"A solarpunk Shadow of the Colossus in which you heal, rather than kill, the colossi." - vagrant ludology

Explore landscapes. Collect stories. Repair machines.

Your team travels the landscape repairing renewable energy harvesters in a post-capitalist world. The world is still healing from the ravages of climate change, but every day looks a little bit better. As you wander you will encounter the inhabitants of this world working to rebuild, remake, and transform the old world into something new. Collect their stories and build the narrative of this new world.

In this one-page narrative role-playing game the primary mechanic is asking and answering questions. Explore a post-climate change world of your own creation with friends or as a solo adventure. Describe how the world heals, stays the same, or is injured anew. Explore uplifting options or just keep your head down and move on to the next job. This game is also suitable for worldbuilding a location and community for sustained play with other TTRPG systems.

The download includes: Prompt and setting, description of game, questions to encourage exploration, and six tables to randomly generate encounters.

I love worldbuilding games and this is great for putting together a solarpunk setting in a short time with a plot hook to get started. I wonder if one could also make it as a journaling game?

Thank you for your kind words! It could very easily be adapted for a journaling game by addressing the questions to yourself. If you end up playing this way let us know how it goes!
