My absolute favorite take on the theme. Great work!!

If the Sun is on Earth, does it also rise?

Sorry. (Hemingway)

Also love the BOC reference.

Uh, Number of Companions for Sol - does that mean the cards transfer to the next player? Also, the extreme vagueness doesn't give me much of a hint if there even is the possibility of a climax to each turn. Otherwise, this is really cool. I like the predictable randomness of a playing card deck, as well as the use of the suits. Good job!

Thank you for reading and commenting. :)

I just thought the sole survivor is a commonly used term (apparently also used to refer to the player character in Fallout 4).

The companion cards should be placed in the middle of the table, and the current Sol player can use them.

There was only so much I can put in 200 words, and I hoped that everyone has some GMing experience to generate encounters using the prompts available. I appreciate your critique. I will add rules/advice for the narrator to structure a round/episode, when I write the extended rules after the voting finishes.
