[Conspiracy X] Welcome to a New Bodyguard of Lies

A few years back I rediscovered Eden Studios’ interesting game of aliens and the supernatural; Conspiracy X (now in a superb 2nd edition). As was my want at the time, I threw together a little website to collect together my thoughts on the game and to act as an outlet for a few creative Con X ideas that I had bobbing about. While this did result in a number of articles being thrown up, the approach as a whole never really went anywhere, competing as it does with my various other projects (such as this very site – unboundbook.org!). However, rather than just abandon everything I have created, and with a view towards consolidation, I have now transferred everything of real interest to pages within Unbound Publishing.

To ‘celebrate’ this event I’ve also released one of the many ConX scenario ideas I’ve tinkered with over the years – Blue on Blue – along with – from that old site – an interview I did with the 2nd Edition author Dave Chapman, and a rather harsh review of the aforementioned core Conspiracy X 2nd Edition Rulebook.

[The Esterrorists] A Night on the Town – A 2nd Edition Demonstration Scenario

With the release of the second edition of The Esoterrorists (published by Pelgrane Press in 2013), I thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce this game to a group of my fellow roleplayers. As I’m sure many of you reading this post have found, the GUMSHOE system brings a new paradigm to the game table, one that at first sight can be disconcerting to even the most experienced gamer. As such, I thought it would be a good idea to create a scenario that did for the Esoterrorists what Kevin Kulp’s Stowaway Quick Start did for Ashen Stars.

Set in northern England in the midst of the Great War, this investigative adventure draws the characters into a mystery with a simple letter…

The Esoterrorists – Geist in the Shell

Geist in the Shell is a The Esoterrorists scenario specifically designed to kickstart a new campaign. Short on answers but long on questions, it presents a foundation from which a Game Master and their players can create their own The Esoterrorists mystery.

Dire Consequences – A Gaslight Scenario

With the Grand Reorganisation of the Unbound Publishing site and a renewed personal interest in the Call of Cthulhu game setting, I’ve restarted work on one of my older project – Dire Consequences.

I aim to have the completed supplement out around September this year (about a year after Monophobia), but will aim to release a number of teasers and drafts for both interest sake and to see what the playing public think of my approach.
