Incoming Transmission Full Edition
Incoming Transmission is a post-apocalyptic RPG set in a distant dystopian future. Those that aren’t chosen as part of the ruling council live in squalor and filth, just trying to scrounge enough food to survive. Those that don’t pull their weight are banished from cities and made to fend for themselves.
But hidden in the air, there is hope. Amidst the propaganda and heavily edited news there is one station that speaks the truth, sending out a call to all those that wish to answer: 719 RID. DJ’d by Triple D herself, spinning the only good music and spitting real news, spreading hope amongst the hopeless.
It began at Global Game Jam 2018 and now it's ready for you to play with new content, more lore, and available in both PDF and Print To Order.
The year is 519 PT (post treaty)
Humanity hardly remembers the place they once called home. Everyone now lives in giant spaceship cities called “freights”. Each freight has an owner, and to be a freight owner is to be a very wealthy man indeed.
Life on the freights isn’t much different from life back on Earth. While technology is more advanced, people still live out their lives. They are born, they live, then they die. In the grand scheme of things, individuals don’t shape the course of history.
As humanity took to the stars, they discovered new life. Some of this new life bore a striking resemblance the humans that previously inhabited the earth. It was sentient and shared the same genes as humans, which leads scientists to believe that they are all of the same species, collectively called humanity.
Not all new life was related to humanity. Among the stars we found many new forms of life, some sentient, most not. We tried to make peace with the sentient races, though most refused us. We managed to make peace with two races: the Helions, a birdlike race with beautiful wings, and the Mycoloids, a fungal race who introduced the other races to the arcane forces.
One of the most ingenious advances in technology was the invention of the ARC in 397PT. The ARC, or Arcane Resonance Canon, is a neural system augmentation that allows the augmented person minor control over the arcane forces. With the ARC, humanity spouted a new surge of technologies, advancing everything from medicine to warfare.
