But I think I have a basic idea for my character.  He's the kid with the overprotective parent.  You know the one, with the Mom who wants to know where he will be at all times, and wherever it is, make sure to wear protective gear at all times young man!  Because of her constantly warning him of the "dangers" of the world, he's a bit nervous about doing anything, but he is also frustrated from not being allowed to do all the fun things the other kids are doing.

Mine will basically be the opposite, and when his parents do the responsable thing and drop him off at his grandparents so they can do their work in London...

he doesn't like it... he wants the freedom, he hates being stuck at his grandparent's when his mom and dad are doing what they, and he love... travelling and playing ...

meanwhile he's stuck in this dull old place with his grandparents he doesn't ofte see and people his own age he doesn't know ...

for his grandparents it's fun... they try to spend as much time as possible... which he finds a bit stiffling...

it sounds interesting...

one little Caveat...

I've never played 2.0  Cheesy I stuck with classic, I'll probably buy third as well, and from what I've read now.. I'll play it....

I never really understood 2.0, but I have the required material... so if people would be willing to put up with that... (and help me out during char creation...  Roll Eyes) jeez, I actually feel like a noob now  Cheesy

Looks pretty cool.  I was totally expecting a "bond girl" type Specialty though, which means now my subconscious is trying to come up with one...

I'm not really a technical rules guy  Roll Eyes I mostly do stories  Wink but feel free...

Sounds nifty, but my classic spy thoughs have been derailed after watching the recent OSS-117 flicks, so I keep seeing Jean Dujardin smiling cockily and triggering WWIII.

ooh nice!  Cheesy I didn't know the french made spy movies in the 50s... thanks for the tip I'll definately look for them..

a little bit of Hunt for the Red October, a little bit of Bond add a dash of Mission Impossible

Shake, don't stirr...

Good morning Jim,

Earlier this week the Russian navy was put on high alert, and “exercises” were started in the North Atlantic region. In order to defuse this tense situation,  Minister of Defense Andrei Grechko has sent a message to NATO operations that the activity concerns a routine exercise and will be no threat to NATO nor its allies.  After some investigation we suspect that there is more than meets the eye, our Norwegian office informed us know that a few hours before the general alert was sounded, a Golf II class submarine was spotted leaving Soviet waters.

According to our sources, this specific ship, the K-118 is capable of carrying the new SS-N-5 ballistic missiles which are suspected to have an operational range of approximately 1500km and carry a nuclear warhead. If normal procedure was followed, the warheads cannot be activated nor launched without proper authorization from the Kremlin, however in view of these events we cannot be sure of this.

As of yesterday we have noticed increased activity from arms dealers around the world, most notable of which Dr. Amal Bin Khatun. We suspect Dr. Bin Khatun is linked to these series of events, as such we believe the best course of action for identifying the final destination of the ship and its dangerous cargo.  Being a Racing fan, Dr. Bin Khatun will be in Monaco during the Grand Prix, according to our sources, he has planned a party for his close friends and business partners in the Monaco Casino.

Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to find the submarine and its warheads and make sure they don’t fall into the hands of undesirable elements.

A team has been assembled and will be joining you in the Basel safe house shortly, as always should you or any of your team be captured or killed, the secretary general will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds.

full scenario may follow if my mind doesn't melt... Roll Eyes

I know some stuff about Belgium, Netherlands, France ... travelled around europe (both for work and fun) so I can talk intelligently (?) about most countries here...

btw. great reception for free WIFI on Helsinki airport...

apart from that mostly usesless stuff
- some software development / design
- consulting
- chemicals/chemical sector
- resource/budget planning
- negociation/diplomacy (consultant  Evil)
- random useless facts 
- cars! especially european cars from the 50's and 60' (later as well but mainly european), the only exception to the european are american muscle....
- some knowledge about beer/wine and food (hey I like good food... who doesn't?)

I have absolutely no knowledge about military / guns /... apart from police vehicles my knowledge about police and their procedures is reasonably low...

you see! mostly useless unless you ask me why "french fries" are called that strange name.... hint: they're not from France!  Cheesy or how you make mayonaise... also a good ice breaker...

11  Products / Spycraft Third Edition / what brought you into spycraft on: July 24, 2012, 02:48:52 AM
so, up for a bout of nostalgia?

what brought you guys into Spycraft (why the Spycraft game/books)

for me it was 3 things (talking about the classic version here)

1) both "Spy" and "Espionage" were mentionned on the cover Smiley and I love the genre...
2) the 6 base classes were great (although after the 60's book came out I switched the Snoop with the Wire... suited better in my opinion)
3) Artwork... specifically the cover art of both the Silver and Black lines were perfect

Seems to be the season for old guard to come in from the cold....

Hi Wolfie...  feels good to be back Smiley

I've seen a lot of debate elsewhere on the internet recently about the merits of 'lots of smaller books' vs 'a couple of big books'. Depending on the pricing, it seems that people prefer less books, though that may be an ingrained dislike of WotC's 'ALL OF THE BOOKS' system.

Personally, I err on the side of less books overall, but eBooks are starting to swing me back the other way. Laptops can make really good GM screens...

All my books are located on my tablet, which makes the number of books irrelevant as long as they're well indexed, as such I prefer more but smaller books.. but it's a personal choice

Remember - the more goes in, the bigger the book is, and the bigger the book is, the harder it is to learn, teach, and use. It's a universal truth with RPGs. Thus the dilemma.

Pat ,

Personally I prefer a lean but complete book.  It does not have to cover everything in a single book.  It's daunting to open a 500page book of rules.... (or more recently a 200mb pdf)

Main book  'basic concept'.... additional books 'agency how to + examples' and/or 'freelance how to + examples'

But that's just my take

Freedom is nice to have but most of the people just get carried away and it can really bog down the "preparation" of any session...

bundles were a nice way of tackling that... Personally I prefer the bundle way of working
1) it saves time
2) you don't have to search endlessly
3) it seems logical... the agency has people who are experts at making sure you have all your gear... just like they have experts at handling the travel arrangements... I can't see James Bond sitting at his desk trying to figure out which plane he should take to get from London to Canberra with the least amount of stopovers...

so premade bundles, but allow some way to build your own "basic sets"

does that make any sense?
