A mysterious signal is intercepted by the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence...there are visitors from another world en route to Earth. What do they want with us? Can they be trusted? But one question looms over the rest...

How will humanity respond?

"The Earth is the cradle of humanity, but one cannot live in a cradle forever."-Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

Tales of The Cradle is a "Tales" style game, meaning that players will take on roles in individual scenes that periodically change. ToTC will be dealing with the theme of ""First Contact"", the first meetings between different civilizations and the shockwaves it can sent through society.

Players will take on the roles of researchers, government leaders, talk show hosts, and ordinary people as they react to discovering that they aren't alone in the universe.

This game contains dark themes. The players will have to make difficult decisions with potentially global impact, and subsequent scenes will examine the consequences on both large and personal scales. If you have questions about them or anything else, feel free the GM at josewieg AT gmail DOT com.

Player Communications

Scenario and character sheets will not be distributed in advance.
