Covert Ops - Core Rulebook (Softcover)

Softcover, B&W Book (6" x 9")

This is the softcover version of the Core Rulebook only. 

This softcover book contains the full contents of the Covert Ops Rulebook - more than 100 pages of espionage goodness!  If you are interested in purchasing the full digital download (which includes several products in one zip file) or the hardcover book which includes all three of the product's books in one, please go here: Core Product.  What follows is a description specific to this book only.  If you already purchased the hardcover book from the core product release, you do not need this softcover book.

Softcover Core Rulebook

This book may be small but the game is not.  Within these pages you’ll find all you need to create, play, and develop an operative:

  • 20 origins, each with several options, to help define what your character did before becoming an operative.
  • 10 skills representing archetypical modern character abilities: academic, detective, leader, martial artist, medic, pilot, scout, soldier, technician, and thief.
  • Robust system for equipping your operative for a mission, complete with weapons, defenses, gadgets, vehicles, simplified equipment packs, and more.
  • 32 martial arts maneuvers to fully define the fighting style of your operative.
  • System to create and maintain a base of operations for your team.
  • “Bones” (luck or hero points) integrated into this incarnation of the d00Lite system to add cinematic flair to your action scenes, certainly a must for proper representation of high action espionage adventure.
  • Rules for vehicles in combat and chase sequences.
  • A broad brush-stroke setting: SECTOR, a counter-intelligence and paramilitary organization devoted to fighting tyranny and other foes across the globe.
  • Systems to help the GM prepare for a session or an entire campaign: random master villain generator, enemy organization generator, henchmen generator, minions, security systems, and even entire random mission generation to get your creativity flowing.
NOTE: We already offer the digital download free of charge when you buy the all-in-one hardcover book, and wanted to provide the same option for those who prefer the softcover books individually. However, this site won't allow us to set things up that way. This is our work-around... If you buy all three softcover books (Core Rulebook, Game Master's Operations Manual, and The Usual Suspects), email us a picture of you holding them up to and we'll send you a complimentary coupon for the full product digital download.

"or roll 5D+30 four times. Arrange the scores as desired among your four abilities."

So i roll the dices and 30 to every dices number. and then i select the highest number for example: i rolled 5D and one of the numbers is 9 (90) and then i add 30 to it, that makes 120. i want to put that in DEX (dexterity). Is that right or im i wrong?

Roll 5D+30. That is, if you roll 5, 3, 7, 8, and 3 (a total of 26), add 30 means a score of 56.
Do that process four times to create four scores whose values will therefore range from 35 to 80 with a strong bell curve around the 55 range.
Put those four scores in any order among your four abilities.
Is that more clear?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
