In 1583, an adept Gnostic team were sent to Europe by Walsingham on a mission he didn't commit to public record. These folk journeyed through ill-begotten territories engaged in tasks of national... More > security in the defence of England. Today, still engaged in secret activities for Her Majesties government, they survive as agents of fortune. If you have a supernatural problem... if no one else can help... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire... The Dee Sanction. The Dee Sanction is a game of tabletop adventure in a divergent world of Covert Enochian Intelligence; where forces work against the ascendancy of Elizabethan power, drawing on primal and malevolent supernatural forces. The Dee Sanction: Book of Days is a blank character record in the style of a bullet-journal, featuring copies of the character sheet plus room to organise and keep notes. This is not the game itself. The game will be released late 2019; buying this supports that creative effort.< Less
