Wake for the Lost

Facilitator:

"We have just arrived in the Hargreaves 55 system. Mother has identified multiple... there's no other word for it. Superstructures. How did over fifty survey runs miss these. Some are as large as moons. The captain has ordered that the colonists be kept in stasis while we investigate. We request Colonial Marines support as soon as possible. We will initiate first contact protocols immediately."

It sounds impossible. A colonist ship on a routine trip to another world has found evidence of intelligent life other than humans. Sure there have been stories all across the Outer Rim colonies, but nobody believed them. Hundreds of surveyed worlds and we had all become convinced that humanity was alone in the universe.

Now you're on the USCSS Tempest, travelling on a direct route to an uncharted system. Nobody has heard from the colonists since they began to investigate the superstructures they'd found. Based on the data sent back, there is no disputing that the structures are artificial.

But nobody has heard anything more. Are they dead? Are these aliens hostile? Your team is heading to sleep for the final jump to Hargreaves 55. Who knows what awaits you when you arrive... better be prepared for anything, Marine.

"Wake for the Lost" is an action horror game that draws upon the results of the preceding "Children in the Graveyard" session. Your experience will be impacted by the decisions the previous players made. Your marines will be dealing with the fallout of that session, making for a unique adventure. Did anyone survive from the colonist ship? What did they find? Which object did they explore? Have they started an interstellar war?

Or will you be facing something so alien, you can't describe it?

Children in the Graveyard

Facilitator: 
Conan McKegg

The United Americas sent your colony ship out years ago to colonise the newly discovered exoplanet Hargreaves 55 b. Earth like, with all signs of having a breathable atmosphere open for low cost terraforming, ownership of the world was hotly contests across the national blocks of Earth.

Now you awake from your sleep to news that while you have arrived in the Hargreaves 55 system, what millions of dollars worth of astronomical equipment missed was a number of superstructures across the system. No sign of life. Some are as large as small moons.

Now your mission has changed. Work out if this is a first contact situation. Find out what these structures are for. Are they inhabited. Is Hargreaves 55 b inhabited? While the colonists remain sleeping, you, the crew, must deal with the one situation nobody prepared you for.

A Quiet Day in the Library

Facilitator: 
Jenni

The workers at a small community public library on what appeared to be an ordinary week day. Only, as they pause for another cup of tea they realise that it’s even quieter than usual. Mr Brockton hasn’t been in to read the paper, and he does that every day at 10.30 am, that young mother hasn’t brought her loud child in to play with the toys in the kid’s area…. and the news reports on the radio are a trifle concerning….
