GURPS - The Prisoner
From their website:
"I Am Not a Number!
I Am a Free Man!
Welcome to The Village. You'll be staying here for a long time. Experience the tension and thrills of No. 6, The Prisoner, fighting to maintain his freedom against No. 2 and the masters of The Village. Only this time, you aren't sitting in front of the TV, unable to help. This time, you're involved, a prisoner yourself. What will you do when you find yourself captured, drugged, harassed, your every move anticipated by unseen monitors? Will you give in? Or will you fight back against the forces of conformity and defeat? Just how strong are you?
This is the authorized roleplaying worldbook for The Prisoner, the classic British series starring Patrick McGoohan. It describes The Village and its inhabitants, both wardens and prisoners. It also covers the weird science available to No. 2 (the Chairman of The Village), and tells how to prepare and run a Prisoner campaign, in The Village or elsewhere, with special emphasis on roleplaying paranoia and keeping the players guessing! A short adventure, "Arrival," introduces a party of prisoners into The Village.
Also included are a bibliography of Prisoner material and synopses of all seventeen episodes.
This book is designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set, but can be used as a sourcebook for any other roleplaying system."
"Where am I?"
"In The Village."
"What do you want?"
"Whose side are you on?"
"That would be telling. We want information . . . information . . . information."
"You won't get it."
"By hook or by crook, we will."
"Who are you?"
"The new No. 2."
"Who is No. 1?"
"You are No. 6."
"I am not a number! I am a free man!"
