The suave personality. The fancy clothes. The cool cars. The futuristic gadgets. Spies certainly have a lot going for them. Sure, there's possible death around every corner, but I think it's worth the risk. ... Not in real life, of course. I'm talking about in an RPG where you can just brush yourself off and keep going, no matter what happens. That's what you can do in Super Secret Spy Agency, a new RPG from the creator of Ghost Ops and Delve that's up on Kickstarter now.
You're a member of an elite covert-ops team. You've got the best gear and training. Your missions include deep-cover operations in hostile territory. You're a member of Wraith Recon. And while most games with those sorts of descriptions take place in the present or near-future, this one takes place in a fantasy world. Wraith Recon is getting a new edition and the book is up on Kickstarter now.
Seems we've got a couple stories talking about games that were successfully Kickstarter now being available to order. In this case, it's Ghost Ops. The game is a tabletop RPG where you'll be part of an international special forces team that is sent into the world's most dangerous and unstable places, doing what you can through clandestine means to make things better. Their Kickstarter was able to fund the game, and you can get your pre-order for it in now.
The military has all manner of special forces that they train for various missions. Navy Seals, Green Berets, Army Rangers. They are the elite of the elite. They go in where precision raids need to be done and sending in whole divisions of troops just isn't feasible. In Ghost Ops, players get to take on the role of one of these special operatives. The RPG is up on Kickstarter now.
In the far distant future, the human race has stretched out into the stars. Unfortunately, being humans, we've pretty much annoyed, bothered, and become enemies with just about every sentient race we've found out there. As such, numerous wars have been fought as humans look to gain access to various resources that they so sorely need. Sometimes, humans end up in prison for crimes committed during these wars. Well, instead of just being a drain on resources, those criminals are given an option: Firing squad or join with the Zombie Squad (so named because they're basically the walking dead). Obviously, if your character goes with the firing squad, it's a pretty quick game. Anyway, that's the story behind The Zombie Squad, a new sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter.
