In Odin’s Eye, the characters are search and rescue specialists aboard a galaxy-hopping spaceship. They’re dedicated, highly-trained, and often sent into impossibly hostile places. Their motto — “No Star Unturned” — serves as a reminder to never give up, even when the mission could spell their doom.
While orbiting an alien planet, the crew of Odin’s Eye intercepts a distress beacon of unknown origin, squawking from the planet’s surface. Geological instability and fluctuating weather patterns make it difficult to pinpoint the beacon’s nexus. One thing is certain, its rhythmic signature is unlike any before.
Something down there is either alien… or confused.
It’s only a matter of time before the planet’s toxicity kills whoever is sending the signal…
Praxis is a series of story roleplaying games that thrusts characters into dramatic situations and is based on the principles of the Protocol game system. Each game uses the same set of rules, with vastly different parameters, start-points, roles, plot twists, and finales. Praxis does not play like a traditional roleplaying game. It does not require a gamemaster. There is no script. No endpoint. No cumbersome or extraneous mechanics detracting from the story. An entire epic can be played in under four hours.

Additional characters are available here:

All Protocol Games are 100% GMless, require almost no preperation time, and use the same game system. There are over 50 games in the series, which means there HAS to be something here for you.

Praxis is a really nice framework. It gives you a GMless structured game to play, which really helps teach the players how to play with scene framing. Each archtype/character has a number of scene types they can play with and must cycle through: Ensemb [...]

Hey there, long time reader and player, first time reviewer. Tonight we played Odin's Eye at a game day for the first time. We had a mix of players from three people who have played several installments of the Black Monk series to one player who had ne [...]

I am a huge fan of the Praxis series of books from Post World Games. They are, in my opinion, some of the best "gateway" gmless games on the market. What makes Praxis nice and accessible is the fact that there are mechanics that feel familiar [...]

Original electronic
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.
