Description

"The Earth is the cradle of humanity, but one cannot live in a cradle forever."-Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

Tales of The Cradle is a "Tales" style game, meaning that players will take on roles in individual scenes that periodically change. ToTC will be dealing with the theme of ""First Contact"", the first meetings between different civilizations and the shockwaves it can sent through society.

Players will take on the roles of researchers, government leaders, talk show hosts, and ordinary people as they react to discovering that they aren't alone in the universe.

This game contains dark themes. The players will have to make difficult decisions with potentially global impact, and subsequent scenes will examine the consequences on both large and personal scales.
