2400: The Venusian Job

Nobody’s ever robbed The Aphrodite — but then, you’ve never tried before. Stealing credits is more trouble than it’s worth, so your target is the vault, with millions in wealthy guests’ souvenirs and collateral. It won’t be easy to break into a casino that rises above the Venusian cloud cover, but make it out of this alive, and you’ll be set for life — provided you don’t leave a trace.

The Venusian job is a super-slim, self-contained, lo-fi sci-fi RPG about pulling off a casino heist on another planet. It’s inspired by Ocean’s Eleven and Leverage, and built with the same rules as the free 24XX SRD. It’s 3 pages and a cover, fitting on two sides of a letter-sized page.

What is 2400? 2400 is lo-fi sci-fi. It’s centuries in the future, and it’s a decades-old modem that screams like a dying robot when it connects to the net. It’s a space ship with an FTL drive, artificial gravity, and a flickering display you gotta tap a few times to see the jump coordinates. It’s hacking something together with whatever cheap materials you have on hand, ignoring the rules until you need them, banging out something that might not sound finished, but definitely sounds fun. It’s a series of micro RPGs that might all be in the same setting, unless they aren’t.
