Just a Game - Playtest Packet

This is a playtest packet.

This packet is primarily aimed at individuals who already possess and play one of three game systems: Fate, GUMSHOE or Powered by the Apocalypse (aka Apocalyspe World).

If you are not familiar with these games and are still interested in trying this out, you are free to do so but know that full game rules of the basic systems are not included.

And the above is the only piece of art currently made for the game.


You're logging up on the computer, happily cracking open the brand new shiny MMO you just downloading from the company site, ready to make your character and start on a new set of adventures. But something changes when you click "start playing"....because instead of watching a load screen boot up, you find the world turning black and when you wake up it seems like you've become your character and the world around you is...is the tutorial mission. What the hell is going on here?


Or maybe you were putting on your VR sim helmet and about to boot up for some online virtual gaming and suddenly there's a madman telling everybody that they need to appreciate life more and so he's going to give them a real death game. Now you're stuck in the game and if someone tries to take the helmet off, it'll fry your brain. The only way to get out is to clear the game, but if you die in the game, you die in real life.


The rules in this packet are meant to recreate stories like those above, where people find that the games they're playing have become very real indeed.

To begin with, this is more of an EXCELLENT essay on the topic and addresses some issues in both paper and pencil and MMO RPGs. It does do a really good write up of how it could be covered with 3 rules systems. If you are unfamiliar with any of [...]

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
