The Agency • A World of Adventure for Fate Core

Suggested Price €4,66


Greetings, Agents. You are all dead.

Welcome to the Agency, a sophisticated espionage organization founded by [REDACTED]. Unfortunately, most of our Field Agents have been neutralized by [REDACTED]. Luckily, the Agency has prepared for this very situation with countless hours of data collection and Digital Personality Encoding, and we can now program latent Field Agent subroutines into our new recruits.

You are one of these civilians: a normal person in search of money, adventure, or fame, with multiple Field Agents hanging out in your brain. Will you succeed in your mission? Find out in The Agency, a Fate World of Adventure by Tracy Barnett.

The Agency requires Fate Core to play. This 34-page supplement includes:

  • True “super-agent” characters, where each of the Field Agent Inserts contributes knowledge and actions within a single confrontation
  • A focus on interaction between the Civilian and their Inserts designed to create interesting roleplay opportunities between each of the personalities
  • Skill sets, gear ideas, and character creation guidelines for espionage stories in Fate
  • A streamlined system to create your evil mastermind or organization, along with a sample organization
  • A complete sample adventure: Three Minutes from Midnight

Welcome (back) to the Agency.

The Fate Adventures & Worlds line provides compact, rich, affordable, gorgeous settings with a ready-to-go adventure for GMs in a pinch. Buy one this afternoon, be ready to run this evening.

Is it just me or is the character creation chapter missing a few important things? The book states "Gear is covered more thoroughly in ..." and "Don’t worry, each FAI has their own pool of fate points, too." but in the mentioned chapter there is nothing more than two gear stunt suggestions (nothing regarding non gear related stunts) and nothing about the refresh rate or the number of stunts for a FAI. :(

Fair critique. Unfortunately I think this is one of those cases where the budget's impact on the wordcount cap meant some things didn't get more developed. (We make very little profit on these PWYW worlds, in the grand scheme.)

I totally understand and I am not mad about it. I would have liked something on the lines of "Damn, that part was cut out unintentionally, we're updating it right away", though. ;)
As a total Fate nerd I will do what I like most: Build something that will fit me and my players the most.

The notion of implanting the engram of "Bond. James Bond." in the cerebral cortex of "Mrs. Pennywacker, from Accounting" is just too good to pass up! (I think that's Mrs. Pennywacker depicted in the cover art.)

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.
