I think the process is a bit backward here.  Why decide on a system before deciding on the type of game the group wants to play?

I'd really want to see Caleb running a medieval low-fantasy horror campaign in the Shadows of Esteren setting.

The author has posted before in these forums about the product and RPPR played a game run in Gencon by one of the translators (even if the actual recording was very hard to listen to because of the background music).

The setting itself looks fascinating as well, and every review I've read praises it immensely. It's definitely on my wishlist for future books to pick up.

Every time I read that 'Shadows of Esteren' my Tourette's sight reads it as 'Shadows of Estrogen'...must be a new game by Ray Winninger...

After listening to Aarons last Monsters game (Junkyard on the Edge of Forever), I am now curious more than ever as to Calebs take on Monsters. My guess, it would involve Noir.

If we're going Grimdark with Monsters and Other Childish Things, the kids should all be angsty outcast teenagers.

That reminds me of the Monster ISS games by the Drunk and the Ugly gang. XD
(Just starting to listen to those sessions).

Nah, if they go Grimdark with Monsters and Other Childish Things, it should be a bunch of eight-year-olds in broken homes.
"Billy's never been to school because his dad forces him to watch the still during the day."
"Meryl has to fight for pillow space from the whores who've made their money for the night."
"Andrew is rich, but he's a hobo now."

Aaron would play Meryl, of course.

Based on the Cthulhu game of the Base Raiders Preview APs, I would like to see a little fears game done by Caleb. That first bit was the Creepiest and awesome part to me.

Necroing this thread to ask if Better Angels has been played yet and if so, how it went.

We're working on it. I have the book and the first pregen scenario. Iron Heroes is taking longer than expected and we have a semester game night change coming up (always a schedule nightmare), but it is next on the block after that.

I feel this picture is relevant to an upcoming game in the New Arcadia campaign that Caleb ran

Oh man, I've been waiting for this one since I'd heard about it.  Unless it's more directly related to Skyrim than I'm thinking.
