Covert Wars

Watermarked PDF

Covert Wars is a Tabletop Role-Playing Game that takes place during one of humanity’s most difficult (and interesting) periods: the Cold War. The world is divided into two blocks; the West, led by the United States of America, and the East, headed by the Soviet Union.

In Covert Wars, one player takes the role of the Supervisor while the rest play as agents working for their chosen side (or even one of the few neutral countries!). As an elite CIA or KGB agent, players take part in perilous missions of sabotage, espionage, assassination and more! To survive and even better, succeed, players must use all the tools at their disposal (including spy gadgets such as the Glove Pistol, the classic Minox Camera, or even the Fountain Pen Gun) and trick, fight, cheat or seduce their way to victory.

In many ways, Covert Wars is a traditional RPG, with standard stats (Strength, Constitution, Dexterity, Intelligence, Will, charisma) and skills (Conceal, Cryptography, Melee Combat, Persuasion, and many more), but we felt the setting needed something unique to reflect the life as a secret agent in a world on the brink of annihilation. This is why we introduced several unique mechanics, such as Conviction(how much will your faith in the cause waiver after seeing the measures your side takes in order to succeed?), Connections (links with outside sources, be they governmental officials, gang bosses, or even an old flame that now works for a diplomat), and Stress (will you hold being interrogated, or will you break?). and All these make Covert Wars the perfect introduction to role-playing during these turbulent times. With a detailed character creation and lots of tools for the Supervisor to create new and exciting operations (Technology acquisition, Infiltration, Kidnapping, Assassination, and many more), you’ll be playing in a matter of hours. And who knows, maybe you'll end up in a bad situation and forced to act as a double agent!

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.
