Savagery! Servility! Power! Control! On a remote planet orbiting a distant star, the worst criminal scum from a dozen star systems have been dumped, charged with building new lives under the watchful eye of Authority. Within a brutal hierarchy of savagery and servility, convicts and guards alike must make hard choices. Every colonist has their own code of conduct and their own aspirations - aspirations that invariably come at the expense of everyone else. Durance is a fast-paced, low-prep, highly collaborative game in the tradition of Fiasco.
