I am starting an eight week Covert Ops campaign at my local game club this Thursday (02/03/2017) and thought I would post a record of my experience here on the DWD forums. :D
I'm pretty sure that none of my players frequent this forum, but if they do stumble on this thread: PLEASE STOP READING. :P
I called the campaign 'Operation Black Lagoon' as it was originally inspired by elements of the Black Lagoon anime. Specifically, the two episodes wherein the Black Lagoon crew dive to a sunken Nazi u-boat to recover a lost painting and end up in conflict with a group of fanatical neo-Nazis.
The campaign involves recovering four paintings from around the world, which contain the secret to finding a lost Nazi laboratory where the Germans were working on a super weapon engineered from salvaged alien technology. Obviously, CITADEL is also looking for the paintings and will be competing with SECTOR to reach the lab first and recover the alien tech.
The first session (including character creation) is designed as a sort-of prequel adventure unrelated to the main campaign, to give the players a handle on the d100lite system, which none of them have used before (we usually play Savage Worlds, D&D5 & Pathfinder).
In the next post, I include the briefing notes for the prequel mission: OPERATION BROKEN KNUCKLE.
