Secrets of A.E.G.I.S.: A Masks Supplement


A.E.G.I.S., the Advanced Expert Group for Intervention and Security, is the premiere superhero law enforcement agency in all of Halcyon City. Its power is enormous; its actions, dangerous; its goals, secret. The agency is both respected and feared in equal measure.

Now their secrets are laid bare for you. Cracked files, mission reports, and more await you within…

Secrets of A.E.G.I.S. is a sourcebook for the roleplaying game Masks: A New Generation that fleshes out the metahuman covert law enforcement agency, A.E.G.I.S., with new details and new ways to play the game.

Masks: A New Generation is an ENnie-award winning superhero roleplaying game in which a team of young heroes fights villains, saves lives, and tries to figure out who they are—noble paragons? Dark avengers? Or regular kids? All against the backdrop of Halcyon City, the greatest city in the world and home to the Advanced Expert Group for Intervention and Security—A.E.G.I.S.

In Secrets of A.E.G.I.S., you’ll find everything you need to play a Masks game centered around A.E.G.I.S. and the myriad conflicts that superhuman law enforcement brings.

In this book, you get:

  • Classified files from A.E.G.I.S.’s servers detailing a wide array of important incidents and individuals

  • Two new playsets designed to help you play Masks in brand new ways—from playing agents of A.E.G.I.S. to playing the resistance to a covert alien invasion

  • Two new limited edition playbooks to add to your game of Masks, along with advice for using them in your game

Does your team of heroes have what it takes to delve into the deepest, darkest secrets of A.E.G.I.S.? Time to find out.

Is there going to be a PoD version at any point?

Hey Amy!

We do not have a PoD version, but you can get a print copy from the Magpie website.

Funny, the "American Elite Government Intervention Service" is also the SHIELD stand-in in Mutants and Masterminds.

I'm not accusing anyone of a rip off here - both games are obviously drawing on the same source material. I just find the parallel amusing.

For a REALLY offball campaign, read all the bits about other-dimensional travel and parallel worlds, and assume it's the same organisation...

AEGIS is also the SHIELD stand-in and superhero database in Amazon Prime's The Tick. It's a very popular name, apparently.

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.
