Ladies' Mystery Society Alpha Playtest Document

One of my many projects is a version of GUMSHOE that emulates the "detective of leisure" genre familiar from Murder, She Wrote and many cozy mysteries. I call this game Ladies' Mystery Society, and I released the alpha playtest document via Patreon in March. Now I'm sharing it with you here.

This is a full game that includes the relevant sections of the GUMSHOE System Reference Document. I've also included a link to some pregenerated characters so you can get started playing right away. I'm hoping to have a demo adventuready soon.
If you would like to support this and other game designs, please consider becoming a patron at my Patreon campaign:

Dungeon Crate, May 2016

For my birthday last month, my friends got me a subscription to DungeonCrate.  This service is the RPG-focused entry in the current "crate" craze, where you pay a subscription fee and a box of themed stuff is sent to your home monthly, quarterly, or whatever. Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.
