ROOTS & FLOWERS
A Solarpunk Hack of Lasers & Feelings
In a not-so-distant future, we gave up the illusion of knowing better. This opened new avenues in technological innovation, improving life, and opening our awareness of the subtle, ancestral magic of the world.
You are the local community's troubleshooters. Your community turns to you for aid in things big and small. You resolve them by means of innovation, knowledge, technology, mediation, and ancestral guidance.
- aid and support your community;
- go on wild, fun, solarpunk adventures;
- challenge the legacy of the World Before;
- imagine a possible future.
About ROOTS & FLOWERS
ROOTS & FLOWERS is a Solarpunk game. Here we imagine what could happen when humanity takes a hard turn towards a community-driven, sustainable civilisation.
Use your tech savvy, interpersonal skills or ancestral magic to tackle issues that trouble your community and enjoy something nice - we all deserve it.

For sure, a good game well written and designed ! Didn't know about the CATS method and this is a really great tool :D
The solarpunk tone is really balanced throughout lore and mechanics, which by the way are elegant and sufficiently engaging for a game about caring, cooperation and community.
Overall, the design is simple yet effective and there are always examples when needed to facilitate comprehension.
The only issue is... clearly, when creating a character, I want it to have ALL personal goals !! :D
