We were comrades, we were family.

We were once the heroes of this galaxy. We stood against the tide of darkness and prevailed, again and again. We were comrades, we were family.

But our family fell apart. Our shared past is full of shame, trespasses, and secrets. We parted ways, vowing to never see each other again.

And now, our greatest enemy has returned. Manipulating from the shadows, they grow stronger than ever. No one else believes the threat is real. Only the CAPTAIN has a chance at defeating this enemy, once and for all.

The CAPTAIN will have to bring the crew back together again. But will they go with them into the void once more? Can the crew trust the Captain again, who left disappointment and heartbreak in their wake?

The Inspiration

ONCE MORE INTO THE VOID is inspired by the tv show Star Trek: Picard, and the video game Mass Effect 2. One of the players is a Captain who must make amends, face the consequences of the past, and try to bring back together their old crew. Reminisce about the past, fall in love, get in messy entanglements, see if you can survive the final mission! 

The Game

ONCE MORE INTO THE VOID is based on the brilliant structure of MOBILE FRAME ZERO: FIREBRANDS by Meguey and Vincent Baker. No GM, no prep, just grab a deck of cards and tokens and you're good to go!

The game is best played over 1-2 sessions. Choose from 9 mini-games to play, starting with the RECRUITMENT MONTAGE and ending with the final mission, ONCE MORE INTO THE VOID.

The mini-games are: 

  • RECRUITMENT MONTAGE - Getting the crew together
  • JUST LIKE OLD TIMES - A battle to prove ourselves
  • ONLY ONE SHOT TO MAKE IT RIGHT - A training montage
  • BLOWING OFF STEAM - A night out with the crew
  • WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE - A confrontation
  • THE LAST TIME WE TOUCHED - Possible intimacy
  • I NEVER DID TRUST YOU - Possible betrayal
  • ONLY IF WE HAVE THE TIME, CAPTAIN - Loyalty mission
  • ONCE MORE INTO THE VOID - The final mission

Oh please make this available for purchase as an addon for Roll20!

Oh! I've actually never thought about putting up something for Roll 20, I will definitely look into that ❤️👀✨ thank you so much!

The nice thing is that Roll20 has a store for folks and makes it fairly easy for people to find your game and to find people to play with online. I've just started diving into making Roll20 character sheets for a couple of friends and can report that there is quite a bunch of very nice example code and an active user community of people who are making character sheets. The html and css are fairly straightforward with only a few minor changes for dice rolling calls.

I listened as far as "Wouldn't it be great if you could play an RPG about [Star Trek: Picard]", before I simply went back to the game page and ordered it.

This feels really appropriate, I started thinking about making this game while watching the third episode of Picard and finished the game before the fifth episode came out 😭
