DayTrippers GameMasters Guide

Written by Tod Foley (creator of CyberSpace, Ghosts in the Machine, and Watch the World Die) the DayTrippers Gamemasters Guide blends modern and traditional gamemastering techniques with the random input of oracular systems and the spontaneously-generative approach of surrealist art. Each adventure is designed to last a single session and return the PCs back to Earth, with the pacing of a short story or television episode. The result is a fast interpretive system with its own skittery mechanics, spitting out an endless variety of psychoactive science fiction narratives.

What People Are Saying:

"It's a game for good gamers. The rules aren't hard to figure out, and even with all the crazy stuff you can stumble across, there are plenty of generators to cover your ass..."
- David Guyll, author of A Sundered World

"The generators were fantastic, and certainly some old-school writers could learn a thing or two from you with their example."
- The RPG Pundit, author of Dark Albion

"DayTrippers is so scientific and intellectually mature that I'd wholeheartedly recommend it for people smarter than me..."
- Venger Satanis, author of Alpha Blue

"Even though the book is written for the DayTrippers game, this is a book I would recommend to any GM that wants to cultivate great ideas and find useful suggestions on how to further develop their GM skills."
- Keith Mageau, RollingBoxcars.com
