This is the first review I've written, motivated by a product which is very weak and very disappointing.

For the money I expected a series of original missions I could insert into a combat/military focused Modern campaign. The problem is that the missions are simply not original. The first mission provided is called "The Taking of Ashland 2-2-3". If you've seen "The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3" its the same. In another mission called "Getting Results" a terrorsit group siezes a bus. Scene 1 is described in the following terms: "The bus is at the center of a swarm of police cars. The sides of the bus are filled with hostages: the terrorists have forced them to put their hands against the windows so they act as human shields." Then later in that scene: "The air is suddenly filled with a rhythmic beat. Helicopters. You look up to see the media swarming like flies to the scene. Tucker’s eyes bulge. “No, no, NO! You have to get them out of here. They were just stalling for time. They were just waiting for the cameras!”. d4 rounds later, the bus explodes. Sound familiar - The Siege.

There is simply not enough creative originality to justify its $10+ price tag. Save your money, I wish I had

An interesting and useful product for those looking to get a mission started. It was created for Spycraft but I used mine for D20 Modern with little conversion. A solid product.
