Navigator RPG - Playtest

Galaxy Saving High Adventure

This game has taken the core of White Star and given it a 1980’s d100 make over to produce an alternative version of the classic Iron Crown Enterprises Inc. Space Master.

It is certainly not White Star anymore but it isn’t Space Master either. You do get attack and critical tables with the iconic ‘66’ and ‘00’ instant death results. You also get that simple OSR monster format. You get d100 stats, open ended rolls and any character can learn any skill. It is your skills that define what you can and cannot do.

You also get a much simpler world, the OSR way of doing things.

Conversion Rules

The game has fully playable character species, alien and human, cultures and professions. What you also get are the rules used to create those species, cultures and professions. If you own just about any OSRIC, OGL or Swords and Wizardry book, including the White Star Galaxy Edition you can convert it over to expand the core rules in this game. It is a central design goal that a community should expand this game to add the level of detail and simulationist rules that your group enjoys but at the same time that detail is entirely optional. Fast and loose play is just as easy, if not easier.

Free as in Speech and as in Beer

The OGL license guarantees that this game will be free, as in speech, for anyone to add, remix, and modify. You can create anything you like for it and sell it as your own.

I personally guarantee that this game will always be no more than PWYW. If you want the game for free, as in beer, then just download it.

This Game is Pay What You Want, but if you can, please pay something.

Printed Books

At the end of the playtest period this book will be available as printed, print on demand, books. The donations from the Pay What You Want will be used to meet those expenses.

What do you get?

The playtest download has the rules as a PDF and a couple of additional documents not needed to play the game but only intended for those wanting to playtest and start creating your own supplements for Navigator RPG. 

You also get PDF character sheets for each profession and blanks for your own creations.

The playtest PDF is a layered PDF so background colours can be turned off for easier printing.


The donations so far have more than met the costs of getting the print proofs done. Further donations are going towards buying in high quality art.

339 downloads so far!

Thank you!

There is a start of a community on Discord

I am hoping to have a new revision of the rules uploaded soon.

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.
