A downloadable tarot-based RPG
You, the player, are a martian in hiding. Aliens used to openly live among us, but now Earth has turned its back on the stars. Most deny that aliens exist because that is what T.H.E.Y. (the secret organization behind the corrupt conspiracies that run the world) want you to think. There are still those who hunt your kind so you must use your powers in secret and use makeup or masks to hide any strange anatomy you may have. The investigators of the Martian Muckraker try to convince people that aliens are real . . . and that they can be our friends, while exposing Earthling conspiracy after conspiracy.
Most say their work is just gonzo journalism. Nonetheless, these determined martian muckrakers seek to uncover the truth, hoping one day the truth about themselves can be shared openly.
These are the Chronicles of the 👽 Martian Muckraker 👽 The Last Honest Newspaper in the Milky-way!
Why Play Martian Muckraker
- High narrative and rules light
- Emphasis on Character driven storytelling
- Rules easily adaptable for other genres
Hello! I am working on the Muckraker System, and it's flagship game, Martian Muckraker. The idea is to make an RPG system where archtypal cards drive the direction of the story. Originally tarot cards were used, but am phasing these out of the system in favor of cards more clearly connected to the sci-fi theme.
