The Drain is a tense level-0 funnel adventure for the Mothership sci-fi horror RPG set in a combat-ravaged farming habitat.
Each player runs 4-5 level-0 prisoner-soldiers through the hellish battlefield of the colony ship Within Wheels. Their mission: win freedom by acquiring a legendary religious relic at the behest of their corporate jailors, PrayCo.
The Drain takes a WWI influenced war-as-hell meat grinder and mashes it with bleak, occult survival horror themes drawn from video games like Silent Hill
, Resident Evil
, and Darkwood
. This zine is packed with everything you need to churn out a crop of battle hardened level-1 characters from level-0 rabble, including:
Brand new rules for running carnage-filled funnels in Mothership.
A funnel crawl map by Andrew Walter, gorgeously illuminated to chart the party's movement through the conical space.
Vicious new items to arm your mob of funnel PCs.
Art on every spread, including illustrations from Mothership creator Sean McCoy.
Originally funded by over 1400 backers on Kickstarter, this full release brings you a host of awesome bonus content including:
Card-sized funnel character sheets (PDF), complete with 20 delightful character portraits by Evlyn Moreau for your players to fight over.
10 harrowing battlefield comms audio props to use at your table.
