We return! Fresh from our summer holidays, the 6d6 Think Tank is thinking about micro-adventures. How small can you make a setting and it still provide enough inspiration and information to make a good game?
Here’s some notes on one of the ideas:
Jaye – Sector Tango-2-Whiskey
Set-up: Scout Ship Bluebird-19 has been sent to reconnoiter the rings of a gas giant.
Character Objective: Scanning and Reporting
Location: The as yet unnamed gas giant has a deep green colour to it. The surfaces of it’s many large moon have a greenish tinge from the reflected light. Space is cold and black. The interior of the scout ship barely has enough room for its three person crew.
Set Dressing: Several warning lights indicate micro-meteorites, high gravity wells and components needing maintenance. The star is bright and blue.
Cast: A crew of three.
- Appearance: Disheveled. Creased. Slumped.
- Backstory: Was a hot shot fighter pilot. Then got busted to recon duty for screwing up.
- Personal Objective: A chance to fly dangerously
- Appearance: Elegant. Precise. Twitchy.
- Backstory: Sent out on recon to get experience working with non-engineers. Likes things in their proper place.
- Personal Objective: Keep the ship running, get home safely.
- Appearance: Regulation, Ugly, Argumentative
- Backstory: Does a thorough job buts takes far too long to do it.
- Personal Objective: Scan everything.
