In the freezing waters of the mid-Atlantic, the survivors from the SS Naronic await their fate. Despite being less than a year old, their vessel has sunk in mysterious circumstances. Most of its cargo is at the bottom of the ocean and the occupants of its lifeboats have little hope of lasting the night.
The survivors will be rescued, but by a vessel thought destroyed and a Captain believed dead. The legend who claims to be 'no man' has saved them for now, but has set course for an erupting volcano.
Sped beneath the sea in a marvel of engineering, the SS Naronic's passengers and crew will find themselves in an extraordinary adventure that takes them to an outpost of a vanished civilisation... and perhaps beyond.
Survivors of the Naronic is a rip-roaring game of Victorian adventure and intrigue set in a universe slightly more interesting than our own. The game is inspired by the works of Jules Verne, Maurice Leblanc and others.
In our more mundane world, the Naronic was carrying a crew of cattlemen. In this reality, however, its passengers are European and American luminaries: Scientists; Celebrities; Scoundrels and Heroes. All have their own secrets and agendas. There will be Bartitsu.
Warning: If it isn't raining, a small part of the game will take place outside (yes, in November). We also hope to use bright lights, projection and a smoke machine (outdoors) at certain points. None of this is likely to impair players with breathing issues or at risk of epilepsy, but please do let a GM know if you have any concerns at all on this front.
... is hoping to successfully miss the deadline for Bios.
Oops.... 30th September, you say?
