About the adventure

Someone has killed Bai Amari, the Luminary, a well-respected and beloved Scion of Ra. Who would want such a thing? Who could muster enough power to end the immortal life of a demigod? Is this a declaration of war? Who is behind this terrible tragedy? The Gods and their children feel the tremors of Titanic influence behind the mystery of the Luminary’s killing and have asked key personages (the player characters) to investigate if something more sinister is afoot. Mortal law enforcement investigated the murder on a mundane level, but they need the Scions’ power: Whoever it was must have the backing of someone, or something, supernatural. In this jump-start, one-shot, the characters must help solve the murder of an important member of their divine community before her killer can strike again and awaken a bright and terrible power.

This GM will have some visuals prepared and character art.

Gameplay details

This game will involve the often intense, conflicting, and confusing emotions, as well as the existential questions that come with sometimes complex family dynamics; with an added supernatural element. Some game mechanics are designed to allow players to effect how other characters (including player characters) will act or react based on skill checks. There is also an element of crime, deception, and manipulation in this game. That being said I will not have sexually explicit content in the game; any scenes headed that direction will fade to black or be interrupted with a convenient narrative moment. In running this game in the past, issues of murder, suicide, drunk driving, domestic violence, emotional/psychological manipulation, and stalking have come up and were dealt with in the context of the game without issue. However, it is my function as a GM to provide a safe and fun experience; and while topics like these can be "appropriate" in the context of the narrative I encourage players to discuss which topics the are an are not comfortable with and I will adjust as needed. If a topic comes up and is a triggering experience please use the "Red" "Yellow" and "Green" light system for adjusting the flow the narrative. Saying "Red (light)" or typing it in chat with all capital letters means that the current scene must stop and be significantly altered; two or more Red lights in a scene will stop play and a break will occur to process how and if the game will continue. "Yellow" will prompt the GM and players to avoid, fade to black, or alter the narrative in the moment without an abrupt stop; indicating that the player who used Yellow would like to avoid what they believe is about to be a triggering or very uncomfortable scene. "Green" (some times asked as a question), indicates that a player is comfortable with the scene. A player about to make an action they believe may make other players (including the GM) uncomfortable may ask "Green light?" if no one has said "Red" or "Yellow" as they prepare. Once asked the other players can respond as the need to (with Red, Yellow, or Green. I strive to GM a game that challenges and entertains players with only "Green" lights. Please connect with me for more information.
