The masters have vanished…
and with them four thousand years of protection, and benevolent guidance. In the darkness that followed, the children of their Empire have fallen into chaos and ruin. Across Four thousand stars, Mankind and the other Servitor races struggle to maintain control of an empire that they’ve only ever served, using technology they barely understand.
Now, these chosen 6 have embarked upon a journey beyond the known reaches of the M’Hayar Dunn empire into an impossible segment of space called ‘The White Well’. Their mission: to find answers and possibly the hidden whereabouts of the vanished and benevolent masters.
- Space Opera / Science Fiction at its best: We can have space ships lasers, blasters, lightsabers, aliens and all manner of strange things man has never before beheld.
- Fantasy / Mysticpunk at it’s best: Yes, we can have magic, and spirits, and mythical things.
- Romance / Lovey stuff at i… you get it: Let’s be adult about this. Don’t be squeamish.
This game is Descended from the Queen, based on the For The Queen card-based storytelling game.
In it, you are travellers undertaking a journey.
You could be a group of knights off to find the Grail. You could be the ragtag crew of a scrappy little spaceship hopping across the galaxy to deliver a mysterious cargo. Or you could be a group of high school kids on a road trip.
Either way the story is in the things that happen on your journey, and, importantly, the relationships you form or grow along the way.
