For what it's worth, my brother did a interview with Caleb recently and just thought I'd put up a link to it here. Have yet to listen to it myself as of yet, but hope to soon.

This is cool! I grin and shake my head every time Caleb describes our funding as generosity. This ain't generosity! It's half glowing gratitude for the countless hours of awesome we've already been fed for free gratis nothing and half raw hunger to see this kind of stuff see the light of day and our sticky hands.

Caleb, do you realize that when you get around to publishing Know Evil in whatever form it eventually takes you're going to essentially coil the entire Eclipse Phase universe around your vision of it? You must've done more thinking and writing about the setting than anyone outside of Posthuman. It'll be a thing of beauty.
Agreed!
I mean for me Candle Cove got me into the AP's, and Caleb's games (including the dirty worlds games, which surprised me as I don't usually like "non fantastical" scenarios) kept me coming back. I love all the other games too, but Caleb's games definitively get my attention above the rest. They're like the specials in your favorite TV... er... radio show.

So how much is the stretch reward for seeing a one-shot of Augustine & the Fire Wall crew meeting the Doctor?

That probably wouldn't end well for them, given Caleb's dim views about Doctor Who. He did compare the Doctor to the Great Old Ones in Episode 73, after all.

Is it me or did that Dissolution [Funny Story] thread read like someone who's been psycosurgeried by Bartlebee and left in simalspace for too long?

My favorite spam message on my blog was this one:

Unquestionably imagine that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to take into account of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while other folks consider concerns that they plainly do not understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

That might be the best spam ever. It's like... poetry. I'm making part of that my signature on the Eclipse Phase forums.

Not gonna lie, when I saw the the monster designs on Kickstarter for the Chicago scenario, I didn't think it was  a [spoiler]Ghoul[/spoiler], until I saw the name of it. After I wondered how I hadn't seen it before, It's a really cool design for them.

The first of No Security scenarios, Bryson Springs, is done and available for download. Check it out at hebanongames.com . Thanks for all the love RPPR; this wouldn't be possible without you guys.

Good read. One typo I did notice: when you write about the Kelly family, you use the plural with an apostrophe (eg, the Kelly's). There is no need for any punctuation there, as far as I can see.

I might try to run Bryson Springs for my group sometime in the next week or two. If I can swing the game, I'll probably record it and put it on the AP feed on my site, though I can't promise any of my friends will top Aaron accidentally setting fire to the orange grove. Maybe I'll see if I can stat it out for nWoD, just to change things up.

Dragged through The Hedge by a marionette? I think yes...
