The Frequency is a tabletop roleplaying game for one player and one gamemaster. It is inspired by "What's The Frequency, Kenneth?" by R.E.M. as part of the Record Collection Jam 2020 #ReCo2k20.
In this game, the Character (the pc) finds themself Here-in a world eerily similar to their Home but distinctly different-eerie, unwelcoming, and dangerous. The Character will accomplish their goals by using their physical Traits (mutations) and values/teachings from their Home, while also being tempted by the tools and traditions of the violent world at their disposal that may compromise their sense of self. The Character will cross a hexmap (created by both players during setup) attempting to perform five particular tasks all while using d10 rolls to decipher the 5 digit Frequency needed to return Home.
Players will need 2d10 of different colors or distinctions (the Home and Here dice), a notecard or character sheet, and a piece of paper upon which they'll draw a simple hex map. A sample character sheet and hex map are found on the last page of the zine.
Orders typically ship within 24-48 hours after being placed, business days only Monday - Friday. If you place an order on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday then it will not ship until the following business week.
We use USPS, UPS and DHL. Rates are based on current service rates and are subject to change.

We care about the product getting to you safe and secure.
US DOMESTIC ORDERS:
USPS Priority, UPS, and DHL
Please note that ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Shipments are sent via DHL. Shipping does not include customs fees, which are subject to each countries' tax requirement. We want you to buy with confidence but please understand that once the items leave the USA we will not be responsible for lost or damaged items unless you contact us to get additional insurance if available.
If your shipment is returned to us due to insufficient address or marked as undeliverable for any reason, we will need to collect another shipping fee in order to resend your item.
If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee.
Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible.
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-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.
