  • Playtest Group Applications (Ends October 25th, 2014)

    As part of my ongoing efforts to improve our game design process for both A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying and the Chronicle System, Iíve decided to put together a team of playtesters who can reliably receive the material we send, play through the material and then offer valuable and constructive feedback.

    It is important that this is actually played, rather than merely read through, as part of the purpose is to ascertain how enjoyable the play is, rather than merely a conceptual ďbalance.Ē

    To qualify as one of our groups, there must be at least three people in a playtest group, all of whom must sign NDAs. One person in the group will act as the Contact Person for that group with me directly, and Iíll be providing materials to those individuals directly. At least one person in the group must be willing to do a write-up within a specific deadline period, an after-report that is sent to me. This report should include their thoughts, but also those of the rest of their group. More than one person may write such after-reports, of course - the more information we get, the better the products.

    In addition to a sneak peek at upcoming material, Playtesters will receive credit in the books they contribute feedback on, as well as the occasional freebie from your grateful developer. Iíll also be planning on putting together a single game at GenCon every year for the sole attendance of our playtest teams, to give us some time to hang out and game a little together.

    If you are interested, please copy and paste the following questions into an email, answer them and then send it to by no later than October 25th. Iíll be selecting groups over this coming week, and should get everyone their NDAs by the end of October.
