Endeavour is a playset for the PARAGON system. You will need a copy of the AGON rulebook to play this game. Refer to agon-rpg.com for more information.


Premise

You are an officer aboard the Interstellar Confederation Ship Endeavour. Your mission is to explore the galaxy. You will travel deep into uncharted space where you will encounter strange phenomena, make first contact with alien civilizations, and help those in need.


Tone

This is an optimistic-science fiction game. It is a game about a future in which humanity has progressed beyond the kinds of internecine conflicts that plague modern society. Advanced technology is common and has created a post-scarcity society throughout the Interstellar Confederation.

Stories in Endeavour generally involve some kind of moral quandary. Moreover, the futuristic setting acts as lens through which we can view contemporary social issues. The best such stories are fundamentally about the difficult choices the crew are asked to make and how they are affected by their experiences.

Contents

This playset includes:

  • Modified rules for the PARAGON system. Significant changes include the details of how Distinction (cf. Glory) is awarded and how Civilizations (cf. Gods) are discovered during play rather than being drawn from an existing pantheon.
  • Three versions of the 25+ page rulebook which describe the game's setting and the differences between Endeavour and AGON.
    • A full-color version of individual pages designed for use on small screens.
    • A full-color version of two-page spreads designed for use on large screens. 
    • A "half-color" booklet that can be printed and assembled into a 32-page physical rule book for the game.  This version has full-color cover and interior artwork, but the decorative page borders have been removed.
  • Two versions of the Endeavour character sheet.
    • A full-color version designed for use on screens.
    • A "half-color" version to facilitate home printing.
  • Three Planets to explore. Each Planet section includes full-page artwork as well as subsections that describe the Log Entry, Arrival, Trials, Crisis, Characters, Places, and Mysteries for that Planet.

Additional Planets

There are a number of additional Planets available that expand the world of ENDEAVOUR and can be incorporated into a campaign or used as standalone adventures.

Extra Endeavours

There are also several wonderful Planets that have been written by other authors. These offer interesting new perspectives on ENDEAVOUR and the kinds of gameplay that it can support.

Format
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.
