Under a Hostile Sun

Under a Hostile Sun is a new tabletop RPG where your enemy isn’t the monsters – it’s the very environment itself.

The galaxy recently had a great upheaval.  Now many, seeking to escape corrupt local governors and war-ravished worlds, are desperately taking to space exploration.  It’s a hope for a better life.  But at a cost.  The planets explored will include environments not easily inhabitable – volcanic hellscapes, colossal storms, radiation and more.  But with some grit, and a firm faith in the Immutable, maybe, just maybe, you and your brave team of settlers will be able to survive and greet the alien sun, not as an existential threat, but as a friend.

  • A rules-lite exploration-focused RPG.  There is no combat system – rather the enemy is the brutal environment you are trying to survive in.
  • Rules-light but exciting system for Environmental Encounters that encourages risk vs reward decisions. Players always operate under an unknown amount of Opportunity. Once Opportunity goes, their spacesuits begin to fail, leaving them exposed to the hostile environment they are in!
  • Currency system that allows easy tracking of resources mined from the planet.   Find alien creatures to produce even rarer resources – maybe even the Prime Matter- unlimited potential- itself.
  • Alchemy System that allows for wide creativity.
  • Character Sheets fit on one index card.  
  • Collect Alien creatures!
  • Illustrated with Adobe Photoshop / Fresco.
  • Licensed under the new ORC LICENSE !
