No such thing as 'Western Civilization'

Link is to a PDF transcript of a BBC 4 Radio lecture.

TLDR - although we speak of cultures and civilizations as monolithic things, what we really are talking about is a set of Lego blocks that can be mixed and matched, appropriated, or even ignored.

At any rate, I found it a very good read.

My amazing wife +Jill Taplin is opening a new store in Seattle next month. Outsider Comics and Geek Boutique will cater to, and be a safe place for LGBT and women gamers, comics fans, and cosplayers.

She'd love your support, if its only to spread the word!

Resharing in case someone happens to follow me and not Rob. It's a long article, but fully worth reading.

Wow, this sounds pretty good. I've not seen the original film, though I did have the Viewmaster set as kid.*

*Yup. I'm old.

This is very good news: the Stranger Things soundtrack + score is excellent.

Prey for the Gods

I have very recently announced loudly, in public, on more than one occasion, that I would NEVER Kickstart a video game. There are clearly too many x-factors to making a video game; it's a recipe for heartache.

Well...never say never.

This game looks utterly amazing even in it's unfinished form. I'm thinking that gambling $15.00 for the chance to play might be very well worth my while. Kickstarter link below if you are curious:

Godbound

I'm eventually going to share my thoughts about this game on my (largely abandoned) blog: but wow. I love everything about this RPG from start to finish.

Elevator pitch: if you love the flavor of Exalted but are annoyed by the fiddly mechanics, you owe it to yourself to check out this game. Although it uses familiar 'OSR' style mechanics, the implementation inspires flavorful, cinematic play.

If you want to see what you are getting yourself into before investing in the Deluxe version of the game, the fully-playable basic version is available for free from the link: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/185959/Godbound-A-Game-of-Divine-Heroes-Free-Edition

Great post about what actually constitutes 'Old Skool' play. TLDR: for those of us who played these games when they were new, it was largely what you made of it.
