ODYSSEY AQUATICA is a 1960s oceanographic adventure playset for the PARAGON system from the AGON roleplaying gameA copy of AGON is required to play. For more on the PARAGON system visit AGON-RPG.com.

The year is 1960 and you are an Oceanographic Adventurer, a brave or foolhardy soul who goes to the most remote seas and the deepest ocean trenches to conduct groundbreaking research, help those in peril, document the wonders you discover — and bask in the glory. 

You will chart your character’s life work, from their first expeditions to their last, and record memoirs of the years lived in-between. 

ODYSSEY AQUATICA adapts the fast and flexible PARAGON system to a world of 20th century oceanographic adventure inspired by The Life Aquatic, Subnautica, and the life and times of Jacques Cousteau.

This playset includes: 

  • Expanded rules for the PARAGON system, including memoirs; many years will pass and your character's life will change between expeditions. Go from a young gun in your prime to the burnished glory of your twilight years. 
  • Rivals. Each character has a corresponding rival; track their life journey between expeditions alongside your own.
  • A 60+ page playset guide, fully designed and illustrated.
  • A character sheet, strife sheet, and a dedicated sheet for the crew's research vessel (let me tell you about my boat). 
  • Five expeditions ready to play - with arrival, trials, battle, characters, locations, and art for each.
  • A custom character sheet is available for Roll20 virtual tabletop.

Is there [or will there be] a physical copy of this?


There is not currently, but there are plans afoot. Watch this space.


I had never seen The Life Aquatic before, so I just wanted to let you know that this excellent playset inspired me to finally watch the film; I loved it!!

Really solid work on this gem.


Thank you! And if I inspired just one person to watch the Life Aquatic, my work here is done. 


Wow, this looks amazing! Do I need to have the Agon book in order to play it? Congratulations! 


Thanks! Yes, you do need a copy of Agon to play. You can get it here: http://www.agon-rpg.com/ (the good news is that Agon is excellent and worth buying anyway)


Oh my god. Where has this been all of my life?
