Masks: A New Generation


About the adventure

The year is 198X and you and your classmates have been thrown into a strange, dark adventure full of heroes, villains, and monsters. Can you survive the perils of being a costumed vigilante? Do you have what it takes to beat back the forces of darkness? And who will you ask to prom? All these questions and more will be answered in Lineage! (*Note: Lineage uses the Masks: A New Generation system written by Brendan Conway)

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players should have a rough backstory/concept in mind that is detailed enough to act as a starting point, but is fluid enough to adjust to the setting/story.

What I provide

I will be hosting the game via Zoom. Since the game is designed to be very narrative I don't think I will use maps unless specifically requested by the players.

Gameplay details

Lineage is a roleplaying heavy, rules lite (and homebrewed) system that may potentially explore violent, disturbing, or triggering situations. As such at session 0 all players will be asked to fill out a Consent in Gaming in addition to discussing with the GM what topics may or may not be difficult to broach.

How will character creation work

Character creation will take place at session 0 and will be worked on between the players and GM through either email, Start Playing Games chat, or another agreed upon form of digital communication.

Players can expect

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