Default Call for Playtesters: GURPS Steampunk 3: Soldiers and Scientists

We are seeking playtesters for GURPS Steampunk 3: Soldiers and Scientists, by Phil Masters. This is a follow-up to GURPS Steampunk 1: Settings and Style and the upcoming GURPS Steampunk 2: Steam and Shellfire, which themselves build off the classic GURPS Third Edition supplement GURPS Steampunk. Steampunk 3 is the "characters book," discussing character features such as new Talents, perks, Codes of Honor, quirks, skill specialties, wildcards, martial arts, and so on, along with a very large collection of racial and character templates and lenses, from artillerymen through explorers and ingenues to magicians.

We are primarily seeking applicants with experience in or knowledge of real Steam Age society and of steampunk fiction and fashion, or an enthusiastic interest in running steampunk games. Applicants should ideally be familiar with, at minimum, the GURPS Basic Set and the aforementioned GURPS Steampunk 1: Settings and Style, as well as the Third Edition supplement GURPS Steampunk. However, fresh eyes may be useful, so please feel free to apply if you think you have something to contribute.

This supplement combines both "crunchy" game details and flavorful steampunk-genre elements, so we will be looking for comments on both game mechanics and atmosphere and style; the templates occupy by far the largest part of it, though, so anyone prepared to check the numbers and mechanics there, in excruciating detail, will be gratefully welcomed. We expect the playtest to be very active for about three weeks, and then to remain open to hammer out details for as long as the author requires after the initial feedback period.

The playtest is currently scheduled to run from September 3 to September 24. We would ideally have all applications by August 30.

Preferential playtest slots will be given to those who have spent at least $50 on PDFs from Warehouse 23 in the past calendar year, though this is not a requirement. For more, see the general playtest information page.

Prospective playtesters should email Roger Burton West at with [playtest] in the subject. Include your preferred email address for the closed playtest mailing list, your name as you wish it to appear in the published supplement, your Warehouse 23 login name, and a few words on why we should pick you: qualifications, experience, current gaming group(s), etc. Please submit in this format:

I'm a GM with 10 years' experience, and have been running GURPS campaigns
for seven years; I have playtest credit on three previous supplements. I've
been running a Steampunk game for the past six years. In my spare time, I
tinker with steam-powered gizmos.
We look forward to hearing from you!
