Well, I have just launched the Patreon for Uncanny Echo, I'll put up the first Issue later today when I'm back home, along with the first episode of the actual play of Issue 0: The Heist. Look forward to that later today, woohoo!

Each month, through the Patreon's RSS feed, I'm releasing the playtests of the Issues done over at The Gauntlet.

Uncanny Echo contains small, episodic stories rooted in mysterious or eerie events that unravel with each Issue. Something somewhat normal becomes something else: surreal, unearthly... uncanny.

Each Issue is a pick-up-and-play one shot, intended to form an ongoing serialized narrative that has a meta-narrative external from any given session. Within these modular experiences, each game will differ greatly with player input. Each uncanny story is of your own making, and unfolds in an emergent manner. You to play to find out what happens with as little cognitive load as possible.

Thanks +Johnstone Metzger for letting me post this one-page compilation of his rules. I've been wanting to generate a few nightmare incursions and use this premise for a loose campaign of short arcs and one-shots. I made this tool to help me remember what was involved with generating an incursion, and I am sharing it with Johnstone's permission. Hopefully, I will share some nightmare incursion adventures as one-pagers during following weeks.

Last episode of this particular series; there’s a lot of Monsterhearts in the PSP feed!
The final episode of Monsterhearts: Return to Mercy Falls is here!

This series was a real pleasure to play, and I love that we have the Pocket-Sized Play platform available to share it with you. There will be more of the Mercy Falls saga coming to the feed soon, including Mercy Falls '83 and Memories of Mercy Falls (it's practically a VC Andrews series at this point).

Thanks to +Fraser Simons for putting this series together, as well to the excellent players: +Yoshi Creelman Kevin Lovecraft +Phillip Wessels and +Lowell Francis

Enjoy!

My BreakoutCon schedule. Come say hi, I'd love to meet as many folks as I can while I am out there!

I'm waitlisted for +Hamish Cameron's The Sprawl, but am solidly in The Gore Filled Sea! Finally get to try out the The Watch, and with +Andrew Medeiros no less! Super excited to play Ross Rifles with +Daniel Kwan, too. Gonna be amazing!

I've also yet to play 2e Apocalypse World, a travesty that will be rectified!
