FreeMarket Instruction Manual (PDF)


What is FreeMarket?

A transhumanist science fiction game set aboard a space settlement in the Saturnian system. Several generations are living on FreeMarket Station: the sons, daughters and grandchildren of the Originals; immigrant travelers from elsewhere in our solar system; and designed-to-order humans fabricated in 3d matter printers. It’s a world without death, without poverty, without sickness and without any need for laws.

What will you do with forever?

You could spend your days in blissful torpor browsing a universe of entertainment via your neural interface, oblivious to pain and hardship. But you’re not one of those baseliners, are you? You have hopes, dreams, fears, needs and passions. What will you do with forever?

Start a cult? Create new technologies or living creatures? Express yourself through art or violence? Make friends or Make enemies? Be human or become something else? You have more than a lifetime to discover who you really are.

Warning: contents may provoke thought

The FreeMarket Instruction Manual contains the entire FreeMarket system in a landscape-oriented PDF.  The original game was an elaborate, limited-edition boxed set.

Please note: you need at least two challenge decks, one technology deck and a bunch of tokens to play. The templates for these materials is not included in this PDF — you must create your own.
