Who Would You One-2-One With Over the Holidays, Chris Spivey?

confidential2Cthulhu Confidential, the flagship title for GUMSHOE One-2-One, is now available for pre-order! GUMSHOE One-2-One is designed for two players: a GM and a player who takes the role of a solo investigator, solving Mythos mysteries. In Cthulhu Confidential our PCs are hard-boiled shamus Dex Raymond, investigative journalist Vivian Sinclair, and private eye Langston Montgomery Wright.

We asked the Pelgranistas—as well as some friends of Pelgrane—which fictional characters they’d most like to have a GUMSHOE One-2-One mystery adventure with. This is One-2-One author Chris Spivey’s choice:

sisko-and-chris_400Captain Benjamin Sisko

Captain Benjamin Sisko is my first choice, followed closely by The Doctor (7th or 10th) and Nick (and Nora) Charles. Why Sisko for One-2-One? Sisko is a soldier and a diplomat, and he understands the complexity of racial history. He has all of the Starfleet values and a brilliant mind, and it would be an incredible ride to watch him unearth the horrors of the Mythos. He’d punch out racist cops and, at the end of the day, do whatever it takes (breaking laws and compromising his values) to do the right thing. Sure, he’ll feel remorse for those actions, but he knows he would do it again. Sisko lives within shades of grey so that others can live in the light.
