The Esoteric Order of Petersen Games
is a brand new program in which fans of Petersen Games can sign up to be “Acolytes” that demo our products in their game stores and run games at local conventions. Acolytes will be rewarded for building relationships with retailers, building communities in their stores, and running demos and tournaments at conventions. As Acolytes of The Order, they will be the first to get the latest on the development of our games and expansions coming out from Petersen Games. Often they will also get advanced copies of the game so they can have input on the development of the game itself. It is through The Order that we will be launching organized play in which the Acolyte works with the retailer to build organized play and community in their specific store. Interested parties should email TheOrder@PetersenGames.com for more information.

I think the Esoteric Order of Gamers (http://www.orderofgamers.com/) may be a bit annoyed at the name choice here.

They stole it from the same place we did:

'Esoteric Order of Dagon' mentioned in HPL's story "The Shadow over Innsmouth," so I'm not sure they can be rightfully upset.

That said, we were aware of them when we decided on this name. We have nothing against them, of course!

Night fell and the hours dragged on, but still we murmured to each other of the King and the Pallid Mask, and midnight sounded from the misty spires in the fog-wrapped city.

We spoke of Hastur and of Cassilda, while outside the fog rolled against the blank window-panes as the cloud waves roll and break on the shores of Hali.

I wish I had enough free time to commit to this
Consider me there in spirit, like a freshly offered human sacrifice.

If there is not another place, maybe we could be allowed to create a private unnofficial Facebook group?

Done. Until / unless an official group is made, we can use the Facebook group I created called "Playtesters of the PGEO". Let me know if you would like an invite.

Of course, the PG EO is not really a playtest group - perhaps we should make an official playtest FB group as well, Link? (for all outside playtesters, whether they are also involved in the EO or not)!

fantastic idea. I approve.

You should do a general post about it to get any interested folks to join, in the CW forum, plus TGW and even OMD forum?

Don't worry, you'll get responded to, I promise!

We have a dedicated guy handling this, but this isn't the only thing he handles, so it may take a little to get back to you. No one at our small company is able to really just do "one job." Everyone wears multiple hats with a small company like ours, and so I think he just hasn't had a chance yet. But do not fear! You'll get a response.

I haven't received a response for this either. I did get response from the Shaggai map playtest pm, though. I know PG will reach out when they are ready. I have faith in the madness.

The guy doing it is a joke.

Also I'm trying to set up a discord channel so that people can discuss playtesting of new stuff there and also have a link to the downloads. It's a huge pain to email more than 25MB of attachments whenever anyone emails me about Shaggai.
