Re: What do Keepers owe their players and vice versa?

As a keeper I owe it to my pcs to drive them all (at least temporarily) insane before being subject to disassembly at the hands / paws / tentacles / claws of some unnamable horror from beyond space, time and comprehension. In 'game terms' only... Unless my younger sibling is playing in which case an...

In heavily accented sherpa, very weakly, he says the word for "help." Wangdi carefully hurries forward to examine the fallen child sized bundle. Despite the terrifyingly bizarre events of these last few days Wangdi will still aid those in need, and if Mister Odell us responsible for having harmed s...

Re: Cthulhu Dark -- A Secret Everest Expedition

As Wangdi steps slowly closer to the boulder, he hears the rhythmic hiss of soft, labored breathing. Peeking around the boulder and the scant protection of his pack, Wangdi spots a bit of cloth...a scrap of brown tattered robe. Circling at some distance, an oblong bundle comes into view. It is movi...

Re: Kid comics?

I would always suggest Asterix and Tintin comics for kids and adults alike. Both are fun, intellectually stimulating, can be used to encourage reading and addressing important life issues, have great art and engaging story lines. Plus you can read them with your kids and enjoy the stories as much as...

Things get increasingly more physically taxing as the air gets thinner -- at some point even normal tasks might require an exhaustion roll, but not yet.

Re: DELTA GREEN STRANGE AUTHORITIES PAPERBACK/QUESTION

Likewise, I've supported the DG fiction Kickstarter, at the $30 level so I'm looking forward to the ebook *and* playtesting the new DG rpg alpha! Actually as a petty vindictive keeper I'm really just looking forward to hurting my players in new and exciting ways within a contemporary setting. In fac...
