Idle musing, copied from Monsters & Manuals.

On one hand, I am happy more people are gaming (and it is not just "gamer" gamers but the rest as well). It is great, brings in new ideas, new buzz, a bunch of creativity. People even discover the things I and my friends like. There are more of us. Great.

On the other hand - to continue the beer analogy - I am seeing a push to get my comfortable neighbourhood pub cleaned up for the "right" crowd. The latest spat over James Raggi is pretty much that moment where the young, hip property developer comes in and, looking around admiringly, and exclaims - "This place is SO authentic! But I wonder... could we stop with the smoking, and start offering kale lattes? And those weirdos with the nasty talk in the corner? I would put the new cooler right there." And so on and so forth.

Perhaps we need just a little gatekeeping in our hobby. Perhaps we also have a way of life worth protecting. Who knows? Because I used to think there was space for everyone. Now a lot of folks think there is no space for ME. But who owns gaming?

A long overdue review of The Mortuary Temple of Esma, a challenging and imaginative AD&D scenario by Anthony Huso , inspired by the odd and eerie Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun.

Celebrated publisher of edgy role-playing products who believes in free speech and breaking social taboos is thrown under the bus by his former "fanbase" and freelancers (whom he had treated much better than the RPG industry tends to), for, you guessed it, indulging in free speech and breaking social taboos.

He was good, but he was not 100% PURE. He had muttered thoughtcrime in his sleep. "I thought he was a good man, but I never knew him very well", "I suspected he had something going on", "I never liked him that much", the nervous but relieved neighbours comment.

"F"

Hi Folks!

For US customers who are interested in Echoes From Fomalhaut, the zines are now available from *Exalted Funeral*. They also carry a good range of old-school zines and supplements which may be of interest.

Google Plus is going away in a few months, and this group will be going away with it. Many gamers have moved to MeWe, and, having tried it for a few days, I am also fairly happy with it. You can reach me there if you would like, and I have even set up a new *Echoes From Fomalhaut* group there (link below).

If you do not feel like joining MeWe, you can still check out my blog for any news about Echoes and other EMDT releases, or visit the Knights and Knaves Alehouse, TheRPGSite or Dragonsfoot. And I will keep this group updated as long as G+ is around. The Titanic would not be a fun place without some music to go with our iced drink!

In any case, hope to see you around, wherever life might take us. It has been my distinct pleasure, and God bless!

Obligatory "going to MeWe" post. Also, why Google Plus closing down is good for all of us. Somewhat political.

Hi Folks,

I am happy to announce the publication of the third issue of Echoes From Fomalhaut! This zine includes an adventure module set on an abandoned resort island dotted with pleasure palaces, enigmatic caverns and the relics of a bygone age; one half of the Isle of Erillion mini-setting (suitable for use on its own, or placed somewhere in your home campaign); a fold-out GM's hex map of the isle, and more!

The cover for this issue was done by +Stefan Poag, who also worked on the interior illustrations, along with +Denis McCarthy (with further pieces from the classics). It is available for purchase from https://emdt.bigcartel.com/
