Whereas Twilight 2000 was set in the aftermath of nuclear destruction, Dark Conspiracy was situated in a milieu of ongoing social and international decay—aided and abetted by (mostly malign) forces not native to our mundane space-time continuum.
This Bladerunner-meets-Cthulhu setting quickly gathered a loyal following, and I was called upon to write a stand-alone project known as the Dark Tek Sourcebook (1992) Almost twenty years later, it still gathers very favorable reviews as a game supplement that can be used productively in almost any comparable setting.
I was also tasked to create a very streamlined space travel/combat system for the game’s main rulebook—which, due to an oversight (!), I received no credit for in the book (despite the fact I got paid for it, and my rules were used almost word for word).
Lastly, I wrote a Dark Conspiracy adventure entitled “Gnawlings” (in Challenge no. 56, 1992), and a piece of short fiction for the series, published in Challenge magazine # 61 and entitled “It Plays With Its Food” (1991). It was one of the first pieces of fiction created for the now-defunct Dark Conspiracy universe.
