See Page XX: February 2012

This month’s Page XX is a bumper January/February edition. Our line-up this month includes the incomparable Robin D Laws with three columns. Two give advice on combat rules in Ashen Stars and the last holds a treasure-trove of writing tips, both for general prose and for roleplaying scenarios. A playtest group has provided us with a detailed report on their experience playtesting DramaSystem. We’ve got a bunch of new playtest opportunities – Robin’s new game, Hill Folk which uses the DramaSystem, Bill White’s New World, a world-building historical fantasy, and The Zalozhniy Quartet, a series of four linked adventures for Night’s Black Agents. Sticking with the vampire theme we have a reminder of the Conspyramid competition and a detailed guide to constructing and collapsing a conspiracy from James Palmer. Will Hindmarch gives us some updates for the opus that is the Eternal Lies campaign and his new post-apocalyptic GUMSHOE game, Razed. We have the monthly round-up of all things Pelgrane from Simon Rogers, the customary Poll, and for the first time we have an open call for artist to submit their work for consideration.

    I chose generic but I would have six panels at A4 size, as opposed to the usual landscape screens. I find that I like two regular landscape screens. Or co opt the Hackmaster screen for my nefarious purposes.

    I would like something for each game, but in the same format as the recent new Call of Cthulhu screen, that is landscape and think, glossy sides.

    Will there be ready-made artwork and refeere sheets to insert in the generic screen?

  4. Ron says:

    Ms Lewis’ response clinched the direction of my vote. Thanks for the clarification.

    I’ve never used the Trail Keeper’s Screen, though I bought it for the included resources book, which was excellent.
