The Ship The Ancient Phlogiston!
It is flamboyant & speedy...
But is too cold!
The Mission The kobolds have been sent to a derelict Space Whale
in order to claim this place in the name of the Kobold Empire!

The Adversary They're challenged by Bax, a Bored Trillionaire and their minion, Gray Goo!
They've turned to villainy as a hobby; most of their plans involve acquiring wealth even if it costs more than they'll get, because the intellectual exercise is the point. They love complicated plots, especially if they can explain them to the kobolds.
Their minion: World-eating nanites; they may not have actually eaten a world yet, but will if left uncontrolled. They are widely-distributed and must be fully destroyed or they will regenerate.
The stats of the trillionaire:
Order: 5, Chaos: 5, Brains: 6, Body: 3

The stats of the goo:
Order: 4, Chaos: 6, Brains: 6, Body: 4

Book of Convoluted and often Contradictory Regulations
This staple of lawyermancy can be used to confuse a being into believing they need to comply with the wielder's demands for one event. This does nothing if they are ordered to harm (or commit actions that will lead to harm, like stepping into an airlock...) themselves or an ally. After this time they become resentful that they were ordered around and are likely to retaliate.

Potion of Freeze Drying
An organic character that drinks this potion will shrink to 20\% of their original size while expelling all of the water in their body. Clothing and equipment are not affected. The character enters a state of suspended animation that can be reversed by soaking their body in water for a few seconds. While in this state the character does not need to eat, drink, or breathe. Any beneficial or detrimental effects on the character are 'paused' until the effect is reversed.

"The Book"
If thrown at a being that is in violation of an applicable law or regulation (player picks, GM decides after "The Book" is thrown whether it works), throwing "The Book" at that being does 1 Brains damage. This counts as an event but no roll is needed. Regardless of the results, "The Book" is not sturdy enough to be thrown twice.

Potion of Gym Membership
Temporarily adds one (1) to the character's Body Stat, even if it's already at maximum. This effect ends when the character takes Body damage or a nap.

Ultra-Quickplay Rules

Completing a task (making an attack, cleaning a surface, activating a device) is an Event. If you're the first person to say they're doing something, your Event goes first.

To complete a task, combine two of your stats (Order or Chaos + Brain or Body) and roll 2d6.
If you roll under, you succeed; over, you fail; hit the target number, you get a partial success.

If you take damage, temporarily reduce your Brain or Body stat by 1, depending on what kind of damage you took.
You can regain stats by taking a nap.

If you use a reusable gadget, you have to take a nap before you can use it again. If someone else hands you a reusable gadget, you have to take a nap before you can use it. (You can use non-reusable gadgets right away.)
