Description

A tribe of kickass stone age people attempts to cross the brutal and unforgivingly arid Kitara Desert on a journey towards an unknown future and their dream of a life in safety.

Preview

It is late morning in the desert, only twelve of us are left in the tribe, running frantically across the endless sand. Giant flesh-eating beetles scurry over the dunes, hot on our heels.

My lungs are on fire from running, and I can tell that Biju is also struggling to keep up the pace. Our Spear Warrior’s leg hasn’t fully healed from the bloody wound she took during the escape from the Yellow King’s inhuman hordes, back on our native green plains.

I see Biju come to a halt. The sun, thirst, and sand has worn her down, but that is not why she stops. She brings out her bone-spear, and with an ancient battle-cry she turns to face the leading monster.

Lotti, playing Biju, picks up a handful of blue and red dice and prepares to throw them. If she makes the roll, we will escape the giant beetles. If not, a player character will die.

I think she took too many dice for this roll. Because the blues are our water, and the reds our blood, and once they are spend the whole tribe will die. No one survives the desert without water and blood.

Player type

Do you like intense stone age action with dice rolls, a high death-rate and interchangeable player characters in a somewhat sad story frame? Then, Desert Crossing is for you.

Game Master type

If you can paint an action-packed scene through words, keep track of a simple dice mechanic for resource management and still maintain a brisk pace, I sincerely hope you will gamemaster Desert Crossing.

En stamme kickass stenalderfolk forsøger at forcere Kitaras brutale og ubarmhjertige golde ørken på rejse mod en ukendt fremtid og drømmen om et liv i tryghed.

Foromtale

Det er formiddag i ørkenen, vi er 12 tilbage i stammen og på flugt gennem sandmasserne. En kødædende kæmpebille bevæger sig hurtigt over sandbankerne i dens jagt på os.
Mine lunger brænder af at løbe, og jeg ser at Biju også kæmper med at holde farten. Vores spydkæmpers ben er ikke helet ordentligt efter et blodigt sår under flugten fra Den Gule Konges umenneskelige horder på vores hjemlige grønne stepper.
Jeg ser Biju stoppe op. Solen, tørsten og sandet har slebet hende ned, men det er ikke derfor hun stopper. Hun tager sit benspyd frem, og med et urgammelt kampskrig vender hun sig imod det forreste monster.
Lotte, der spiller Biju, tager en håndfuld blå og røde terninger og gør sig klar til kaste dem. Hvis hun klarer slaget, undslipper vi kæmpebillerne. Hvis hun ikke gør, er der en spilperson som dør.
Jeg synes, at hun har taget for mange terninger denne gang. For de blå er vores vand, og de røde er vores blod, og når de er brugt, dør hele stammen. Ingen overlever uden vand og blod.

Spillertype

Synes du hæsblæsende stenalder-action med terningeslag, høj dødelighed og udskiftelige spilpersoner sat i en halv-trist rammefortælling er sagen? Så er Ørkenvandring noget for dig.

Spilledertype

Kan du male en actionpakket scene med ord, holde styr på en simpel ressource-terninge mekanik og stadigvæk holde et ok tempo, så håber jeg mega meget at du vil køre Ørkenvandring.
