Playtesters Wanted!

Postby Brianide » Wed Sep 26, 2012 7:06 am

Ok, so this isn't M&M related, but there are a lot of great people on these boards! I've been designing a new RPG system with a couple friends, and I think we're getting close to the end of our internal testing. It's called Instant Action, and it's geared for pick-up-and-play games with no prep required for players or GMs. If you're interested, please e-mail me at bbayes2@gmail.com or PM me here.

Sorry for cluttering your boards, GR!

I requested this be moved to the sidekicks lounge, although I imagine that that won't happen any time soon.

In the meantime, how would your playtest happen? On a forum?

Can you tell us more about the genre of your game? Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Superheroes, etc...

I intend to distribute materials to other groups, including the full ruleset and a sample adventure or two. The default genre of Instant Action is fantasy. Players choose a race at the start of the game, which determines all of your Stats (similar to Abilities or Attributes in other games). All Skills start at 1. As you play, you can increase your Stats and Skills and gain Perks (which modify the rules for you or grant you special abilities) and better gear.

So we play it with our home groups and send you feedback?

That's the plan! I'll have to discuss it with the others, but I'd like to give free copies of the final PDF to the playtesting groups.

You're more than welcome to playtest. Email me so I can send you updates about our plans. You're going to need your own group of testers, unless you can join up with others from ATT and play online.

Our game, Instant Action, is a fantasy RPG designed for truly no-prep, pick-up-and-play games. The rules are simple and easy to learn, and starting adventures that we produce for GMs to run will explain each rule as it appears in play so that the GM doesn't need to pre-read the rules. Players need not "create" a character in the traditional sense. As the game starts, each player chooses a race, jots down his starting Stats (determined by race) and gets to the adventure. While each race has advantages over the others in some areas, all characters can try any combination of offensive and defensive options, such as normal weapons (one handed), big weapons (two handed), shields, and various runestones used to cast magic.

If it is your desire, you may certainly play a dual-wielding fire blast runestone orc in heavy armor.

Color me intrigued. I'm willing to give it a shot.
A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.
