The Veil: Iterations Playtest

THIS IS A PLAYTEST. This is for the first of a quarterly series The Veil , a PbtA game of a cyberpunk future. I love The Veil, it’s one of my favorite games, but I have run into some frictions running it. This is going to be my 1.5 version of The Veil , tuned to what I’m interested in and how I run. This means it will veer away from some of the themes, systems, and tone of the original Veil .

Rules will be taught Attendance at all sessions is strongly encouraged. One seat is being reserved. In session one we will discuss safety & tone, create characters, flesh out our world, and move into play.

Our plan will be to play in three one month blocks. This will still be a quarterly game and fun to play, so characters can be consistent across the sessions. But at the end of each month we’ll do a little debrief, see what needs to be tuned, and make changes going into the following months. We may also change things on the fly if they clear don’t work.

We will use Zoom for our sessions. I’ll email all players about a week before the first session with the necessary links. Sessions will run up to three hours. We will plan to record, but I will confirm this with the players. The Gauntlet Code of Conduct will be in play and we will use Lines & Veils and the X-Card for safety tools.

If you sign up and your availability changes, please remember to drop from the site and give me a heads up.
