About the adventure

Prepare a character ready to wrestle with alien creatures and their mindbending abilities! Think specifically about how your character relates to memories, whether it’s memory loss/euphoria like Westworld or Fight Club, or the opposite, like a photographic memory or nostalgia. No matter how your character relates to memory, one thing is certain: they don’t know how they arrived in this alien domain and will do whatever it takes to get out.

Gameplay details

This game plays on themes of alien abduction and mind-flayers. We will stay away from actual horror elements and discuss personal phobias and triggers to avoid at the beginning of the session. Players can expect a fast-paced game with narrative focus on their PC’s bonds and backstories.

How will character creation work

Character Creation: - Any race/lineage, native or not. (“Mark of _____” will count as your free feat) - Point Buy - 1 Free Feat at Level 1 - Feats OK instead of A.S.I - Multiclass limit: 2 Classes - 1 rare or lower Magical Weapon/Armor/Wondrous item. If you choose something common or uncommon, you can add +1 or +2 to make it rare. - 8,600GP to spend on mundane items from the PHB or DMG (Ammunition, armor, Shield etc.) - Homebrew welcome so long it’s not overpowered, just check in with me about it

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
  • Roleplay: High
  • Puzzles: Low
  • Experience Level: Open to all
