"Often she felt as though she had been picked up and turned about like a kaleidoscope, that all her complacent assumptions had been shaken up and reassembled in a different order." (Judith Lennox)

Adrift on the Starry Sky

A military coup has taken control of The United Earth Concord, the government for the Earth and the few thousands on outposts and stations elsewhere in the Solar System. Those of you onboard the Alexandria are declared enemies of the planet, some more by accident and circumstance than design. Less than fully prepared, with a limited company and tight resources, you must flee on a barely faster-than- light life raft across space, to find a suitable planet to create a new Earth.

Adrift on the Starry Sky is a serious scene game with science fiction themes for six players, lasting four hours. The game follows a single storyline, with breaks in time between each scene. This is a LARP that explores what it means to be human, the limits of endurance, and the human will. As a result of generation ship-style technology, characters will change as they progress through several scenes. Some characters will die during the voyage; those players will be given new characters born along the way.

A note from Tony. I'm running this game because it was the most fun game I played at Intercon this year, and every player seemed to really enjoy it.

CONTENT WARNING: This LARP deals with difficult choices, loss and rebirth, mental illness, physical limits, pregnancy, racism, societal failure, strong family themes, same-sex relationships, termination of pregnancy, and violent death of a parent.
