Yes, I know I’ve ranted about about Eldritch Tales before. But for this spooky time of year, I want to take it one step further. I wanted to throw it in and make things like one of the most popular Cthulhu style campaigns. And that’s Delta Green.
Now I know that White Lies is more like James Bond than Fox Mulder. I get that. That’s what While Lies is. It’s a White Box take on the Espionage genre. And it’s a pretty good one. (I’ll do a more detailed review later.) Even though both games are “White Box” compatible, they handle skills in different ways (x ind 6 or Save as Skill). The easy way to pick the one you like and then do that little bit of conversion.
The other big difference is classes. White Lies is focused on the characters being secret agents not experts in Things Man Was Not Meant to Know. So in this case, I’d say combine bring in the Antiquarian from Eldritch Tales as a sort “Expert” class. Throw the in Sanity Mechanics and weird Lovecraftian bits. And boom, ready to save the world. And since you homebrewed, you did it your way.
