What if Australia was founded…IN SPACE?!
That’s the oddball set-up for Durance, a science fiction storytelling RPG that takes the age of colonialism and transports it into the distant future. Inspired by England wrangling control of the Australian continent through penal colonies, this inspired game from designer Jason Morningstar (of Fiasco fame) sees players working together to build a prison colony on a distant and hostile planet. Playing as both the convicts and the authorities, 3-5 gamers tell the bizarre (and usually violent) history of their colony in a totally reasonable 2-3 hour game session.
