[Bliss Stage] Playtest Call

We interrupt the ongoing essay.

I'm looking for playtesters for one of my games-in-development. The game is called Bliss Stage: Robot Combat in the Dreams of Tomorrow.

It is a reasonably dark game, focusing on issues of sex, love, betrayal and death amongst teenage robot pilots. It is heavily inspired by Evangelion and other anime. The mechanics are a relationship focused derivative of Vincent's Otherkind. There is a GM.

This sample text gives a pretty good idea of the tone.

If you are intersted in playtesting the game, contact me. I don't need readers or editors right now, nor do I need a long campaign. I need people to sit down for a few hours and give the rules a spin, and sadly I'm not in a position to do it myself.

E-mail me at taogames@gmail.com if you're interested. You can also respond to this post, if you feel like being an exhibitionist about it.

Sounds as interesting as Polaris, which I intend to buy as soon as my lunch money is sufficently stored away.

So to speak.

What's the medium for play? I.e., actual meet-up (wherever the hell you are right now) or IRC or...? :)

Christian --

The medium for play is simply tabletop. I won't be participating directly.

Sorry Ben, this didn't get played at Yuki Con, but not for want of pimpage on my part. I'll continue to try to round some folks up.

No problem. I know that Jon Walton is in the area and wants to play, so there's one.
