On Nobody's Side

Watermarked PDF

Thrown Out for Being Out

You were the best at what you did, and what you did was as lethal as it was quiet. But you weren't quiet enough about something else... your gender, your orientation, your ancestry. Your employers didn't like who you really were, and they threw you out without ceremony or dignity.

A License to Live

But no one wants an unemployed spy. The Ministry approached you, and gave you the chance to once again fight for the free world... or at least the free market. In exchange, on your off time, you get to be yourself, without fear of prosecution or persecution.

Are you loyal to your masters or your friends? To your country or your principles? Or are you...

On Nobody's Side

On Nobody's Side is a spy thriller set in the 60s... any 60s you like, any midcentury flashpoint when everything's to play for. You and your friends create spies, their contacts, and their enemies. You rotate the GM position, telling interweaving stories of action, intrigue, and betrayal.


  • Take risks to get more dice, while matches open up opportunities and rain down consequences.
  • Use plot cards like Irresistable Attraction, Desperate Chase, or I Expect You to Die to guide your story toward iconic spy moments.
  • As Controller, put your spy into deadly situations, fix deals with dangerous factions, and confront other agents.
Your download includes the 24-page core rulebook and 38 plot cards, in both VTT-friendly image and tabletop print-and-play formats.

Bought this RPG for my daughter who loves trying different types of games. She fell in love with the game mechanics for first read and immediately setup a game time with her friends. They played two back to back adventures in one night and found the game very playable, fast paced and enjoyable. The Hot/Cold system worked very well as did the plot twist cards. They rated it Four out of Five, with the only negative criticism being that the rules could be explained better, it needs character sheets and the rules do not cover everything well so you have to make stuff up on the fly.

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.
