Other Borders - Standalone Edition

Other Borders
Curious about "Other Borders"? Click here to read "Five or So Questions" by Brie Sheldon!

A game of drugs, money and magic in the American southwest

There are borders everyone sees: the looming fence with its sporadic observation platforms, the tags claiming this block or that in the name of a local gang or drug cartel, and the wrought-iron fences surrounding gated communities.

There are borders that are real only in our minds, like the imaginary lines that divide country from country, or one race from another.

But in this little southwestern town, another border reveals itself to those gifted with the power to see it: the veil between the worlds. Even today, the old ways of magic are still taught; spells, curses, visions and transformations are still practiced, and opposing clans are locked in a daily battle that no policia would ever understand.

Black Hole Run - New for DayTrippers

The PCs travel to the survey station Perdurabo: a mobile space laboratory in orbit around a stellar black hole. Their mission is to perform a series of experiments just outside the Event Horizon – a dangerously near approach that has never been attempted.

BLACK HOLE RUN is a DayTrippers adventure module for 2-6 players. Rich in SF tropes and interstellar curiosities, this future science adventure will test your players' tactical and problem-solving skills in a dangerous and chaotic environment. The module pairs traditional roleplaying and problem-solving techniques with the visual mechanics of a mini-boardgame, for a unique adventure experience.
