Violation of Truth: 2D6 Adventure in a World of Spies and Secrets

Watermarked PDF

“Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

As long as there have been people, there have been secrets. And as long as there have been secrets, there have been those whose mission is to discover those secrets. Espionage is the practice of gaining information without the consent — or preferably knowledge — of the information’s owner. Thanks to popular media, intelligence agents (also known as operatives or spies) are presented as dashing, resourceful, hypercharged superheroes, capable of breathtaking feats of derring-do and seduction in the pursuit of information or larger-than-life villains. In reality, the life of an agent is rarely one of guns, tuxedos and car chases; most real-life spies report that the tradecraft (the practices and tools of espionage) is actually one of patience, lots of talking to various people, and above all not being noticed. Now 2D6 players can operate in the shadowy world of intelligence gathering and espionage. Violation of Truth is an RPG supplement based on the Mongoose 1st Edition 2D6 OGL system (which is itself based on The Original Science-Fiction Roleplaying Game first published in the 1970s) and adapted to create heroes and adventures suitable for an espionage campaign. The system takes a back seat to Referee and player creativity, allowing them to craft the missions they want within a framework of minimal rules. Nine distinctive Disciplines are offered within the category or one career: Agent. Also offered are rules for building a network of contacts; adapting the rules for use during career generation; additional skills; expanded equipment and vehicle lists; and a discussion of integrating martial arts into the game, using a stripped-down version of 2D6 Martial Arts.

Violation of Truth: live a life of lies to get at the truth of what the enemy is doing.

(The first page of the file is the cover; the last page is the OGL, for four pages of content.)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
