Sordid Dystopia – The Taxman Cometh

Today we have something very special for you, listeners, the first playtest session of Nate’s original system and setting Sordid Dystopia!

We begin in the small, seemingly normal town of Essenvie, with the King’s tax man en route for the first time in years.

In this town, the resident’s greatest enemy is “The Man Up in the Tax Man’s Cart,” and there is a great deal of this. This session, in addition to its entertainment factor, is a pristine example for you GMs on how players can succeed in derailing plots, and how to compensate.
