The Game

Nomadic is a tragic solo tabletop role-playing game focused on exploration and survival. Inspired by No Man’s Sky and the eponymous song by Ben Prunty, this game is simultaneously harsh, hopeless, and beautiful. Based on the Breathless system, you navigate the harshness of space, study dangerous worlds, gather resources, and move on to the next planet, all in the hope of finding a new home for humankind. The catch is that you never actually find it.Throughout the game, you use oracles when things are uncertain, perform dangerous actions, and strive to take care of your mind, equipment, and spaceship.Creator: René-Pier Deshaies of Fari RPGsIllustrator: Galen Pejeau of Assembly Requisite

Nomad #647 logging in. I've just entered a new planet's orbit. I'm going to name this one Abori IV. So far, the atmosphere seems OK, but I'll need to land to collect more data.
Haven't heard from the other Nomads in weeks, my suit is showing signs of wear and tear, and my ship is going to need some fuel soon. Hopefully, this planet will have enough resources to keep me going.— Andy, signing out.
