An improvised sci-fi horror tale from the crew of The Raptor! This is a bonus, one-off episode. A great place to start and see what 20 Sided Stories is all about!
You are now entering The Raptor. Starship for the Consortium, helmed by the notorious Captain Darcy, and currently at its worst. It has been two days of chaos. Members of the crew have been disappearing, and now it seems the whole ship has been taken over by a mysterious, psychic entity known only has Something Else. Most of the crew has either fled through escape pods, killed themselves, or vanished without a trace. And now it seems too that Captain Darcy is overcome by Something Else.
As far as we know there are only three surviving members left...
Jer'q Lightfighter. Saavy Envoy.
Mr. Andromeda Riddles. Android Explorer.
Cressida Vega. Alien Scientist.
All the rules for Lasers and Feelings fit on one beautifully designed page by John Harper of One Seven Design. You can check it out for yourself at One Seven Design.Com but essentially it goes like this...
If a player needs to overcome something with through action and badassery, they roll for Lasers. If the obstacle is intuitive, or an act of passion, they roll Feelings. If they roll their selected number, they get Laser Feelings, where they can ask the GM a question, and get more intel towards the situation at hand.
We join our space-farers now in the med bay with Captain Darcy's incapacitated body, where they hope to discover the origins of this... Something Else.
