Congratulations citizen, you have been selected to be part of this exclusive group. Humanity is counting on you!
Please report to the Forum in person or by telepresence hologram for briefing at 06:00 Standard Ship Time.
Asimov Mission Oversight Program
Generation is the Oxford University RPG society live-action game for Michaelmas 2012 and Hilary 2013.
It is a near-future science fiction game set on the generation ship Asimov as it sails through the void towards its ultimate destination. As a member of the new advanced crew training programme, you will be called upon to solve critical tasks, face unknown dangers, and deal with the ambitions of your co-travellers in order to keep the mission on-course and keep humanity's last hope alive. To make your task easier, you can look forward to “assistance” from the shipboard Computer — and of course, your fellow crew members.
The setting of Generation is dark and gritty — dystopian science fiction. Inspired by the works of Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein, as well as Lord of the Flies, Alien, Portal and Red Dwarf, Generation is designed to be a rich and intimate setting highlighting characters and their relationships.
We welcome people new to roleplaying, as well as old-hands. Players are asked to become members of OURPGSoc, for which there is a small membership fee, but the game is free to play.
Game sessions run on Tuesday evenings in term-time, from 7.30pm
Character generation session: Tuesday 1st week; 9th October 2012, Pusey room, Keble College. You can submit characters and ideas to the GM team beforehand. Time permitting, there may be a small amount of roleplay.
Please get in touch with us if you have any questions! You can email the GM team at firstname.lastname@example.org
