What is ACE?
ACE is an international agency that operates in environments both openly hostile and clandestine. ACE is a third party spy network with elite operatives and a web of connections spanning the entire world. Basically if a problem is large enough to
force the inclusion of ACE, it is on an apocalyptic scale.
ACE Agents are international players in the field of espionage. Allied with no country, their work benefits the entire world rather than a single nation. Acting as allies with other intelligence agencies, ACE agents focus on areas that require the help of
a third party rather than problems that can be solved internally. However the case for new and young recruits is often different, with them being tossed into less world-shattering problems so that they may become more venerable.
Perhaps due to their status as non-government and non-affiliated making ACE Agents seem expendable to outside agencies, or perhaps because of the reputation of ACE Agents capabilities, agencies that work with ACE have a tendency to put any ACE
Agents into the worst situations. Generally this equals a very low survivability rate. This has cultivated a “golden rule” among ACE Agents.
Hope for the best, expect the worst.
The first update for ACE is here. Fixing a lot of the weird errors and inconsistencies and making some statements a little clearer. The game should be much easier to understand and use now.
AND I MADE A LOGO!
In case you’re not playing ACE, I’ll have you know, you don’t have much to lose. The game is completely free, 14 pages long and gives you all the tools you need to run an exciting Mission Impossible style RPG (with as little or as much Tom Cruise as you see fit.)
Because the ‘update’ is more like a patch and really didn’t add anything other than a few fixes, a table of contents, and a logo, I’ve removed the old link and I’m posting the new one here.
RPG a Month #1 – ACE
(The updated version is posted and made this one obsolete. Look for it here.)
If you’re so inclined to show your appreciation and keep me, and Archfossil going, then check out our Patreon. This is my current full-time occupation and it’s not pulling that much in, so everything helps and is really appreciated. And you’ll get to see game updates and next months RPG early, so there’s something special in it for you too!
