|“Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.”|
Space, that final frontier, is where many dream of finding exotic places, new peoples, and a different and more exciting way of life. Unless you were from a time and place where nobody had any idea what those sparkly dots were up there, but even then I bet you wondered.
Of course, none of that prepared you for waking up one morning, not in your bed, but in a random crate smelling of pet dander and ribbon candy. Or a cramped closet with stiletto heels poking you in the back. Or, if you were really unlucky, crammed in a freezer along with somebody's ice pops. After avoiding death by embarrassing suffocation, you'll get treated to your first look at the flying junk heap that you'll now get to call home for an indeterminate amount of time.
Welcome to Outbound Flight! Your mission, according to the angry guy on the public address system, is to explore the furthest reaches of the universe and maybe found the perfect society. Armed with your wits, your skills, and the nifty involuntary tattoo you got somewhere between when you arrived and when you woke up, it's up to you to decide if you'll aid this mission of exploration or hide in your quarters making space moonshine. Maybe you'll play along for the chance to get home.. maybe you'll end up saving the universe.
Space is certainly big enough.
Outbound is a pan-fandom roleplaying game with elements of science-fiction exploration, adventure, and mystery with the occasional dash of horror and humor to spice things up. Though characters are bound to the ship, they will have ample opportunity to explore the various planets, time periods, and dimensions that the ship visits, as well as solve the very important mysteries on board surrounding where everyone is, why they are there, and what's for lunch. Characters will help shape the metaplot, and their choices will reverberate through the multiverse. Also, hey, it's space. Space is pretty cool.
