About the adventure
The Purple Planet: Where tribes of man-beasts wage an endless war beneath a dying sun. Where mighty death worms rule the wastes, befouled winds whistle through ancient crypts, and forests of fungi flourish in the weirdling light. Where ancient technologies offer life … or a quick death. Bereft of patron, friend, or god, your survival depends on quick wits and a strong blade. Will you and your companions stand as conquerers atop this alien land? Or will you fall beneath the blast of an ink-black death ray, just another corpse left to litter the wastes of the Purple Planet? “One of the best published adventures. Ever. It fits. You need this. Harley Stroh is surely the latest to take up the banner of a race of romantic dreamers.” -Ten Foot Pole “If you love sword-and-planet you need it. Even if Dungeon Crawl Classics isn’t your role-playing system of choice, you need it. Hell, you might even need even if you like sword-and-planet and don’t intend to game, because it’s just a blast.” -Black Gate
How to prepare
A microphone will be needed, as well as a discord account. If you have physical dice you are welcome to roll them, but we will also have digital dice that you can roll in the virtual tabletop we'll be using.
What I provide
I will be bringing my rulebooks, my virtual tabletop maps, and my extensive imagination to create an immersive role-playing experience.
The Purple Planet is a strange land of fearsome beasts and mysterious ruins. The players will be exploring these lands together, and attempting to survive while doing so. That being said, occasional player character death is a very real possibility. At the end of each session we'll go over each player's "stars and wishes" A star is something that you really enjoyed about the game, and a wish is something that you want to see from future sessions. This way, each game is better than the last and everyone keeps having fun.
