Spycraft cover art by Veronica V. Jones

Spycraft was a ground breaking modern spin on the, at the time, wondrous 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons RPG. The game was published by AEG and featured toolkits for generic espionage gaming as well as a spy-fi setting called Shadowforce Archer. While the game was pretty solid and still revered today, one of the most stunning aspects was the gaming books' cover art. The covers were created by Victoria V. Jones. She writes:
In 2001, Alderac Entertainment Group had a paranormal superspy game in development. They had a style in mind which would be black and white on black and would look gritty. The art director, Jim Pinto, sent out an email call for artists. I quickly put together a sample piece of what i had in mind and was happy to get the job.

What followed was a surprising run. The two books I was initially contracted for turned into a run of 19 books as i did the covers for the entire first edition of the game, with additional books for licensed companies who wanted "the Spycraft look".

The following represent some of the best work I did for the line, including the licensed books. Enjoy!
