Viva La Luna!

"You can't fight city hall" is a bunch of b.s. There are literally hundreds of ways to take down an oppressive regime. MoonPunk is filled with them.

MoonPunk is a standalone political action Powered by the Apocalypse roleplaying game for 3-7 people. It also contains real-world guides to direct action. Play as punks on a retrofuturistic Moon fighting the good fight against oppression. Use subversive action to take down The Authority, spread the truth about corruption, protest the corporate, or just punch some moon nazis.

This book contains everything you need to start fighting the power.

Inside you will find:

  • 12 punk playbooks, and how to make your character.
  • 9 basic moves for navigating and narrating the world.
  • 26 pieces of digital art.
  • A punk's guide to direct action.
  • Everything you could need to run a game as "The Authority."
  • 4 example modules to run your game.

So sew on some patches, spike up your hair, and turn it up to 11. The show's about to start.

Horizontal Playbooks and player reference sheets are available here and at the free MoonPunk Quickstart also on this site.

Posting here since I can't leave it as a review- I bought the book at a local game store the other day and I'm super excited to run a campaign of it for my friends! Everything in the book is really easy to understand and I love that there's just enough worldbuilding in the book to promote creativity and inspire the players without being an overwhelming or restricting amount of information. Personally I really loved the map of the domes + tiny descriptions for them- while it was a small amount of information it really got me thinking about how I can create a basis for my players to build off of for the environments and what specific challenges each dome might hold. I haven't run a campaign for any ttrpg myself before because it generally seems overwhelming (for dnd especially) but reading through the book for moonpunk made me more excited than anything else so I can't wait for this to be my first campaign as a gm!

I love this game dearly! Bought directly from their website so I am leaving my review as a Discussion instead.

Having yet to play any other Powered by the Apocalypse setting (AtLA is on my list), I cannot speak to how well the rules of this game distinguish themselves from the many other games based in that system. What I can say without a doubt is that when it comes to the most important element of this project: the meta promise that the mechanics of the game double as a guide for taking Direct Action in real life, Jessica Geyer and Alex Sprague hit the ball out of the park.

In addition to giving a list of well thought-out and thematic playbooks and moves (the ' classes' and 'abilities' of Powered by the Apocalypse), the book gives players guidance on what their goals should be and how to achieve them in-game, which do indeed double as real-life strategies. Similarly, the section that instructs the Authority (the game's GM) on what sort of strategies to use against the player characters...See more

Thanks you for that!

Also you are right that our world-building was in many ways fairly lax. It stems directly from the way that Jess & Alex GM/play games and is a weakness of design we looked at in The Means of Magick our more recent release. Hard not to design very specifically for the ways you engage with games, so more flavor and more lore is always on the horizon on our future endeavors.

I'm happy to have backed the KS. A great game and a succinct introduction to taking direct actions against oppression.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
