Smiorgan reviews DayTrippers Core

Over at the Department V blog, Smiorgan has written a review of the DayTrippers Core Rules. One thing that's particularly interesting about this review is the "back-to-front" technique, in which you read the book backwards, starting with character sheets and missions, eventually working your way to the front material, such as chargen and setting conceits.

Jaye Foster of 6d6 fame has written a well-thought-out and detailed review of DayTrippers - both the Core Rules book and the GameMasters Guide. Jaye is no newcomer to game design himself, and his breakdown of the game's mechanical and thematic elements is pretty spot-on. If you're curious about running a game of DayTrippers, this is a good review to give you a handle on how it all fits together.

Black Hole Run

The PCs travel to the survey station Perdurabo: a mobile space laboratory in orbit around a stellar black hole. Their mission is to perform a series of temporal resistance experiments just outside the Event Horizon – a dangerously near approach that has never been attempted.

BLACK HOLE RUN is a DayTrippers adventure module for 2-6 players. Rich in SF tropes and interstellar curiosities, this future science adventure will test your players' tactical and problem-solving skills in a dangerous and chaotic environment.

Traditional Gaming and Emergent Narrative: A Review of "Golden Age Adventures"

The mysterious Abstract Machine has written a thought-provoking review of Golden Age Adventures. It's actually more of an expository essay on the nature of shared emergent narrative under different playstyles, and how this may be approached in DayTrippers. Storygame or Trad? Or right up the middle? Season to your own tastes!

"These are tools that enable you to run the game however you like. That’s not a threat, it’s a promise."

Why DayTrippers Has No Setting

You may have noticed that DayTrippers has no Setting and no Timeline, only a handful of important companies and a list of optional Tech Advances for the GM to choose from. Admittedly, this is an unusual approach to the exposition of a campaign world.

It is typical for Players to expect something like "The History and Atlas of the Home World", but I refuse to write such a thing. I paint DT's Home-Earth only ironically, and with the slightest touch of the brush. Why? Several reasons...
