Want to be help playtest Alternity? Sign up here!
As we move through the design and development of the Alternity system, we want to engage our potential players and collect feedback regarding game play, especially where new and updated mechanics are introduced. Over the coming months, we’ll be sharing elements of the game through a downloadable PDF playtest packet.
We’ll start with a fairly straightforward Combat Demo. It includes a rules summary, with our core mechanic, brief skill and gear descriptions, an overview of the combat rules, a short adventure scenario, and pregenerated characters. We want players to read through the rules, and then set aside a couple hours to play through the combat scenarios in the adventure.
We want to get it out there to not only give interested fans an early look at the current state of the game, but also to get feedback on the feel of the game. We’ll be asking our playtesters to give us general thoughts, and also address specific questions regarding one or two game subsystems with which we are experimenting.
We will be using DriveThruRPG to send out the playtest PDFs, so if you are interested in being an Alternity Playtester, please input your email address below and hit the Submit button. Once the PDF is ready, you’ll get a notification from DriveThruRPG with instructions on how to download it. Sign up today!
Update: we’ve removed the email signup for now, as we’ve already sent files to our first wave of playtesters. Stay tuned for when the next wave of playtests will be ready!
