      About the Game
    • Info on Esoterrorists background: You are elite investigators combating the plots of the Esoterrorists, a loose affiliation of occult terrorists intent on tearing the fabric of the world and letting the monsters in. Unlike other investigative roleplaying games, The Esoterrorists’ GUMSHOE rules system ensures that the plot never grinds to a halt due to a failed die roll. As top paranormal detectives, you never fail in your areas of expertise. When necessary, you can expend extra effort to glean more from the evidence than any plodding journeyman could hope to find.
    • Pregenerated characters?: Yes, they are provided.


      Credits
    • This scenario is "A NIGHT ON THE TOWN--A THE ESOTERRORISTS DEMONSTRATION SCENARIO BY MARCUS D. BONE"

      About this Scenario--AUTHOR’S NOTE
    • "A Night on the Town has been written as a demonstration scenario for The Esoterrorists RPG. It arose after the author realised that the GUMSHOE system brought a specific set of expectations to the gaming table. These skills, while easy to learn, can be difficult to explain without examples, and are best demonstrated in play."
    • "As a note, this scenario was originally written as filler session in a larger The Esoterrorists campaign, and was designed specifically to introduce a new player to the game."
    • "The author would also like to attribute thanks to Kevin Kulp for his excellent demonstration scenario ‘Stowaway’ (available as a free pdf at http://www.pelgranepress.com), without which this adventure would have never been written."

    I played in the good Hector Trelanes one shot of The Esoterrorists on Sunday.
    Great props and fun adventure.
    I grabbed a screenshot from about half way thru the session.

    I would love to sign up for this, we haven't played in a game together since you ran Fiasco. Unfortunately this starts before the game I am running ends.

    Welcome, MayDar, to the forum and the game! I've reserved you a seat, along with Stx11 and jvkdsh. We've got a quorum, so the game is on!

    Greetings, Ellspeth. Let's be sure to get in a game together soon. (I've been on a long absence for work reasons but now I'm back in the saddle.)
