A downloadable TTRPG
The Live-More Collective is a thriving solarpunk community in a post-collapse world, more than 150 years after the Collapse of the U.S. government and most of 21st century society and technology. They are located (mostly) in the former state of California, near the former San Francisco Bay Area.
Every 13 years, they send out a "dandelion seed coven" of 13 people, to explore and potentially settle elsewhere. Some explore for months or years and then return. Some are absorbed into other communities. Some settle nearby, and some travel very far away and it takes several years to send word back about what happened to them. Some of these covens vanish and are never heard from again.
You are part of the thirteenth coven, 169 years after the founding of Live-More. You are about to leave your home and explore the often-hostile world built on the broken remnants of the pre-Collapse world.
About the game system: Fate Accelerated Edition is a tabletop RPG recommended for 3-5 players and a GM. It requires a set of 4 Fate Dice, but regular d6's can be used by counting 1-2 as -1, 3-4 as 0, and 5-6 as +1. A free Fate Dice roller can be found online at https://matita.github.io/fatedice/, and many dice-rolling apps also include Fate dice.
The world of the Dandelion Covens is strongly inspired by Starhawk's The Fifth Sacred Thing.
The current download version is a 26-page letter-sized PDF; it has about 9000 words of content.
As of June 2021, this is a draft version. It's playable but hasn't been proofread, and the formatting is likely to change later. (It'll have better fonts. And a print version that doesn't require color. And probably a version that's easier to read on a tablet.)
