When Storth arrives home after a long absence, there’s are a few things that need sorting out. Sometimes they can be more complicated than you initially thought.
But at least there are opportunities for an honest man to make money, with maidens to be rescued and tyrants slain, or was it the other way about.
And who uses energy carbines any more? Military fashions have moved on.

“You are Storth, ex-pilot and thief.”

“I have done rather more than that.” Storth sounded genuinely aggrieved.

“Yes but this is meant to be an identity check, not a charge sheet. We also felt mercenary, smuggler and thief verged on the tautological.”

“Oh, well I’m Storth.”

“And you are Hutton, wife of Storth, just a thief.”

“You could call me ‘Hutton, wife of Storth, housewife and thief’ if it makes it any better for your records.”


The Touchdown Collection is growing, sort of.

The idea is that ‘Touchdown’ isn’t just a place. It’s also a way of doing business. It’s the world (or galaxy) of the small space ship, wandering from world to world, picking up and dropping off cargoes as they do. Never spending longer in system than is really necessary for the job in hand. So at the moment there are three ‘systems’.
This map probably confuses things, but should give you an idea of what is happening.

The Hell by Starlight Campaigns sector is reasonably well mapped. The Caldoom Sector is at the start of the journey. The bottom left hand sector which contains the worlds of Touchdown and St Jerome, is partially mapped and described. At least from the novel, ‘In On A Chance’ mentioned above. Also St Jerome already has three scenarios set on it.

You’ll notice that there are blank areas around the map. Well they’re the bits we’re leaving for others to play with, to invent their own sectors and similar
