You have a right to quit the game. You have a right to do that, but you have no right to judge me. It’s impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what GMing means.

Instead of being sentinels investigating a mystery, this adventure focuses on an erasure squad, one of Firewall’s tactical assault teams. A rare opportunity has presented itself to take out a facility held by exhumans. However, Firewall did not have time to send in one of its experienced teams. They assembled a new erasure squad with whatever operatives were available at the time. Thus, a team composed of a SAIROC-K model variant, an ultimate mercenary, an autonomist machine fighter, and a scum warrior, led by a Triad enforcer will have to face whatever horrors lurk within a mysterious habitat in the Main Belt.
