eternally traps you.

Easy To Learn: A rules-lite 1d10 system that's simplified and streamlined. You can start playing as quick as it takes you to read 20 pages.

No Prep: GMs have access to a variety of roll tables to help craft ship layouts, jobs, and artifacts to quickly prep - or even prep as you play - for those nights when half your players cancel last minute.

A TTRPG Roguelite: Death isn't permanent, players are never out of a game for too long if they go down. Artifacts provide random gameplay altering buffs and debuffs for unique builds. Skills and classes can be reset before each job so you can find the perfect playstyle for you. Roll tables mean each ship is different and wildly unique, even if they are a little weird.

Endless Job Possibilites: Random job roll tables will give you a different job each time, especially with a bit of your favorite GM's narration added in.

All you need is a few polyhedral dice and some scrap paper to scribble your character info and notes on. 

This download includes the complete, 20 page, core rule book for InDebt.

An easy to pick-up-and-play game with enough complexity and variety to make you want to try out everything. System is quick to learn, and lends well to a "theater-of-the-mind" style of play, but could easily be fleshed out into a deeper, tact [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
