I need 25 volunteers.
If you volunteer (VIA EMAIL), I will send you a randomly-generated playthrough of Vampire.
What I need is for you to read through the playthrough carefully, and annotate continuity errors.
Specifically, insert a new line into the text document, prefaced with *comment, and then explain what the continuity error is.
This is an example of that process that was just sent in to me:
A few nights later, you arrive at the Freedman’s Bank. In the
interim, you’ve had a chance to do some rough calculations, and have
concluded that you have approximately $13 available to invest. A
young man greets you at the door, and locks it behind you. He
introduces himself as Percival Little, and leads you to his office.
He spends some time going over figures and projections with you, but
you have a hard time concentrating on his words; instead, you find
yourself fantasizing about feeding from this fellow.
When he is finished, he presents you with some investment options.
*comment - above, it says we have $13 to invest, and below the minimum
option is 100, which we successfully take
A: In truth, I’m not interested in investing much at all. I give
Little a hundred dollars or so, and ask him to tell Carothers that I
invested a small sum.
The game says that you invest $100, but the game also told you that you only have $13. The tester inserted a new line, which starts with *comment, and then told me exactly what the problem is.
Reading through a playthrough can take two to three hours. Please don’t volunteer unless you’re serious about doing this.
