See Page XX: February 2012

This month’s Page XX is a bumper January/February edition. Our line-up this month includes the incomparable Robin D Laws with three columns. Two give advice on combat rules in Ashen Stars and the last holds a treasure-trove of writing tips, both for general prose and for roleplaying scenarios. A playtest group has provided us with a detailed report on their experience playtesting DramaSystem. We’ve got a bunch of new playtest opportunities – Robin’s new game, Hill Folk which uses the DramaSystem, Bill White’s New World, a world-building historical fantasy, and The Zalozhniy Quartet, a series of four linked adventures for Night’s Black Agents. Sticking with the vampire theme we have a reminder of the Conspyramid competition and a detailed guide to constructing and collapsing a conspiracy from James Palmer. Will Hindmarch gives us some updates for the opus that is the Eternal Lies campaign and his new post-apocalyptic GUMSHOE game, Razed. We have the monthly round-up of all things Pelgrane from Simon Rogers, the customary Poll, and for the first time we have an open call for artist to submit their work for consideration.



New Releases

  • Terra Nova by Leonard Balsera, this is a scenario for Ashen Stars involving a terrible secret hidden on a deserted luxury liner.
  • Lorefinder (PDF version) by Gareth Hanrahan, the rules for a GUMSHOE/Pathfinder mash-up.

    I chose generic but I would have six panels at A4 size, as opposed to the usual landscape screens. I find that I like two regular landscape screens. Or co opt the Hackmaster screen for my nefarious purposes.

    I would like something for each game, but in the same format as the recent new Call of Cthulhu screen, that is landscape and think, glossy sides.

    Will there be ready-made artwork and refeere sheets to insert in the generic screen?

    Ms Lewis’ response clinched the direction of my vote. Thanks for the clarification.

    I’ve never used the Trail Keeper’s Screen, though I bought it for the included resources book, which was excellent.
