What is Different?

The Solar Echoes game system is designed to move fast, encourage teamwork, and to provide a variety of challenging scenarios. In Solar Echoes, the players work as Union Guard agents on a special-forces team, while the MC (Mission Controller, the title we give to the Game Master in Solar Echoes) manages the narrative, the scenario, and the challenges the players will face.

fast
