Mothership is a sci-fi RPG with minimum rules and a familiar theme,
Character creation is super fast, which tells you how long characters tend to last. I’ve created a scenario where all characters start separated so anyone can join at any point. So with no further hesitation…
You are aware of an ache, a dull pain near your right temple, a repetitive throbbing.
You blink and come to a realisation. It is the master alarm. Something is very wrong.
Struggling to move, you knock your elbow on the curved shield of your cryopod, but you cannot free yourself.
After what seems like an age the automatic systems recognise you are awake and disengage the seals, allowing you to awkwardly pull yourself upwards until you stand in an unfamiliar compartment.
This is definitely not part of your reclamation vessel, The Starbeast.
What is going on?
(Character sheet below, each person will awaken in an identical, empty room, whilst wearing very small underwear.)
Your first task is to Roll 6d10 for each of strength, speed, intellect and combat.
Then pick your class, Android, Scientist and Marine are as you expect, Teamster is your typical starship crew person…
You will then be half way through character creation.
