I Fought the Law and I Won
On a prison station somewhere on the outer edge of the Sol System, just beyond the official reach of the UCS, a group of criminals and outlaws fight for their lives and freedom in gladiatorial blood sports where the winner is allowed to escape and the losers’ bodies get jettisoned into space.
During one of these death matches, a group of outlaws band together and cut through their opponents with barely a scratch. Except for one who ended up shooting himself in the foot. With their victory and freedom secured, the prisoners escaped the prison station. With the little money they won from their brutal decimation of the others, they secured themselves a ship and fuel before heading out into the Sol System to find their next adventure.
