SUN-02 Spectrum: Time-Travel (4 / 5)

Post by Allan Dotson » July 1st, 2017, 7:15 pm

Spectrum is my self-published time-travel RPG.

I created Spectrum because I wasn't satisfied with how other games handled time travel. Yes, you can travel anywhere and anywhen in time and space, but you can also do really weird things with time travel, like alter scenes already in play, meet yourself, call on your past or future selves for help, remember things that haven't happened yet, solve problems before they happen, and play events out of sequence.

Spectrum is GM-led, uses playing cards, and a simple core mechanic for physical and social interactions (card draw+Trait to achieve target number), to allow the players and the Guide to focus on the complexities of really detailed time travel.

I published Spectrum in 2013, and it's seen a lot of playtesting, so I won't consider this to be playtest. However, I do plan to try out a new demo scenario I've only run once before. We'll be using pre-gen characters.

Lisa and I played last year and it was a really neat game. I bought the PDF, but would like a hard copy. Alan, will you be bringing any this year? We'd like to grab one.

If you are willing to guide those totally new to the game, Michael (my husband) and I would love to join in on this!

I love having both return players and new players. It actually seems very appropriate for a non-linear time-travel story.

Looking forward to playing with you all!
