From the introduction:
Welcome to Narrative Adventures Made Easy (NAME), a simple storytelling game whose rules and setting are designed to create fun and memorable adventures involving only a single protagonist.
Playing NAME requires paper and pencil and two people eager for stories of adventure and humor. NAME makes an excellent and kid-friendly introduction to role-playing games. Its sensible rules and synergistic setting make it easy to design and play adventures. The game can be played anywhere because core rules do not require dice, maps, or miniatures (optional rules for dice, maps, and miniatures are included).
