Secret Agents Try to Outwit the Supernatural!
Bring a team, or show up solo. Up to 32 players will take part in an intense, intriguing two-part adventure in Kenneth Hite's incredible world of Secret Agents and Vampires!
The Cold War is over. Bush's War is winding down.
You were a shadowy soldier in those fights, trained to move through the secret world: deniable and deadly.
Then you got out, or you got shut out, or you got burned out. You didn't come in from the cold. Instead, you found your own entrances into Europe's clandestine networks of power and crime. You did a few ops, and you asked even fewer questions. Who gave you that job in Prague? Who paid for your silence in that Swiss account? You told yourself it didn't matter.
It turned out to matter a lot. Because it turned out you were working for vampires.
Vampires exist. What can they do? Who do they own? Where is safe? You don't know those answers yet. So you'd better start asking questions. You have to trace the bloodsuckers' operations, penetrate their networks, follow their trail, and target their weak points. Because if you don't hunt them, they will hunt you. And they will kill you.
Night's Black Agents brings the GUMSHOE engine to the spy thriller genre, combining the propulsive paranoia of movies like Ronin and The Bourne Identity with supernatural horror straight out of Bram Stoker. Investigation is crucial, but it never slows down the action, which explodes with expanded options for bone-crunching combat, high-tech tradecraft, and adrenaline-fueled chases.
This unique event will be run in two rounds by the game's designer, Kenneth Hite, assisted by John Adamus. Players can come for either, or both sessions. The first round is a LIVE ACTION session in which players portray agents, vampires, and the holders of the clues to a terrifying conspiracy. Surviving agents follow those clues to an explosive final tabletop round. Up to five winners (determined by survival and excellence) will receive FREE 2014 COMBO MEMBERSHIPS (METATOPIA 2013, DREAMATION 2014 and DEXCON 17).
