Charles Durett is a freaking football hero. Along with being the son of wealthy hotel and restaurant owners, he is the star quarterback of the Summers County High School Bobcats. So it goes without saying he's a cool guy. He's got the looks, lives in a badass house with a kickass old mine on the property, and he's about to graduate and get a free ticket out of this small town. Rumors around school say he's going to throw the biggest party ever at his house, 'cause his parents are going to be out of town this weekend. And you got invited!
Hinton, a very small and close-knit town in West Virginia with a population of only about 2,000 seems like one of those towns that no one can escape from. You hear people all the time say that it's cursed, that no one can leave. People do, of course, be it for weeks or years, but they always end up coming back for some reason or other. There's not much to do there, and everyone knows everyone else.
You, the players, will be playing characters going to that after graduation party at the Durett's mansion, where you get caught up in discovering and exploring that old mine; and what you find will change your lives forever. Inside you'll find a big open area behind a boarded-up doorway, unknown to you is actually the inside of an ancient space ship which you guys will of course accidentally activate and will hurdle you all off into space.
Think of the t.v. shows Dark Matter, Farscape and Lost in Space. But, this will be player-driven with main story arcs.
As far as your characters go, you being normal humans goes without saying. You don't HAVE to be graduates from high school though. You just need a reason for being at the party if you decide to be an older or younger character. And like the show Dark Matter, you all with have a specialty. Whether you know it before the adventure starts or have to discover it is up to you.
