    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.





    About this Scenario

    SIX PACKED
    From Pelgrane Press

    A fast-play adventure for The Esoterrorists

    A mutilated corpse is found hanging a slaughterhouse, bullet wounds in the shoulders, elbows and knees. It looks like a terrorist punishment killing, but there are subtle clues pointing at Esoterrorist involvement...

    Can you stop a terrible chain of events before the world wakes up to headlines which weaken the Membrane and let the creatures of unremitting horror pierce the Outer Black?


    Six Packed is a stand-alone adventure for The Esoterrorists, designed to be played in 3-4 hours with minimal preparation. In playtest, hearts were racing as the mystery had to be solved before the deadline.

    Six Packed also features creatures designed by Dave Allsop and developed by Adrian Bott.

    THIS GAME IS LIKE CALL OF CTHULU in a modern setting, for those new to it. I liken it to an X-Files-style investigation series, but one in which investigators seek to COVER UP the truth, rather than expose (and dangerously spread) it.

    For background, see posts on this thread here and here.

    Gwyn is a boy’s name. Were you thinking Gwen?

    Welcome to the forums, Dimbyd!

    Gwyn is listed as a Welsh girl's name here:
    https://www.wales101.com/welsh-baby-girls-names-gz
    Gwyn (White, blessed, fortunate)

    ... and of course, since I found it on the Internet, it must be true, eh?

    Thanks for your interest in the game--do you plan to join us?

    I’d go for Gwynne as the spelling for a woman- never known a Welsh woman named Gwyn.

    (I live in Wales)

    I love GUMSHOE, if I’m properly awake on Saturday, I’d be happy to join you, if there’s a free space.

    Okay I'll update her name to Gwynne (or Gwyneth). Thanks for the tip.

    Yes there's a free space. This time slot is early morning in the USA where I live, better time zone in the UK.

    P.S. I visited Cardiff on my honeymoon and loved it!
