DwD Studios currently has the 132-paged White Lies RPG entirely free in PDF form on DriveThruRPG.
In fact, all ten supplements for White Lies are free too.
The RPG is based on the Swords & Wizardry Whitebox system and is an espionage thriller. A secret 19th power in the American Constitution created an agency outside the military’s scope to protect the country. Characters are agents in Bureau 19.
Sometimes people tell lies for good reasons. Ask any parent who has lied to his child about the loss of a loved one. Ask any man who was ever asked if everything was going to be okay when he knew it would not. Sometimes the truth is too ugly for people to hear. Sometimes if the truth were known it would change everything. It’s these little white lies that people tell their children, men tell their families, and governments tell their people that keep us safe.
The Constitution lists eighteen specific enumerated powers of congress. One is omitted from public view though. The ones you’ve seen are what are shown to the rest of the world but nothing is as transparent as that. Even the founding fathers had spy networks, without which their revolution would have failed in its earliest days. There is indeed a nineteenth power in Article I Section 8. It’s very specific and highly secretive and involves the security of this nation, outside the scope of its military, navy, militia, or even the highly known FBI or CIA.
To execute this power, a bureau within the government exists, layered in secrecy and discretely funded. Bureau 19. New agents have been recruited and are about to be trained, and they stand beside you today.
I give you one last chance to voluntarily leave, before you learn things that cannot be unlearned. The questions you must now ask yourself: Are you willing to do bad things for good reasons? Are you willing to leave the comfort of ignorance behind, and to take action on the truths you learn? Are you willing to live a life of white lies?
The studio is active on Twitter and said there that the move is to support the fan-share side of the OSR movement.
Also shared on the social platform was some sample characters from White Lies.
