About the adventure

Welcome to a new season of Uranium Chef, the most popular full-contact cooking reality teleholo show in the galaxy! Competitors from across time, space, and several more theoretical dimensions have arrived to show off their skills and compete not only for an impressive cash prize, but also for a chance to face off against the Uranium Chef itself. You're amongst those competitors. You might be a bizarre multi-limbed crab monster hoping to make a name for your new restaurant, a quasi-sapient cooking bot sponsored by a living corporation, a cosmic vampire struggling with student debt, or something weirder and more mundane yet. You're waiting in the green room, thinking about all the reasons that have brought you here, while your handlers remind you of all the things you need to do to make good TV. You've got your hopes and dreams to pursue, but also a role to play for the cameras, besides the competition itself. Beyond the green room doors the cooking arena is waiting. Monomolecular knives, sharp enough to cut even the toughest silicone meat not to mention other contestants, hover in electro-magnetic sheathes. Atomic ovens charge quietly inside lead lined shielding that barely passed the OSHA inspection. Studio lights heat the whole place to an oven in itself, preparing to bring you to a boil of drama. Nano-camera swarms circulate about to broadcast it all in glorious 6D-holograms across the galaxy. Worse, yet, the living breathing judges and audience are waiting for your arrival... as are the poor collection of human beings hidden behind the lead curtain labeled "Secret Ingredient". The stage manager nods and gives the holographic host six thumbs up. Holly Go-Light-Wave makes a show of breathing in, and steps out. The show has begun.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a microphone, a Discord account, and a Roll20 account. Those last two are free, thankfully. Watching some Iron Chef to get into the mood couldn't hurt either... or any Futurama episode with Elzar...

What I provide

I'll bring the rules, the adventure, and the shenanigans!

Gameplay details

Content Warning: Dark humor. Honestly, the game is going to be pretty wacky, but I decided to put cooking and serving humans as part of the premise, so it's going to have a certain something going on.
