Solar Mech Squad: An Interstellar Solarpunk TTRPG

Solar Mech Squad is a solarpunk TTRPG that I made as part of the Caltrop Core game jam! Save the environment using awesome mechs!

Solar Mech Squad is a solarpunk (nature-tech) tabletop RPG that focuses on teamwork, problem solving, and having non-violent fun with massive mechs!

In this game, you play as a group of ecologists and engineers who travel through space and find planets that were once ruined by their inhabitants to help return them to a livable state.  Since the planets are often dangerous to begin with, you utilize a fleet of mechs that you can remotely control to send to the surface.  Your goal is to work together through your mechs and get creative so you can meet all the requirements to set future inhabitants up in a sustainable community that will coexist with the planet this time instead of depleting it.

Choose a mech with special abilities to help your group complete all the habitat goals!  Team up to earn bonus dice and handle world events ranging from storms to toxic waste to volcanic eruptions!  Have fun and learn about sustainable community practices while building problem solving skills and teamwork!

Solar Mech Squad does require some reading and understanding of cause and effect, however the content is appropriate for all ages and there’s no combat.  This game is for 2-4 players plus an optional game guide.

Solar Mech Squad runs on Caltrop Core, a rules-lite and easy to use mechanic developed by TitanomachyRPG, and this game was submitted as part of the Super Secret Caltrop Core Game Jam!
