Heart Playtest Game


Heart is an upcoming game by Grant Howitt and Chris Taylor, currently in playtest. It is based in the same world as their previous game, Spire, and uses the same basic core mechanics. Heart is a game of perilous exploration into the dark Heart of Spire, a twisted nightmare underworld with a malevolent will. Those who venture into the Heart are either stupidly brave, desperate, or deluded. While strange treasures can be found within the Heart, it is more likely the delvers will find an untimely end, and those who return often do so changed. However, despite this, you will put together a band of delvers who decide to risk everything in pursuit of their goals.

There will be 4 sessions in total, and sessions will last for 3 hours. Being able to attend each session is ideal but not required. You must RSVP to each session you wish to attend. Some familiarity with the setting of Spire is desirable, but not required.

Heart is a dark fantasy game, veering quite heavily into the world of horror. Sometimes brutal violence, loss, and scenes of desperation will be the norm. As those familiar with Spire might anticipate, there is also a degree of body horror as well as threats to character’s mind and senses. The Gauntlet Inclusivity Policy will be in play and safety tools (Script Change and X-Card) will be in use.
