Totally perfect.  Requirement to activate portal involve sitting on the "bridge" and saying "Make it so."   I would totally have the internal main meeting room done up like the Bridge.   And the server room like Engineering.   Would be SO awesome!

How to use map of vintage photos keyed to NYC street locations in Trail of Cthulhu:  http://bit.ly/1AtICJl
A while back we had a creepy rhapsody over archived crime scene photos from the NYPD, as useful handouts in Trail of Cthulhu games. On a like note, let’s applaud the team who took historical photos...

Three individuals started ancestral lines from which two thirds of modern European males descend: 
For such a large and culturally diverse place, Europe has surprisingly little genetic variety. Learning how and when the modern gene-pool came together has been a long journey. But thanks to new technological advances a picture is slowly coming together of repeated colonisation by peoples from the east ...

Look what just arrived in the +Atlas Games feng shui site.
 
Dice Porn: Feng Shui 2 Edition

Boxes and boxes of dice arrived in the +Atlas Games offices today! These six-siders have "exploding" sixes and are rolled in pairs: one red (positive die), one white (negative die).

Kickstarter backers who backed the game at a certain level get 3 pairs of these dice as a set. Very schmancy. Thanks Q-Workshop!

A bizarre new craze is sweeping the internet - but what is this Ouija-board inspired game about?

Or read this fast & misread it to get the Charlie Chan Challenge to get fun new mysteries. Interesting article with a lot of a ton of fun for modern horror.

First thing that pops to mind would be finding these sheets somewhere & questions/4 responses go from really innocent & general to really specific as well as some responses pointing closer to the player characters.

Also amusing how on the article it's first mentioned as a spirit then a demon so leads to who might be on the other end.
