Fate Core System



About the adventure

"Pilots! Enlist today! The Draconis Volunteer Group needs you to help defend the system's independence from the Dominion of Unity. Fly tested and reliable Blackfish fighters against the oppression of the Dominion!" If you like X-Wings, Top Gun, Battlestar Galactica and Wing Commander, this game is your cup of tea. Tachyon Squadron is all about the dramatic life of fighter pilots, in and out of the cockpit. It is also an entry level game intended to introduce and teach the rules of the Fate system, so new players are welcomed and encouraged.

How to prepare

Technical things a player will need would be a webcam and microphone & a (free) Roll20 account. Reading Fate isn't *required*, but I will point out that the rules are Pay What You Want on here:

What I provide

On the Technical side of things, I'll be bringing Zoom for robust video and sound, and Roll20 with Tachyon Squadron assets ready to go. I have a soundboard set up for sound effects, so there are bells and also whistles.

Gameplay details

Tachyon Squadron is military sci-fi, and cinematic action, so there will be some space violence and blasters and things. However, I strive to run a safe table, so we will abide by lines and veils (available in game for everyone to reference) for everyone's comfort, as well as using Script Change/X card for any surprises we may encounter. **This table is safe for everyone. No racism, sexism, ableism, or any bullying of any kind. Full stop.**

How will character creation work

We will get together for a Session Zero to talk about themes, safety & safety tools, get a feel for the world, and build characters together. I enjoy a process of collaboration with the players at my table, and Fate as a system encourages it!
