The author Orrin Grey is Kickstarting a hardcover edition of his first short story collection, Never Bet the Devil & Other Warnings. The stories have a heavy Lovecraftian feel. One of the stories is available for free on the Kickstarter, Black Hill. The stories are really, really good, and Black Hill alone has some gamable elements. We interviewed him on Technical Difficulties if you also want to hear his pitch.

The nightmarish Colton's was A Very Through Murder part 1. Don't remember where Fun Factory first came from.

Another highlight is the mixed media in-scenario / out of character discussion of the Gun Show in Episode 1 of God's Teeth.

*Shrugs* I dunno, Han's ending was really satisfying and heartwarming. As was Refurb's.

McReedy & Half though... goddamn Half's ending...

Been playing 20XX, a rougelike Mega Man game currently in Early Access. If you've been burned by Mighty No. 9, this might be able to heal your wounds. Well, that and just replaying old Mega Man games.


No worries! For the Abberents and Cults I had to fill in a lot of gaps for what's been written thus far, and I know I took a leap of logic or two. i envisioned that some of the old Candymen were victims of Patient Zero prior to the Archivists, with half or less being Arvhivists. The insane Archvists worship the Candyman and seek to become it when close to death, and the same ones keep the insane ones complacent and not 'let's go spread His will! And by will I mean molten caramel!'

I'll fully admit that I'm still working out the bugs in my GM style. I'm still pleased with how the cult and Abberent turned out, and hopefully will do better in the future.

While I was on vacation I started replaying Super Metroid on my New 3DS. It's probably my #1 or #2 favorite game of all time. It's a game that has a special place in my heart and I always go back to it after a while. It seems so odd to see an SNES game on a portable after growing up with the SNES, but it's so awesome. Latest run through was 5:47 with 93% of items (only missed 6 missiles and a super missile).


The USB drive held the CCTV footage of the Tasty Treet Candy Company during the crash, which included the death of the 'Patient Zero' Candyman.

The cultists were originally Archivists, and the sane ones still are. They went to the factory to obtain documents and recipes from the factory. As Archivists the cult were already on the edge when they encountered the Aberrant. Millie and the sane ones were stayed to protect their remaining friends and study both the Candyman and the transformation process as valuable Intel to give to the Archivists. They don't have much information as the crazy cultists won't let them dissect the dead Candymen, but the CCTV footage and what study they could make were in the USB drive.

While I'm on vacation, I've been reading Road Trip, by Ross Payton.

For reasons.

RPGs / Re: Where to find building blueprints for games.

Yeah, it's hard to find floor plans. Wish I had thought of trying to search in foreign methods.

My method is just to Google "type of building" map of floor plan. I'll make sure to use this method for future campaigns.

From what I gathered there is a frightening amount of sentience in Vectors, but it also depends on how they go Vector. Regardless, IMHO they're going through such agony as their body is taken over that fine motor skills are destroyed. Opening a door? No. Breaking through it? Yes.

Paging Dan; and anyone else interested in Anima: (From the DTRPG newsletter:)

In particular, look for the current 30% off sale from Fantasy Flight Games on their Anima: Beyond Fantasy RPG game line because once the sale is over, on May 16, the Anima RPG will be shut down and discontinued. Sadly, it will no longer be available at all, anywhere. This is, literally, your last chance.

Sounds good. I'll add that to my spreadsheet.


I'd be interested. As a football nerd as well as a gaming nerd LARPing in Lucas Oil Stadium is too good to pass up. Do you have to cosplay, though? Not sure if I'm bringing a costume to GenCon.

Another general quedtion; just took a look at the event list and it's... Intimidatingly long. So much stuff to do! What are some good means of blocking time? Do you plan for events and try to commit to as much as you can? Leave a lot of free time available? I want to plan wisely, but it seems absurdly easy to over commit. I'm already starting to formulate an itinerary in Excel...

I have to say, the Mega Playground was the sort of twisted genius I wish I could pull off when I write stuff.

twisted genius

Is... is this what Caleb feels like when people complement him on the viciousness and moral choices of God's Teeth or A Very Through Murder?

Sweet, thanks!

We've reuploaded the audio. Seems like there was some form of a hiccup, whether through Hangouts or Youtube. We lost about 15 minutes of recording, but it's flavor text as they entered the Mega Playground (C), nothing plot vital was lost.

Huge thanks to Gorkamorka for letting us know. Thanks all for your patience!
