That's impressive considering I've never heard of that book until just now.

WHAT!?

The only way Ross is related to Time Lords is that he's an even bigger monster on the inside.

Oh, also:

-Roadside Picnic
-And, uh... a bunch of others. But that one's in my sight line, because I brought it with me to China.

Really?  I though you guys talked about it.  Oh and I bought the Jim Morey album because you played his song "Anything for Adventure" in one of the episodes.

There's an entire series of "Shadows over..." books so you may have heard of us talk about one and then pick up another.

Oh, let's see, just a few:
-Book of Unremitting Horror (I do like me some monster manuals, doesn't matter the game. I have to say this has some of the best, and disturbing, creatures ever. A little modification, and it can really be adaptable to a number of settings. Jeez, there is some fucked up stuff in that book.)
-Horror Recognition Guide (More inspiration, and a great read. This has me wanting to play Hunter: The Vigil pretty badly.)
-Eclipse Phase(I really was going to get it anyway, but after hearing the actual plays on RPPR, I now have to own every Eclipse Phase book that will ever come out, like ever.)
-Night's Black Agents(I actually haven't got it yet, but I most definitely will.)
-Come to think of it, I'll probably pick up Shadows of Esteren at some point.
-The Laundry, both the RPG, and also The Atrocity Archives.
-Zombies of the World, Kindle edition.

I have bought and played Call of Cthulhu pretty much entirely because of RPPR.  The Actual Plays changed my impression of it from "Paranoia with evil monsters" to something interesting and compelling.

Great Scott!

RPPR is what turned me onto Roleplaying and Lovecraft actually, so my list is all of my role-playing items and Lovecraft literature.

1. COC
2. Delta Green (Signed by Adam Scott Glancy)
3. Delta Green Eyes Only
4. A Dirty World
5. Mask of Nyarlathotep
6. Strange Eons (A book of scenarios for COC)
7. Caleb's No Security
8. All Flesh Must Be Eaten
9. One of the Living
10. All of Ross' books, except Curriculum of Conspiracy and Road Trip
11. Eclipse Phase
12. The Laundry Files
13. Mount and Blade (All three)
14. 4 or 5 Books of Lovecraft
15. Tickets to the Lovecraft Film Festival last May where I met Mr. Glancy! (I told him that RPPR turned me onto Pagan Publishing         and he said he was gonna send you guys a fruit basket or something)

RPPR single handedly is responsible for me being a table-top role-player.
I can't think of anything worth putting here, so I decided not to have anything of consequence.

Given most of what I see on these lists Chaosium should be begging you to play their stuff on the air.

Lets see...

1. Call of Cthulhu

2. Wild Talents Essential Edition

3.  RPPR (and friends of RPPR) Kickstarters

4. Pantheon and Other Role Playing Games

5. This one may be a stretch, but the Twokinds Kickstarters they've had because if it wasn't for hearing it mentioned on RPPR I wouldn't have got into the webcomic.

when did we mention two kinds? I don't remember ever seeing that web comic. Did Tom recommend it?

It's a furry comic and Tom Church is one of us so yes, he's probably the one who mentioned it.

I remember it was Tom who recommend it, don't remember which episode, but remember that much.

Just saw where I went wrong, was a webcomic, but different one. Skin Deep My mistake.
