[Postmortem] Courtesans Released

Much anticipated Historical RPG/Story Game/Thingy Courtesans has been released.

Courtesans casts it’s players as one of the remarkable free spirited women who dared to challenge the repressive “morals” of their society in a half world known as the Demi Monde.

Tragedy and heartbreak await for sure but also joy, beauty, freedom and of course lots of fumbling around in expensive boudoirs.

It is a little light hearted and cartoony but can also be taken a bit more seriously by the right group.

For your “Rhino” you are guaranteed…

  • An RPG like no other
  • A distinct lack of unladylike combat
  • A an adversarial game of Intrigue, Jealousy and Betrayal but also friendly banter and maybe even love if you’re lucky.
  • A game that respects its subject matter whilst having a rollicking good bawdy laugh
  • A minimum of provactive art… mainly due to lack of space!

Can be bought in print or PDF.

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.
