A downloadable supplement

now: the second half of the twentieth century. the powers that be are locked in a tense nuclear standoff, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. away from the watchful eye of national intelligence, a cadre of exceptional misfits is assembled. these soldiers of fortune are uniquely equipped for covert and unusual operations.

so uniquely equipped that replacing these downed operatives is nigh impossible and agencies such as FIST cannot afford to in the first place. ultimately, all good operatives die a warrior’s death. all perish in the end, nameless, alone. no medals, no parades.

but what if the end wasn’t the end?

The Ouroboros Procedure is a supplement for FIST, designed to add a bit of mechanical and narrative synergy around the act of DYING. Whenever a character dies, they are resurrected through some unique procedure. Advanced technology, occult rituals, or metatextual reality alterations are all valid. These resurrections don't come without a price, a costs the compounds the more your team dies and resurrects.  

Apply it to a group of characters you have been playing in an long standing campaign, start a campaign where your characters have already died, apply these concepts to other mission ideas as plot hooks or simply do whatever you want.
