Welcome to the world of Covert Missions, Black Operations and Kill Orders.
 
You are a member of an elite team of special operatives, enlisted from the world’s best special forces units, to work for a new private military force, that does not recognise borders and is not funded by just one government, but all of them.
 
Your missions will take you to the streets of the USA and Western and Eastern Europe, the mountains of South America, the Jungles of Africa and the deserts of the Middle East. You will tackle drug cartels, organised crime, private militia, corrupt governments and terrorist cells.
 
The game is based on the modern world, but we include help on setting missions in the past like World War 2, Vietnam or even trying your team with the Iranian Embassy siege of the 80’s, or you can set the game in the future after an apocalypse, or invasion of the country you live in. The possibilities are endless.
 
Inside you will find rules for:
 

Creating Operatives from 13 different countries and over 20 different SpecOps units.
K9 Companions
Buying and upgrading Safehouses.
Bullet Time
Rules for running Hearts and Minds missions
And Much More...
 
So, gather your Squad and grab that kill order, the world is a bad place and you have work to do.


The Ghost Ops RPG uses Fudge Dice at its core, but this is neither a Fudge or Fate Core game, but does use some elements from both and adds a whole new heap of stuff to make this a fun, action-packed game of Covert Ops.

Quick ammo type question: Is there a mechanical benefit to hollow points I'm missing? Because it a glance, it seems most calibres of hollowpoint ammo share damage numbers with the standard (hollowpoint) and FMJ (hollowpoint +) rounds. I presume they do more damage to lightly armored targets or something of the sort, but I don't see anything in the core book at a glance.

For now, in the absence of an official reply, my house rule is that hollowpoints do more damage but have a lower PL. Will keep checking in for an official take.

Hi, Yeah they will do more damage to lightly armoured targets, I'm sure this is mentioned somewhere, I will check and if not I will add it to Expanded 3. Thanks for your question.

On a deeper look, it seems it works this way for rifle rounds, but not handgun rounds. It could be errata, perhaps.

Quick question regarding LMGs and the ammo rules: What's the point of a belt fed LMG or anything with a larger capacity for that matter? Ammo isn't tracked by bullet, so why would anyone bother using an LMG as the rules are written? Am I missing a rule somewhere in the book?
Customer avatar
Jay L February 16, 2019 9:53 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
There is an ammo tracker on the character sheet and the LMG is affected by those rules, Rates of fire on pg112. Its also worth checking out the Expanded books as we are adding new optional rules via those all the time, maybe you could come up with something and let me know and I will include them :)

This looks interesting for sure, but it sort looks like a reboot with a different setting and renaming etc., of Millennium End.

Nope, wasn't Milleniums End more black ops, splinter cell? This is very much special ops with a different rule system. Its kinda like saying that Runequest is a reboot of D&D with a different setting and renaming.

You should probably read your description again...it describes it as former military now in the private sector with a black ops outfit and that is the frame work and schematic of ME.

Technically it's not private sector. It's more like a UN force if anything. It says the group is funded "not only by one nation, but all of them". In other words, you're working for a coalition of several nations, all of whom fund the outfit.

It's a weird grey area thing.

Will there be any sourcebooks for WW2 in the future?
Customer avatar
Jay L August 10, 2018 3:22 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
That could be a possibility as I have been asked for that a few times as well as a future sourcebook. At the moment I am concentrating on getting out the sourcebooks that were unlocked during the Kickstarter. So you never know.

Hello,

What is the difference between this and the early access version?
Customer avatar
Jay L August 08, 2018 9:18 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
If you got the early access version then you do not need this. All updates are also done on the early access as well.

This file only contains blast templates and character sheets. There are no rules for Creating Operatives, K9 Companions, Buying and upgrading Safehouses, etc. Please correct this asap. Thanks.

Well that was weird, but fixed now. Sorry about that not sure what happened there at all.

Format
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.
