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.
