Publicly, the Weatherman’s Syndicate is a collection of freelance meteorologists who share resources, and work with publications across the world. Their crown jewel, the sky ship Skiromac, acting as a mobile hub for its members. Privately, they serve as supranational spies and information brokers, selling secrets to the highest bidder and shepherding sensitive cargo across borders. Although the syndicates’ espionage is an open secret, their usefulness means few are truly interested in shutting down their operations. Nobody wants to get caught in the rain.

Players take on the role of Weatherman operatives (4 unique agents included), tasked with completing a mission set for them by Skiromac HQ. A Game Master (GM) facilitates the mission, helping the rules to run smoothly and acting as all non-player characters (NPCs). Rolls are used to resolve actions where the risk of failure is interesting, although each type of operative also has their own Special Moves they can spend points on to make happen without risking failure.
