Welcome to the New World Order.

It’s the autumn of 1991, and the world isn’t what it used to be. Saddam Hussein’s army lies in smoldering ruins. The Soviet Union is suffering its death throes. Germany has been reunified. Africa is aflame with small bush wars. Across the world, the balance of power is shifting. Old powers are dying out and the playing field of the future will be a chaos of warlords and rogue states.

But while they plot their moves and hide their secrets, they may find that they themselves are pawns in a much larger, more ancient game.

  • Suggestions for props, costumes, and atmospheric effects.
  • World-spanning conspiracies.
  • 42 Pre-generated characters, each packing hidden agendas and deadly secrets
