Siren’s Song

Date Line: Tuesday, 20th December, 901 SD. 5pm. The day the rain stopped.

The screen hisses…. white noise…. meaningless static on every single channel in the WoP…. then after what seems like an eternity, the screen flickers to life….. a harshly lit interior, plain background, like a hospital room…. then the unmistakable voice of Mr. Slayer….

“My fellow citizens, my children…. nothing lasts forever. Nothing it seems, except betrayal. Senti is dead. More will follow. Be prepared.”
The screen flicks back to normal programming, leaving in it’s wake a stunned silence from all who have witnessed this scything announcement…. as if nothing has happened…. as if nothing will be the same again….

A squad is needed to undertake a BPN. Nothing too dangerous. Nothing too complicated. A good chance to earn some easy cred’s with no fuss and minimal danger.

Unfortunately not your squad.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
