If you build it… #OccultDetectiveRPG

Posted in Occult Detective: The Roleplaying Game, Occult Detectives on April 6, 2018 by Occult Detective


Back in the proverbial saddle after a long hiatus from game development. It feels good to shake the dust off and revisit this game and to know that we are finally moving in the right direction.

I aim to have all the rulebooks completed by the end of May and the final playtesting to commence over the summer, then we’ll be launching a kickstarter and see what dreams may come…

There is a steep learning curve, but we’re up to the challenge. We aim to deliver, first and foremost, a game that will fire your imagination, but we want it to include a full line of miniatures, game maps, scenarios, and all the bells and whistles that a quality board game brings to the table, but with an RPG’s narrative sensibilities.

I’ll be reaching out to some folks to help elevate the game beyond my wildest imaginings. We’re looking to build something special here and I think we’re on track to drag it kicking and screaming into reality.

I am reminded of a place I used to live, far off the beaten path, in the rural wilds of Indiana. Atop a hill overlooking a coursing stream my friends and I constructed rings of stone around a fire pit. I painted runes upon the stones, and smiling, I said, “If you build it, they will come” to which my friend Shaun quipped, “Oh, great, now we’re in Bob’s Field of Bad Dreams”.

Yes. Yes you are…

Occult Detective: The Roleplaying Game is coming. And Magick is coming with it.
