    Might I add Sakamoto Days to the recommended titles.

    It is a comedic action manga that has a retired hitman running a minimart with his family, a secret science lab under a museum that accidentally made a kid a mind-reader, a pseudo-Blockbuster information broker firm that sells its info in movie format, and more.
    It started last year and is still in its early days with only 40 chapter out right now - perfect to catch up on quick.

    That is an interesting question… Curving Bullet is a gift as I see, but it’s one that would be practiced and consciously used, so yes, it’s kind of a change in my expectations (and made me read again many gifts, so I understand what you mean).

    Neall pitched Assassins after binging John Wick and the Hitman games.

    In addition to those, my own touchstones are La Femme Nikita (and its many different adaptions), Wanted, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Salt (the Angelina Jolie trilogy), and Assassin's Creed.

    Co-devs Monica Speca and Violet Green also include Dishonored, Metal Gear Solid, Atomic Blonde, Gunpowder Milkshake, Alias, Human Target, and Treadstone among their inspirations.

    But of course, it's not limited to those. The assassin/spy genre is a big one with lots of sources to pull from.

    I was going to say that I was guessing John Wyck and Wanted were going to be big influences on this. I presume stuff like Nobody, Leon: The Professional, La Femme Nikita, The Replacement Killers, Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai, Hanna, and Columbiana as well.

    This sounds really neat. I especially like the concept of Shadow, as it seems to open up the possibility of a whole host of potential "alternate genre realities" running around in the world, like Scott Pilgrim style music/video game battles, Roger Rabbit Toon Towns, X-Files alien conspiracies, or "computers are magic" hackers, with none of them tripping over each other.

    Sounds good. Looking forward to see more.

    Looks like a John Wick campaign is fully possible.

    Where does this rabbit hole begin from? Trinity Continuum Core Rulebook?
    Yes. That is all you need before Assassins book.

    There are a few other books you may like, but not need to play

    The interesting thing about being referred to as the Shadow 'layer' is REALLY The Flux sources themselves, there are 'unknown data' for normal people - and also that we know Flux manipulations from sources and times. They like to collect archaic items in themselves...

    Onyx Path have started to share previews about TC Assasins book/modern subsetting - looking from Saints & Monsters series of previews, we will get probably one each week.

    Here is the 1st one... Entering The Shadow: Becoming An Assassin
