Space Patrol: Sergeant Anne-Marie Duscat

Born with a natural attention to detail and suspicion of others, Anne-Marie Duscat trained as a Marine intelligence analyst and Patrol security officer. Her assignment to the Kiran Bedi marks her first field work after years on the security staff of a Patrol base on Titus III.

Duscat discovered her psionic abilities during a Marine training mission. A micrometeorite storm punctured the hull of her shuttlecraft. One fellow trainee was killed instantly. The other helped Duscat patch the hull before succumbing to internal injuries. With comms down and the closest ship nearly a day away, Duscat watched her oxygen slowly dwindle. Rather than accept death, Anne-Marie managed to place herself in a psionically induced state of suspended animation until rescue arrived.

Sergenat Duscat is a nondescript, light-skinned blonde woman who appears to be about 18 years old, though she is in fact nearly a decade older. She is quiet but friendly, though her habit of slipping through the ship unannounced puts some of her crew-mates off.

Discworld RPG Review

The Discworld Roleplaying Game is a standalone fantasy RPG written by Phil Masters with rules based on GURPS Fourth Edition by Steve Jackson Games. It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.
