And I wasn't making an editorial comment, just editing my post after messing it up.

True Detective Season 3 will be set in the Ozarks.

http://nerdist.com/true-detective-season-3-brings-mahershala-ali-and-green-rooms-director-to-the-ozarks/

Quote
After a two-year hiatus, True Detective is officially coming back for a third season with Oscar winner Mahershala Ali returning to television for the leading role. Ali had previously committed to the show earlier this summer, but HBO’s pickup was contingent upon finding a new director for season three. As it turns out, there will be two directors this season: Green Room helmer Jeremy Saulnier and True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto, who will be making his directorial debut.

According to Deadline, the third season storyline will be set in the Ozarks, where “a macabre crime” sets in motion a mystery that will play out over several decades and in three different time periods. Ali’s character will be Wayne Hays, a state police detective in Arkansas. While Hays’ story will be the focus, the multiple time periods suggest that at least two other leading roles will be cast in the series.

Pizzolatto wrote nearly every episode of True Detective season three by himself, with the exception of the fourth episode, which he co-wrote with Deadwood creator David Milch. Deadline is reporting that the new season is still being written and the final episode count has not been locked down. However, since both previous seasons were eight episodes each, it seems likely that the third season will have at least as many episodes as its predecessors.

The first season of True Detective was a smash hit that won critical acclaim and Emmy nominations for  Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, while elevating the career of director Cary Joji Fukunaga. The second season, which starred Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn, never quite managed to recapture the alchemy of the previous season. But with an exciting star in place with Ali and the inventive eye of Saulnier, we’re excited to see if the series can once again live up to its stellar first season.

What do you want to see from True Detective season three? Share your thoughts in the comment section below before the Yellow King arrives!

So over on youtube there's a channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZFipeZtQM5CKUjx6grh54g Science and Futurism with Issac Arthur. It's really god, talks about a lot of things that relate to Eclipse Phase and just cool futurism ideas. He also does a podcast version.

Cthulhu City is out!



http://site.pelgranepress.com/index.php/cthulhu-city/

Quote
Enter a place born from all of Lovecraft’s creations, and governed by servitors of the Old Ones.­­
 
Great Arkham – the Cthulhu City.
There is – by certain unreliable and maddening accounts, and now by your own dreadful experience – a city on the eastern seaboard of the United States, in northern Massachusetts. You do not recall seeing it on maps when you were growing up, and no-one of your acquaintance ever admitted coming from that place until you found yourself living within its eerie confines. It is a city of windowless cyclopean skyscrapers, of crumbling baroque buildings and ruins that must, impossibly, predate human habitation in this part of the world. At times, you can see remnants of familiar small towns which have grown together into this monstrous conurbation – Dunwich in the west, beyond Sentinel Hill; quaint Kingsport, by the sea; industrial Innsmouth, the engine of trade and commerce; and the city’s heart, Old Arkham.
You know that this city is monstrous.
You know that the city government are in the thrall of – or in league with – alien horrors.
You know better than to go out at night, when the clouds roll in from the sea and shapes move in the sky. You know there are occasional, unpredictable streets that come and go according to some unearthly schedule, that strange black ships dock at Innsmouth to trade with the squat, ugly denizens of that neighbourhood. You know, too, that not all of your neighbours are sane – or human.
But you’re trapped. There’s no way to escape the city.
Because the city is the world.

It is $34.95

Hey Bill are you planning to run a Cthulhu City campaign for RPPR Tabletop Tales?  Please say yes.

yeah I have 2 of Osprey's other war games, the hong kong one and Dracula's America. Both look very cool. Need some time to learn the rules though.

Looking forwards to your review or campaign of Dracula's America. 

Usually I get my wargaming news/fix from Guerrilla Miniature Games

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbO4Vs1vlAA9hz7Ad7IMgug/videos

They often cover Osprey wargames like Rogue Stars, Frostgrave and other indy titles.

I've watched some of their Rogue Stars battle reports, it's on my list of Osprey games I want to try (it was also written by the author of Fistful of Kung Fu).

I get a lot of my wargaming news from Tabletop Gaming News, they cover wargames, board games & card games, basically everything tabletop except for rpgs (though there's the occasional bit of rpg news too).  The FLGS downtown also carries Wargames Illustrated, one of the few traditional miniatures wargaming print magazines still around.

So I was listening to an episode of WoD the Heck (guess which one) and I was reminded of another geek podcast which I have yet to mention here: Métis In Space.

This is a podcast by two geeky Métis ladies who deconstruct sci-fi/fantasy/horror movies & tv shows featuring Indigenous Peoples from a decolonial perspective.  The podcast is currently on hiatus, and I don't know when or if it will return, but there are 30 episodes to listen to.  The bulk of each episode consists of the two of them commenting on a movie or tv show which they've just watched, with a critical view to indigenous representation & issues.  Métis In Space review shows & movies that they love as well as those that they hate, so I'd recommend starting with an episode about something they're fans of, like Star Trek: Star Trek: The Original Series “The Paradise Syndrome” or Star Trek: TNG "Journey's End" before moving on to stuff they hated, like Avatar.
Hey, new season!
