Night’s Black Agents: Solo Ops

You used to be a spy. You were part of the clandestine world, backed up by the full strength of the shadow state. Then you asked the wrong questions, discovered things you shouldn’t know about who really rules the world.

You found the truth. You found the vampires – and got burned.

You’re all alone against them.

One player. One Gamemaster.

The odds are against you. You’ll have to use every edge you can muster, every contact you can blackmail, every weapon you can find just to survive. But maybe, just maybe, you can fight back against the monsters.

Create your own Agent, or take on the role of Leyla Khan – an ex-MI6 officer who must confront her own half-remembered past as a thrall of the vampires!

Use the GUMSHOE One-2-One rules, designed for the thrilling intensity of head-to-head play. Navigate complex mysteries with investigative abilities! Overcome challenges with luck and mastery edges! And if you fail, pick up Injury, Heat and Shadow problems that’ll cause trouble later on.

Play through three complete adventures for Leyla Khan, or use them as templates to create your own mysteries:

  • Never Say Dead: Leyla wakes up in a hospital with only fragmentary memories of her past life. She was left for dead at the side of the road. Who’s trying to kill her? Who’s trying to save her? Who can she trust?
  • No Grave For Traitors: A drug war in Spain. Mysterious intrigue in London. Haunted castles in the Carpathians. Can Leyla unravel the mystery that connects these events, and stop her rivals from unlocking the door to an ancient horror?
  • The Deniable Woman: Leyla’s tasked by her old allies at MI6 to investigate the disappearance of a British spy in Moscow. Can she find the missing man – or will she, too, vanish into the shadows of the Kremlin?

We’ll give you the tools you need to battle the undead princes and crime lords, all alone. But will it be enough? Find out, with Night’s Black Agents: Solo Ops!

    Buy! OMG BUY!

  2. Brad Clark says:

    Ok I want this yesterday!!! :)

  3. Johan says:

    So are the scenarios _designed_ for the pre-made character, the way (I assume) Cthulhu Confidential’s are? Or is it just a pre-made that should fit but isn’t massively integrated?

    Hoping for the former, but either way, really looking forward to it!

    • Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan says:

      The scenarios are designed for the pre-made character. However, it’s easier to strip or repurpose a Night’s Black Agents scenario for another character than it is a Cthulhu Confidential character, as regardless of your precise circumstances, you’re always playing a badass ex-spy vampire hunter of some description.

    Any news on NBA one-2-one release date?
    Also, are you planning to publish Dracula Dossier for one-2-one version?
    If no, will DD be still playable in solo version?

  8. Lex says:

    Any news so far? Any chance of playtesting? Would kill for even a small preview.

  9. David says:

    Just wanted to chime in that I’m interested in a 1-on-1 version of NBA also, keep up the good work guys!

  10. marcin says:

    I know I am boring, but maybe any updates? :)

  11. Claudia says:

    If you release this on the 17th of October, you’ll be giving me the best birthday gift ever, just saying.

    Also, will there be a “limited edition” version of it like there was for Cthulhu Confidential?

    (Please say yes. I’m a sucker for limited editions)

    • Colleen Riley says:

      There will probably be a limited edition. We’ll announce more info regarding types of editions later.

  12. Michael P says:

    Any updates on a release date for NBA Solo Ops? Thanks!

    • Colleen Riley says:

      It is currently on schedule to be released in February but as we get closer to then, we’ll keep you updated via See Page XX.

      • Michael P says:

        Thanks for the update on the expected release. Do you have an estimate on cost so I can save up my pennies! :)

        • Colleen Riley says:

          Printing prices have increased and we don’t know the final page count yet so unfortunately, we don’t have an estimated price yet. We’ll announce it as soon as we do though.

  13. Ana S says:

    Any indication if there will be a limited edition for this?

  14. J. Morgan says:

    Pre-ordered! Been looking forward to this and the Preview PDF does not disappoint. Awesome to see One-2-One expanding. Is there a timeline for when the print books might ship?

  15. Geoff Skellams says:

    Are there any plans to create a one-on-one version of Ashen Stars?

    • Cat Tobin says:

      Hey Geoff, we have far too many ideas for One-2-One – which includes an Ashen Stars one – and unfortunately, not enough time to do them all! It’s on the list, but it might not happen soon.

  16. Jim Overton says:

    Will the stand-alone PDF go on sale once the books have shipped?
