I don’t really consider myself a game designer, more like a hacky writer, but I have been having a pretty good time working with my friend Andrew developing a Sherlock Holmes inspired Roleplaying game.
We’re basing the game around the literary trope of “the Great Detective”, with Sherlock Holmes being the obvious choice for an initial offering.
Andrew’s put up a playtest document here, on his website Pizza Pranks (which I designed and built for him*). Please, if you’re interested in such things, download it, play it, read it, let me know. It is still in a very very crude, “pre-alpha” state, so please bear that in mind.
*I'd be happy to create a custom website for you as well, just e-mail me and we can talk about it.
