octaNe: premium uNleaded


B&W, 116 digest-sized pages

octaNe is the psychotronic game of post-apocalyptic, trash-culture America!

What is "psychotronic?" Well, it's mutants, monkeys, masked wrestlers, loud cars, fast women and rock guitars. In short, everything good in life...and you can drive as fast as you want.

octaNe blends high adventure, sci-fi weirdness and a rock n' roll attitude to create one of the strangest RPG's in existence.


  • Rules that let the players control the action
  • Over 40 bizarro character Roles (with rules that allow you to create your own!)
  • Four different play modes, from gritty Westerns to B-movie extravaganzas
  • Tips and tricks on running the game
  • Tasty nuggets describing the wild world of octaNe

octaNe was the 2002 Out of the Box Award Winner for "Best Sui Generis RPG."

Very fun, but very challenging; you need a group where everyone is able to make stuff up on the fly (and not too self-conscious.) Very little structure, so you have to provide that yourself.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Light, fast, [...]

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.
