I did just buy Fear Itself. I have been looking for an engine to power strange one shot horror games and after hearing Journey to the City (not quite done yet) I bit. In the pass I had used COC but want to now give this gumshoe variant a go.

Before bathing my ears in the balmy waters of Ross' sultry tones, I'd never even heard of Fear Itself.

My current PDF (hardbacks are expensive, yo) collection that I accmiulated as a direct result of RPPR stands at:
- Fear Itself
- Call of Cthulhu
- Monsters and other Childish Things

I'm going to see about grabbing Zombies and Eclipse Phase when I am less poor and peasant-y, though that might be after I graduate and find myself without any friends a gaming group...

I recommend getting Zombies of the World first. It's cheaper and therefore better! Also, pic unrelated (or is it????)

I was about to go to bed, too... :c

Another recent purchase that wasn't directly because of the podcast was the "Mysterious Places" supplement for the World of Darkness (though it's usable in just about any horror-themed system). Some pretty cool ideas for settings in there. However, I bought it because your Arcadia Signal episode got me itching to try to run another horror game with my flatmates, so it still totally counts. I have, in no way, derailed this thread.

I got Monster and Other Childish Things and Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor because of the podcast, as well as A Dirty World. So lots of One Roll Engine. The podcast might have been part of my decision to actually get Gumshoe stuff too.

I just bought Fear Itself(and started buying WWI/II historical books, because of the ASG games), a game I'd not even considered until hearing actual play featuring the system.

While I haven't bought anything yet, I want to get some of the FATE and GUMSHOE system games: Spirit of the Century, Trail of Cthulhu, and, of course, Night's Black Agents. Also, I plan on grabbing Base Raiders and the POD version of No Security once that's available and I have the cash for it all! Damn you bills, sapping all my RPG money.

Picked up Fiasco after listening to the glorious tale of Randell Turducken and Channel Six News.

Monsters and Other Childish Things and Road Trip.

Was planning on demo-ing the game TODAY at three... and then our car broke down... :P God hates me.

Currently backing the GUMSHOE-based Kickstarter for Timewatch, and recently ordered -and received- Caleb's No Security book. Looks awesome.
