Espionage! is a role-playing game published by Hero Games in 1983.


Espionage! is a system of modern espionage rules that use the Hero System.[1] The rulebook (64 pages) covers character creation, skills, combat (melee and firearms), vehicles and car chases, and a sample espionage organization, the CIA.[1] "Merchants of Terror" (16 pages) is an introductory scenario in which the heroes must track down a stolen atom bomb.[1]

Publication history[edit]

Espionage! was designed by George MacDonald and Steve Peterson, and was published in 1983 by Hero Games as a boxed set including a 64-page book, and a 16-page book, and dice.[1]

This system was later updated and republished as Danger International.[1]
