Conflict is an adventure game designed for a setting of modern warfare, police special action, espionage, and near-future apocalypse. Its default setting is brutally realistic. New players will be surprised to find that without teamwork, good intelligence of the enemy, proper preparation, planning and some luck, their adventurers will quickly die. The successful will cover themselves in gory glory. Though they can of course – if they wish to try an idea usually anathema to players – try to talk to their enemies.
Movies and TV shows such as the Bourne series, Ronin, Bodyguard (UK), Sicario, Walking Dead, and the like are good references.
The blog has many articles about the game.
