You've played like this before, but you've never seen rules for it.
Version 1.3 of the DayTrippers Core Rules is now available in PDF. This version includes new rules for collaborative "GM-Lite" play, as well as new information on SlipShips, Technology and Companies in the world of DayTrippers. Designed for full compatibility with the soon-to-be-released DayTrippers GameMaster Guide, this update is a vital one for all DT players.
It was bound to happen. Since mobile devices have been outselling desktops for two or three years now, it was only a matter of time before the search engines began penalizing websites that possess no mobile-friendly display method. And the first out of the gate, of course, is Google.
Starting Tuesday, Google's SE ranks will begin to favor mobile-friendly sites over non-mobile-friendly sites. If you don't have a responsive grid or alternate CSS handlers in place for smaller devices, you're gonna start dropping rank. Better get moving.
DayTrippers is an OSR-style roleplaying game set in a surrealistic near-future science-fiction multiverse, in which an assortment of colorful character classes pilot unique machines into dream worlds and pocket universes to retrieve items of value and bring them back home. The setting was inspired by the surrealistic fiction of Moebius, Moorcock, Rucker, Weinbaum, Heinlein, Vance, and other masters of weirdness.
As we approach the final release version of the DayTrippers GameMasters Guide, little mechanical bits are falling off like parts from the Serenity!
Members of the As If Collective via Patreon have been sprinkled in DayTrippers subsystems lately, from alien worldbuilding tools to narrative engineering aides and adventure worksheets.
Some of these sections will make it into the final game, in current or modified form. Some will be released to the wild, to enter the Darwinian struggle of dynamic semiotic survival. Either way, Patrons get them for free, don'tcha know.
Support the game designs and theoretical work of As If Productions. Written especially for roleplayers, GMs, game designers, artists and neophiles who are interested in experimental applications of narrative engineering.
