WELCOME INTERNS – an introduction to Tartarus Gate

As a volunteer on the space ship Charon you are expected to maintain the ship while the more important guests remain in Deep Sleep. Visual feeds with the lower decks have gone down. Something is moving. You’re six months’ travel from the nearest help. And you really need to impress your employer if you want to be made permanent.

Tartarus Gate: A Role-playing Game of Sci-Fi Horror is the debut issue of the Adventure Presents series. Written by Grant Howitt and Chris Taylor, the design team behind Spire, Heart, and Honey Heist, this magazine contains everything you need to play with up to seven players: pull-out rules, character sheets, maps, hand-outs, and a complete three session adventure. Just add three six-sided dice, some pencils, and some friends and you’re good to go!

One player takes on the role of Games Master (GM), and will be responsible for leading the other players through their adventure. Sounds daunting? Don’t worry – the magazine comes with a 22-page guide taking you through the entire adventure, as well as an 8 page GM’s Reference Booklet, maps and player handouts to make your job as easy as possible.

The rest of the group will be playing as interns aboard Charon, a transport ship taking cargo from Earth to the Tartarus Gate Waystation. Within the magazine are 6 player handouts with characters to choose from, each with their own unique background, set of abilities and gear. All you have to do is grab whichever character sheet appeals to you most and you are ready to start your adventure!
