SS & S Playtest Last Night

As noted in the previous journal entry, the plans for last night's game changed somewhat, and I ran a playtest of a forthcoming adventure for the Shadow, Sword & Spell pulp (aka sword & sorcery) fantasy rpg.

The adventure went rather well, the player characters enjoying the opportunity to engage in a lot of sheer violence for the sake of being violent, with an edge of brutality to it. The Friday gaming group players gend to be a more cerebral lot when they play characters and the like, though they do have weapon and combat skills, but this scenario was just...fun. Not hack 'n slash, per sé, but just a good old-fashioned adventure where one could choose to fight everything that moved if one wishes. <g> And the scenario had some moments of humour to it as well, and that made it even better, in my opinion. :)

This isn't to say that the scenario has no thought required, and that the player characters don't need to use their brains at all. Quite the contrary. So it was a really fun adventure to run, and the players had a blast with it.

Btw, for folks in the Ottawa area, I'll be running another playtest of the adventure tomorrow, Sunday, at my place. I'm looking for a few folks who might be interested in playtesting the adventure, so either drop me a line or give me a call. I'm in the phone book. :)
