When the Cops Just Won't Do.
In New Hope City PI you’re a Private Investigator. When the cops won’t do, they hire you. If you want to be a Police Detective instead, you can still use these rules. In fact you can use these rules for investigating in any gaming period, with any Two Hour Wargames rules.
As a PI you’ll be offered a variety of Crimes to solve from Robbery to Murder. The way to solve a Crime is to find a certain number of Clues based on how difficult the Case is. The more difficult the Case the more Clues you need to find. This can be either finding an Object or Questioning a Person of Interest.
Sounds simple enough but you’ll be facing twists and turns as you’ll be moving through all the levels of society in New Hope City, from the Movers and Shakers to the Criminal Element as well.
Inside you’ll find:
The 5150 Basic Sci Fi Combat rules making this a standalone game.
Details on five types of Crimes and how they differ.
A system to generate and solve Clues, based on your Character's abilities.
Eleven different neighborhoods to adventure in plus a Transit System to move from area to area seamlessly.
