The Secret Files of Section D

Watermarked PDF

The Secret Files of Section D is a Savage Worlds powered, pulp action Roleplaying Game, exploring the highly classified files of the British Secret Intelligence Service.

Formed in 1938, SIS Section D is a clandestine operations division officially tasked with gathering intelligence on Fascist and Bolshevik powers in Europe. Unofficially, there are much greater threats to the Empire, and even the world. 

Nazi Pseudo-Science is real, magic is real, and miracles happen. Aliens have not only visited Earth; some are still here. Atlantis didn’t sink into the sea, it flew away. A long, long way away. Yetis and Sasquatch stalk high mountains while the ancient beast beneath Loch Ness gets careless in her old age and was photographed in 1934. Secretive and sinister organizations influence the world, politically and financially, without holding power anywhere, and ancient pharaohs were buried deep for a reason.

Section D agents ultimately become embroiled in adventures and plots deeper, and more fantastic, than it is deemed safe to tell the general public.

Welcome to:

I followed the KS, and the author's hard work getting this out to us. A very good addition to SW settings, full of detail, and a great value for the money. If you don't mind getting a little dry British humor in your spycraft, this is your book!

Hi Bob,
At present there are no plans for a POD version of this particular book. There will however be an offset print run in the near future. I'll be posting an announcement soon so these can be ordered via the Backerkit for the KS project. You can keep up with announcements by following The Secret Files of Section D on Facebook, and / or joining the Section D Headquarters channel on Discord.
There will also be a set of adventures for Section D along quite quickly and I plan to have POD versions of those though maybe not in the first instance.

File Size:
117.52 MB
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.
