D&D 4e Playtesters Required

By on 7 January 2009

Sceaptune Games are looking for playtesters for the more challenging supplements they’re producing. It involves playing with the new classes, equipment, monsters and scenarios that appear in their supplements, seeing how they feel and making sure that odd results are dice-dependent rather than a result of the supplement itself. They are looking for basic feedback as well as anything specific that turns up (e.g “I’d never choose this power” or “I’d ALWAYS choose this power”, both of which are uncomfortable extremes).

If you’re interested, do get in touch, either via PM or email or via our website. Let them know whether you’d be playing or running (as a GM) and how much 4e, D&D and general roleplaying experience you have, and if you are a GM who you’d be inviting to play their stuff with.

As common with much playtesting, testers get a free PDF of the finished product and an acknowledgement. The formalities are merely that you’ll have to sign a confidentiality agreement or acknowledge you’ve agreed to it. If they have enough playtesters, they’d also open up a yahoo/google group for it, too.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
