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. 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.

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. As such, mature players under the age of 18 should check in with the GM prior to registering.


Player Communications
There is a questionnaire on the website at http://www.vortexofchaos.net/adrift_on_the_starry_sky/questionnaire.html. The characters are fixed, and are handed out before each scene in the story of the Alexandria and its crew.

Diewald, Jeff

I am well aware of the length of these character sheets. You are not expected to memorize every bit of dialogue. It's just that these characters refused to be brief - they all stood up and shouted at me to tell their stories in more detail. I have learned to listen to characters when they do so. If you have any complaints, please take it up with them.
