I have heard much talk of Scrivenrer, but I am still not entirely sure what it does, or what the advantages of it are.

It's like microsoft Word except you can have several different folders within the same file. Really useful when you have a project that has separate sections like chapters or having notes for later or what have you.

Very cool.

Oh man, all Delta Green fans out there have to jump on Dennis Detwiller's patreon for the RPPR crew's trek through the Impossible Landscapes adventure.   

Episode 5 is fantastic and well worth the wait.  I need to hear the conclusion and read the adventure now.  Man it's so good.

The Black Monday Murders



All Hail God Mammon



Anyone interested in an occult take on international Finance mixed with plentiful and necessary ritual murder needs to check this out.

Similar to how From Hell weaved a supernatural mythology around the Ripper killings, The Black Monday Murders (all hail God Mammon) builds a daemonical backstory around the tragedies in the esoteric world of the Rothschilds, money and the Stock Market.

And it's host to a straight occult detective story to boot!



Have some quotes:

Grigoria Rothschild "... So... I understand you've become a teacher. I have to say I was suprised when I heard, but it seems to suit you. You look well."

Alexi "I admit. I like it more than I though I would."

GR "And how does this year's crop of future financial titans look?"

Alexi "Oh. Smart. They are smarter every year, it seems.  But they are, unfortunately, a flawed generation. Children of the summer, you seen.  They all believe money falls from the sky.  Not that it is pulled from the Earth.

But they will learn. They always do."

---

Viktor (to classroom of new financiers) "So. You want real advice?  Here it is.  The first million dollars you make is self-financed.  You earn it with your own blood.  The cost is your own health, your family, your friends. 

You pay, understand?

The most common mistake is believing that you can accrue even more by continuing this behavior.  You cannot.  If you're going to earn more...if you are going to earn real money-- accumulate real power-- then that is done on the backs of others. 

Call them workers, call them proles, even call them slaves.  I do not care. Just know, it is they who you will sacrifice for gain.

This sounds callous, I know. But you're going to learn very quickly how insignificant the rules you have lived by truly are.  What we do falls outside all societal norms... This is the older pact. Man's very first trade."

All Hail God Mammon

Since Ross has interests in the Inca and Aztecs, here's a story.

In 1519, Cortes came to Mexico.  It was estimated the native population was 25 million.  One hundred years later, only 1 million native peoples remained.  What follows next is CSI on a historical scale to answer the question, what pathogens caused the plagues in 1545 and 1576 that contributed to the Aztecs' decline?

Could it be an ancient form of Salmonella, brought from Europe to Mexico?

@Twisting H: Hickman makes me glad I run a comic shop. I really need to read more of his backlog.

Is that comic going to be an ongoing or does it have a set number of issues?

The stellar art of the demonic language/code drew me to the comic, but Hickman's excellent writing really sold the characters and the book.

I felt this would be a must read for any fans of Red Markets or occult detective tales.

Let us know how Frontier is.

That's the only Unknown Armies podcast I am aware of.

If you find any more, please post them!

I know right? Hopefully we'll get some more after 3e comes out in print.

We got a copy of Black Monday Murders today. Looking forward to reading that.
