OPERATION HORUS NIGHTFALL is a one-shot science fiction module for 3-5 Contractor players and 1 Mission Control (MC, also known as game master) player. Based on the 2400 system by Jason Tocci, players will board and investigate Horus Station in the hopes of uncovering what has happened to the station and its crew.

This module is designed to be easy to play and run, with the explicit purpose of introducing players to role-playing in general. The player briefing, setting introduction, and hints for the module are all included in the player handout, which also doubles as a rules explanation and character sheet with guided character creation. The MC document contains detailed station maps of each layer and explanations of encounters. 

The player handout is provided for free so that players can find and download the play materials easily.
