Impressions on The Secret Files of Section D - Taster Edition

 The Secret Files of Section D - Taster Edition has just debuted!

It is the free, introductory pdf to the upcoming Secret Files of Section D setting for Savage Worlds, soon to launch for crowdfunding.

I'm very happy to say Allan Wroe passed me the file a couple weeks ago, so here's a short review and my overall impressions.

First of all, we're talking about a nice 90+ pages pdf, with a nice, retro-style layout and lots of art.

Here's a bit from the Introduction, explaining what Section D is and what the game is about:

So what have we've got here? A pulp-era, historically accurate, unconventional espionage setting where heroes punch Nazis, face supernatural mysteries and investigate dark conspiracies, and all of that in a very British, adventurous but also humorous flavor.

Here's another snip from the pdf, showing you a nice piece of art, a new action-oriented Setting Rule, and a cool quote. 

Beside describing the setting, the Taster Edition PDF offers a few examples of setting rules, new Edges and Hindrances, and new gear, focusing on spy gadgets as they were in the 1930s.

And then there's "Trouble in Tripoli", which is a HUGE three-act adventure, complete with pre-made characters and an incredible amount of maps. Of course I'm not going to spoil it here. The adventure begins as an investigation into an unusual robbery at the British Museum, but evolves into an action-packed scenario that will see the agents visit several exotic locations and face some incredible villains.

The setting and adventure look really fun to me. Download the Taster Edition see for yourself!
