Default A place for playtesters?

Hi, I've been away for some time but hope this is part of a 'comeback' for me in here! I've been hard at work to write some books, and on the side I am updating my old GURPS-like rpg set in the same world. Sadly I have exhaustted my base of external playtesters/testreaders since everyone now already know it too closely. Does anyone know where to look for 'fresh' playtesters/testreaders? Is there a forum in here that fits?

Post your questions in the GURPS forum. I'm sure you'll find a lot of vounteers. I might volunteer, if it sounds interesting.

He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them...he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.”

If it's modifications to GURPS rules, use the GURPS subforum.

If it's an entirely new RPG that shares similarities with GURPS, but is different enough so that assumptions carried over from GURPS might be false friends, post the request for playtesters in this subforum, as it is suitable for discussion of all other RPG systems, published and unpublished.

Thank you for the quick answers! At this point, it's far enough removed from GURPS to be its own thing, but they should be sort of compatible. So I guess, this forum :)

Expect some stuff soon!

You're also welcome to use Play by Post if you want a more play-ish playtest.

Isn't that just for people playing by email? If not, it would be perfect, at least once I get the rules written in a more... attractive language :)

No, those games are happening right in the forum.

Wow, I never really thought to check that in all those years. When the rules are better in place, I will definitely post something there! For now, I posted in this same forum, to show the world as it is being 'built'.

I gotta take some time to understand how you pay the games there, but tempting, ver tempting. However, right now the problem is that I can't find testers that aren't already too familiar with EoT, and I am, to put it mildly, familiar with it already :) I need fresh blood, for now. Later, yeah, I'll definitely try the postplay!
