This Saturday past, I ran a session of the Gumshoe time traveller TimeWatch, by Kevin Kulp, at the Dragonmeet convention in Kensington. Not yet finished, funded or available (my understanding is it’ll be Kickstarted some time soon), I ran it from a playtest copy of the rules and a very brief outline for an adventure. I
Mainframe Access Protocol activated. User Kincaid, KC, authorised. Voice recognition and recording protocols initiated by user. Processing… RX Team 34C1/44 – Foreign Element allocation: 0.13 / Reconnaissance Resource: 0.24 So, look. I should have made a record of this days ago, but I’ve been busy. Can’t be assigned rotation management of four dozen RX teams and not
Ack! I just watched a YouTube video that runs the beginning and ending of Lost, so you can clearly see the parallels. Well, I couldn’t see much detail because of the rolling tears. I’m not too much of a man, or too dismissive of my emotions, to admit I just sobbed until my chest heaved.

While I’m getting my game sorted in my head, I shall use the blog as a bit of a scratch pad. Currently, I’m working on the basis of a historical game. I want to stick with something I know, and that happens to be Tudor England. For the moment that will suffice. I also have
