Alliance of the Daleks is the next installment of monthly Doctor Who Roleplaying adventures. This adventure is the next major arc for the Temporal Masters campaign first envisioned by the Alexandrian.
The Doctor and his companions are contacted after delegations of the Time Lock Accord are overdue. After travelling to the strange planet Nomdor they become integral in forming an alliance between the Great and Bountiful Human Empire and Dalek Empire.
I had a been concerned about this adventure since I first started writing the campaign. I had a vague map of what I wanted to do overall and for each adventure but Alliance of the Daleks had always been filed away as future Martin’s problem. If I recall my notes I only had one; Dalek ❤ Humans.
My greatest concern was how I would handle the first part of what would be essentially a two-parter between Alliance of the Daleks and the Genesis Extermination. The Alexandrian’s description of this leg of the campaign was ‘The Doctor proves instrumental in forging an alliance between the Human and Dalek Empires.’
I went back and re-watched The Trial of a Time Lord (surprisingly my favourite Colin Baker episodes) and the Deadly Assassin serials. These are both the episodes are effectively divided into the trial and adventuring that proves to help solve the trial aspect. I tried to emulate that within this adventure.
I also wanted for the Doctor and his companions (particularly his companions) to have some invested interest in 53rd century politics, prior to the events of The Genesis Extermination. Recently, Doctor Who has a couple of examples where he has mediated discussions between two parties but allowed the final decision to come from those parties (Day of the Doctor and Zygon Inversion). Kill the Moon was a case where Clara was a part of this discussion even though she was not a ‘local’.
