Episode 81 - Dead of Night

The Good Friends of Jackson Elias are back, and after our run of Cthulhu-heavy episodes, we're talking about Dead of Night, a horror roleplaying game where the tentacles are strictly optional.

In particular, we talk about the history of Dead of Night, how the mechanics work, and the many different ways we've used it or seen it used.

Described as “the roleplaying game of campfire tales, slasher movies and b-movie horror”, Dead of Night is a fast, simple game perfect for all manner of horror-one shots. All this has made it a mainstay of the British convention scene, but its exposure across the pond seems to be more limited. This episode is our attempt at a little cultural exchange. If you hear scratching at your bedroom door tonight, you can thank us in the morning, should you live to see it.
