One person’s freedom fighter is another person’s terrorist, and vice-versa. Rebels, revolutionaries, and extremists all fall under the title regardless of their intentions. What makes a terrorist is the use of violence and fear to achieve some political aim. It often means that such tactics have been taken against civilian targets and other non-combatants, which is why we need to take a moment to say the obvious: we do not condone or excuse terrorism. But to tell a fictional story involving terrorism, you need to have characters.

This book contains five pregenerated, ready-to-use statistic blocks, one for each level of expertise (Novice, Beginner, Competent, Expert, and Master). You can use the stats as-is or make a few easy tweaks to customize them. Notes on how to do that and information on personality archetypes and motivations let you quickly put together the perfect character for your campaign.

I created the DoubleZero Character Bank series for three reasons. The first is to provide a resource for gamemasters that might need character statistics on the fly. Grab a character at the appropriate level, make a quick alteration or two as needed, and you’re back in the game.

The second is for players. If you need ideas for a character or don’t want to spend a lot of time fiddling with numbers and math, you can use one of these. Again, with a few simple tweaks, you can tailor it to suit your vision of the Terrorist you want to play.

The final reason is to showcase the versatility of DoubleZero. The 30 professions listed in the Director’s Cut edition cover a broad range of character types. By giving each their own booklet, I hope to show the potential of “real-world” roleplaying, and the appeal of playing characters without magic or superpowers.

The DoubleZero System is a tabletop roleplaying game toolkit. First designed for action, espionage, and thriller adventures, the skill-driven tabletop roleplaying system is perfect for mysteries, police procedurals, and crime dramas based on your favorite television series, movies, and novels. DoubleZero works with any “realistic” modern setting that doesn’t lean into magic, the supernatural, or superpowers. A copy of the DoubleZero: Director’s Cut is required to play.

This book includes:

Using This Book: Notes on using the pregenerated Terrorist characters as either a gamemaster or player, how to quickly modify the character to make it your own, and potential safety and consent issues that might arise while playing the profession.

Archetypes and Supporting Characters: Personalities and motivations for player characters, antagonists, and supporting cast members of this profession.

Lightspress Media

Lightspress Media is a tabletop roleplaying company with a lo-fi approach. Utility of content takes precedence over ostentatious production value. Graphic elements should enhance the message of the text, not act as page filler and eye candy. Physical books need to be compact, portable, and sturdy. This minimalist aesthetic results in powerful toolkits that are both useful and affordable. After all, tabletop roleplaying isn’t the book. It’s the creativity and collaboration that takes place around the tabletop. Our mission is to give you as much as you need, then get out of your way.
