January 26, 2010: Call For Playtesters: GURPS Plant Magic (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=January&y=2010&d=26)

Scott Maykrantz's GURPS Plant Magic expands the Plant college with 40 new spells. Use them to arm a druid, ranger, woodland elf, creepy gardener, spellcasting tree-man, or even a predatory witch in an enchanted forest. The spells cover a wide range of effects: deadly attacks, new curses, alteration, camouflage, and shaping wood into useful objects. In addition to new spells, this supplement also provides plant-related supporting information, including basic stats for all kinds of vegetation and modifiers for Plant Empathy and Speak With Plants.</p>

We need playtesters for this new supplement. Playtesters should have access to the GURPS Basic Set (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/basic/), GURPS Magic (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/magic/), and possibly GURPS Thaumatology (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/thaumatology/). Close examination of the new spells will be a major part of the playtest. Comments from those who actually try these spells in play will be especially welcome and encouraged. Playtesters aren't required to have previous experience; how well this material comes across to new readers is important information that will help make this a better book! We encourage first-time playtesters to apply for a reserved portion of slots available, as well as those with professional or other real-life experience with the subject matter: Botanists, those with knowledge of legendary or mystical plant/herb properties, and folks with green thumbs are especially welcome! Prospective playtesters will also need to be registered e23 customers who have spent more than $50 at e23 in the past 12 months.</p>

Prospective playtesters should e-mail jwilson@io.com with [PM] (for "Plant Magic") in the subject, and include your preferred e-mail address for the closed playtest mailing list, correct spelling of your name as it may appear in print, your e23 login name, and a few words about your qualifications, experience, and current gaming group(s). Information about preferred submission formatting is in the forum post (http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?p=921338) for this playtest call.</p>
