They were calling it the "Archer Serial" in the GenCon video, so there might be some problems there. Since I think Pat mentioned wanting to go back to the original name, which was that.

Almost. The original name was Series Archer, which is currently what we're planning to use. May change, maybe even because of the FX series (though I doubt it - if it were to change, it would more likely have to do with decisions we make between now and release).

Good coverage of current, past and very near future realistic space travel, no reactionless thrusters for this one please.

Good coverage of biotechnology including medical scanning, genetic engineering, and tissue engineering. Spycraft 2 is very out of date in this area

Both of these areas have lots of hooks for spy games

I actually would like to see a small supplement on Corporate Espionage maybe as a precursor for cyberpunk

If it's a dream list, I'd like to vote for a Fringe Campaign Setting Wink 

In all honesty, though ... so long as I can do some fun espionage, I'll be happy Wink  Though the thought of SFA coming back would be pretty schway Wink

I think, with a new edition, it might get boring to see too much re-hashing of old books. I prefer the idea that there are plug-and-play supplements, sort-of worldbooks that present a different idea.

For example. Maybe one whole supplement that was sort of a psychic agents? Nothing like superheroes in capes (that would be lame), but a government branch that specializes in those with extra traits. Imagine it.
  • Instead of sneaking in a wiretap or a bug, working to sneak in a telepath to pick up what the team needs.
  • Being pinned down, and able to use that psychokinesis to create a distraction or open a door you're pinned in front of.
And et cetera. In the last 2.0 game I ran, I was tying some of these abilities into my main villains, mostly just to give it that "larger than life" feeling. It was also because we all were big fans of Espionage such as Metal Gear Solid, and it added that air of mystery to the campaign to have those main baddies with unpredictable moves. It kept my PCs from planting in cover for entire battles, to say the least.

What you're describing sounds like the SyFy upcoming series Alphas... kind of a Alias meets Heroes thing. Shadowforce Archer had the Psion Formula recipients; perhaps a more natural occurring phenomenon as opposed to chemically induced psionics? That does sound like it'd be a nice portion in an Adventure Companion type book or even a setting writeup in the core book.

Ashes to ashes,

I'd agree totally with an Alphas type setting.

Lo, there do I see my father. Lo, there do I see my mother.
And my sister and my brother
Lo, there do I see the line of my people Back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.They bid me take my place among them
In the halls of Valhalla Where the brave may live forever !!!
