Imaginarium Games is a company with a simple and clear goal:
Enable Game Masters and Players to create memorable gaming experiences by providing outstanding resources
It's a Savage Worlds setting. A Table Top Role Playing Game powered by the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition rules. Players take on the roles of agents working for the British Secret Intelligence Service, specifically Section D, which was established in early 1938. Section D goes on to be one of the building blocks of the Special Operations Executive.
Set against the backdrop of a world in turmoil, our heroes take on missions to protect King and country. Officially tasked with spying on Fascists and Bolsheviks, a standard Section D mission typically meant photographing railway yards and water towers. Many operations were not standard though. Not by a long way. So far from standard, in fact, that their exact details remain closely guarded secrets to this day.
Section D agents saw and thwarted schemes so fantastic, the public simply would not believe they were real at all. Small details of some of these operations have leaked into popular culture, but nobody thinks for one moment they are true stories.
These are The Secret Files of Section D.

"I’ve been lucky enough to have played in Allan's Section D since the beginning. Allan has always been an extremely expert and capable designer of engaging adventures for Savage Worlds in a variety of settings. But in Section D he has exceeded himself. Pulp adventure - with paranormal elements - set between the two World Wars, it features a rip-roaring sequence of adventures that span the globe. He’s clearly researched each and every setting visited in detail - as it was in the real world - before turning things on their head. Each adventure is fun, extremely well paced and very engaging. Most of all, however, the puns and jokes in the writing are both perfectly suited to that period of history whilst also being extremely funny. A very heady cocktail."
Simon Burley is the Creator and Co-Author of Golden Heroes, the Superhero Roleplaying Game.
"I first came into contact with Section D when Allan did the research for Better Latte Than Never and we discussed Prague in the ’30s. It is a well thought out adventure with some tongue-in-cheek moments. I had a few laughs just reading it. From what I have seen of The Secret Files of Section D so far, it promises to live up to and exceed that experience!"

"FIRST RATE BOOK - you want some Weird War Pulpy goodness then this is FOR YOU!
The Secret Files of Section D is an absolutely gorgeously laid out, well researched and most of all well organised book for the Savage Worlds system allowing you to play those kind of games that totally immerse you into the PULP, SPY, WEIRD WAR, DIESELPUNK, SCHLOCK HORROR vibes.
I loved the simple to understand and read notes from the Author too - letting me see clearly what is background, historical notes to help position information, key rules and effects and also suggestions on how to make play easier or to capture the ideas behind areas of the game from the writers own perspective.
Seriously this book has it all properly thought out. Sure you need the base rules, but this guide and expansion is chocked full of everything else you need to have a cracking game with a party of derring do-ers...
I also have the Printed book (from the KS) as well as the PDF and the layout is superb and has been well worth the wait.
This will be one to watch as i know there are some expansions on the horizon... now if only i can get my macro-lensed binocular helmet to focus on where they are....."
The above is the review Chris wrote on DTRPG for the setting.

It all started at a games convention a few years ago with what was supposed to be a one off adventure using the Savage Worlds Role Playing Game. The pulp adventure, Better Latte Than Never, pitted an intrepid unit of agents working for the British Secret Intelligence Service against an over the top selection of Nazis and cultists. Laced with puns and intentionally bad translations, the players loved it and wanted more, and then they wanted more.
That one off game became a campaign that has run over several years and remains a staple for the convention's Friday evening entertainment.
When more people asked if they could play, who were we to refuse them? And so a full Savage Worlds setting was born.
Imaginarium Games is the home of The Secret Files of Section D, a pulp, spy roleplaying game set in a world on the brink of war.
