Mutant Year Zero on Roll20

About the adventure

In the year 2060, the Eastern bloc WARPac coalition had been heavily sanctioned by the Western powers of DELTA and they needed more oil. The United Kingdom was an easy target, and overnight the entire WARPac Army swarmed across Europe and into the UK by air and sea... invading the United Kingdom to seize the North Sea oil reserves and occupy the country. After 4 years of brutal occupation, DELTA forces from the USA helped liberate the UK and began using the islands to stockpile men, equipment, and experimental weapons of mass destruction in preparation for their European retaliation. WARPac responded with nukes and chemical weapons. This escalated into The 3N War – Nerve, Nano, Nuclear. By 2140 planet Earth is a "fallen land" decimated by 75 years of 3N warfare. But surviving the apocalypse was the easy part... Decades before the conflict, The Sigma Corporation had concealed bolt holes equipped with food, water, equipment, and weapons across the USA. Each base had a core team of highly trained specialists in cryosleep, programmed to emerge when the war was done. Their mission: rebuild civilisation and reconstruct society for the greater good. It's all about hope. The first thing you become aware of as you open your eyes is how cold you feel, and how bright the lights are...

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need a mic for the Discord channel, but we won't be on camera so no webcam required. We'll run combats and visuals through Roll20. I'd rather you don't read the rules ahead of time, it's more realistic to "feel your way along." We'll dice up your character in a private one-to-one session zero and you'll meet your teammates when the cryo chambers open. Bring your own dice for generating your character, Gameplay on Roll20 has the Mutant Year Zero system built-in.

What I provide

Roll 20 has the dice, it would be great if you find a good visual representation of your character after we've diced them up so we can create a Roll20 token for them and to help your teammates visualise your PC. All maps and combat will be on Roll20 [and the occasional hideous mutation...]

Gameplay details

The direction of this campaign is entirely driven by you the players. You awaken in a post-apocalyptic world with a mission to explore, rebuild and reunite. You have all the weapons and equipment you'll ever need, but can your sanity and hope handle the environment you find yourself in? You have 4 attributes, several skills, and superior training. We use the Mutant Year Zero rules as the unique dice make for exciting storytelling opportunities. Relax if you've ever used the system before - we'll ease you in gently. Well.... You will be exploring and mapping the world of tomorrow, getting into combat with the less friendly natives [using Roll 20 with maps and tokens], and striving to adhere to the Sigma Corporatons' mission principles. There will be moral decisions, food, water, and ammo to think about. All sessions are written up and you'll get recaps for easy reference. Expect radiation, bizarre weather, mutated creatures and the very worst of human nature. Think Damnation Alley, Mad Max, and I Am Legend.

How will character creation work

We start with a session zero where we will randomly generate a brand new character for you, take you through Sigma Corporation training, and get you into the cryo chamber full of hope and determination to make a difference. All you need is a pen and paper. Character sheets will be provided once the game starts.
