At long last, a new version of the playtest kit for my Cold War espionage game “The Service”!
It’s a (mainly) mission-based game that is made to emulate the kind of gritty, bureaucratic, dirt-under-your-fingernails espionage that you would encounter in Le Carré, Len Deighton or The Sandbaggers.
I had an earlier version up here a while ago. A lot of this will be familiar if you already saw that one, but I’ve overhauled bits and pieces throughout.
Big shout-out to Acronico Meia Noite who came up with most of the Crises and provided me with much needed help and encouragement. Huge thanks also to Marshall Miller for giving a lot of extremely well-though out feedback to the previous version.
If you notice mistakes, faults, typos or stuff that makes your blood boil, I’m super grateful for any feedback! This is still a work in progress, so anything that makes it better is much appreciated.
