Night’s Black Agents – Dracula Dossier [Prelude]

I played the first session of our Dracula Dossier this weekend. I will likely post a short actual play recap to outline what occurred. I am very much looking forward to this game.

Last week we met and built characters and discussed our campaign.

Our cast includes:

  • Svetlana – Played by Lesley – Russian Special Forces Medic
  • Beryl – Played by Tina – British MI6 Infiltration Specialist
  • Kurt – Played by myself – German Expatriate, Former Stasi Bagman (If you want to read more about Kurt, let me tell you more about my character)

In preparation for our game, our GM directed us to an blog post from a Night’s Black Agents GM called A Fight Gone Wrong. In short, it suggests that Gumshoe games are secretly a diceless RPG. Essentially any action worth taking with General Abilities is worth spending enough points to automatically succeed. While I’ve played and run several Gumshoe games over the years, I must admit that this altered the way I look at this system.
