Some great thoughts on the Suppressed Transmission columns by Kenneth Hite, and why you should check out the collections: “Ken Hite’s Suppressed Transmission reviewed, with a couple of long excerpts to illustrate and a dip into Charles Fort at the end.”
If I’m producing a podcast, you know it won’t be long before Arkham Horror gets into the mix. Episode 3 of Carnagecast is the first in a multi-part recording of an Arkham Horror session from last month. We played with the Dunwich, Kingsport and Miskatonic Horror expansions, so there were cards flying every which way.
Give it a listen, won’t you? I would love to get some feedback.
Dan of More Than Dice has a cool concept for a cardsharp cursed with immortality and the ability to inflict good and bad fortune on anyone who takes a card: Jack of Spades: Cursed Hero.
I especially dig the representation of the Deck of Fates in HERO terms. It adds an element of randomness that one doesn’t often find in super hero combat.
br1ck reminds me that in addition to the Albany Gamedays, the gamers of New York’s Capitol District also have the Schenectady Wargamers Association’s monthly gameathons to enjoy.
They include both role-playing and board games, so there’s something for every tabletop enthusiast. The SWA also hosts the annual Council of 5 Nations convention in October, which I do hope to check out some day, as it’s rather popular with the Carnage gang.
Albany Gameday XIV is on deck for Saturday, September 3rd. Hosted by friendly local game store Zombie Planet in Albany, New York, it’s a day long event that occurs biannually or so.
Watch the website to see what games hit the schedule, or shoot them an email to run something yourself.
Did you know about the 1893 shower of toads in Maine? “Millions of them half an inch long were seen hopping in all directions.”
Raging Swan gives us ten nifty words to work into role-playing. And that’s one post in a whole series!
A most excellent resource. The years I read TSR’s Dragonlance, Spelljammer and Forgotten Realms fiction did more to dump archaic words in my head than any other body of work, excepting maybe Lord of the Rings.
