Re: Vampires

Not sure if it is helpful, but I have recently been looking at this and have found the " Undead " art book very useful to get general flavour and the old GURPS " Blood Types " sourcebook to aid with how these might work in gameplay. What I have noticed is that despite the numerou...

Re: Steampunk Vaesen!?

You might want to check out The Machine King - a Cthulhu by Gaslight scenario (I have the "Reborn" version) which deals with a similar premise (although, of course, the reasons behind things are different). You might get some inspiration for events, locations, etc, especially if you are ru...

Winter's Tale question

I'm looking through the new Seasons of Mystery PDF (can't wait for the actual books to arrive!) for potential future Mysteries and I am intrigued by the fourth one, A Winter's Tale . As I'm a bit possessed with timelines, I was wondering if there was any further information about the " Midwinte...

Re: Question about Socialite equipment

Well, a good chat with the player revealed a happy accident in regard to the country estate - we've agreed on a location for it which has lots of potential for future mysteries, which is good to know.

Re: Question about Socialite equipment

Cheers - I thought as much. Looking over the character, it may well be the hook for a future mystery, tying in to their dark secret, but it's early days yet. I sense a conversation with the player at some point :)

Question about Socialite equipment

So, one of the characters in my upcoming game is a Socialite, from the Mythic Britain book. The equipment is listed includes a "country estate", but I'm trying to figure out what this means from a game point of view - does this affect resources/capital, is it simply a potential safe haven ...

Re: One Ring Dice Set

For anyone in the UK who has received your pledge, did you get an email notification, or was it at least hand-delivered/signed for? I don't want my parcel to be left in my porch for hours because I didn't know it was there. I received an email from Gamesquest yesterday morning with tracking info fo...

Re: One Ring Dice Set

Received my pledge this morning and both sets of dice (the ones in the Starter Set and the additional Black Dice) have the Spinal Trap treatment. Shame.

Re: Wicked Secret and other Mysteries

I was planning to base my campaign on the seasons given in each mystery: Dance of Dreams (Autumn; PCs are travelling to Upsala from Sigtuna to meet with Linnea; PCs don't know each other yet and are not aware of the Society; no Olaus Klint and stop-over at Witch Cat due to extreme storm; hopefully a...
