Federal Bureau of Investigation: Special Affairs
"And you will know the truth
And the truth will make you free."
ATTENTION ALL SPECIAL AFFAIRS AGENTS. THE FOLLOWING IS AN ENCODED
MESSAGE FROM CENTRAL ONE SIX NINER
Bowling balls and golf balls fall at the same speed in a vacuum. Nature
abhors a vacuum. Nature is a harsh mistress. My mistress' eyes are nothing
like the sun. The sun is a mass of incandescent gas. Inertia is a
property of mass. Stop.
I've unexpectedly reboot this game at very short notice. Let's see how it
fun with them. Hope you get as many campaign ideas from them as I did.
FBI-SAD Terminology. Some of the many terms used by the
real-life FBI and by the made-up Special Affairs Department.
TASK FORCE WATERMARK. The designation assigned to the
group of characters. Jump in and see what's what! My comments are in
very small print like this (sorry non-Netscapers...as soon as I
figure out a better way, I'll do it.). The most under-construction
part of the site.
Take the Special Affairs Department CIA QUIZ!
DISCLAIMER This site is a work of fiction. It has links to
real organizations on it. It makes references to real people. Sometimes
it even puts their pictures next to references to them. However, this
does not change the fact that this is a work of fiction. If they threaten
to sue me, I will take these pages down at once, or at least edit them
out. They did not, to my knowledge, do any of the things I ascribe them
to do. In fact, it is my belief that there are no such
things as extraterrestrials, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, mages,
Loch Ness Monsters, bigfeet, auras, Kirilian or otherwise, crystal powers,
pyramid powers, energy vortexes, space warps, alien abductions, alien
implants, efficient engines that run on seawater, CIA mind control
devices, psychic powers, precognition, Section Z of the CIA, the Special
Affairs Department of the FBI, or Santa Claus. It is therefore
no surprise to me that the government denies any
knowledge of them. I would, on the other hand, be
extremely surprised if the people I list on this site
even think about these things once in the context of
their professions, much less enter into the sort of grand, global
conspiracy that I describe.
So one last time for those who weren't paying attention the first time.
This is fiction. These people never did anything worse than turn
up on WWW sites, and I took them and made them into grey-moralled
spooks. I'm an unfair bastard, but I'm not ashamed. I've
painted these people no darker than historians have painted some very
innocent people, and I at least have the guts to come out and say that my
subject is fictional.
DISCLAIMER NUMERO TWO-O: While it is true that FBI hiring practices have
been blatantly discriminatory in the past (Hoover, who once had the final
say on all personnel matters, excluded not only women and Negroes, but
Jews as well), and that sexism continues to be a problem at many levels
of government, I would like to state for the record that my opinion is
that the federal government as a whole has been moving in the right
direction over the last few years, with the active recruitment of women
and minorities. However, in the game, I portray several aspects of the
government as retaining sexist and racist tendencies. This is with the
full knowledge (and even the suggestion of) my players. (They wanted the
Female 1-Point Flaw.) Again, this is not an accusation, nor a statement of
fact. It is a statement of fiction.
