A downloadable game
People are scattered all over the place, like grains of sand cast into the sea, on planets distant and unlikely. And they all want their mail.
The mail is a lifeline, a solace, a slender artery of commerce and culture. In many places the postal agent is the only regular visitor. In these out-of-the-way corners of the galaxy, the arrival of the mail is cause for celebration. The mail might be good or bad, but it is a connection to another, less lonely place. And the person who brought it is a friendly outsider who might be able to help you out with your problems…
In Space Post you and your friends will play a postal agent, and you will also play the strange, wonderful people waiting at each stop on their interstellar route. And you will also play their spaceship.
If you'd rather play a dedicated professional of the space ambulance service, check out our other game, Space Ambulance!
- Game format: Tabletop
- Players: 2-6, with four being the sweet spot. There’s no GM.
- Materials: Pencils, two six-sided dice, and printouts of this document. For character sheets, you will need one postal agent sheet, one spaceship sheet, and n-1 Plover/colonist sheets per planet, where n=the number of people playing. So for four players you need one postal agent, one spaceship, three postal employees on Plover, and nine colonist sheets.
- Time: Variable, but figure half an hour to prep and 20 minutes per planet visited. Some will be shorter, some may be longer.
- Content warnings: Space Post addresses the range of sapient experience, so anything is possible. The tone is meant to be lightly comedic, but likely topics include loneliness, alienation, and interpersonal strife.
