Teams of Secret Agents Try to Outwit the Supernatural!
Bring your team, or join one on site. Up to six teams of five players each will take part in an intense, intriguing 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 by the game's designer, Kenneth Hite, assisted by John Adamus. Each of the teams will represent a different clandestine organization and will play in a preliminary round in which any of their members could die at any time. Survivors will represent their team in the explosive final round in which the the answers to the riddles of the game will earn points. The winning team (even if represented by just one player) will receive $1,000 in CASH ($200 per player).
