Warped! - a Mutant Hexcrawl RPG - Part One Ends
« on: June 13, 2019, 11:37:53 am »

WARPED!
Mutant Hexcrawl RPG

In the year 2021, Walt Labs developed the first working cryogenic chamber. Now, anyone could freeze themselves and wake up... in the future! Fed up with your old life or running away from your past, you signed the forms and paid the sum and entered the chamber.

It worked, but all too well. You awake in the distant future, year unknown. Civilization has collapsed and you and your fellow frozen find yourself in a vast overgrown city that looks nothing like the place you walked in. Moreover, your genome is unstable! Your body is twisted with strange mutations. What secrets does this strange world hold? How will you survive?


This is a light roleplaying and hexcrawl exploration game. There's no waitlist, anyone can join at any time, and everyone starts off in the lab. To explore a new hex, just say the compass direction (ne,nw,n,se,sw,s). Players may wish to co-ordinate their exploration and work together as the city may be dangerous... others have clearly awoken from being frozen and disappeared forever.

- To join, fill out a character sheet- you pick everything except the mutation(s), which is random.
- Once we've begun in earnest, to play, describe your actions in bold. I'll do the rolling and any resolution and keep track of tallies. In return, you keep your character sheets up to date and post them when you make an action (it speeds everything up).

Feel free to ask questions on the Discord Channel.

Map
Anywhere with a ? is unexplored and explorable. The colour gives some indication of what sort of environment it looks like (but only through exploration can you determine for certain).

Looking almost perfect. Will roll up some mutations.

I think the maths isn't quite right on these two-- all four stats start at -1, then you add 7 to them (and then -1 if you have a second mutation). Typical arrays would be 0, 0, 1, 2; -1, 0, 2, 2; 0, 1, 1, 1).

TricMagic
Keiko gets two mutations (remember to remove one point from a stat for the extra mutation):

Adrenal Control
You have developed fine control over your adrenal system, with extreme reflexes and sudden bursts of energy.

Prehensile Tail
You have grown a tail (or, if you prefer, a tentacle) which you can use to grasp objects and help you climb.

Kateryna gets the following mutation:

Steam Ears You can blow hot steam out of your ears, it doesn't hurt you.

Right on that, 2 points removed from Weird. Nice stuff.

Keiko wakes up a bit muddled, and heads northwest toward school.

"School Day...."

Needless to say, not quite a school day.

In a thousand years, human evolution will be determined via machine learning instead of natural selection. And the rats descended from the initial test subjects will be the co-dominant species of earth.

Kateryna wakes up drowsy, not realizing where she is at.

“Ay блять, this isn’t Kiev. I knew I should’ve stopped at three bottles of vodka.”

She waits in the lab, searching for other people and weapons.

Nyeh. I've got three ideas, each one a variation of "child menace" but on a sliding scale from guttersnipe to gremlin.

Haven't been able to decide between the two just yet, so I wrote both of them. I prefer Tim Tam on principle but I feel like Millie provides more of a story.

Got that sheet I mentioned up. I'll be needing a pair of mutations, if you would.
