Ok, I've been reading thru this section of the forum, PXP sounds amazing! Can anyone sort of give me what the gist of this game is (other than that the game is all about treachery and whatnot). How do the mechanics work?

The game itself basically involves a lot of roleplaying and some simple ruleplaying mechanics using a d20. You need to roll equal or lower to one of your characters scores - like Energy Weapon or Nuclear Engineering - to succeed at something, modified by anyone who cares to spend points to improve or hinder your role.
