Playtester wanted! Followed by some clickbait remark!


Hi, everybody!

(Hi, doctor Nick!)

Even though the last attempts have been ranging from mildly to severely disappointing, I have gotten The Urge again. And this time, it's for a good cause, too. As I have mentioned before, I'm working on my own little RPG. Visible progress has been very limited, but I've been working on it behind the scenes all the while. I'm now pretty confident I have a both a setting and a system that are going to work, and what I feel I need most right now is putting her into action and see how she runs.

And that's where you come in. I'm looking for:
- People who pop up here on a weekly basis
- Who are interested in RPGs
- And willing to test one set in a film noir setting

I'm offering:
- A nice, dark story in which you shine in the lead role(s)
- An interesting new background against which the story develops
- A willing ear for your opinion on game mechanics

Experience with RPGs? Screw it - I'll take curiosity over experience right now. Time? Well, it's supposed to be a short story, and at the moment time is a valuable commodity to myself as well. If you could manage to do 2-3 posts per week, I'll be more than happy. Difficulty level? Don't think so. If you're imagination is in working order, we'll get there. Mechanics are supposed to be simple and intuitive, and are only applied if and when of added value.

I'll take anywhere between 1 and 4 players. We'll start out with the basics and work our way up from there. With so many new people suddenly frequenting this forum, I'm hoping to find some more volunteers as well. Again, it's supposed to be a low-impact high-entertainment experience, so in my opinion you'd be crazy not to! But I tend to be biased on this :)

So, buttocks clenched right now: who's up for some digging around in the darker regions of a large American city in the 30's/40's of last century?

Daddy needs a new pair of shoes,


I'm in.  Once-a-week commitment is alright for me.

Great! I'm leaving this out there for a little while longer, see who else may turn up.

To spice things up a little, I was digging around on YouTube to find some reference material. When I ran into this: an attempt to fit The Big Lebowski into the film noir genre. Not only is it an interesting analysis, it also sums up a number of basic elements of film noir, which may help to define the framework.

I put the fun in
