"SO HOW DO I PLAY?"
There are three types of Environments: (t)raining, (a)ction, and (l)ocation. (See letter before each name in list on left)
Training locations bring the "roll the dice and add" character skill generation process to life (e.g., you learn how to shoot by firing guns in a shooting range environment while an instructor makes cold remarks about your mother to the back of your head).
Action environments are short bursts of combat, chases, etc., that can be used during the course of a larger mission (which you may be playing on or off line). Sure, these are more fun when an Administrator is rolling dice and shaking his head while you talk, but Administrators are hard to come by these days. Maybe I'll make a Java Administrator who can insult you and laugh while you play...
Location environments include Orion offices, famous landmarks, or generic locations that can be used as part of an adventure you are already playing, or as part of an online adventure such as those that will be run at this site. In some, players can have their own offices, complete with message boards and inventory storage.
"But what the heck is Top Secret/S.I.?"
Top Secret/S.I. is a really great roleplaying system designed by TSR. The mechanics are pretty easy to master, but the game is really dynamic and allows fast, realistic roleplay of everything from science fiction to fantasy to--ironically enough--espionage, which the system was originally designed for. For some odd reason, TSR discontinued the system in the early 90s. But it's coming back on the net!!!
Actually, there is a site on the net that already has most of the Top Secret/S.I. rules posted. This site may have to come down sooner or later due to a lawsuit or something, but until then... http://www.homeusers.prestel.co.uk/lgdspace/TopSecret.htm.
