Dash through crowed streets, careen around corners in high-speed chases, skulk in dark alleys, hack into secure files, infiltrate enemy agencies - Enter the world of a secret agent! Classified is a retro-clone of the 1980’s role-playing game about the world’s most-famous spy. Classified is the action-packed game of covert operations that maintains the flavor of cold war spy-mongering while set in the modern day. Style and substance, baby, style *and* substance.

Look for adventure support from Operation Rogue Lion: the first Classified Mission!

OGL Type-O. "All text in this work is Opegn Game Content, excepting
the term Classified and Expeditious Retreat Press,
logos, artwork, and author and artist names." You do not have Opegn anything. Type-os in legal documents are something I thought you should know.

In snarky internet comments, however, typos abound.

Great game. I have the softcover. All of the class of the original, with a few gentle updates. Any chance we will see more missions? The Bucharest Libretto, perhaps?

I've got about 1/2 of it written, but right now no plans to finish. Perhaps after Arden Vul (the megadungeon that I'm putting out next year) is done, I could look into it.

Ah, well, perhaps someday. Thank you for the response, and thanks for making this awesome updating of JB007!

Still hoping The Bucharest Libretto sees publication sometime. If not, hey, such is life. I really dig what you've done with the classic spy RPG. I imagine you have your hands full right now. Congrats on Arden Vul, by the way.

Is it "compatible" with the old James Bond 007 game?
I have a few free adventures för James Bond at 4eyes,

I'm a huge fan of your game and had a question.

Have you ever considered taking submissions of content and modules for Classified the way you do for your OSR products?

I've run this game and it's ancestor on and off for well over 12 years now and have assembled much in the way of research, adventures and homebrew equipment. If you have no intentions of doing such a thing what would be the requirements for releasing this content on my own free of charge for fans of the game?

Thank you for any answers and bringing back this remarkable gem of a game.

Nathaniel, I'm always willing to look over material for possible publication. Please e-mail at for additional discussion.

I snagged a copy of this at my local store when I saw it on the shelf. Question I have is do I need to buy the pdf if I want a soft copy?

I bought this at my FLGS, so I have the softcover. I'm really digging this game -- I can see why its progenitor is so treasured.

If I have any quibble, it's that the game's most important tables are spread throughout the book, and thus unwieldy to reference in play. It'd be swell to see said tables collected on a reference sheet or two.

Other'n that...aces!

Any chance of a pdf character sheet being made available soon?

There's a character sheet and some sample PCs in this free download. Hope you enjoy the game!

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.
