The Long Orbit

RPG system: Apocalypse World (powered by)
Genre: Drama, Gyser, Sci-Fi
Participants: 1 GM, 4 players


✏️Rachel E.S. Walton


You are part of a modest crew aboard a space freighter, headed for a planet that’s being terraformed. You awoke from stasis at the proper time, but there’s a major storm on the planet’s surface. It’s much too dangerous to land, so you’ll be stuck in orbit for days. Which is a problem because you feel different up here and you’re seeing things…and people…you shouldn’t be seeing. Can you get it together? Is this happening to the others too? What if the greatest threat to this mission is the crew?

The Long Orbit is a story game about human connections that save or destroy us in the face of the terrifying unknown. It’s about being an adult and still not knowing what to do. It’s about dangerous choices and following your heart to disaster. And it’s about isolation, desperation, survival, love, and horrors inside and out.
