Today is Memorial Day here in the United States. A day to remember all those who sacrificed their lives in our armed forces to preserve our freedoms. They must not be forgotten.

But it made me think about how to place memorials in our game worlds... So I came up with a set of tables to help inspire a few such reminders in those fictional places.

Cthulhu rising... this seems a logical outgrowth of that event, doesn't it? ;)

While fish are disappearing from the oceans, squid, octopus, and cuttlefish populations have been rising since the 1960s. Why?

We had some fence blow down at our house back in April and are just now arranging to have it fixed (though not until July) and it got me wondering if there was a way to turn a fence into an encounter idea or plot thread...

Guess what? There is!

Last month we had a chunk of fence blow down in our back yard and we’re finally working on getting it repaired/replaced. Unfortunately it is going to take a couple of months because we’…

The Bladen Journal reports that a mummified hand found in Castleton, North Yorkshire, England is the only known ‘Hand of Glory’, a grotesque artifact meant to aid thieves in their work during the night, still in existence. This mummified hand supposedly h

Do you ever use physical competitions in your roleplaying worlds? We've seen jousts and other feats of skills, but why not create some unique ones for our own particular settings? Here's some madness I came up with to do just that... and I spun it two ways - first as a way to inspire some competition and second as a way to create some devious traps or puzzles.

Love it when the local wildlife is coopted by a wizard, shaman, or shapechanger to remove evidence from a crime scene...

Canuck the crow, Vancouver's most notorious bird, is being accused of flying away with a knife from a crime scene.

"Take thy beak from out my heart, and -- Oh! I see you've got a knife, now! Okay. I -- I guess the metaphorical beak is all right, then. I don't want any trouble."

What kinds of skeletons do you keep in your closet? These are pretty darned creepy.

http://www.earthables.com/weird-skeletons-merrylin-cryptid-museum-1804190985.html?c=wp
Back in 2006, a sealed basement beneath a London orphanage was unlocked after many years. The building was actually scheduled for demolition, and so it's a good thing no one demolished the place before taking a peek inside the long-forgotten dusty space. At first glance, there were hundreds of large...

Do you live in Colorado Springs, CO? Do you like crossfit? Why not check out the box I go to 3 or 4x a week - Crossfit Continuum. It's right off Woodmen and I-25. We're a friendly bunch of folks. We have great trainers. We work hard. And if you had told me two years ago that I would come to find myself addicted to crossfit (as a 40-something computer geek who sits all day and has never been a gym rat) I would have laughed. Now I feel guilty when I don't get in enough. :) Come see what it's all about and I bet you'll be a fan in no time!
