Scorn (Playtest edition)

Scorn is an amazing, modern horror game about demon hunting and killing monsters in gruesome ways. It's closest cousin would be White Wolf's classic Hunter: The Reckoning, but Scorn is tons gorier, more vulgar, much more blackly funny, and better organized and with far superior art. Scorn also has some of the best original demons I've seen in a modern horror game.

The only, and I mean only reason I didn't give this puppy five solid stars is that most of the spells are inconsistently named. About 75% of the spells in the game have one name in the fiction and another name in the game rule paragraph above the fluff. It's obvious that the spells changed names during the revision process, and an editing pass didn't catch this.

Fix that one problem and you've got a dead solid perfect, rules light action/horror game.

Thanks for the kind words, Chris! I apologize for the typos. In point of fact, there were way many than I imagined -- I figured there might be a couple, but not this many. I have renamed this PDF the "Playtest Version", because in addition to the typos, a few people have pointed out a couple of system issues. Between that and my insufficient editing, I think it's best to change the name to reflect the partially-complete status of this game. Again, I really appreciate the review! I hope to update the game's text later in the year to bring it up to snuff.
