What is Thorium?

Thorium is a platform for running live-action role-play starship bridge simulations. Participants are given roles on the ship, like weapons officer, navigator, or captain. Each role comes with its own computer station and responsibilities. The crew uses the Thorium controls to direct the ship wherever they want in their space mission. A flight director sits behind the scenes to act as a game master, controling what happens inside the simulation.

Thorium now offers personal support on a non-contract basis. Need a bug squashed? Need a special feature completed yesterday?

Mission Timelines

Not comfortable running the mission by yourself? Thorium comes bundled with pre-written missions that remove the endless button clicking and lets you focus on what matters - telling a great story. It also features a built-in mission editor, allowing you to write your own missions.

Open Source

Do you sling divs? Got code chops? All of the code is available, so you can see how it works under the hood and even add your own features. Check it out!

Multi-Platform

Thorium Server works on Windows, macOS, Linux, and the controls work with anything that runs a modern web browser. They'll even operate on a electrical switch panel! And, since Thorium is built with Web technologies, your client computers can be anything that runs a modern web browser.
