The Conspiracies Sourcebook is a sourcebook for Conspiracy X, second edition which provides an overview of several “conspiracies” in the game world, mainly Aegis (the default PC organization) and NDD (the default “bad guys”), along with a bunch of other smaller players. As far as I can figure out, it’s a combination of slightly modified reprints from 1st edition sourcebooks, along with a bunch of new material. It’s pretty good; there’s a lot of info here and much of it should be useful for anyone running this game, and I suspect many of these groups could be lifted whole from this game into some other “modern conspiracy” -type game with only minor modifications. Probably the best part – at least the interesting, to me – was the listing of several smaller cults and groups, along with info on how to construct your own.
As with the other books in this series, this is a dense book; the font is quite small and the pages thin, so the book ends up being a lot more hefty than it looks based on outside appearance. This is not a bad thing, but it’s not exactly quick, light reading. The writing is decent, quite good in some places and more plodding in others (probably due to different writers and/or sources). Art is the same as with previous books, sparse but decent enough.
