Will SC3 have....
« on: August 12, 2016, 06:39:23 AM »
...rules to infiltrate a facility by finding the dumbest sub-contractor available and getting hired by them?  (1/2 Work rant and 1/2 legit question)  lol

That was an incredibly short post.  My apologies.  I was typing on a tablet.. a habit I need to break.  Posted early, then work happened.  So.. anyway... SC3 and ways to get inside places you don't belong.  Social Engineering being a huge 'thing' now a days.  While we're playing SC2 and everyone is diving behind cover trying to figure out what's the best way to blow the face off a Satyr, someone asked how the heck the Satyr got in here in the first place.  He was wearing a Janitor's outfit.  They hired him.  That got to talking about SC2's dramatic conflicts, and while we know that is still in the "wait until we release info" category, we're wondering if a scene's access would be handled in real time or something like a downtime, before mission roll?  Acting it out vs. a static value DC?  Obviously if that's too specific a question, it's cool.  Just something we got to wondering while Saytrs, a pop singer who's enthralled with him, and the Satyr's concealed 10mm are all doing battle with the forces of good, justice and what the heck did we get ourselves into!?

Spycraft Third will definitely cover this sort of intrusion. The extent to which we cover it remains to be seen, however.

We're just about to go into a stretch when I expect we'll be focusing the core books rather than expanding them. We'll be better able to answer questions like this after that phase of development is done.

Awesome!  That's CP!  And remember.. if you ever outsource your IT to the lowest bidder, make sure you write into the contract that yes, you do require the techs to take your security somewhat seriously and no, they should not be throwing away the passwords that safeguard your IP unpublished and work documents in the trash at the local Dunkin Donuts / Starbucks... *grumble*

I wanted to ask pretty much the same question, so I'd use some Action Dice to give this thread a Revolving Door quality!

My question, however, is "will Spycraft 3 allow PCs that aren't agents but must be included in some kind of operations for the good of the operation"? I mean people with specialised skills, like crooks, gamblers, cops or vigilantes stumbling on an operation, and the like.

Maybe eventually, but not at first.

As a follow-up question, which of your games would it be closer to, FC or Mistborn?

Closer to FC. It is an all-new system, different from FC as well, but a further evolution from the basics of d20 away into even more of its own thing. I do have a series of blogs drafted about "What Mistborn taught me about Spycraft" covering the lessons I've learned about game development and player desires from that game, though :)
"Alex doesn't feel anything. He's more word processor than man anymore." - Krensky

A reminder.

I'd like to read them if said blog is open to the public :) .

Not yet. They'll be things we post close to or during the Kickstarter, which is still a ways off.
