BTW, I read The Night Land, Retold instead of the standard text: http://www.amazon.com/The-Night-Land-Story-Retold-ebook/dp/B004GKNM3W

Basically it updates the prose of the story so that it doesn't suck and adds dialogue between the man and woman, while still leaving in all the weirdness of the Night Land.

Yeah, I remember! I actually looked it up and did think it flowed a lot better, but it takes a lot of caring to get me to read something with my eyes. I might have to check it out, though. After I slog through my backlog of EP stuff I never bothered to reeead.

Ah. Fair enough!

BTW I am currently burning through the Rhesus Chart right now - very good stuff.

Agreed. Charles Stross' Laundry Files series is quite good.

In the realm of non-fiction I've been on a WWI kick lately; I liked Lawrence in Arabia, by Scott Anderson.

I'm one of the three-star reviews of The Rhesus Chart on Amazon. I still feel bad, but I didn't really like it. =< With the death of Iain Banks and the living death of Pratchett, Stross has basically ascended to my favorite living author, so it makes me sad when he doesn't wow or at least baffle (Neptune's Brood) me. Case Nightmare Green has been stalled for too long! I want more metaplot!

Edit: Oooh, I actually read a DIFFERENT rewriting of The Night Lands. A free one on somebody's website. I wonder if this one's related.

Monsters and Other Childish Things
Eclipse Phase

How can you NOT want to play those after listening to Ross talk about them?!

I also now own every supplement available for Monsters.

Yay monsters!

BTW I finished the Rhesus Chart - I quite liked it. The focus on bureaucracy was pretty interesting and the take on vampires was pretty neat. The only 2 things that annoyed me were the overuse of callbacks to previous novels (which is inevitable I suppose, but you don't have to point out the eater of souls bit every time) and Spooky's bits were over cute.

BTW there's a good read for spoilers here: http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2014/07/spoiler-thread.html

Dear RPPR crew.  The Teeth of God have made me spend far to much money on the Delta Green Kickstarter. 

Dam you. 

I hope you are getting something back for your PR work.

I to spent more money than I should have on the DG kickstarter, but it goes to something I love, continuation of the mythos, and hopefully I can find people around me that will play it as well.
I also bought the whole eclipse phase pdf set because of Know Evil.

Because of the podcast, I've bought pretty much all of Eclipse Phase, including The Devotees. All of the books are in hardback with some pdf back-up. (My wallet cries.) I've also bought Ashen Stars, Night's Black Agents, and A Dirty World.

I've bought two Eclipse Phase books (the core book and Transhuman) and I've just bought into Delta Green for the complete run. Also Trail of Cthulhu, which I probably never would have given a chance otherwise. One of these days I'll probably pick up Night's Black Agents and maybe The Dracula Dossier (or at least Dracula Unredacted -- man, what a cool idea that is!).

And I've also bought Ross and Caleb's books. Somehow I ended up with two copies of No Security. ;D

The EP main book and the Bundle of Holding EP pack (which included the Devotees!)
MAOCT (and also may have influenced my choice of prize for winning the fan contest)
COC
Little Fears
Slasher Flick
The Laundry Bundle of Holding (mostly because of their discussion of how much they like the novels. Maybe some day we'll see the game.)
No Security and gameless Lover in the Ice

and now, with an Old Guard pledge, all Delta Green everything, both old and new.

If it wasn't for my friend introducing me to AD&D, I won't be into RPGs, and if it wasn't for RPPR, I wouldn't be playing all this stuff. I've read through MAOCT, Little Fears, Slasher Flick, and No Security / Lover, got most of the way through EP, and part of the way through COC.

Non RPGS:

Horrorstor (Lovely concept and execution, plus Cleveland represent! In violent horror!)
Fordlandia
Tinseltown
Payday 2
This Book is Full of Spiders
The RPPR Patreon
The Drunk and the Ugly Patreon

Bought EP Firewall and Base Raiders when i was in London prior to going to Night Vale Live. Wanted to tweet at Ross about it but i dropped my phone so no pic.

i dropped money on the basic delta green because i dropped too much on kickstarter this month. Will go well with the DG bundle from B of H.

I bought Night's Black Agents, 3 Eclipse Phase books, Base Raiders, and Lovers in the Ice [over the course of a year of college]
Aaaaand this was all around the time I stopped having a group to play with--But I have a Night's Black Agents game now, which is wonderful!
