The Night of the Jackals

Please post here if you're trying to gauge interest in a NEW game, which you'd like to run on Play@YSDC

The Night of the Jackals

Postby HoneyDog » Fri Dec 01, 2017 3:03 pm

London, 1891. Former Members of a British Army infantry regiment are being murdered. The investigators must uncover the secrets which link an incident in war-torn Sudan to an ancient evil, and prevent it from rising again.

This is a Gaslight adventure from the 3rd edition sourcebook. Please sign up if you want to play!

A special shout goes out to andyw666 and Mr. Handy, if you’re still interested, and to fellow Gaslight enthusiast Wruter.

Yes, I'd like to play too. I even have a ready-made character: Reginald Smythe, my character from Bad Company (which sadly was never completed) who had fought in Sudan. That one took place in 1900, so I'd just have to make him younger.

Great Mr. H. We can do it with a minimum of 2, but lets wait a little longer. I'm not sure if Andy will join us.

You can use your character - I have some stipulations on this, the main one being that all the characters know each other already. Being former or serving members of the same army unit would be ideal. But I'll discuss this more later.

You're certainly welcome to join HelplessBystander.

That's 3 players, enough to start the game. Mr. Handy, would you mind setting up the forum? You can use this as the blurb:

Hi Juulm

Sure you can join. The players are still working on their characters so we haven't started yet. Please have a look at the forum to see what you need to do, and feel free to ask any questions. I think you'll need to be validated by Mr. Handy before you can post though.

Welcome, Juulm! I've validated you, so you can now post on the game boards.

Any Keeper can validate any player, but I don't think the instructions have been posted anywhere. That's something I'll have to do when I have time, but that probably won't be for at least a couple of weeks.
