Reign of the Accursed Sneak Peak

Lately there have been a lot of shame and woe in the way of vampires and vampire related books, movies, or games. I constantly find myself hearing the word “vampire” and wincing painfully. However, that is not the case when I watched the cinematic video for Reign of the Accursed. Reign of the Accursed is a horror tabletop… Read More »

Vampire the Redemption: Into the Void

A new Vampire the Redemption release is now available. If a city’s Prince is killed, the city sinks into chaos. He, who was responsible for the order, and the “peace”, can’t stop the ravaging hungry vampires anymore. What if the players’s own characters were his killers? This is, what Into the Void is about. A Storytelling Adventure System… Read More »

40+ old style photos for use in your noir, horror or d20 modern campaigns

Early this morning I downloaded the Retro Camera app for my android phone, on a whim.  I started taking a few pictures of my commute with it, and I realized that some of the industrial settings I was commuting through would make cool photos for use in some sort of noir RPG campaign.  It also occurred to me that I work in…

Failed fantasy and horror novel titles and the blurbs that love them

I spend a decent amount of my time reading fantasy and horror novels.  I’ve often toyed with writing something a bit longer than a blog post, but I have a hard time pinning down enough time to do so.  I do occasionally get flashes of brilliance where ideas and titles are concerned. These six titles, they are not my flashes …

The Future Will Not Save Us – Book Review of Maschine Zeit

There comes a time in every review’s life when they look out over the landscape of the products they review and they ask themselves: “What need is there for another product in genre X?” In RPGs, there are obviously the heavy-hitters in every genre and there are groups of indie darlings that have bright flashes that may or may not last.

Review – Dread

Not for the faint of heart! Dread is an innovative horror RPG with (perhaps) the most unusual resolution mechanic out there: a Jenga tower. Although not for everybody, this excellent storytelling game is a tour de force of a rules-light system perfectly matched to its genre – with an exemplary presentation as well. The system is light and elegant…

Monster Week: Vashta Nerada [Monsters]

Here’s my 11th hour submission to Nuketown’s Monster Week 2010 .  While not strictly a creature feature, I thought that Doctor Who Series 4 Episodes 8 and 9 (“Silence in the Library” and “Forest of the Dead”) would make an excellent topic for the heading.  WARNING: Spoilers ahead. While exploring the largest library in the universe, the Doctor and Donna Noble encountered the Vashta…
