Huzzah! Today marks my first official playtest of Questlandia, a roleplaying game about fictional characters in a fantasy kingdom, struggling to achieve their goals and stay true to their beliefs in the face of societal upheaval and wicked temptation.
The game is suitable for 3-5 players. Due to enthusiastic interest, we ended up with a total of 7. In a normal game, this would be too many people, but it worked for the playtest. We doubled up on a few characters, and the additional players provided helpful feedback and cozy body heat.
Despite a few mechanical kinks and “let’s just go with it and see if it works” moments, the game had a great tone, compelling characters, and the makings of a juicy plotline. Thanks to playtesters Sam, Evan, Emily, Joshua, Mark, and Matthew for a wonderful game!
