I have developed the bare bones of an adventure and
had originally thought to run it using Fate or possibly d20 Modern. However, I
was rereading Lorefinder, which I own, and as the adventure idea I came up with
is a mystery I thought that the Gumshoe system might be the thing. Taking a
look at the Gumshoe settings available Esoterrorists seemed to be closest to
what I had come up with but the free sampler didn't really answer the questions
I had in my own head about how suitable it would be nor did any of the reviews
I read really get to the crux of my reticence to splash out on the game. Maybe
someone here might comment?
The adventure is set in modern-day London. The PCs are a group of British law
officers belonging to an organisation that investigate serial killers,
ritualistic murders, terrorism, etc (kind of a British equivalent to the
Criminal Minds team).
The antagonist is an eco-occultist seeking to
reduce the world population through mass murder (or possibly mass infertility)
through occult means (e.g. rituals), causing manipulation of others' behaviour
(possibly and/or demonic possession but I may want to keep it Dark Other Side
free) to achieve her ends.
My question is - would Esoterrorists allow for this
kind of scenario, or is there a premise in the setting that would cause issues?
