Salvage Union Core Book

Salvage Union is a post-apocalyptic mech tabletop roleplaying game. You play as Salvager Mech Pilots who scour the wasteland for salvage in scrap built mechs.

Set in a scarred world ruled by corporations whose denizens live in isolated
mega-settlements known as Arcos. The corpos control the vast majority of arable land and resources and have a constant hunger for power and control.

As Salvagers you have found a way to live your lives outside the bounds of corpo control, roaming the wastes in a vast mech known as a Union Crawler which houses your entire community. The scrap you haul back to your Union Crawler is used to support, sustain, and grow your community and craft new Mechs for you and your crew.

As you explore the wastelands for scrap you’ll encounter wastelanders, raiders, mutants, bio-titans, alien Meld, and corpo forces all fighting for survival in this hostile landscape. Will you salvage enough scrap for you and your community to survive in the wastes or fall prey to its dangers?

False Flag Adventure Module

An inky black void sweeps across frozen lands, consuming everything in its path like a relentless tidal wave of nothingness. This phenomenon is known as the Vornaya Event, an anomaly that heralds the emergence of the Meld—an intelligent, otherworldly, nanite, hive entity.

Meld Nanites possess both danger and tremendous value. They serve as a conduit to unlock new realms of research, boasting the ability to mend and even reshape themselves into any conceivable form of technology.

Amidst the chaos, a Cold War ignites between DronTek and the Stefanus Corporation, each vying fiercely for control over the bountiful resource of Meld Nanites. The hardworking populace of Vornaya finds themselves ensnared in the crossfire, reduced to mere pawns in this escalating power struggle.

As seasoned Salvagers, you navigate a region immersed in the midst of this intense battle for supremacy—an environment ripe for an array of unsavoury tasks. However, as the smoke clears and the dust settles, will you still recognize the reflection staring back at you in the mirror?
