Re: Vancouver 2016

Ah coming ot the misty halls of MU's western annex are you?

The most noir / period thing I can think of in Vancouver is the Police Museum, located in the old morgue.

Odd - horrific resin sculptures

Something stumbled across while checking out a site that vends original art by artists to the public. Browsing through the sculptures section and came across art by http://www.saatchiart.com/account/artworks/379488 this pair. Warning NSFW and weird. Body horror in a sense, even if the bodies themsel...

Santa Cecilia

This writeup is a bit of me going down the rabbit hole with something I found when looking up coastal rum runners from BC. One of the ships that our local maritime museum had pegged as a rum runner was the Chasina. This ship as it turns out had a bit of an interesting past, and even future. The Chas...

Re: Cephalophobia 2016!

Koakai, as you know I am a great fan of your BC dispatches. I'd so love to see some scenario seeds from your dark corner of the Earth. Feel free to shoot me ideers if you need a sounding board, or let me know if there is any other way I can help. Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk Oh I;m just try...

Sculptors Cave

Wow. Definitely creepy stuff. I love the mention that modern visitors are leaving stuff nearby, like the cult that was there still continues on.

Re: Cephalophobia 2016!

Oh ideas, ideas.
What should I work on to submit? Hard to make a choice, really. BC is full of wonderfully weird stuff, and things I can mine for scenario seeds.
God only knows I'll wuss out and not do the work for submitting any of them, but my mind is abuzz with possibilities.
