How Was I to Know She Was with the Russians Too

Continuing my tribute to TSR's Top Secret, I thought I'd post something a little newer: a recent character sheet.

This one's not for original Top Secret, however; it's for that game's worthy descendant, Top Secret/S.I. Unlike most official character sheets for the games I play, I never felt the need to improve upon TSR's Top Secret agent dossier. It did what it needed to do, and did it well, IMHO. (I've got two sets of the original TSR dossiers, but if you're not so lucky, Mad Irishman has a faithful recreation available in PDF.)

Such was not the case with TSR's official Top Secret/S.I. sheet/folder. It was adequate, but it seemed to me that there was a lot of wasted space in the folder. So, here's a more compact character sheet for the game:

  1. Just reading a post about Top Secret makes me want to break out my old TS game. Damn!

    Never did get the SI version, though.

  2. So, what are you waiting for? Break that bad boy out already! ;D

    While Top Secret oozes that old-school charm with its 70's-era gritty spy vibe and wacky subsystems and tables, TSSI has a more suave 80's sensibility (and user-friendly nature) about it. They're both great games, IMHO.

  3. I'm feeling an intense and perhaps short obsession for TSSI coming on!
