    Top Secret New World Order Rules Discussion/Questions

    1) On pg 94 under Crashes it mentions that basically if you fail a High Speed Maneuver roll you must roll on the Crash Table but it does not tell you what die type to roll. In all other instances the situation tells you what die type to use when rolling on the Crash Table. How am I to know...

    Advice on a villain for a Espionage RPG

    I am thinking about getting either Classified or the new Top Secret game. While brainstorming, I came up with a antagonist faction for the game. They are basically a cult that is a mix of Thugges and Hare Krishna who worship Kali,the Hindu Goddess. They are based in India but have influence all...

    [Night's Black Agents] Seeking Advice: 2 player campaign

    I'm tossing around the idea for a Night's Black Agents campaign involving two regular players. More may be added in the future as they become available and/or interested, but for the near future (2-6 months) I'll have two regular players. I plan to either use the Dust or Burn mode. NBA players...

    Tips and Tricks for Running the Spy Genre (TS/NBA/etc)?

    I started a short scenario for Night's Black Agents, to introduce myself and my (rather lazy) players to the Gumshoe system in the supernatural spy mode... it's 1877, the scenario that is pre-Edom, with aspiring "agents" of the early burgeoning spy agency of Britain, the operation located in...

    I'm sure someone's done this?

    Last week, it crossed my mind that I like espionage games-- Top Secret was my first RPG, and I am growing to like Powered by the Apocalypse's "engine". Has anyone put this chocolate with this peanut butter?

    [Sell Me On/Off] World of Secrets & Any Other PBTA Spy RPGs

    I like Apocalypse World hacks and I want to do some modern-spy roleplaying. I found World of Secrets via google, but almost nothing about it. Has anyone actually played it? Is it any good? Are there any other PBTA spy games? I'm open to different variations of "spy game"--shooty action vs...

    Sell me on: Covert Ops or Classified!

    I've been looking at the Nest of Spies bundle, and these are the only two games that interest me out of the bundle. However, I'm unsure how much I might actually be interested in either. Classified, a retro-clone of the infamous James Bond RPG, sounds as if it's perhaps not held up too well...

    [Covert Ops] How does it stack up?

    I came of age in the '80s and started roleplaying in 1979/80. One of my very first games — after D&D, of course — was Top Secret. I loved Top Secret. I played scads of Top Secret. And when Top Secret/SI came along, I played the hell out of that, too. Meanwhile I was also playing James Bond...

    [FAE] My spy-fi one shot made me a believer

    I ran my sixties spy-fi game, "Goodbye is Forever," at Gen Con. I picked FAE because it's simple to teach, but has the Fate features I like best. It went over brilliantly enough that I'm now being asked to reprise the game on Hangouts. I figured I'd give a summary and ask what other folks are...

    do real spies carry a gun?

    Aren't real spies suppose to live a quiet life to blend in? Why is it that every TV/Hollywood production always shows them as guns-a-blazin type? If you want to blend in, you wouldn't be blowing and shooting everything up? Am I correct in this? or ?? I'm trying to figure out something about...
