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.
This week I’ve got a small update for ACE. Since we’re only starting to follow the content release schedule this month, I’m going to finally get around to a minor thing about ACE that had been a pretty obvious exploit and needed to be snipped.
Specifically I’m talking about a higher rank agent sharing gear with lower level ones, or taking gear from the armory specifically to hand it to the other players. Like most ACE rules, this one can be more like a guideline if other GMs don’t mind the gear sharing. But for those of you who might feel like it’s a cheap exploit, now you have a solid written out.
This will be the last minor update for ACE before it receives the major supplemental update next week officially jumping to ACE v2.0, so keep in touch, you won’t want to miss that.
You’re free to download, distribute, share, and play ACE as much as you want. You are NOT free to edit or alter ACE in any way without Archfossil permission. If you have suggestions to change the game, use the contact page and let me know.
If you’d like to stay in the know, and like to keep Archfossil going, why not give to the Archfossil Patreon? You’d receive updates on games each month and supplemental additions before anyone else, and you’d be helping me give to the RPG community.
