Written throughout as an in-game corporate document, the zine takes the core game’s rules and builds a procedure for playing single handedly. It is a 36 page survival horror adventure, short story and universal solo toolkit all wrapped up into one.The adventure casts the player in the role of a lamplighter hired by the HAZMOS service corporation. Their job? Enter an abandoned underwater tunnel on an uninhabited planet alone and restore power and light to each section. As they proceed, the player will discover that things aren’t quite what they seem.This is an experiment in tabletop adventure design, requiring a healthy amount of interpretation from the player (a digital example play document is also provided).

Featuring weird motorik sci-fi dungeon music by @GusBeforeChrist and a bonus setting module by me.
Honestly this soundtrack rules. Grab it for your regular #mothershiprpg game pic.twitter.com/269bNLnlvy

I got such awesome Thousand Empty Light play notes back from @ChrisAiriau during testing that I adapted them into a mini illustrated actual play!— Alfred Valley (@ValleyOfAlfred) October 26, 2022

There are a lot of drawings that I did of the adventure we had, but here are some! I may string them all up together into a comic or Twitter thread!#ttrpg #art #mothership pic.twitter.com/ZEc8nYWyxH
Here's some of the rest! It was really fun and we'll hopefully be continuing to continue next week! The oracles are fantastic and the entire product screams quality. pic.twitter.com/fMhNHNCfuA— Brandon Yu (@Chaoclypse) October 29, 2022
