Interplanetary Code Duello
A downloadable game
As humanity spread across the solar system, establishing permanent settlements on the inner planets, society got a bit…odd. Perhaps it was the bloodlust that typically accompanies colonization, or perhaps it was the growing distinctions of different planetary cultures, but folks just seemed to be more ornery. And to regulate this fractiousness, the peoples of the solar system revived the ancient practice of dueling to settle disputes. And to ensure some measure of fairness in their barbarity, they adopted The Interplanetary Code Duello, the indispensable rules for the duels.
In Interplanetary Code Duello, four players will role-play as the parties to a duel: the offended party, the offending party, and their respective seconds. The seconds will do everything they can to resolve the dispute without having to resort to actual combat. But if they fail, shots will be exchanged, and it’s unlikely that everyone will escape unscathed.
This is meant to be played in epistolary fashion, using email or equivalent messaging application of your choice, and a final duel (if one should occur) taking place via videoconference.
