1Sleeper embraces high octane, action movie-style play, with elite military player characters, exotic powers created by Cold War superscience, fuelled by a fast and detailed system to handle the most intense action the players can throw at it.
Cold War Secrets
2Sleeper’s world is one of hidden horrors, covered up in the Cold War’s darkest days – supersoldier clones, bioweapon caches, bio-engineered agents driven mad by the experiments that made them, and even the remnants of the Nazi ‘Wunderwaffen’.
Story by Ben Counter
3Sleeper’s background is written by Ben Counter, a science fiction and fantasy author best known for the popular Soul Drinker and Grey Knight series, along with roleplaying sourcebooks for Games Workshop, Green Ronin and White Wolf Publishing.
4The world buried its amoral weaponry and biotech projects, hoping they could be safely forgotten. But now those threats are waking up and only the sleepers – agents of the superpowers put in long-term sleep in case of nuclear war – can stop them.
