This month I present the sequel of sorts to Alliance of the Daleks and next major installment in the Temporal Masters campaign. The Genesis Extermination.
Following the events surrounding the Time Lock Accords and the negotiations Human/Dalek negotiations, the Doctor and his companions find themselves aboard the Dalek saucer ship where the Daleks demand that they save them. They have intel that the Temporal Masters plan to destroy the Daleks at their genesis, destroying their timeline. They demand that the Doctor return to Skaro and stop the abortion of the Dalek timeline. The Doctor and his companions must make a decision; save the Daleks and the alliance’s best chance of overcoming the Temporal Masters or allow them to be destroyed, purging time of the Daleks but changing it forever. The Doctor must also be wary as he is stepping into his own timeline and must affect it as little as possible.
The Genesis Extermination was originally cooked up by the Alexandrian and takes place during the events of the classic Doctor Who episode Genesis of the Daleks staring Tom Baker as the Doctor. The player characters will be adventuring within the events of this surrounding the creation of the Daleks, interacting with characters from the classic episode and rooting out the Temporal Masters. This adventure is a turning point for the campaign setting where choices made and their consequences will colour the rest of the campaign.
Research for this adventure was particularly fun, predominantly involved watching the Genesis of the Daleks serial. For inspiration I also took the time to watch classic Star Trek episodes; The Trouble with Tribbles and Trial and Tribble’ations.
For this adventure I took a slightly different approach and tried to outline the main events and characters from the original Genesis of the Daleks but also provide motivation and inspiration for the GM to integrate their player characters into the Fourth Doctors events.
As always the collected adventures from each month can be found here and be sure to leave and comments or feedback. Hope you enjoy.
