What is ACP?

A Complicated Profession is an ENNIE-nominated, light-hearted sci-fi TTRPG for 3 to 5 players. It's a one-shot that usually last a few sessions.

 Instead of having a traditional GM, everyone plays as their own crew member (or sometimes a passenger!), taking turns to choose events and be the lead player.

Everyone starts with two player sheets - their old hunter role and their new host role. Players gradually leave behind their past life as they play, giving up their old name, possessions and skills.

Every game is unique due to:

  • a choice of 8 hunter roles and 8 host roles (64 combinations!)
  • a menu of 9 themed event playbooks, playable in any order
  • player-created ship assets that your team are rewarded for using
  • randomly generated contracts and passengers

During events, players answer prompt questions and build on each other's stories to find solutions to the problems they'll face in their new career.  At the end of a contract, someone roleplays as a passenger to judge the crew!

By the end of the game, most players become experienced hosts, with a different set of skills and a nickname that reflects their new career.
