Looking for playtest Keepers

Post by Shimmin Beg » Wed May 11, 2016 1:15 pm

I finally managed to playtest a Gaslight scenario I've been working on for months, and it went down really well with my group.

But it's one thing for me to run it, and quite another for a Keeper to pick it up and run it from scratch. I'm on the lookout for a couple of people willing to give it a shot, get feedback from their players (and themselves), and ideally record sessions for me.

Quick overview:
* A Gaslight scenario set in Lincolnshire, England
* Heavy on investigation, very little action; a fairly slow-paced scenario
* More of an occult mystery than strictly Lovecraftian
* Flexible ending to suit the players' choices, with no obligatory climactic confrontation
* Lots of detail, design notes, Keeping notes, and sidebars to explain period details or Keeper options (like adjusting tone)

I discussed it extensively on YSDC: http://www.yog-sothoth.com/topic/28587- ... rio-draft/ and on my blog http://www.yog-sothoth.com/blog/369-shimmin-bloeg/

If anyone's interested in giving this a shot, please get in touch. I'm hoping to get it published eventually.

I don't have any particular deadline. Apart from anything else, I'm not sure who other than Chaosium would publish a 60-page Gaslight scenario and they're not taking submissions at the moment. The other publishers' focus seems to be either on their own game lines, or on darker and mostly in-house material. I've got some small revisions to make after my initial playtest so there's no rush.
