    About the adventure

    Strap in and blast off! You are in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Strap on rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you’ll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or brand new planets to explore. Whether you’re making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you’ll need each other. Hired to transport supplies to a new Pact Worlds colony in the Vast, the heroes make a horrible discovery. The heroes must liberate the colony from its merciless oppressors. This is your story... This is an asynchronous Play-by-Post Campaign. Players will utilize Discord channels for both in-character and out-of-character responses and will use Roll20 for tracking meta-game elements such as maintaining the character sheet and rolling dice and such.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    You will need logins for Discord (for the bulk of communications for play) and Roll20 (for character sheet usage and tracking rolls). During the Session Zero time period which will last until we obtain at least three players, fees will be set to $0. That time will be utilized for character creation.

    What I provide

    Gameplay details

    Session Zero is for character creation and reviewing campaign themes and can be separate Voice meetings with each Player in Discord as needed. Players will be expected to respond in a timely but reasonable manner. Combat and social encounters will obviously be micromanaged by the GM to some extent if a player cannot respond in a timely manner with sufficient notice. Players will be charged weekly but no charge will accrue if a Player requires an extended absence and is able to provide fair reasonable notice (based on the circumstances of course --- emergencies happen). Roll20 will not be used for tactical movement or such (although will be used for some visual aids but the majority of those will be through Discord). Think of Discord as being your "in-character" narrative responses and Roll20 as being your character sheet and dice rolls. In Roll20, you roll the dice for your attack ("roll 1d12+mods") but in Discord you "fire your plasma rifle at the monster's torso after he lunged at you".

    How will character creation work

    Session Zero is for character creation and reviewing campaign themes and will be separate Voice meetings with each Player in Discord. Exceptions can be made as needed. Players will be expected to respond in a timely but reasonable manner and the GM will utilize a Google calendar for maintaining response times. Combat and social encounters will obviously be micromanaged by the GM to some extent if a player cannot respond in a timely manner with sufficient notice. Players will be charged weekly but no charge will accrue if a Player requires an extended absence and is able to provide fair reasonable notice (based on the circumstances of course --- emergencies happen). Roll20 will not be used for tactical movement or such (although will be used for some visual aids but the majority of those will be through Discord).
