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.
The result is A Night on the Town – a Demonstration Scenario for The Esoterrorists 2nd Edition. A short scenario based around an ‘infiltrate and scram’ adventure, it comes with notes for inexperienced GUMSHOE Gamemasters, and a sampling of Ordo Veritatis operatives.
