Rob Heinsoo’s Favorite GUMSHOE Ability May Make You Go Hmm…

You won’t guess Rob Heinsoo’s favorite GUMSHOE ability, but you will find it deeply Heinsovian.


GUMSHOE is the groundbreaking investigative roleplaying system by Robin D. Laws that shifts the focus of play away from finding clues (or worse, not finding them), and toward interpreting clues, solving mysteries and moving the action forward. GUMSHOE powers many Pelgrane Press games, including Trail of Cthulhu, Night’s Black Agents, Esoterrorists, Ashen Stars, Mutant City Blues and Fear Itself.
