Baker Street RPG

Baker Street is a role playing game developed by Bryce Whitacre and will be published by Fearlight Games.

In Baker Street the players are investigators helping Dr. Watson solve cases as Sherlock Holmes is presumed dead after an encounter with his nemesis James Moriarty.

What makes Baker Street unique is the Sherlock Die, a special die that is rolled with every roll in the game. The Sherlock Die features the numbers 1, 2, 3, a Watson icon, a Moriarty icon, and a Sherlock icon. The numerical values represent the number of successes, the Watson icon represents an extra success, Sherlock’s icon gives the player the option to choose a 1, 2, or 3, while Moriarty’s icon is a bad result.

Investigating a scene is the driving engine of this game and players are making Observation, Deduction, and Reason Skill Rolls in order to uncover clues and leads for their investigation.

The game also has a status statistic that is used in social interactions. Opposed Status Rolls are made when the investigators try to convince someone, or charm their way out of a difficult situation.

The Baker Street RPG Kickstarter has already received 4 times more funding than initially needed. The next stretch goal that will be reached will unlock the Mastermind Screen which will be added to all backers who receive the physical book.

  1. Thank you everyone! We’re completely amazed at the support that has shown for the Baker Street RPG!

    With our $20,000 goal broken, we decided that it was time to start talking about what is next for Baker Street and incorporate some of the material into our Stretch Goals. So, here is the opportunity to get several new campaign guides and casebooks unlocked and into your hands far earlier than expected.

    We’re really excited about this new opportunity and can’t wait to see what you think too!

    $30,000 – Sherlock by Gaslight (Campaign Guide) (Add-On)
    This campaign guide will feature a London sourcebook, a poster map of London, and include cases dealing with Jack the Ripper, Dr. Jeckyll, and other horror stories of the time. Jack might even make an appearance on the Sherlock die for the campaign.

    $40,000 – Strange Cases in Distant Places (Casebook) (FREE)
    Murder on a continental train? Crimes of passion aboard a yacht? Jewel thefts in the Far East? This book is a casebook filled with crimes in exotic locales.

    $50,000 – In Her Majesty’s Secret Service (Campaign Guide) (Add-On)
    A campaign guide and cases for working in government service under Mycroft Holmes. Political schemes, spies, world traveling, and adventure await! We’ve been led to believe that Mycroft will be making an appearance on the Sherlock die for the campaign.

    $60,000 – Studies in Scarlet (Casebook) (FREE)
    A book filled with adaptations of classic Sherlock cases straight from the stories of Arthur Conan Doyle. Some of the best Sherlock cases brought to life as adventures for your investigators.

    $75,000 – Sherlock Holmes: Dark-Watch (Campaign Guide) (Add-On)
    This is a stand-alone campaign guide that takes a look at an alternate Steampunk Victorian world for Sherlock. Science has progressed in leaps and bounds with fantastical steam powered machines. Professor Moriarty has released a biological agent on the countrysides of England causing the dead to return to life. Dr. Watson is an alchemist, Sherlock a steampunk scientist, and Mycroft is a magic practitioner protecting Britain from a myriad of supernatural threats.
