Review & Commentary On EPIC! By Silvia Clemente For Wretched Space & The Cha'alt Rpg - Bonus 1d20 Space Brothel Finds Table For Your Old School Games

 "EPIC! is Silvia Clemente 's entry to Darrick Dishaw's Cha'alt Game Jam:

"In the Adityan homeworld, The Cronos, an ancient power source, has awakened and disrupted from its slumber by events taking place far away on the remote desert planet Cha'alt. The Cronos will drag its Adityan Guards all the way across the galaxy and into the path of a group of scoundrels forcefully recruited to police the ass of the Galaxy - also known as the Outer Rim - as part of the Wretched Legion. Neither Adityans nor Legionaries are interested or prepared to save the Galaxy. First and foremost, they must survive the threats and treachery of Theta Blue, the most infamous space station in the system.

" This Wretched Space scenario was written for the Cha'alt Game Jam and it is the first episode for Wretched Cha'alt, a series of adventures mixing the two universes. EPIC! is inspired by Alpha Blue, and takes place mainly in Theta Blue, a wretched knock-off of the famous space brothel."
So Epic is a 
 Silvia Clemente adventure & her introduction to the Cha'alt universe. And it has all of the hallmarks of one of the Red Room's supplements or adventures. Tough as nails editing & content. Solid presentation and an attention to plot details. There are some twists & turns that can easily be added into an ongoing  Chartreuse Shadows game easily.  Silvia Clemente once again shows her hand at adventure design defly handling Cha'alt with her own spin on the Wretched Legion, and the factions that crop up in Epic. Epic clocks in at a hundred pages of intergalactic sleaze. Man this out Venger's Venger in places. 

EPIC! brings several things to the table top an adventure with that wretchverse interstellar action & the traditional Satanis weirdness that we've come to expect out  the Red Room. Are the encounters balanced?! Nope, EPIC! offers no safe harbor for PCs in this universe of sleaze. Instead we get factions at each other's throats capable of ripping apart your PC's. The quality is there in EPIC! & for an experienced group of Cha'alt or Wretchedverse adventurers this would be an excellent mid level adventure.
