Really cool to submit a tabletop RPG. Like, that's just awesome!

There are some things that really limit the game here from a GM point of view, and you kinda noted in the GM notes - the design of the game for the NPCs pushes 'against' the correct way for the GM to 'win'. I think this game would be more solid by taking the GM out entirely, having a deck of opponents that spies can play against, and making another player choose the actions for the opponent often. The lack of a mechanic to share any information also limits the game. While it meets the criteria, I think a bit more look at the design makes it obvious this would be better as a board game concept, then as a tabletop RPG.

Hey, cool idea! Not sure whether random chance is an intrinsic part of a tabletop RPG, though.

Possibly if you continue developing this, definitely work on adding more whitespace to your PDF. It's hard for the eye to follow such a wall of text!

Keep up the good work!
