Histoire de se changer les idées et de sortir un peu +Thomas B. du whistleblowing et +Loris Gianadda de Trump, voilà une question que je me posais alors que je relis la série des Malaussène de Daniel Pennac.

Benjamin Malaussène c'est clairement un Godwalker du Bouc Emissaire. Il y a d'ailleurs plein de choses, à la relecture, qui me font penser à du Unknown Armies à la française.

Mais je me posais une question que je ne m'étais jamais posée auparavant: les avatars ont des pouvoirs liés au rôle universel qu'ils essaient d'incarner. Mais ces pouvoirs sont toujours positifs. Dans le cadre d'un rôle comme le Bouc Emissaire, je ne vois pas bien comment tourner positivement de tels pouvoirs.

Et d'ailleurs, a-t'on des exemples d'avatars dont les pouvoirs les desservent ? Est-ce que dans ce cas ils poursuivent leur voie uniquement dans l'Espoir d'intégrer les 333 ?

J'ai fini de lire Coriolis, le JdR SF venu de Suède mais inspiré d'Arabie. C'est de la bonne came même si je suis un peu frustré par la dimension purement cosmétique de l'inspiration 1001 Nuits. En bref, ça vaut le coup, mais ils sont passés à côté d'un jeu qui aurait pu être vraiment unique.

The third installment of our Dungeon Crawl Classics meets +Zak Sabbath's Vornheim write-up is now on ENWorld. Mostly inquiries and negotiations this time, very few dice rolled. Some of the nifty rumours designed by Zak's reader are coming into play very nicely.

Unknown Armies fiction by the man himself. I took a Linocut as well, for good measure. Looking forward to this one, +Greg Stolze !

I'll be buying this for sure, and I can think of a few gamers who might be interested as well. 
Well, would you look at that. You can now pre-order the Hong Kong city guide I wrote for +Pelgrane Press Ltd.

The write up to the second session of +Zak Sabbath's Vornheim using the Dungeon Crawl Classics engine is now online on EN World.

A search for an ophidoscope leads our characters to consider illegal means to amass enough treasure fast to purchase one that is available for sale...

J'ai des souvenirs d'avoir été proprement terrifié par ce bouquin à la fin de mon adolescence. Je ne crois pas que je serais capable de le relire un jour, mais il n'y a pas à en douter, c'est un bouquin d'épouvante au sens premier du terme.

So I've finally managed to get my Vornheim campaign started, motorized with Dungeon Crawl Classics.

+Zak Sabbath's Vornheim is a city fantasy environment with heavy Jack Vance and Fritz Leiber vibes as well as Zak's own gaming obsessions (but we'll get to those when the players start unraveling them).

Dungeon Crawl Classics is a D&D variant that introduces a lot of unpredactibility to the game, as you will clearly see from this first session.

The write-up is available on EN World. First session was last night, next one in a week's time.

Un comic qui lorgne fort vers les codes asiatiques, mais qui reste quand même un comic. Un début très prometteur en tous cas. Et puis c'est franchement très beau.

I can think of a few people amongst my French followers who know and love Cortex, and while they themselves might not exactly fit the bill, they might know people who do. Spread the word, people ! 
Aggressive Inclusivity

So I'm developing an all-new edition/version/core rules set, Cortex Prime, and while the spine and muscles of it are pretty much a solo effort I'm looking ahead to a Kickstarter that should include works by other people. Other designers.

This is that weird thing where I'm like, I would really like to hire people who do not look like me to write, design, and create settings and rules plug-ins for the game, and pay them well for it, but they also need to know the game.

So if you are or you know women, PoC, LGBTQ/NB folk, designers and writers who have loved or still love Marvel Heroic, Leverage, Smallville, or Firefly, and you think they or you can handle my laid-back Kiwi management style and produce rock-solid shit-hot awesome work for me on a not-terrible schedule, let me know.

Drop me an email at seth AT magic-vacuum DOT com with your enthusiastic vision. I want to help you help me make it happen.
