    About the adventure

    You're attending a Ghostbusters recruitment seminar at the original firehouse in Lower Manhattan, hoping to be one of the chosen few to join the ranks of the legendary team. Before the presentation begins, a surge of psychokinetic energy rocks the building. The lights flicker, and the air hums with a palpable charge. Frantic calls pour in as ghosts materialize all over the lower east side. The local team is already stretched thin, so it's up to you and your fellow recruits to step up and save the day! As you work to contain the ghosts, you'll encounter a cast of colorful characters (both living and dead). Some civilians may help you, while others might be worse than the ghosts you'll face. But with the fate of the city hanging in the balance, you'll need to work together as a team to get the ghosts contained before the problem spreads. With an action-packed storyline, plenty of humor, and the chance to bust some ghosts in the Big Apple, this adventure is perfect for seasoned tabletop gamers and those new to RPGs. So grab your proton pack, join the team, and show the world that you ain't afraid of no ghost! 👻 Experience the ultimate "workplace comedy" set in the world of Ghostbusters. 🥽 Solve spooky mysteries with the power of friendship and nuclear accelerators. 🩻 Confront the forces of darkness, trap 'em in a box, and collect your paycheck. 🤝 Flirt with clients and stick it to “The Man” – all in the name of science.

    How to prepare

    Please have a working microphone, a reliable internet connection, and an account on Discord. Webcams are strongly encouraged, but not required. Do what you can to avoid distractions or loud noises that might disrupt the game for other players. If you prefer to use real dice, you will need a set of several D6s.

    What I provide

    I will provide digital character sheets (that can be printed), digital equipment cards (can also be printed), visual aids, some music/effects, and a link to a digital dice roller.

    Gameplay details

    In Session Zero, we'll begin by discussing the tone and type of game you'd like to play. We'll go over any safety protocols you're comfortable with (like Lines, Veils, or Aftercare) and go through character creation. After everyone is ready, we'll schedule a day and time for the official start of the game.
