This is the index page for Rusting Chrome, a Mass Effect roleplaying game potentially run by Syntax using Sprawl, a Powered by the Apocalypse rule system focusing on collaborative storytelling with badass operators in a Mass Effect setting spiced with cyberpunk values: can you trust your employer and team not to backstab you for one more mission? How costly is it to maintain your humanity when even parts of yourself are outsourced to machines?

I'm aiming to get this off the ground with a pilot adventure sometime in the summer (June-July 2018). Feel free to poke me if you're interested in playing or want to talk about the system and my modest hacks for it.

Dev status: Everything that's up right now is playable, except for example lists for weapons and other portable gear and customization thereof. Next big step: filling out gear lists and unifying terminology on gear and technology. After that, a bunch of text for the setting and other fluff.
