Players take the role of a character dumped in the CrapsackWorld that is the Human Occupied Landfill, a PenalColony run by the Confederation of Worlds (C.O.W.) that also doubles as a literal galactic landfill, where everything from candy wrappers to nuclear waste rests alongside the prisoners. [=HoL=] itself is full of gangs, other criminals, and native creatures with the happy name of Fleshtenders to contend with, all for the amusement of the law-abiding citizens of C.O.W. who can watch the planet's prisoners fight as entertainment, via special camera bots called Crickets. The characters must survive and escape by any means possible, but it's not going to be easy. Particularly when the more useful skills a character can have include "Make Sharp Things Go Through Soft Things That Scream and Bleed", "Tolerate Hideous Amounts of Bloody Mutilation and Still Eat Fast Foods," or "Turn Radios Into Howitzers." There's also the added complications of C.O.W's mortal enemy, the [[SdrawkcabName Sedud Neerg Elttil Eshot]], making trouble for the Confederation itself.

'''[=HoL=]''', short for "Human Occupied Landfill" is a [[TabletopGames roleplaying game]] originally released in 1994 by Dirt Merchant Games. It's a {{Satire}} of several famous roleplaying systems, plots, and conventions, including ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', the TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness series by WhiteWolf, and many others. The game was written by two long-time gamers, usually on late nights at a local IHOP, originally as attempt to create their own game based on SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} and later to outright make fun of the complicated and often contradictory rules in role-playing games.

* PlotArmor: Figuratively, and almost literally. The Dickens Boys were originally collections agents for the imperial library. This being a CrapsackWorld, their job was more dangerous than RealLife repossession agents, so they had to arm themselves. The standard issue body armor they use is called WarAndPeace Armor, and it's the best armor in the game. Why? Because ''nobody'' gets through ''[[DoorStopper War and Peace]]''.

** "What's more fun than a barrel full of monkeys? A GRENADE, THAT'S WHAT!" Upon detonation, the "Barrel of Monkeys Grenade" flash aged a hundred fertilized silverback gorilla zygotes into adult maturity. [[OhCrap Just think about that for a second]].
