Hilarious! I love Depeche Mode, and having good hair is a must if I'm T'can T'can. Hey, is my lasgun loaded?

I'm a little concerned with the high risk on the DC. Did you play test 4, 5, and 6 and find it too easy? Also losing a die on a 1 is so harsh! I almost wish there was a restoration mechanic. This is just me complaining, feel free to ignore. I might be having a bad hair day.

The thematic connection is really strong.  Making the death of the sun the center of the game because it's a friggin' phylactery? Heck yes. I also really like connecting an adjective to dice rolls because it combines ability scores, critical fail penalty, character sheet detail, and backstory into one slick mechanic. By the way, my hero is named Pet Shop Roy. Or Ben With Hats.
