Following up on what Roberto had told her, Elisha left Rome and headed for her home town, Hong Kong.  It hadn’t been long since last she’d visited, and she still had both friends and relatives here.  Usually Elisha would take the time to visit but this time was business, she had work to do.

Before leaving Rome she’d put in a request for information on the banker, Donna Giaccone.  The money aspect of the case seemed to be growing in importance all the time.  If it was important enough to cost Roberto his life, it was very important indeed. Which made the banker all the more interesting to Elisha.  She received her response just before boarding the flight from Rome. (more…)

With Royal Sanction - movie stillBack in London, Elisha was called to M’s office. She passed through the outer office, giving Moneypenny a quick hello before entering through the leather door airlock into the inner sanctum. Closing the doors behind her, she knew M would switch on the light above the door; the one that meant he was not to be disturbed.

Inside, M looked up from the folder he was reading as Elisha entered.

“Ah, 001, good.” He closed the file and pushed it aside. “Have a seat.”

Maggie Q as 001This is a game played out with the old James Bond 007 rules from Victory Games.  I found my rulebook a while back and was inspired to try a game out with it.

The game starts with a random location and mission, as is usual for a good James Bond film.  The main character (heck, the only character) is Elisha Zheng, 001, a Hong Kong born model turned agent for Her Majesty’s Secret Service.  I see her as being played by Maggie Q maybe, or Cecilia Cheung, either one is good by me .

Last time, the agents had been questioning the rescued hostages, when they were interrupted by the sound of automatic gunfire…

The passengers and crew all duck down while Proulx kills the lights.  As may have been predicted, Maggie the cruise director starts screaming.  It takes Drake a few seconds to get to her and shut her up again, but this time Isadore heard them.

Proulx opens the door a crack and looks out into the darkened dining room.  He creeps out carefully and puts some distance between the galley and himself, all the while crouching down between the chairs.

Last time the agents had taken out one of the hostage holders, and burst in on the other…

The shouting starts.

Biggs: Freeze, drop it, drop it now.
Drake: Down, down on the floor, everyone down.
Benito (Terrorist): Back off, I’ll shoot, I’ll shoot. (while pointing his shotgun at the hostages)

Picking up where we left off, Drake had just rescued the ship’s doctor from a terrorist who was holding her hostage and forcing her to work on a patient.

The doctor quickly explains that she’s been held here for several hours since the ship was taken by the terrorists.  The patient on the table is also a terrorist who was injured during the takeover by one of the crewmen (he used a fire axe).  He won’t be waking up anytime soon but likely won’t die either.  Drake zip ties him to the bed and questions the doctor on what she knows about the virus.  Unfortunately she knows nothing.  She does reveal, however, that the terrorists have herded the remaining crew  and passengers into the private dining room off the main dining room and have them there under guard.  The doctor does not know if Dr Salcedo is among them.

So this is my shot at running through the Top Secret module TS-003 “Lady In Distress”.  I set out to run virtual players through as the GM.  In the end (or rather from the beginning really) I sort of half played, half GMed.  And you know what?  It was awesome!  I was able to seperate my GM knowledge from my character knowledge and somehow it worked.  And with key questions, I just referred back to Mythic.  It was lots of fun.  I’m not sure how it would work for something that wasn’t a dungeon crawl with pistols, but I’m very tempted to find out!

Here now, the Lady In Distress:
