About the adventure

Drakar is a sci-fi, indie microRPG inspired by the climate crisis, Norse iconography, and episodic science fiction television such as Star Trek: The Next Generation and The Expanse. The aim of the game is to pilot your ship, the Drakar, to a new homeland named Valhalla. The earth has been made uninhabitable by global warming, and the various human factions have made a break for the stars in the hope of finding new planets suitable for habitation. You belong to NORSE, the Nordic Office for Research into Space Exploration. No one can say how long the journey will take, but you have placed your faith in the Old Gods to guide you. The game is class-less and level-less, designed to be played as a one-shot or over a short campaign arc. The mechanics involve drawing dominos from a set along with the gamemaster, which determines whether your actions are successful or not. Accumulate enough successes as a crew, and you overcome the trouble your ship faces. As more of these troubles occur, your characters hopefully become more experienced, and the ship improves in its vital functions.

Gameplay details

Drakar is a classless microRPG, just over 50 pages in length, which uses a d6 to determine character skills (Power and Prowess) and ship scores (Bridge, Hull, and Systems). After character and ship creation, Drakar uses dominoes to determine which troubles characters face on their journey to Valhalla, and whether their actions to overcome the troubles are successful. It can be played as a solo game, a one-player-one-GM game, or with a group of 2 to 5 players.
