Hey... Might as well go first class. After all, you got the hottie to buy the ticket! biggrin.gif

  Exactly. Any fool can shoot a gun, but a really scary spy guy uses his mind (and body) as a weapon. I'd rather have that guy working for my super-secret spy agency than someone who can't go anywhere without dragging a case full of guns around.

My favorite spy-RPG situations go like this: spy is put somewhere risky, like a hostile country. Start by meeting some contacts, then the agency tells you to do something dangerous, like sneak into a guarded building. If the spy gets his hands on a gun from a guard, it has like 6 bullets in it - gotta use em well. The spy should mentally be able to toss the gun away to avoid being found with it by the bad guys. Play in the casino, avoid the assassins, romance the hottie, all while keeping your cover. Foil the evil plan, send the bad guys packing, and then leave the place on a coach plane ticket reading a newspaper without suspicion.

James Bond, not James Boom. laugh.gif

Ultimately, it really depends on what your idea of 007 is. I prefer the 'Spy Who Walked in From the Cold' type 007, with backstabbings, intrigue, and forays into Communist East Germany where the agents aren't asssigned guns every time (most fights are with pistols). Some people could see 007 and think 'summer action movie' with missile launching cars and being assigned twin submachineguns.


That's not a bad idea. Heck, there's some instances where firearms simply won't do. That's when you need a bad son of a gun who can go in there with blades, improvised weapons, or bare-handed and STILL take 'em down.

Kinda like the Marine Death Squads in Viet Nam. All blades and bows- no noisemakers. Make the Pick-Up Zone or yer walkin' back. Now MOVE OUT!

Yeah, it'd be good to be a spy and have THAT skill set, let me tell ya!!

  Thanks.

Oh, and if you or anyone else need a forum to discuss game design or other collaborations, I can set one up with a password so only those you want in can be there.
SBRPG_HakDragon Posted on Sep 17 2005, 03:28 PM
  Go ahead, I'd be glad to have you list us there. In return, I'll give a shout out to your forum here in our forum. This is a cool place to hang out and talk about things.

  Interesting. Mind if I link it in the supplies thread?
SBRPG_HakDragon Posted on Sep 17 2005, 02:26 PM
  Um...

How about SBRPG? At the risk of sounding shameless, I'd suggest to take a look at the game I helped write & contribute art to, SBRPG. Seriously, though there's no need to convert anything, and we have a race and class design system that lets you build any sort of character you want. Another fun thing we have is a Faction system in the game you could use to simulate evil organizations, what they are up to, and how they react to whatever the '00' agents do.

Ultimately, it really depends on what your idea of 007 is. I prefer the 'Spy Who Walked in From the Cold' type 007, with backstabbings, intrigue, and forays into Communist East Germany where the agents aren't asssigned guns every time (most fights are with pistols). Some people could see 007 and think 'summer action movie' with missile launching cars and being assigned twin submachineguns.

The only other systems that come to mind would be GURPS (it might not have the feel you want though), or the d6 System (if you like the 'fast and loose' style of 007). What game you pick will have a big impact on how it feels, which is key to running a fun '00' game.

  Indeed. I'm in the long process of attempting to convert it over to another system. I'm going with Tri-Stat for now, but I was also thinking about Unisystem.

Any ideas?
