About the adventure

NOTE: The listed one-shots are part of a greater campaign! New players can join these sessions via the following listing: https://startplaying.games/adventure/cluwavtf8001o08l507he2ovu ========== Travel the stars. See the galaxy, and spread the wings of liberty across it. Take a stand for justice. For freedom. For Democracy! Prove to yourself you have the strength and the courage to be free! Become who you were meant to be. Become... a Helldropper! ========== Part of an experimental unit, you and the "Elite" Helldroppers like you have been hand-picked for your loyalty, total devotion to democracy, and willingness to give your body and soul for the cause. You will take on all orders, you will spread liberty and democracy across the stars, and new technologies liberated by our scientists will ensure you always return to your Super Stealth Destroyer, no matter what. ========== NOTE: This posting is to join the overall Campaign and gain access to the Discord server and channels. There is no weekly cost to join or remain on the Discord server and participate in role-play or interact with other players, but active sessions are $25, and joined individually via their corresponding listings. Due to the nature of the game, players can drop in and out easily and at will. One player might join weekly, while another attends every month or so! The process is opt-in, meaning you (as a player) sign up for specific sessions as desired, which will generally be limited to 3 to 6 players. This affords players the character development and advancement of a running campaign without having to commit to specific sessions and times.

How to prepare

You can join the campaign at the following link to gain access to these sessions: https://startplaying.games/adventure/cluwavtf8001o08l507he2ovu Requirements • A decent mic and headset in a quiet environment. Others should not hear their own voice reverb through your mic. If your mic picks up echos or background noise, use push-to-talk settings or mute when not speaking • A Discord account • A Roll20 account. Note that Roll20 works better on a computer than a mobile device, though mobile does have some functionality Additional • Webcams are welcome if desired but are not required NOTE: I do not personally use a live-action camera when webcams are enabled, but rather an animated avatar that mimics my expressions and movement

What I provide

• A Discord server with voice and text channels specific to the game, where players can interact and role-play between sessions, join or spectate active sessions, and even find others to Dive with in the videogame itself • A Roll20 campaign to provide visuals and music, and facilitate play with character sheet access and dice rolls • An active imagination and engaging descriptions • Documentation and/or details for any house custom rules in play • MANAGED DEMOCRACY

Gameplay details

The following is a break from character; defenders of liberty, take off your RP hats when reading! Helldivers/Helldroppers is a satirical setting where the characters serve and fight for a fascist, jingoistic government. It's meant to be funny, and it's meant to be lighthearted. Typically dark themes are treated in a comedic light, and that's part of the point! That said, there are a few rules to ensure players are comfortable, and to ensure the game remains fun and satirical. GM Lines • No sexual assault, real or implied. • No real-world politics, political discussion, or comparisons. We're not here to point fingers at or compare the game to real-world situations, governments, corruptions, or any of that. We are here to play a game GM Veils • Sexual content of any type is greyed out and glossed over. If two Helldivers role-play that they're in a relationship (and have, of course, filled out their C-01 forms), no one needs to know any details beyond the satire of the situation. Sessions will generally include a 10 to 15 minute break midway through for bio needs or otherwise. If no break has been called by the half-way point, feel free to ask! It's okay if we need to interrupt a scene. ========== This game uses a modified version of HELLDROPPERS (a Helldivers 2 inspired TTRPG), mixed with Stars Without Number (a science-fiction TTRPG). Combat and equipment will heavily take from HELLDROPPERS, while skill checks and character design will borrow heavily from SWN. Specifics on how these two systems are meshed together are available on the Discord server.
