Part of a series about the people who bring us Atlantis, starting in the present and travelling backwards in time.
Amatue. So I was in this Christian Union meeting in university about twenty years ago now, and a girl (I think her name was Abi, but I'm not 100% sure) reported on a short-term missionary expedition to Uganda. She told a sto...

Woohoo, more new Entries to the

+Grant Howitt 's Force-Blade Punk, a neat game of balancing your health, getting what you want, and protecting your pride. Neat stuff!

+Kyrinn S. Eis  finished her Trilogy of micro-games. Although each one stands on it's own, it's cool to see all 3 up there. Connecting them together is a neat concept, and I am curious as to which of the 3 people will prefer more.

Chopping Block by +Catreece MacLeod  forces players to rely on each other and use their unique skills to break out of a haunted house.

Amateurs at Word by Øivind Stengrundet is a heist game! I was so glad to see a good heist rpg show up here. It looks like a blast to play!

Walk the Fire Road by Charon MacDonald is a setting supplement, rather than a game of it's own. I like the world portrayed, and the string of simple sentences creates a vivid and interesting landscape.

+J. Walton's Do Over is (by my wife's words): wait...isn't this role-playing therapy? We studied this in school! (she's a therpaist for children). So good work J. (although I still don't know what the J stands for....everywhere you're just referred to as J.)

+Stew Wilson's Unfinished seems like a great way to prep for a game of spirits and regrets. (I'd use it for my Monster of the Week game in a split second!)

+Tara Zuber made a game called Powers and Reasons where you are a group of superheroes don't matter as much as the reasons why you use them. I like that a lot.

And I'll finish with a game meant to be played through a small notebook: +Abram Bussiere's Tiny Grimoires. I love the idea of having a small book of puzzles and treasure that grows with each player. Very out of the box thinking.

So the SA paywall is down for the Badass Panels thread.

+Angus Macintyre this is why I say Hickman gets Thor (from Infinity, but read all his Avengers/New Avengers for ultimate context — it'll be worth it like Secret Warriors was)

For a period when I got home from the pub, this was DriveThruRPG's hottest titles. Not hottest small press, hottest titles.

Sadly, I'm now at number two. Oh well, I'm sure I'll manage somehow.

The food took over two and a half hours to arrive, and was stone cold when we finally got it. We phoned repeatedly to find out what was going on and was just told "it'll be right with you" for an hour and a half. The guy on the phone was actively evasive when pressed for any idea of an actual time. Ordered banana bread, but it wasn't in the delivery, no apology or explanation given. Meat in the doro wat was mostly inedible gristle. The sauce was supposed to be spicy but had almost no flavour at all.
