Arrive on site between 6:00 and 8:00 PM. Opening ceremonies will be at 9:00, followed immediately by game on. If you need to be late, let us know so we can make arrangements to have your role filled during that time.
The mission's success is in your hands
Calypso begins on the planet Terra Unus, an Earth analog that will allow us to explore the multinational themes of the game, while avoidings the trappings of real-world geopolitics. A small group of players will take on the roles of the Calypso Astronauts, a scientific crew sent to survey the far reaches of the Terran solar system for future resource extraction and perhaps colonization. It is our goal to create a truly “blockbuster” experience for the crew, who will live, work, eat, and sleep in the claustrophobic spaceship environment.
The whole world is watching
Supporting the Calypso will be a much larger group of players: the Mission Control. The Mission Control is made up of people from various factions and countries with their own interests, coming together in a joint effort to support the main mission. To achieve their goals, Mission Control team members will participate in abstracted games that represent the various ways in which the factions support the mission and support themselves. Think of it as one part larp, one part easy to play social board games that affect the outcomes of in-game events.
The game-wide Player's Guide can be found here. Once roles are chosen, everyone will get individual packets with additional pertinent information and rules.
