Update on the Swords of the Serpentine playtests.

Swords of the Serpentine: sword-and-sorcery RPG from Pelgrane Press, using the GUMSHOE rules.  Very Conanesque.

I’m going to do two sessions; one is this Friday, and it’s going to be in meatspace (I haven’t seen some of these folks in a while).  The online session is tentatively being blocked out for the weekend of either February 9th or 16th: I actually have to figure out who is available for that.  If you are interested, or you were interested and want to remind me, drop me a line via Contact.  You’ll need a computer that can handle Google Hangouts.

Flipping through the Sword of the Serpentine playtest files.

It’s ambitious (very Conan-y).  It’s also pretty big.  I expect that I may have to do an actual physical playtest in addition to the online one I was planning.  Of course, that may just be an excuse on my part; I haven’t run a physical game since WashingCon.

PS: End of January/beginning of February for the online session.  Will let people know.

Looks like Swords of the Serpentine playtesting will be a go.

Shoot me an email or reply here if you’re interested in signing up for a video gaming session.  It’ll probably be on a weekend night, and everything has to be done before February 28th.  Also: the files are proprietary, so they will NOT be given out except as part of the actual Swords of the Serpentine playtest process. I’ve had a good relationship with Pelgrane Press in the past, not least because I take this stricture seriously.

Hope to hear from enough of you folks soon!

PS: I don’t expect any of my readers are the sort to pirate the files, but better safe than sorry.  Also: Emily Dresner from the old In Nomine days co-wrote this book, and I’d rather cut off my left pinkie finger than have to explain what happened.

Two questions about upcoming video playtests.

Basically:

  1. Pelgrane Press is doing a call for playtesting their sword-and-sorcery GUMSHOE game Swords of the Serpentine. Any of you folks interested?
  2. I’m giving serious consideration to running a session of The Day After Ragnarok at WashingCon.  I’d be using my one-shot Song of the Siren for it, but will need to check to see if it works as a four-hour.  Anybody interested in playtesting that?
