Thursday: The spaceport was reached and the PCs made legitimate members of civilisation with credit cards (or a chip in one case), and employment with the Free Scouts found. The Warlock was interviewed by the Esoteric Order of Starry Wisdom (Astrogator's guild), and rated at 13.3 -- high for a beginner. The Eldritch Knight, originally a lumberjill, was directed to the Scout Services -- not part of the Guild system -- where she was given a choice of libations; the watery looking milk in the wooden bowl did the trick and she went on a brief spirit journey, pinning the tail on the map location she would travel to and vidcord to assess the accuracy of her vision. Some vomit was involved.
Friday: A war scenario with Abbekqorru as the foils to the Vrun, and the mercenaries fighting against, then siding with the Humanoids. Trenches. 27 Str Armoured bear humanoids with metal claw gauntlets, etc. The half-Orc berserk Barbarian killed the bear champion and became the group's leader, finding himself a vassal of the larger Abbekqorru force. The orbital troop carrier the humanoids possess will continue to give them the advantage the at which Vrun would throw everything they could to gain. The same group had made pacts with Warlock plants granting them advantages on their Archetype paths. The green dragon bloodline Tiefling sorcerer made the beast with two backs with a night hag in exchange for knowledge of where his one eyed giant owl quest was located, and he gained a one-use magic item that would refresh his highest spell slot. Other fun was had.
Saturday: On the starshipWarden, the crew fought about thirty tribesmen, suffering only the loss of one porter (though, I think I forgot one Round of melee for the nasties) before the savages were put down. That took a while to run, but the session was primarily made up of chargen for two players who joined us -- one may be recurring.
Sunday: Conjunction of planets in the Av system creating dimensional weakness and the crossing over of Visitors from other planes. A brief visit to The Machine and back to Urutsk. Gryphon humanoids arrived and asked for help returning to their world. A meteoroid penetrated the surface of a rocky outcropping near a lake. The blue-green crystalline lifeform wanted to, 'Consume!'
A blog for The Urutsk Cycle and Related Subjects,
including the URUTSK: World of Mystery RPG.
Shipwrecked survivors of a galaxy-spanning empire (ruined when the core exploded) settle upon a wetlands world occupied by humans and other species. They then poke through ruins of their Ancient ancestors as they strive to regain space and then, starflight.

Urutsk Extreme Orbit and 1,750 year Seasons
Not saying the science here is the action at work in the setting, but, it may help someone get a feel for the Grand Year.

Sunday March 1st 2015
Starship Security remain at their post, depleting all Imperial medical goods. The cryotubes are giving them organ failure. They cyborg themselves until they are virtually liches. Nearly 2,000 years. Their brains rot away, so they use hard drives to record everything. They finally meet other Security Personnel, and ask to be relieved. They eject their hard drives and 'die'. The personalities in the drives ask to be reincarnated by the Aelbaan Ice Mage. Two come back as Vrun (yay for them). One comes back Dokirin, asks for a retry. Comes back as a Yirinn-Yaesh; asks to come back. Comes back full blooded Aelbaan. Happy enough to be one of the Allied People. The fourth officer comes back as a Halbean (Western Isles Vrun) and is happy, too.
Other things happened, too.
