Cryptocracy is a role-playing game for a GM and one or more players. It is a game where the characters glimpse the truth of shadowy forces that really run the country. This knowledge puts their lives in danger, and it's a race to see if they can uncover the whole truth before the conspiracy overwhelms them.
Cryptocracy differs from usual roleplaying games in a number of ways;
The game is designed as a one-shot. The players have a goal to reach, but will they die trying?
There is no predetermined plot. The players and GM come up with the details of the conspiracy as they play.
The GM is the enemy. He is out the stop the players achieving their goal.
The GM does not have ultimate power. How he opposes the players is determined by cards he draws.
