Kickstarter – Casting the Runes

Six days left to back this project if you are interested.

My exposure to GUMSHOE has been limited but I know it’s a really good system. This Kickstarter project wants to use this system to create a roleplaying game that focuses on investigation of the unnatural.

Casting the Runes the roleplaying game is powered by the GUMSHOE game engine, the perfect rules for investigation and tense, supernatural events. Set in the Edwardian Era (approximately 1901-1910, during the reign of King Edward VII of Great Britain), players take on the roles of occult investigators: antiquarians, scholars, archivists, archaeologists, detectives, and so on, exploring the supernatural and uncovering arcane and esoteric mysteries. The GUMSHOE engine, created by renowned game designer Robin Laws, has been carefully tailored to the ghost story genre, and everything you need to explore the Edwardian world and create your own Jamesian stories is included in one book.

The project has been already backed and 6 days remain until the backing period ends. If you want to get an idea of the game, you can check out the preview on DriveThruRPG.
