Legends of Tabletop AP 1 - "Dream Job"

On March 12th 2017, Tod Foley ran a game of DayTrippers for the Legends of Tabletop crew. In this 3+ hour game, characters played by John Haremza, Vincent LaRosa and Jesse Pyne entered one of our strangest scenarios yet: an unstable Dream World that reaches into your head and toys with your emotions. Talking book people, sexy flowers, and a giant baby were found. Much freaking out and a little bit of involuntary urination was involved. Here's the video...

Review of DayTrippers by Jaye Foster

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.

As you may know, I don't do Kickstarters (because it feels like holding my work for ransom), but that doesn't mean I don't need your help. Crowdfunding via Patreon allows everyone to get involved in producing more of what we love. So now you can help immanentize the incursion of tomorrow's hoary multiverse into our own bubble reality by contributing directly to the development of the DayTrippers line.

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.

Mark Knights reviews "Golden Age Adventures"

Mark Knights of Games-Onboard.com has reviewed DayTrippers Golden Age Adventures (which is now available in PDF format at the aforementioned Games-Onboard.com).

I can’t recommend this book any more highly. if you run DayTrippers, brilliant! If you do not but you do run a sci-fi exploration game – get it. Get it now.

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...
