A bit darker than usual.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ky0avfevdY>Players are fleeing a stellar apocalypse that's traveling at [almost exactly the speed of their fastest ship/communication system].>They have to keep hopping ahead of it, running from system to system, warning anyone they can.

But then, a few hours after the players arrive, the apocalyptic wavefront hits and wipes the system out of existence.>Their little armada grows. They can't send word ahead, but they can split up now, trying to save more people, more worlds. They lose some time stealing an archive of all published literature between 2060 and [current year -20]. They board and steal a medical ship transporting war orphans. >At the same time, the players try to work on a true escape route. Does the wavefront feed on mass? Can they flee the galactic plane, or dive into the wavefront and emerge unscathed, or cancel it with some other galaxy-shattering pulse? Is there any hope, or are they prolonging the inevitable?

>>50940452>It would be great if the first half of the first session (or more) is totally banal, ordinary space opera adventures: docking fees, cargo, banter, sexual tension, a lost item of middling worth. And then a very badly damaged alien vessel drops out of FTL and accidentally hits something near the PCs, damaging the ship beyond repair. The PCs are in a position to assist.An alien grabs the nearest PC, and jams a message straight into their brain. Run. Run, tell those you can to run, and don't look back. You don't have much time. We have made a terrible mistake.
>>50940559What if the PCs don't take the initial bait of helping the ship? Or believe the alien mind message? ...Oh shit, what if the smallest fraction of the front of a ship makes it out of warp and plops into a system, and instead of the last few survivors issuing a distress call, they urgently begin offering an extreme amount of money to just get them away from the galactic core? Weeping and screaming into the system communications grid, "GET US OUT!"
>>50940902That works too.The trick is to make the players believe that, by acting quickly and competently, they are outsmarting you. If you give the vaguest impression that you're /expecting/ them to bicker, delay, and fight, they will. Give them just enough vagueness that they think they're solving a mystery when they figure out "oh shit, apocalyptic death wave, we need to run," and reward them for being clever and figuring it out quickly.But no matter what happens, just before they jump, you give them a hint that whatever's following is right behind them.The alien message should be suitable obscure but also threatening. >"A wave of pure white flame, rippling like the surface of the sun. The light blinds you. Space itself seem to burn. Planets melting like candles. Stars bursting like soap bubbles.>It tells you to run. Run as fast as you can, as far as you can. You don't have much time.>It is sorry."The alien vessel might be undamanged, but it could emerge from jumpspace right in the middle of a station or something, and end up mangled that way. Hyper-advanced tech fused with raw metal and ceramics. Sparks and fumes and darkness. Play up the "explore the creepy alien horror movie ship" aspect for just a bit, to give the players a red herring. The alien ship might also start transmitting a radio beacon outlining a vector - your escape vector - to anyone nearby.

>>50941762Just watched that. Isn't that just a bit too deadly? There's no way away from that. Unless, I suppose, the new physics inside of the quantum vacuum sphere somehow work similarly to the outside. What if the PCs are in a universe where soft science fiction isn't fantasy, but real? Quasi-magical warp drives, antigravity, FTL communications, time travel, etc. But then, inside the QV Sphere, they've fallen into our universe. FTL drives fail to operate, spacecraft based off using antigravity literally begin falling apart, all that good stuff. And slowly, a fact dawns on the players that they are used to not even thinking about. They're 12 light years from the nearest star.

Rolled 12, 15, 10, 20, 2 = 59 (5d20)>>50939540Sure let's do it
>>50943591Actually, vaccum decay is less deadly (temporarily) in a FTL setting. It only travels at the speed of light. You can just hop ahead, build a civilization, and then move later.There's an excellent book about this subject https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schild's_Ladder
>>50944822But what if it spreads like a terrifying plague? The way I understood that video, any quantum vacuum decay reaction could be spread. If a ship was just barely tapped by the QV Sphere before it jumped out of the system, it's still beginning to transition to the lower state. As soon as it arrives in the next system, the ship is consumed and another QV Sphere forms. It could even go FTL if, for instance, some experiment went wrong or something.
>>50945048That could happen... but the conversion is generally expected to be very, very, very energetic and proceed at the speed of light or very near to it. So if there's a transition near you, you wouldn't even have time to blink in fear before it's got you. And if it contaminates part of your ship, that part is going to almost instantly turn into a huge explosion subatomic particles and light. It's not something you can transport.
>>50945270So let's abandon my plague-carrier idea. Instead, what about the Alcubierre warp drive being combined with the QV transition?To clarify, a drive which bends space around the ship, causing the space which the ship occupies to go faster than the speed of light, while the ship itself travels through that space at a normal rate.Say some lone ship, just by happenstance, has managed to engage its Alcubierre style warp drive just as one particle began its quantum vacuum decay in the same chunk of space as the ship is bringing with it during warp. What I imagine that resulting in is an FTL "chunk" of space bolting through the galaxy, leaving in its wake streams of particles undergoing quantum vacuum decay that managed to get out of that "chunk". Those particles then set off a chain reaction. The only thing saving those few who manage to escape the death wave is the ship didn't have time to get up to top speed.
>>50945716Again, you're missing out on the speed of the transition. It's very, very fast. You don't even know it's happening because it propagates at the speed of information, or very close to it.The Alcubierre drive sort of brings space with you - it's literally folded space. So if one part is undergoing decay, the entire bubble is... and you're in that bubble. Good luck. And you can't have a "particle" of vaccum decay. It's a change in the property of the fabric, not of the stuff on the fabric.Basically, this stuff propagates but is not contagious. You can create more propagation zones, but you can't pick up a piece and move it.
>>50945774Well, shit. Alrighty then, back to our regularly scheduled thread.
>>50945813Yup. Hooray.Quantum Vacuum stuff is pretty popular these days as a "real life" blow up everything button. It's very speculative though and people tend to get the details wrong. It's also more suitable for a hard sci-fi game than space opera.

The super weapon flagship of the most warlike species has been "stolen" which would be practically impossible to pull off without an entire armada behind it from other advanced civilizations. The species is using this as an excuse to stir some shit. The Big Space Alliance calls them out on their bullshit because they are lying, but the Angry Aliens Alliance goes "nuh-uh, it ain't there". Both are right and wrong. Go find the flagship with your special exploration ship or the political slap fighting turns into the part in Babylon 5 where the Vorlons go on a planetary killing spree.
