About the adventure

We all want control over our stories and now you will! You Awaken In A Strange Place is a perfect way for four players to have the dynamic one-shot of their dreams. We will set the stage together building the the world and the characters collectively. You will quickly find yourself lost in a world of your own imagination as we all come together to answer the question: why are we here? Together lets build something absolutely specific to all of us, something that only exists tonight, something we won't ever forget. For those of you unfamiliar with how I run games, here are some reviews from those that have played with me before: +"Jacob will shift his pre-planned reasons just to fit whatever your characters would do, and fit it in the story like you're casually putting butter on bread in the morning for breakfast!" +"Gosh darn it, get in a game this person runs. I'm just a little blown away at the cool vibes, great knowledge of system, hands-on but not overbearing GMing style, just wow, a great experience." +"Jacob is great! He is the very definition of a "yes and" DM which, as a player, is a dream! The gaming style is very chill, he is always prepared and provides a fun/safe environment for players of all levels!"

Additional Details

How to prepare

The game will be done over Discord so a functioning internet connection, computer and microphone/headset is highly recommended if not absolutely necessary. Dice can be done either digitally or using your own physical dice.

What I provide

I will bring over fifteen years of improv theatre experience, a decade of running ttrpgs and a love for helping players be the most creative they can be.

Gameplay details

This game is incredibly creative and free form. As such, it becomes incredibly hard to specify what will be featured in the game which means safety will be taken incredibly seriously at the top. We will first fill out the Monte Cook RPG Consent Checklist. From there, we will use a variation of the X, N, and O Cards called Yellow/Red Cards and an Open Door Policy while we play. Finally the game will feature a regular scheduled mid-game break to aid with pacing and avoid bleed.

How will character creation work

Character creation is a part of the game so we will do it altogether. I would highly recommend looking at the free form rules before we begin to get a sense of what that will look like. However it will be a collective activity we do together!
