The original THE SOL SURVIVOR 200-word RPG was rated #1 in story and #2 overall in Ian Magenta's #microrpgjam.

The Sol Survivor is a GM-less RPG for 3-6 players, played using a deck of playing cards. Inspired by Chinese Mythology, players share the role of a sun who was shot down from the sky. We tell the story of their journey to make it back to the heavens before the world is plunged into eternal darkness.

Written and designed by W.H. Arthur, with artwork by Sam Windsor.

The game's mechanics is inspired by Joshua Fox and Becky Annison's Lovecraftesque.

The download contains a 12-page PDF that is easy to print and run. (There are some colour images, but they can be printed in grey scale on a B&W printer.)
