Baker Street, the RPG based in the world of Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic detective Sherlock Holmes, enjoyed a successful time on Kickstarter and now has been released for you to solve the mystery.
This game, published by Fearlight Games, takes place during the time when Sherlock Holmes is presumed dead after taking a trip to Reichenbach. Players take on the role of investigators tasked by Dr Watson to take on some of the cases that are building up in Holmes’ absence.
The game boasts 30 careers to choose from, as well as 25 criminal extras and rules to create your very own Moriarties to deal with, helping you to recreate the experience of solving formidable crimes with your incredible deductive skills.
The Sherlock Holmes books, as a setting, are a rich source for role playing and I am surprised it has taken this long to receive a dedicated rule set. I will be very interested to hear what people’s experiences are like with this.
Do you think you’ll take on this case? Will you be picking it up on DriveThruRPG?
Thanks to ghent99 for giving us the heads up about this release.
