Are you between 14 and 18 years old? Do you like Space, adventures and games? Come to the Technical museum Nikola Tesla in Zagreb and test yourself in an unforgettable adventure! You will find yourself in Space, adrift in a small research vessel. Together with the other survivors you will have to devise a plan how to save yourself!
On Wednesday, June 21, at noon in the Planetarium of the Technical museum (Savska cesta 18, Zagreb) we will run a roleplaying game called The Freighter, primarily for highschool participants.
The Freighter can accomodate up to 10 players, so be sure to book in advance via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Participation is free with a valid museum ticket, and after the game you can relax in the Planetarium and enjoy the starry sky at high noon.
What kind of adventure awaits you?
You find yourself on a research vessel. You are nearing closer to a small planet in the heart of an unexplored galaxy. Your companions and you are hoping that it’s habitable and that you will be able to send a message to your overpopulated home planet that you found a new place for humanity to live. Before you had a chance to land you were discovered and fired upon by an enemy destroyer. Most of the crew is gone, and the vessel is just a wreck now.
None of the survivors has any military or command experience. What will you do? Will you try to land? Will you try to send an S.O.S. signal, risking detection by the enemy? Your lives are at stake, but so is the possible survival of humanity!
What are live action role-playing games?
They are games that happen in real space and time, live, in direct interaction with other players. In other words, as if you were on a movie set. There is no predetermined scenario, and the outcome depends solely on your actions. And no, don’t worry, no acting knowledge, skill or experience is needed. We’re just playing! If you would like to know more check our F.A.Q.
Who will run the game?
The Freighter is designed and run by members of the Terrible Creations creative collective. They have been operating together since 2014., and they have had more than a hundred game runs in Croatia and abroad.
