About the adventure

CHARIOT OF THE GODS: Dropping out of FTL and awakening from hypersleep, the space trucker crew of the Montero discover that their craft has been re-routed from its designated cargo-run to investigate a distress signal coming from a ship that has been missing for over 75 years. This is a three act cinematic scenario which is RP-focused with smatterings of swift and lethal combat using the Year Zero D6 game system. Rules and game mechanics will be explained as we go, so don't worry if you've never played Alien RPG before. TOUCHSTONES: Alien film franchise, The Expanse, The Thing, The Last of Us.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need Discord for voice chat and sharing of game materials, and a free account with Forge-VTT.com in order to access Foundry VTT. Foundry usually plays best with Chrome or Edge browsers. You will need a decent mic and headphones, ideally. Discord offers push-to-talk mode if you can't help the background noise near you. Once added to the Discord server, you'll have access to the player materials - we'll address the specific rules as and when required, and a link to the game will be shared.

What I provide

I often use custom made maps & tokens, and will provide materials for Character inspiration and creation as well as lore for the settings, as appropriate. Foundry VTT offers some fun features - maps, 3D dice, visual effects, and there'll be the usual ambient sounds and music to set the mood, which will hopefully make the experience more immersive for all.

Gameplay details

Breaks: There will be a 10-15 minute break at a suitable mid-way point of the session. X Card: There is an X Card tool in Foundry - it can be used if a player is uncomfortable with the content happening in-game. If used, the group can change, rewind, or skip the content. Stars & Wishes: At the session end we'll share favourite moments of the game, and you can provide constructive feedback.

How will character creation work

Player Characters are, like W-Y colony, Shake-n-Bake ready made with personalities, goals, flaws, and equipment, so you won't need to learn how to create one from scratch. If PC death occurs you can take over one of the "friendly" NPCs.
