Alpha Demo Goes Live
« on: May 11, 2020, 02:23:16 PM »
A limited alpha/demo version of the game is now online here:

The Larkwood Affair Alpha

It consists of a few rooms in The Old Vine hotel. Stats are arbitrarily set at 80 each. There's a couple of dice rolls and the NPCs have limited chat.

This is mainly to test the base system works okay in terms of movement and interaction.

Thanks for anyone who can give it a go  :)

Much thanks to the people who tested my little demo. It seems the engine and general idea is in place.

I've found that it's difficult to write a campaign and write the engine/mechanics at the same time. So I have found an interesting campaign that a guy wrote several years ago for the Call of Cthulhu role playing game and which he released with a creative commons licence. So what I have decided to do is take the adventure from there and develop the game (and probably some aspects of the engine) around it.

So I have the creative direction I need now and can get on with making the game. More will be revealed as time goes on, I have no idea how long this will take me, but I will keep the Larkwood alpha up and running in case anyone else passes by who is interested - and there will probably be things that I need to test so I will try those out on the alpha.
