10:31a - RPG Profiling Results
Here are the end results of The RPG Profiling Thread I started yesterday.

We'll do this again in about six months, see how they compare. In the meantime - let's hear some thoughts? What's surprising about these results, what isn't? Anyone bring up any new games you want to learn more about?

12:11p - System Substitution!
Every so often I read an entry where a person runs a game set in one universe/genre, but use the rule system from another. I guess an example would be to run a Call of Cthulu game using AD&D 3rd edition rules.

So I have two questions:
1.) Have you done this?
2.) If so, why?

1:49p - AHHH, a SNAKE, oh, it's a SNAAAKE....
The sky was all weird and yellowish last evening, a blood moon forecast for that night, and the Red Sox playing the decisive game of the World Series...as my Mage group headed into a temple of Set, surrounded by his creepy followers.

Okay, guys, I seriously need external playtesters for my upcoming game, Unsung.

You can download everything you need to play from here:


The files are PDFs, and they're just raw text, with no layout. Try to imagine the SIDEBAR bits are actually sidebars and skip over them during your first read-through. The final version will, of course, be layed out and have pretty pictures and everything.

Ignore the feedback questions at that URL. At this point, I want to know if an external group, one that does not include me, can successfully take the game, run it, and enjoy it. I know it works when I run it, but naturally it seems intuitive to me.

I will, of course, be available to answer questions and clarify things. Plus, any playtest group that gets back to me with serious feedback gets free print copies of the game when it comes out, of course.

Unsung, for those of you who don't know, is a game of morality under pressure. It's framed for mostly the "gritty cop show" genre, but it works equally well for a war story, or even a game surrounding faternity brothers.

Apologies in advance for anywhere you see this crossposted.
