Sine Nomine Publishing has delivered another great supplement for Stars Without Number. This supplement provides statistics and backstory for espionage agencies and secret cabals in the Hydra sector. The rules used are from the new Darkness Visible supplement, which provides the systems needed to run espionage campaigns. This nicely complements the way that Skyward Steel provided background and materials for running an interstellar naval campaign.
Kevin Crawford is a great story teller, and the strength of this (yet again, generously free!) supplement is the story ideas. The settings, characters and organisations are vividly described. I am using my own sector to run a SWN campaign for my kids and one of their friends, and I am finding all of the materials Sine Nomine is putting out extremely useful in adding new aspects to the campaign; the material is easy to freely lift out and plonk down in your own setting.
I fell in love with Stars Without Number on my first reading of the free edition core rulebook, and it continues to enthrall me.
