Based on the assumptions in the Top Secret game system, here's my version of the ISB organization Spy Package deal. (Needs some refining).

<1> Agents in Top Secret are multilingual, speaking 1 additional language for every 5 points of HERO INT above 10 (or fraction thereof).

<2> Agents in Top Secret have 1 Science, Knowledge, or other Background skill in the 12- to 14- skill range for every 2 points of HERO INT. These support the character's current or past occupation and interests, including KS: Art & Culture, SS: Transportation Engineering, KS: Physical Education, KS: Military World, etc.

<3> Agents in Top Secret with Martial Arts were given access to Swordplay, Knife Fighting, Boxing, Judo, or Martial Arts (general). This can be simulated with Fencing, Sevillian Knife Fighting, Boxing (Modern), Jujutsu, or Generic Martial Arts from UMA.

<4> Agents typically belong to a bureau, like divisions in a company, which defines their place in the mission. (IE in Mission Impossible, Barney was Technical Bureau, Roland Hand was Infiltration Bureau, etc.)

There was also a Special Ops branch in one of the Dragon magazines, IIRC, which was available after spending time in 2 or 3 other branches (ie buying the skills from those branches). Apparently it was meant to represent the James Bond level spies...
