When The Crash came, with its pleading Vectors and shambling Casualties, death marches and Recession, it was only natural that people would turn to religion. The people of Bountiful, Utah, flocked to the temple, trusting in The Lord to see them through the end. But the world went on, and now, five years later, the safe haven of the Bountiful Enclave seems more like a pen than a refuge. Five Takers, eager to make a name for themselves, set out on a mission of mercy to put a client’s beloved parents to rest. On the way, they’ll encounter forgotten scenes of horror from the early days of the apocalypse, impossibly trapped Casualties, and nearly impassable obstacles. Can they reach the retirement community, locate the client’s family and get the job done, or will they join the ranks of the dearly departed wandering endlessly within the retirement community’s gates? Listen to find out, as we kick off another Spooktober with the first installment of our Red Markets campaign!

It’s a simple job: go to the mall, break into the DMV and steal a bunch of shit for someone who needs it. The payout is pretty decent, too. Simple, right?

Well, nothing is simple in the Loss. It’s three legs from the enclave to the job site, and that’s plenty of time for shit to get cocked up and for someone to wind up dead. You’ll have to deal with greedy assholes who want to take what you’ve got and leave you for dead. And people who want in on your score, too. And the undead, of course.

And no one has been to this mall since the Crash. There’s probably a good reason for that. But as Takers, figuring shit like that out on the fly is all part of the job.

Join us as Rag-NERD-rok playtests the quick-start rules to “Red Markets,” and the players learn just how hard life can be west of the Recession.
