So, Blood Simple has been a pdf of a Sorcerer setting for years now and just recently Per Fischer and his posse have picked it up for some play. Seeing other people play it is a hoot, it was one of those neat little things that I had tinkered with, played a bit and set aside. I haven't asked people to playtest it and haven't pursued it in any aggressive manner.
But that coupled with some conversations here have got me thinking that maybe something that goes on in an informal way at the Forge should be somehow formalized.
I am picturing game designers with playtestable documents in various stages of development, swapping games, playtesting them and then swapping feedback. They would make sure the games work for all participating swappers (number of people, stuff, time and space needed to play, etc.) and play each other's games over the course of a few weeks or whatever time they set aside and also formalize how comments will be made because without comments, playtests do not mean shit.
So, I dunno, thoughts or people can gather here who need to set up a Playtest Swap Circle or folks can throw rocks at me or something.
