From publisher blurb:
It’s Always a Dame is a story roleplaying game about the hard-boiled streets of Concrete City. There’s no room for gray in a black and white world. Either you’re doing the stepping or you’re getting stepped on. Those in power tell the rest what to do. Either by force or a little bit of green to make it all better.
And there’s always the next case. Always.
Protocol is a series of story roleplaying games that thrusts characters together into dramatic situations. Each game uses the same set of rules, with vastly different parameters, start points, characters, and finales. Players take on the roles of directors outside the action and characters inside the action, using the ebb and flow of four different scene-framing styles (vignettes, interrogations, interludes, and ensembles) to tell meaningful stories about characters in crisis.
