People have been asking me how the Peculiar Tales role-playing game is coming along. I figured now would be a good time to tell you a bit about that. Last weekend, I had another playtest session with friends. The game is in a good place right now. Peculiar Tales is shaping up to be a fun, rules-light, story-driven romp of zany investigations and adventures. 

The four characters, who banded together as private paranormal investigators, are: 
  • Melvin the Great: An elf stage magician and con-artist.
  • Professor Groot: An ogre and professor of crypto-technologies at Clockwork City University.
  • Miss Elianor: An elf medium, able to read auras and speak with the spirits. Recently released from the insane asylum. 
  • Nuk: A goblin burglar who dabbles in mechanics and conspiracy theories. 
Here are they types of adventures they've had so far: 
  • While trying to track down a smuggling operation, they stumbled into a district of Clockwork City infested with mind-altering prehistoric plants. They had to travel back in time, evading dinosaurs and an imminent meteor strike, to find the resources they needed to stop the infestation. 
  • A rich, eccentric scientist hired the group to find his missing brain. The scientist had died in a train crash, but his brain was meant to go into a replacement body. Now the brain is missing. Who stole it? And why? 
  • The group investigated a sleepy town, built around a coal mine, because the local church was reporting strange happenings. Turns out an ancient Scymant burial ground was located under the church, and ancient curses were seeping up and affecting others. To make matters worse, a pair of mad scientists were creating mole-people hybrids to boost coal mining efficiency, and those hybrids are getting dangerously close to the burial ground too. 
  • Working with Katya, an elf researcher from the Clockwork City museum, and Morriva, a young scymant scholar, the group found themselves commissioning local mad scientist Zeno Mac Louis to build them a machine that could restore the ancient markings found at the Scymant burial site. What secrets do they hold? Of course, there was also the matter of getting Zeno out of trouble for his exorbitant debts towards the local mafia. 

Right now I'm in the process of writing the rulebook. The character creation chapter is finished and I'm now working on the rules chapter. Next will be the gazetteer and the Game Master's sections. My goal is to have a finished PDF of the rulebook before the start of 2020. 

I hope you all find that interesting, and I'm curious to hear any questions of comments. Also, if I were to provide a sampling of Edemian characters as examples of character rules within the game, who would you all like to see?
