The Dee Sanction is a tabletop role-playing game about serving Queen and country in the late Tudor period, in a time where kingdoms vie for power, the Church splinters under the pressure of reform, and creatures of folklore emerge from enforced hiding seeking revenge against those who imprisoned them.
You’re a bad person — sentenced to hang for dabbling in magic — given a chance to redeem yourself and earn freedom in service to Queen Elizabeth‘s newest line of defence.
The Dee Sanction is a self-contained role-playing game. A 68-page black-and-white illustrated compact book (A5, 148 x 210mm/5.8 x 8.3 inches) including:
- a character generation system, including random Agent creation and Tradecraft system to leverage contacts, magic and special equipment
- a Short Tudor History, a brief timeline of events, and a description of key enemies of Elizabethan England
- a simple, self-contained system for handling threats, hazards and consequences with an approach that always pushes onward
- a bestiary of supernatural and common enemies, plus a full introductory adventure, “Lost in Translation“
The system requires either a full polyhedral dice set or can be played with a deck of ordinary playing cards.
The Dee Sanction Adventures: 6 adventures set against the backdrop of London and the Elizabethan countryside, setting Agents of Dee against varied conspiracies and devilish plans, filled with diverse challenges and dark magic.
Format: Paperback, 48pp, colour printed

The Sight is a 20-page saddle-bound supplement that provides an optional expansion for the character generation of both Agents and adversaries. It introduces the talents of Aura Reading, Scrying, Prophecy and Token Reading, with guidance on visions, communing with spirits, possession, hypnosis, and the miraculous intervention of the Divine.
The return of the supernatural brought with it primaeval power that might reshape the world. While some Agents of the Dee Sanction call upon the Angelic Host to guide and protect them, others use the uncommon visions and counsel of preternatural forces.

Investigators in The Dee Sanction often have a short lifespan, so having a dry wipe-able character cards means you can wipe away the old and generate the new without wasting paper or erasing a hole in an ordinary paper character sheet. Tactile, gloss finish; they work with most wipeable pens without leaving residue. Even then, a quick wipe with a moist tissue should remove any “greying” from use over time.
