Crafty Games Partners with Pen & Paper Games

By on 11 July 2009


The Home Office – known to some by its official front, Crafty Games – is pleased to announce that it’s brokered a partnership with Pen & Paper Games (PPG) to provide a secure location for field operatives needing to contact other agents in or near their vicinity. All operatives are encouraged to register their current location and cover identities with PPG at their earliest convenience. Agents should also be advised that this location has been deemed ripe for targeting potential recruits. Technical details follow…

One of the features Crafty gamers have sought for some time now is a player finder / game location database for Spycraft enthusiasts, and we believe we’ve finally found the ideal solution. Pen & Paper Games is the number one location for finding players and groups near you. It boasts a large and rapidly growing network of tabletop gamers, letting you quickly and easily locate nearby players and GMs with similar interests, preferences, and availability.

Also, Pen & Paper Games and Obsidian Portal recently teamed up to create the Lonely Gamer Network, a cool new feature that marries Obsidian Portal’s campaign management tools with PPG’s player matching services. The network includes your Obsidian Portal campaigns on the PPG Player Registry and optionally makes your profile available to GMs on the Obsidian Portal site who might be looking for players. This gives your PPG profile even more exposure, making it even easier to find a game.

So if you’re looking for a Spycraft game, or new players for your espionage outings, we recommend you check out Pen & Paper Games. When you register your profile, be sure to look for My Icon, which lets you use a special Crafty Games icon on the Player Registry Google Map. Proudly declare yourself a Spycraft Agent today!

Crafty Games was founded in 2005 by the creative team behind the popular Spycraft, Stargate SG-1, and Spycraft 2.0 roleplaying games. It offers an array of critically acclaimed gaming products in print and PDF. Its reputation for high-quality, engaging games has earned nominations for 5 EN World (ENnie) fan awards and the prestigious Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming. Crafty Games’ newest project, Fantasy Craft, is due out this fall. Find out more at

Pen & Paper Games opened in September 2006 with the mission of providing tabletop roleplayers the best tools possible to find nearby gamers. The site has since become the industry’s top online player-matching service with thousands of profiles and a host of gaming resources for roleplayers of all kinds, including private game hosting, play-by-post games, local area groups, and a diverse and friendly forum community.
