Create an episode from a mid-60s sci-fi TV series that never was! With DramaSystem, players collectively improvise a compelling story of emotional need and conflict within a tightly-knit group of people. In this session inspired by the 1975 movie Escape to Witch Mountain, you play castaways from a doomed planet seeking safety and a new home in small-town central California. You must struggle to adjust as a community to this new world, find your fellow castaways, and keep your true nature a secret from your human neighbors. The game includes collaborative character generation and setting development, but the GM will provide role-based character templates such as Captain, Elder, Teenager, Comic Relief, and Criminal.
