Update; We’re still relatively early into the game (the start of Act 2, Scene 1) but we’re still in need of our John Robinson
Jupiter 2 is based upon the classic Lost in Space television show https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_in_Space though, like the recent Netflix series, it’s open to reinterpretation as it pertains to the gender and ethnicity of the cast.
The story will follow the adventures of the Space Family Robinson as the first family in space, their mission a five-and-a-half-year journey to an Earthlike planet orbiting the star Alpha Centauri. They will not fulfill that mission.
The cast will consist of two parents, three children ranging in age from about 12 to 19, their pilot, a robot, and an unexpected stowaway. I will be taking on the dual role of Narrator and pilot Major Don West as I prefer to influence the story in-game as opposed to narrative directives. I also have a couple of players tabbed for both the youngest child (Will Robinson) and the robot, though that can always change due to their availability/preference for a different character, so feel free to submit a character for those roles if you’d like.
The game will follow a one-scene-a-week pace, running from Sunday through Saturday, and players will be required to either post within that week or contact me if they are unable to do so. I reserve the right, as narrator, to move characters along in the story so as to avoid any prolonged delays in play.
The game will start in about a week after this listing regardless of number of characters, as the opening scene will see active characters unexpectedly emerging from suspended animation, so any players joining the game at a later date can simply “wake up” at that time.
Lastly, I’m using the “Space” adventure game world for simplicity in setting things up, so don’t read too much into what you see in regards to locations, Characters, and challenges, as most of that will be changed (no “sneak peeks” as to what to expect in our game!) You are, however, free to use the Nature, Strength, Weakness, and Subplot cards listed, though creating original cards more in keeping with your concept of your character submission is encouraged.
