About the adventure

Hot on the trail of a member of the sinister Cabal, a group of London-based Rippers will soon find themselves pit against a heretofore unknown shadowy organization with ties to an ancient and powerful evil. Should the Rippers be successful, they are sure to alter the course of history. Deathless is an original gothic horror story that uses the Rippers: Resurrected setting for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. Players take on the role of Rippers, a group of monster hunters that surreptitiously protect the innocent from monsters, evil doers, witches, warlocks, and other things that go bump in the night. The GM is incredibly flexible and friendly to players new to the system. Players will receive a packet detailing the setting upon sign up. Session Zero will be used to determine: -Characters and their relationships -Expectations and play style -The level of historical accuracy players are comfortable with -Test session connections -Establish boundaries for decorum and civility

How to prepare

Players will need to install the Fantasy Grounds Unity VTT in order to participate in sessions. The Free Demo version is sufficient to join in. Chat will be held over Discord. Webcam is not required, but a working microphone is. Headsets with dedicated microphones are advised to help shut out ambient noise, but are not required. Familiarity with the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition Rule Set is appreciated, but not required. The GM has extensive experience teaching the system to young children and keeps several visual aides on file to help those new to the system adjust. Players will have the opportunity to create their own characters or have the GM create a setting appropriate character for them. Character sheets will be managed through the VTT.

What I provide

The GM has a copy of the Fantasy Grounds Unity Ultimate License. All manuals, dice, sheets, maps, etc. will be managed through the software. Players will have access to these as well as supplementary materials. Other materials, as reasonable, can be provided upon request.

Gameplay details

Software Requirements: This game will be hosted over the Fantasy Grounds Unity VTT. The GM holds the FG Ultimate License, therefore all players need to is the free demo version of the software to participate. Voice communication will be held over Discord. The GM also uses a secondary computer to provide backup should any player experience issues with the VTT during sessions. _________________ Session Zero will be used to determine: -Characters and their relationships -Expectations and play style -The level of historical accuracy players are comfortable with -Test session connections _________________ With regards to the setting: Despite being frequently romanticized, it is no secret that the Victorian Era was also a time of untold human suffering. Classism, Racism, Colonialism, Sexism, and several other troublesome ideologies were prevalent throughout the era. These toxic examples of human ignorance were as wrong and dangerous then as they are today. They are unfortunately, a sad truth of history; and in studying that history, they can be learned from. While none of these behaviours will be tolerated on the part of participants. Players will have the opportunity during Session Zero to decide how much these human evils prevalent in that era factor into the world of the story. _________________ With regards to safety tools, etc: -I hold an open door policy through email for players to voice any concerns. Furthermore, players are encouraged to communicate with the GM during sessions about any discomfort either openly, or privately through VTT private messages (/w GM). So long as civility is maintained, all requests and concerns will be addressed in kind at the earliest possible convenience.
