Glorious! Anyone know the latest Lulu code?
I didn't make White Box: Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game to make money. I recently broke even and then made a tiny sum of money over the last month to pay myself for the time it took to put it all together. So now I'm takin...

BOARD GAMERS! I need a six-player co-op board game. I'm a big fan of Legendary, but there's a good bit of downtime/waiting with that many players. Looking for an alternative. Suggestions? (Not interested in partial co-op games, such as Last Night On Earth -- strictly "everyone on same team," please.)

Also I found Sanrio played out, San-X was my new Cute Mascot masters.

But man, Sanrio threw a Scorpion-hookshot into my heart with Aggretsuko. I'm all in.

EVERYTHING MUST GO
All my PDF gaming stuff is now free or pay-what-you-want. All my print gaming stuff is now sold at cost (no profits to me). Why? Because I pretty much broke even, and had a bit left over to commission some artwork for that heavy metal OSR sourcebook I'm working on. Time to cut prices to the bone! If you like cannibalism, tentacles, and scaphism, check out my stuff in the links below (also, new Lulu code: RESOLUTE15 saves you 15% -- Christ, talk about burying the lede, Chandler).

Lovely bestiary! Bizzarie di Varie Figure, written by Giovanni Battista Bracelli, published in 1624. "The book (of which only two complete copies are known), comprises forty-seven engravings, most of which depict a pair of stylised figures, formed variously of boxes, chains, rags, pots, pans, twigs, drums, bells, etc., etc."
Bracelli. I've mentioned Giovanni Battista Bracelli's book Bizzarie di Varie Figure before. It was originally published in Livorno, in 1624. One would assume the book was not a success, as it exerted no influence, and attracted very little notice until its rediscovery in Paris ca. 1950.

Body armor from 100 years ago. Good stuff.
War creates a need for innovation. In 1914, high technology for men in battle constituted of khaki clothing...

Saw some of those at the Imperial War Museum last month. Some of that German armor looked like they'd tried to turn a tank into an item of clothing. then of course, at the start of the war there was cavalry wearing breastplates!

One thing that stands out in my mind was an entire wall full of unsanctioned makeshift hand  weapons. shivs, saps, spiked clubs, shrapnel hatchets, and chains. Some grim stuff!

Looking for a good horror movie to enjoy on Friday the 13th? My top recommendations:

REC: Found-footage zombie movie from Spain. Bloodbath. Ferocious.

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon: Mockumentary about a slasher who wants to emulate his heroes (Krueger, Voorhees).

Inside: On Christmas Eve, a pregnant woman is stalked by a psycho. So much fun!

Martyrs is just a nightmare. Took my breath away. DON'T watch the American remake (which, really, is good advice for any movie).

The following movies are all on Netflix:

The Horde: French zombie flick about cops and criminals; they're busy trying to kill each other when the zombie outbreak happens, and now they have to work together to survive.

Dead Set: Miniseries about a zombie outbreak that takes place during the filming of Big Brother (the reality show). Sharp satire, gore all over the place.

It Follows: A group of teens are stalked by a relentless killer that can't be seen. Top-notch tension and dread.

Creep: Funny and unnerving found-footage movie about a man hired to record a message for the family of a guy who's dying from a brain tumor. Things get weird, and then they get scary.

The Host: Monster movie from South Korea. Giant frog monster eats people. Family bands together to save their youngest. Action and drama. Awesome.

Late Phases: Tough little movie about an old soldier hunting a supernatural killer.

Deathgasm: Hilarious horror-comedy about a metal band that summons a demon by accident. NATAS LIAH \m/

I keep meaning to watch REC! I really wish it was on Netflix! I've been watching a bunch of great Spanish language horror lately, one of my favorites being El Orfanato, which is just a beautiful, suspenseful, heartbreaking film that manages to produce some elegantly terrifying moments!

I Am Not A Serial Killer is an oddly uplifting and poignant horror movie about a series of gruesome murders in a small town. The less you know about the plot, the better. The pace is slow, but peppered with offbeat humor and delicious gore. Really loved this one for its many surprises and its thoughtful approach to sociopathy. On Netflix now.

We watched it tonight and liked it. Interesting and offbeat. I could see where the book would fill some of those gaps and let you inside John's head.

August 1845: HMS Terror (a bomb vessel converted into a polar exploration ship) enters Baffin Bay. It is lost, and all souls aboard are declared dead.

September 2016: Terror is found in Nunavut, at the bottom of Terror Bay.

October 2016: The people of Nunavut report "a strange noise that seems to be coming from the sea floor." Authorities can find no explanation.

If Train to Busan is playing in your town, GO SEE IT. Mandatory zombie movie. One of the best I've ever seen. Top-notch Halloween fare, if you ask me.

Fantastic film saw it recently & it had some excellent ideas.
Some of the scenes are so poignant
& quite sensitively executed.
I found the experience rather moving.
It deserves high praise.

Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu! My Hunter went insane, but managed to take out a couple of Shoggoths. My wife, playing as the Doctor, smashed up a bunch of cults, then sealed the final Gate, banishing the Elder Gods to the starless voids that spawned them. Iä! Iä!

Both available at Amazon.
