Judging from Wrath of the Gods, each book leads with the same basic system, suitable for ordinary humans.  The real meat are the scenarios, each of which presents a set timeline, key events the players might get caught up in, and an ending.  While the scenarios are very well developed, I for one am not enthused about a game where the PCs have little or no influence on the unfolding catastrophe and are simply dodging the fallout.

Like Weirdo-Fantasy?
To talk about The Vorrh, a novel by B. Catling, which has been praised by the likes of Alan Moore and Tom Waits, is to talk spoilers. There's no way to summarize what happens in this novel without vomiting forth the strings of fantastic ideas contained within. No matter how cautious the summary it will not protect you from the loss of wonder you'll experience knowing anything about this novel before actually reading it. Catling's surr...

I read this not long after stalling early on the third book in the Vandermeer trilogy and loved it (with a couple of uncomfortable reservations.) I guess I should go back and finish Acceptance.

Ugh! That sounds just awful man. Sorry to hear it.

Ello is okay. There are lots of people, but it's not very noisy, which I like. It's got a great minimal blog-like layout. Supports pics, and links and animated gifs.

Message me your email and I'll send you an invite.

I watched Syfy's Z Nation and then wrote about it.
Zombie culture is a thing and it's huge. There's a tremendous market for it, and it encompasses original movies, novels, comics, and has even infected already existing properties like the Marvel Universe's Marvel Zombies and Death Troopers, a zombie novel set in the Star Wars universe.

Yes, the Tiger Lillies (and Alex Hackes) did a Lovecraft-themed performance.

This is awesome. I participated in the Marathon last year as a reader and it was amazing.
A biennial three-day marathon reading of Herman Melville's epic novel, MOBY-DICK, OR THE WHALE, in New York City.

I don't even know if motion comics are still a thing. I know lots of people were talking about them a few years ago. I know that the bigs in comics publishing have thrown money at them. I know that my buddies Kurt and Reilly are doing a digital comic called Power Play–which is a ton of fun by ...

I read Michael Cisco's The Divinity Student, and wrote a short review.

I'd be interested to hear what others have to say about it.

#reading #bookclub #MichaelCisco #weirdfiction #TheDivinityStudent  
I have a penchant for reading backwards in time. Meaning, that if I like a particular genre, author or novel I like to go back and read the sources of inspiration for those things. I've been reading a lot of New Weird authors: Livia Llewellyn, Laird Barron, and Joe Pulver–to name names, ...

Here's a magic item I made up that my players had a lot of fun with.

_Healing Runes
This is a single slip of parchment paper with angular black runes inked on it. When whoever holds the paper tears the parchment in half, they regain 1d6+1 hp. Roll against Luck, if success, each torn half contains 1d5 worth of healing. For each tearing, and each successful Luck check, each piece heals one die type lower than previous._

You can use an actual strip of paper if you want to give your players a tactile experience, just be ready to clean up strips of paper afterwards.

+Todd Bradley I like the idea of the sacrificial 'lamb' getting a tattoo of the corresponding rune.

An easy, if desperate, way to get coin for the desperate.

Perhaps a slave owner squeezes a little bit more from their elderly slaves by getting them all tattooed.

A rampaging army sacks a village and leaves half the survivors covered in healing runes.

I like this.

This is relevant to our interests. Also, if you listen to podcasts, and you don't listen to The Truth...well...you should be listening to The Truth.
