The game presents a stark and bleak roleplaying setting of life in a prison. Characters have a Fight Points pool that decreases (only) during play. Characters also have and use a variety of coins during play, indicating things such as years of sentence, convictions, and reputation. While the characters may assist each other from time to time, they do son only in their own best interest. The game is not necessarily competitive but will likely involve competitive scenarios. Characters also have a race (an actual race) that limits their access to certain prison gangs and social structures.
