THE SLY LIFE

WELCOME TO THE AGENCY


Your character works for a freelancing spy agency located on a private island in the Bahamas (part of the legendary Bermuda Triangle) where you character not only works but also lives.  The agency is not allied with any particular country or political view point.  They do the work that they're paid for.  Sometimes this is good, and other times this is bad.  This agency is highly sought out because of the well trained agents, as well as their unique abilities.  These abilities range from language and fighting skills to the obscure and supernatural.  Enter a world where nothing is as it seems.

Please note that when constructing your character that there are multiple different jobs that spies can do, and office jobs, town jobs, etc.  Your character does not have to be able to 'do it all'.  If you'd prefer a character who is called out on the field less often, that's completely okay.  If you want your character to get a lot of action, that's alright too.  If you'd like your character to get no action on the field, that's also okay.

The following are resources to help inspire and inform.


WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A SPY


When you think of working as an intelligence agent, the Mission Impossible movies come to mind and you may secretly dream about the action, investigations, unraveling huge conspiracy plots, but is it really that exciting? Perhaps not all the time, but you may have to hide your job title when you speak to friends and family in some cases. Several of the intelligence jobs are desk bound and entail more paper work than action, although some of the positions involve high risk work. 




SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES USED BY SPIES


Gather intelligence; it's good to have satellite maps of the area. Take the weeks before your official "mission" to casually scout the area, learn the common routes, and get people used to seeing you. (This is where your good reason to be around comes in handy, and this will help you blend in further.)




A GUIDE TO WRITING SUPER POWERS


Anything can be made into a super power.  From camouflaging, to climbing, to flying, to zapping yourself into a dust particle.  Even things that seem pathetic and lame can be amazing super abilities.  Did anyone see "Sky High"?
