Adrift on a Starry Sky

Description

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.

Adrift on the Starry Sky is a serious scene game with science fiction themes for seven players. 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.

Adrift on the Starry Sky was designed and written in just over 24 hours, at the 2016 New England LARP Conference (NELCO), by Jeff Diewald, Tim Lasko, Theresa Sullivan, and Gaylord Tang.
