About the adventure

The year is 10191 & the Imperium is ruled by the Padishah Emperor Shaddam the Fourth. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the spice Melange, which makes interstellar space travel possible. The spice exists on only one desolate, dry planet with vast deserts. The planet is Arrakis, also known as Dune. You are servants of House Atreides, who has just recently taken control of Arrakis from House Harkonnen. Word has reached the Duke that there are smugglers beyond the shield wall, stealing the precious spice. You will have to find these smugglers somehow, but the sands of Arrakis are full of many dangers. Most of all the dreaded Shai-Hulud, the sandworms of dune.

Additional Details

How to prepare

A discord account with quality microphone that allows for clear communication without undue background noise & a stable internet connection. Those who are operating on mobile hot spots will not be fast enough to stay connected with foundry. A PC that can meet the requirements to run Foundry Virtual Tabletop. Netbooks & chrome books I have found in the past do not meet meet these requirements.

What I provide

I will supply foundry VTT for all the players to log into, as well as all graphics, ambient music & rules for play.

Gameplay details

Wormsign is an introduction to the Dune - Adventures in the Imperium game system. In this one shot, players will take up one of six different pre-generated characters in service to House Atreides. Together, the group will investigate a group of illegal spice smugglers in the wild deserts of the planet dune. Threats will be present from all sides at the group attempts to locate them & put a stop to their illegal smuggling. This one shot will have a mix of intrigue, combat & survival as you deal with the challenges of your mission. Before the one shot starts, we will review the expected lines & veils for the playing, & go over basic system mechanics. Players will familiarize themselves with their chosen character's capabilities & role within the group.
