Esoterrorists, the new game from Pelgrane Press written by Robin Laws will be on sale at Dragonmeet on Saturday. This game uses the new GUMSHOE system. I've got a copy and it looks pretty damn nifty. Jerome Hugenin has done a smashing job with the art and layout and they've gone for the original cover art with the guy coming down the cellar steps and the title at the bottom. There will be peelable stickers to put on the cover for retailers who only display the top third of books.

I'll be running some short demos of the game from 11-12 and again from 3-5 if anyone wants to drop by and give it a go. These will be in 30 minute slots.

Hmm
I was hoping I could get into a demo after gamer wives...

Hmm. Is anyone else running demos, so you don't have to suffer me all day ;-).

Re: Hmm
Judging by previous years, there'll be loads of demos.
If it's the actual companies running them, they'll often have a table near their stall which usually means a lot of noise from the trade hall.

Re: Hmm
The indie games crowd will be running demos all day. The Collective Endeavour will be there amongst others, running Cold City, Best Friends, Contenders, Covenant etc.

Re: Hmm
I want a demo of esoterroists because I want to take a look at the gumshoe system though.

Re: Hmm
There will be sign up sheets, possibly on the Pelgrane Press stand. If you know what time you want, they are in 30 minute slots, I can put your name down before the doors open.

Not that I know of :). I wanted to go the funeral of INS/MV in Paris but I'm low on cash. I am actually going to the UK but the week-end after next, to visit a friend in the Manchester area.

My first thought was "gal, not guy" too, but when I went back and looked at the art it was ambigous. Which is really perfect ;-)

Esoterrorists? Activists for a secret clique? Or to keep the world secret?

Either way, this is on my list, if only for Gumshoe.

I can put one in the post - in the spirit of your impending yuletide watershed, although something of Wick's might be more appropriate.

Hey, I won't ever say no to free games. In fact, I'd pay money for free games.

Iiinteresting. Not least because this is the system Hite's using for his new Cthulhu game, I think. I shall add a demo to my DM possibles. (In fact I can see me hanging around the indie area for a lot of the day.) Do we have a price for Esoterrorists?
