You did a good job with 200 words, but I kinda hope there is a bit more direction for the GM to portray Station Nord.

I really like the mechanics here for cold, wounds, challenges, difficulties, dis/advantages. Very nicely balanced. It's going to be hard on the narrator to come up with a time-line for reaching the station and returning to (where? the broken copter?) as well as at least one challenge a day to keep the players on their toes.

Looks like a fun time!

Solid all around. Well done.

The mechanics seem to enforce a really solid equilibrium between player and narrator.  I love how the mundane setting and accurate description of the dangers gives the narrator a lot of challenges to work with.  Heck, given that the items are all necessities, the process of character creation alone is enough to create an entire threat arc for a game.

Very solid entry, good luck!
