    How to prepare

    To ensure a smooth gaming experience, players should have access to a functional microphone. Our session calls will be hosted through either Zoom or Discord, the choice of which will depend on the preferences of the players. No prior knowledge of character creation in the Fallout system is necessary; we will guide you through the process. We'll primarily use Discord for communication, with Zoom available as a backup option. It's a good idea to come prepared with some character names in mind. If you can, having an image to represent your character or finding one during character generation can add a fun visual element to the game. While cameras are not mandatory, having them on during the game is preferable, as it enhances the connection among players. However, we understand that circumstances vary, and it's not a strict requirement to join the game.

    What I provide

    As the Game Master, I'll ensure that every player has access to the necessary PDFs for the game books. Additionally, I will provide access to Foundry, including any required add-ons or compendium items. I'm excited to bring custom battle maps, immersive images, carefully curated music, and an engaging gameplay experience to the table. But most importantly, I'll be bringing a commitment to creating a fun and memorable journey for all players!

    Gameplay details

    James believes in creating a safe and respectful environment for all players. Therefore, certain sensitive topics will never be included in the game, such as sexual assault, real-world racism/phobias, or violence against harmless animals/children. The following themes are a possibility in the game and are subject to change: šŸ”„ Themes: Violence and Death Undead Creatures Poverty Struggles Graphic Gore Body Horror Survival in Harsh Environments Themes of Starvation Indentured Servitude (excluding PCs) Before we begin the game, we'll establish additional Lines and Veils during our Session 0 to ensure everyone's comfort and enjoyment. Pre-Game Bonding: James welcomes you by opening the virtual doors half an hour before the official game start. This gives everyone plenty of time for relaxed conversations and building camaraderie at the table. And when the game wraps up, feel free to stick around. James keeps the virtual doors open for an additional half hour to an hour, allowing players to share their Stars/Wishes, engage in further discussions, and connect with fellow players. It's a chance to reflect on the session, express your hopes, and continue building those bonds. Gameplay Style: James is dedicated to providing a rules-light gaming experience, ensuring that the focus is on storytelling and immersion. However, James remains flexible. If the table dynamics evolve into a more advanced gameplay style or if system rules demand it, James is open to adapting the gameplay to meet the needs of the players. Your enjoyment and comfort are James's priority, and he looks forward to embarking on this exciting journey together!

    How will character creation work

    Character creation will be a collective endeavour conducted during our Session 0. This serves as an opportunity for us to collaboratively shape our characters. To ensure we make the best use of this time, I recommend that players acquaint themselves with both the core Fallout RPG book and the player section of the Winter of Atom campaign ahead of our session. Coming prepared with robust character concepts will provide a solid foundation for our creative exploration during Session 0. Furthermore, players are encouraged to engage in discussions about character ideas on our Discord channel well before the official game starts. This early interaction allows us to share thoughts, brainstorm, and build excitement together.
