From publisher blurb:
Four to six 1st-level agents may play (though the serial’s challenges and XP rewards are tiered so that the serial can be played by up to six agents of levels 6, 11, or 16 as well).
During the Living Spycraft serial SPA5-03: Nest, the Agency suffered a schism, dissolving into two separate organizations, each a former Division — Intelligence and Operations. Every agent chose either to remain with one of these divisions, or to become a freelance operative.
In SPA5-04: Operation Snow Pigeon, agents of all allegiances were approached by a mysterious informant called Paradox and tasked with recovering an Agency deep cover operative before he fell into the hands of a dangerous new player on the world scene: The Franchise.
Proving Ground is a Terrortory serial — a mission assigned by the agents’ superiors within the Franchise shadow cell. The agents remain a force for good, however, and must find a way to remain true to their ethics and morals while pleasing the cell’s evil leadership.
