Licensee Spotlight: The Secret Files of Section D

Published On: December 1, 2020Categories: News

Now on Kickstarter, The Secret Files of Section D is a Savage Worlds-powered, pulp-inspired, espionage roleplaying game from Ace license, Imaginarium Games.

This setting opens during the highly classified files of the British Secret Intelligence Service of the late 1930s. 

Players take on the roles of agents who have been recruited from all walks of life, to SIS Section D, for very specific purposes. As far as most civil servants and a select few public officials know, Section D’s mission is to gather intelligence on threats to the Empire and prepare for clandestine operations in the event of war.

Section D also has a much more secretive and dangerous agenda, though. 

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.

The British Government needs information on these phenomena and the Secret Intelligence Service has been tasked with gathering it!

Inside the core rulebook, you’ll find a Player’s Section containing:

  • An introduction to Section D and being an Agent
  • New Setting Rules
  • New Edges and Hindrances
  • New rules for Encryption and Code Breaking, Demolitions, and more
  • A detailed equipment section
  • A historically accurate guide to the major world powers at the beginning of 1938

Plus a Game Master’s Section featuring:

  • Guidelines for three unique campaign styles
  • A guide to creating master villains, their minions, and their amazing devices
  • Information on secret societies
  • A bestiary
  • Mission and McGuffin generator
  • Example “one-shot” adventures and adventure hooks

To get a taste of the setting, brew up a nice hot cuppa, head over to YouTube, and watch Secret Files of Section D creator Allan Wroe run members of our Con Crew through The Curse of the Undeaf where the heroes must stop a crop of spicy, pumpkin-headed scarecrows wreaking havoc in the English countryside on All Hallows Eve in 1940!

And if you’d like to take the setting for a spin yourself, download the FREE 99-page “Taster Edition” of the rules along with a character sheet and complimentary VTT Asset Pack, all available now from DriveThruRPG!
