Dead Planet

A survival horror scifi ttrpg for James D'Amato's Ultimate MicroRPG Book

The Ultimate Micro-RPG Book is a collection of 40 micro RPGs by different authors, all fittin on one double sided page. My contribution to this project was Dead Planet, the culmination of several years of trying to make a ttrpg with a crafting system as a central mechanic, inspired by The Martian by Andy Weir. Having played with trying to centralise crafting over multiple iterations of the design, the final system takes a simple approach based on the Workshop move of the Savvyhead in Apocalypse World, which allows the players to choose the depth at which they want to engage with those themes.

The Ultimate Micro-RPG Book can be found at all major booksellers.

@ash my partner got me this book for my birthday! I've had a leaf through it but sadly haven't had a chance to play any of them yet. So many cool indie RPGs I want to check out but it's hard to get groups together to try them (solo RPGs excepted).
