Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu.
I am because we are.

"One of you is a mech.
One of you is a pilot. 

Sometimes you’re not sure you know which is which anymore. 

Not that it will matter for much longer.

You’re trapped. You’re damaged. It’s getting darker and colder. You don’t know how long you’ll last or when the end will come. But you know it’s coming. And there is nothing you can do to stop it. At some point, the final light will go out and your systems will fail.

Until then, remember your shared history, think about what brought you here, explore the joy and the pain you’ve felt, and find the courage to say the things you need to say, knowing you’ll never get another chance."

Ubuntu System Failure is a  short ritual for two people inspired by Meguey and Vincent Baker's Mobile Frame Zero: Firebrands. In Ubuntu System Failure, one of you is a mech and one of you is the mech's pilot. It is very rules light and focuses heavily on relationships--both between the pilot and mech, but also between anyone and their community, their past, and the important people in their lives.

This is an ashcan version of this game.  I will likely continue to develop it over time, but (with the newly updated formatting and revised pick lists) it is in a state that I am quite happy with.

Community Copies

Support this ritual at or above a special price point to receive something exclusive.

Community Copies

Each copy purchased at the full price helps make the game available to folks whose budget doesn't enable them to pay the listed price

Feel free to grab a copy if you are a member of a marginalized community or if you just don't currently have the resources to spare. There is no test to see if you're marginalized enough. If you think a community copy is for you, it is. I know I often second guess myself when I consider claiming one of these, and I'm telling you right now, you can go ahead and claim it. It makes me happy to provide these and to know that someone wanted to check out my game.

If there are no community copies available, DM me on Twitter @HarkMorper and I'll get you one.
