Broken Shield RPG

By on 10 July 2013

The Broken Shield Roleplaying Game is an exciting game of espionage and investigation set in London – the faded heart of the vast and ancient Steel Alliance. The Broken Shield Roleplaying game is based on the exciting world of the Agency Case File novels by Gunnar Roxen.

With this core book you can:

  • Play Echoes like John Aries, superhumans whose power is only limited by how fast you want to burn up their life… or play Slivers like Lovelace, genetically-enhanced to be faster, stronger and deadlier!
  • Create a hard-boiled Investigations Agent, engage in high-tech espionage as a Covert Operative or bring justice as a steely Agency Marshal!
  • Explore the palatial highs and depraved lows of sci-fi London, crux of the vast interstellar Steel Alliance!
  • Worship your chosen Disciple – god-like beings who left their indelible mark on humanity and then disappeared!
  • Stick to what you know as a stock human, or bring out the alien in you with a new sub-species: the iconic Pures, tough Hulks, or supremacist Gethans!
  • Generate unique and memorable characters with a powerful character history and plot path system!
  • Use the Echo Wheel, a revolutionary fast paced and powerful system to reshape reality!
  • Powered by the Broken Shield Engine, a unique system tailor-made for the universe!

The Broken Shield Roleplaying Game is your gateway to an exciting new world of adventure!

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 dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
