DayTrippers - Surreal Science Fiction Roleplaying
"In some sun-bleached barn outside Sacramento, CA circa 2099, a group of physicists, shady g-men, grad-students, tourists and an array of amateur explorers and nü-gonzo-revivalist writer-dudes gather around a collection of strange vehicles that resemble lunar landers. Each is painted a garish colour and prepped to "slip" into a crazy new plane of existence."
DayTrippers is an OSR-style roleplaying game set in a surrealistic 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 and other masters of weirdness. All Core Rules are included in this volume.
