Necronautilus Science Fantasy RPG

Watermarked PDF

Necronautilus is a tabletop roleplaying game for a Gamemaster and 1+ players. 

In it, players act as souls bound to clouds of noxious gas called Death Agents, exploring a universe outside of time consisting of planets full of creatures who ended up there when they died. While using their Words of Power to act on behalf of the blind god Death and maintain order in a post-death galaxy, they’ll see their powers grow and splinter while exploring the corporeal life they left behind.

This game is simultaneously a stoner-metal science fantasy and an exploration of the subjectivity of language, ethics, memory, and reality. It is designed for single-sessions of play or ongoing series of missions across a variety of planets.

If you like games like Troika!, movies like Guardians of The Galaxy, or music by Spirit Adrift, Ghost, or Black Sabbath, this game is for you.

Clean Simple Rules - a collection of systems and resources that are easily tracked on the character sheet allow you to start playing in minutes. Roll 2d6, hope you get low numbers, and you'll be traversing the galaxy in no time.

  • Emergent Storytelling - learn about the universe and your characters as you go, no need for players or GM to study the book to prepare.

  • Dynamic Characters - they grow as you explore and focus their strengths and desires around what interests players most. Easily swing between power fantasy and emotional insight with near-instant, class-less character creation.

  • Galactic Exploration - planets are defined by the playgroup as you explore them, allowing for the setting to shift with what players want to do most. Combines quick procedural generation with player input to create an infinite universe. Every group's galaxy is uniquely their own.

  • Skulls - there are a lot of them. The freakin character sheet has you writing words in eye sockets.

  • A High-quality Hardcover Book - 80 pages of simple rules, wild lore, rich layout, and gonzo artwork in black & white available now in the World Champ store.

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.
