Announcing Baker Street!

Earlier this year, Fearlight Games announced a deal with the Conan Doyle Estate to produce the Sherlock Holmes RPG. We have been diligently working on this project and have about 80% of it through layout. We have been so busy that we haven’t said much about the project, but now we're happy to announce some details.

First off, we want to thank everyone for their comments, suggestions, and feedback thus far. Without fans this project will never get off the ground. It’s in that vein that we want to thank all the fans with a special first day offer. If you back the Kickstarter of Baker Street: Roleplaying in the World of Sherlock Holmes on January 21st (day 1 of the Kickstarter) you will receive a special Sherlock Die as a thank you. Get your friends and fellow players in on the action by telling them about this article and our social media sites (we are on Facebook and Google+).

Secondly, it has been decided, that while we want to offer you a playable product right after the Kickstarter, we also would love more input from Sherlock fans and RPG enthusiasts. Therefore, all backers will get a playtest PDF as soon as the Kickstarter ends. The playtest PDF contains all of the rules that you need to play. You’ll have 6 months to kick the tires, run some adventures, and provide us with feedback. All of your valued input will go into the finished version that will be published in late summer of 2014.

It is important to note that the game system uses regular d6s, but uses one special Sherlock Die that is included in every roll. Don't worry. You can simulate the results on any d6 if necessary, but we want to get that die into your hands for playtesting. After the successful completion of the Kickstarter, everyone who backs the project at the PDF level or better, will get 2 Sherlock Dice (one for the Mastermind and one for the investigators) mailed to their house. If you want more, we have the means to offer you more.

So what’s in the book?
- Some 35 different Victorian professions for investigator creation.
- A Victorian “rogues gallery” of criminals with over 26 kinds of Victorian Reprobates.
- An introductory adventure based on one of Sherlock’s original cases.
- Stats for all the major NPCs in the Sherlock World.
- All of the rules for investigations, combats, and villain creation.

For stretch goals, we have a treasure trove of talent lined up for Baker Street. As we hit each goal, a new writer will contribute their own adventure that will be added to the core book and released in August of 2014. Some of our stretch goal writers are:

John Goff, of Deadlands Fame
Skip Williams, Designer of 3.5 Dungeons and Dragons
Cynthia Celeste Miller, Designer of the Cartoon Action Hour
Jeff Siadek, Creator of Battlestations
Jamie Chambers, Designer of the Serenity RPG

So there are some fantastic things in the works here at Fearlight Games, but we need fans and backers. This is our company's first big project and we are excited! Join our website, our facebook page, our Google + page. Tell your friends about the project and let them know it'll be coming in January. 

Thanks for your support!
