From publisher blurb:
Owlkeep Academy is a story roleplaying game about the fallout of a magical war. Thirty years ago a civil war was fought inside the walls of Owlkeep Academy, a secret school for children with ‘the gift.’ The victors stumbled out of the war as masters of their craft, but also as victims of unspeakable horrors. Over the intervening years, those same veterans found they didn’t belong in the mundane world. They never ‘quite fit in.’ Today, they’ve returned to Owlkeep to rebuild the academy and mentor the newest students, bringing with them their mastery… and their baggage.
Each game in the Protocol series is zero-prep for 3 or more players.
The game length is exponentially long, so games with more players take more time to complete. The Protocol Series requires a deck of poker cards as well as tokens to track drama points.
