OSR Supplement / Toolkit | 14+ | 2-5 Players | 4 Hours

"The coverage did not include filming the deaths of your crewmates."

In participation with ZineMonth 2024: ARKYVR is a film-documentarian toolkit for Mothership 1E where players put their lives and sanity on the line to make a movie in an alien infested kill zone. Assigned with a Shot List of footage deliverables; documentary crews will venture into dangerous locations to capture its sights, sounds, and stories. Players will choose what stories to follow and which moments to record. If an ARKYVR happens to survive their film shoot, they must decide how to distribute the footage. Some clients will pay a handsome price to cover up their dirty work while others will use it to lead a revolution.


How will you use your craft to shift the balance of power in the universe? Will you even live long enough to tell the story?

Distribution begins September 2024

"ARKYVR understood the assignment from front to back and it is the reason I finally started reading Mothership. A module so cool that it makes you pick up the core rulebook? There's no stronger recommendation than that."
