DayTrippers CORE Rules + PDF

The time is shortly after the year 2100, and the alternate realities of SlipSpace are opening for exploration in new and experimental vehicles known as SlipShips.

The bold explorers who pilot these vehicles face a multiverse of physical and psychological dangers to bring back priceless scientific knowledge and powerful artifacts from far-flung dimensions and alternate timelines.

They’re called DayTrippers — and you’re one of them.

 

About the game:

DayTrippers is a surreal reality-hopping roleplaying game set in a 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 . . .

A DayTrippers campaign is like a series of one-shots: each adventure is designed to last a single session and return the PCs back to Earth. An infinite variety of bizarre experiences can be explored, from "Dream Worlds" and "Alternate Earths" to distant planets in our universe and others. Players will visit new and wildly divergent realities every session, blurring the line between subjective and objective reality, and cranking up the weirdness to eleven.

DayTrippers uses the CORE engine, a minimalist SRD for character-driven emergent stories. D6s only · Actions are skill-based · Results are narratively interpreted · Narrative interpretation shifts between GM and Player · CharGen is progressive point-buy · Experience points offer advancements of all types · Conversion tables included for d20, PbtA and percentage-based systems · Sample characters and vehicles included. · Progressive Character Generation and LifeShaping Events make characters flexible and easy to create · Action Resolution based on "yes/no and/but" interpretions, creating a wide range of dramatic outcomes for every single roll.

    COMBINING ORDERS

    WE DO NOT HOLD ITEMS

    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 

    PRE-ORDERED ITEMS

    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
