About the adventure
Loosely described as a table top roleplaying game and dating sim, join up with a group of Visigoths and Mall Goths in 1996 Los Angeles! Complete with pre-fabricated character archetype sheets, you and your pals can divvy up into comically adversarial groups of Visigoths and Mall Goths who have divided the mall territories amongst yourself. This game is goofy, dramatic, and fantasy laden. It plays in a world where the Visigoths have time traveled from ancient times to take over the LA Mall and their nemeses are, of course, Mall Goths. While this game has an adversarial component to roleplay, we are still telling a communal story together and in it for the ~drama~ on a comedic and sometimes romantic level. Visigoths versus Mall Goths can be played with a standalone adventure, or as a two-six episode campaign arc. Adventures available include: Quoth the Raven: "Whatever" The Little Mx. Scare-All Pageant We Need To Torc Goat to Hell Through the Fire and Flames IRC and Aliens Visigoths versus Mall Goths was designed by Lucian Kahn. For a play-through of the game, I recommend checking out The One Shot Podcast episode featuring Visigoths versus Mall Goths!
How to prepare
A webcam and mic will be key to this game! I'll send out rules and character sheets beforehand if you'd like to see and peruse! D6 dice are all that's needed and you can even use an online roller if you don't have them on hand.
What I provide
I'll bring a robust world contained within a 1996 mall featuring multi-dimensional, diverse NPC mall employees and very goofy scenarios to find your characters in.
In the first portion of the game, we will talk lines and veils and safety mechanics, then divvy up character sheets (Visigoths: Conquerer, Charlatan, Runecaster & Mall Goths: Theatre Tech, Witch, Cyberpet), fill in the required information and get to know our characters and the mall a bit. Next, we'll establish the ability for Mall Goths and Visigoths to have a private channel to chat about loose strategy, and read the Gameplay rules aloud together (they're brief, I promise!). Then, we'll get to playing!
Safety tools used
How will character creation work
