KawangaKid Posted September 29, 2004 Report Share Posted September 29, 2004 Well, Tara Chace is now Minder One and she's gunning for the Director of Ops post. If you don't know what I'm talking about well.. ... it's one of my favorite comic books out now and it details a group of Minders that server British Intelligence. More real world stuff being done here - interagency deals, politics and personal agendas mucking up the works, and Minders being sent out to do intelligence work. And they only get to draw weapons on site when told to. More Sandbaggers and The Professionals and Dangerman / Secret Agent man than Bond... where the agents try to hold on to some shred of integrity in a murky world of lies and subterfuge. While rules for guns and martial arts figure into this, clearly there is a greater need for intelligence skills and interpersonal skills. Cool tech equipment is used, but tends to favor the reliable and mostly invisible tech than the fancy doo-dads of Q. Heck, there's even some corporate intrigue when the daughter of a major British media conglomerate is used to blackmail her father into making concessions to certain French interests... Has ANYONE set up a Dark Champions game along these lines yet? What resources do you pore through for plots and plausible spy-speak? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
