Batteries Low, Getting Dark Sci-Fi RPG Adventure Up On Kickstarter

Stranded on an alien world. Night is fast approaching. And the batteries for our systems are starting to run low. That's the scenario players find themselves in when they play Batteries Low, Getting Dark, a new sci-fi RPG adventure up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Batteries Low, Getting Dark - A Post-apocalyptic Adventure

A low- to mid-level adventure for your favorite post-apocalyptic setting.

The Adventure: 

While traveling along an old, westbound trail, characters notice a mysterious petrified forest within sight of their latest campsite. Upon investigating, they discover a pre-war manufacturing plant amidst the tall, stone-skinned trees. Lying hidden in the forest, the facility seems to be relatively untouched since the great wars. If the characters can find a way in, they are sure to find vast, untold resources within...

The Project:

This adventure was play-tested at the North Texas RPG Con in 2019 using the first edition of the Gamma World system. The stat blocks of Batteries Low, Getting Dark will be suitable for the play-tested system, or can easily be modified for other systems of similar genres. 

100% of the adventure is written. All maps and art have been completed. At the time of project launch, the work is midway through editing. My hope is that before the project ends, the book will be in or through layout.

The B&W, digest-sized, perfect bound book will be between 32 and 40 pages in length. The adventure features 40 plus encounter areas in total.

Unlike other adventures written by ThrowiGames for this genre, the book's layout will be built around the custom artwork of several artists. Each piece is at least half a page in size, and has been created exclusively for this adventure.

The campaign's close to 3x funded with 6 days left to go.
