Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes now available in PDF (Tunnels & Trolls meets James Bond)

If ever there was a game that I regret never having played, its Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes. I own the boxed set and I've been psyched for YEARS to play it, but alas. it simply hasn't happened. I can say the same about Tunnels & Trolls itself, but at least there are a ton of solo adventures your can use with T&T. Heck, there are a ton of solos I've soloed ;)

Still, any game written by Michael Stackpole is probably going to be good. This is no exception. Now to dig my boxed set out of storage.

The PDF of Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes is $6.95 at OBS. Print copies are available at the Flying Buffalo site for 10 bucks.

edit - there IS a MS&PE solo adventure! Need to snag it.

edit2 - MS&PE is currently the #2 best seller at RPGNow


  1. Shows that the T&T system is fairly universal and can be used to run other genres. I've always wanted to use the MSPE system to run a pulp heroes campaign.

  2. Fun fact: MSPE was used as the basis for the 1988 Wasteland RPG, the predecessor to the Fallout series.

  3. That's very cool, i've been curious about this one since back in the day. I think i stuck with FGU's Daredevils myself.

    What i'd really love is a pdf of the Justice Inc game, a pulp campaign based on the Champions system. A related product was the awesome Lands of Mystery supplement by Aaron Allston.

  4. We got hundreds of hours of entertainment out of this game!

  5. Right now we are having a Kickstarter for the print version of MSPE. THis one combines all the material from the two different version of the rules into one book, plus we're adding a couple of things here and there.
