Preview the TGA Kickstarter 5e Sci-fi Adventure--The Scourge of Shiran, set in the World of Alessia!


Synopsis: Kulg needs your help!


The great city of Kulg in Northern Shiran is deeply concerned about anomalous data readings from survey and surveillance robots connected to recent abnormal geological activity. Representatives of the ruling class of Kulg are particularly concerned about the health of the planetary ley lines that flow beneath the city and power its multitude of magi-tech devices and facilities. Representatives of multiple important factions have summoned the adventurers together to travel north into The Vastness to investigate the source of the anomalies and to report back their findings.


This expedition party must navigate its way to the epicenter of the geological disturbances and discover the cause, all the while contending with the extreme dangers inherent in the frozen tundra. Between the recent deadly Shard Storms, the elusive and dangerous Living Ice, increased activity by the rebellious drifter & dasher pilots known as the Frigid Flyers, the party has its work cut out for them. There have also been recent reports of mass migrations of Illk northward, as well as aberrant behavior witnessed within the member of their herds.


The adventurers must expect the unexpected while they seek causes to mysterious happenings in a region that few survive, and even fewer understand. What will happen, what will they find, and what does it all mean?


All participants will receive an introductory primer with info on Shiran and its people, places and magics before the game begins.

Notes

Participants will need access to a laptop, desktop, or tablet computer and a high-speed internet connection. Participants will need a microphone for use with Discord, and a video camera is a nice addition. Most laptops and tablet computers come equipped with all that you need. We find that a set of headphones might also be nice to isolate the sounds coming from the computer, but are not necessary.


SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE — contact us for info on special need-based rates and possible scholarships!

Loved:

My son very much enjoys the campaigns.

Improvements:

The online format is less engaging - my son does other stuff on screens in between turns. The fact that the dates of the class are not always set (sometimes sessions are canceled with very short notice) is frustrating, especially given the expense.
