Satanic Panic: Playtest Documents

Watermarked PDF

People whisper in hushed tones about a corruption taking hold in the world. A secret wildfire spreading from basement to basement called tabletop. Some say it is evil, some say it is turning their kids into monsters, and some say it is summoning demons.

…and every whisper rings true.

Tabletop is bringing evil into the world and turning people into monsters and you are one of the few that stand against this evil. You can stop tabletop.

Satanic Panic is a tabletop roleplaying game set in the fictional 1970’s and 1980’s where players take on the role of secret government agents tasked with combating the evils of tabletop. The players work as a team with the common purpose to contain, control, and eliminate the threats to our world. They must do all this while keeping the truth from the public, lest a panic ensue.

The game will be a 200-page hardcover book with everything needed for a GM and 2-6 players. It is designed so that the game can be played as a traditional RPG campaign or can be played in an episodic fashion with different numbers and arrangements of players. Satanic Panic brings modern game design principles to traditional tabletop game play. It gives the players all the power they need to fight against the forces of evil while making their every decision have long term consequences.

Join us in the fight against evil, join us in the fight against tabletop.

So is this getting released any time soon? I couldn't access the third act publishing store, nor could I find a way to contact Jim. Is there any way other than facebook to contact you to ask a question, mate?

The playtest document is great, more than enough to convince me to buy the game when it comes out. Can't help but notice, though, that there isn't an equipment list. I'd like to jump right in and run some Satanic Panic with my group, but it's hard to do without SOME kind of equipment list to spend that team budget on!

You are 100% correct. The original upload did not have equipment lists in the document. We've updated to correct that so the current one will list equipment near the end, following character sheets and abilities. We've removed the old one from the list to hopefully avoid confusion.

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.
