Re: MUP 18- New Keepers & Blob Monsters

Ok, with due respect to a veteran Keeper, I'd like to push back a little here. I obviously can't say I've had tons of experience with this rule yet, but I'd urge you to give it a chance. I've been exploring a similar mechanic in the rules-light system Cthulhu Dark, which calls for players to roll t...

Re: 072 - The Bleeding Stone of Iphtah

From Chaosium? Have they reprinted it? I didn't notice. It was first printed in White Dwarf magazine back in the 1980s!

Re: MUP 18- New Keepers & Blob Monsters

One of the best things you can do to prepare for a session, is to make yourself a list of names. Get a lined foolscap sheet and divide it vertically into three, then fill each of the "boxes" created with an ordinary name. I used to use a phonebook for this, but they are less useful these days, but y...

Re: 5th of November

I suppose that its because it's a country-specific festival. It's all about an attempt to destroy the English Parliament. It's a bit like Thanks Giving. While the British are aware of of it, because it's specifically about the founding of America as a state it's not celebrated much outside of the US...

Re: Criminal Investigators?

I know you've had good answers from Keepers Dan, Murph and Dr. Gerard, but as a keeper since 1984, I've run games in most situations, and although I've never had a long-term campaign with all the players being criminals, I've run games where some players are, and to be honest, in most games players ...

Re: Introduce Yourself

I am and Englishman in his Forties, who's day job is working with computers, but who by night is a mild-mannered Weird fiction writer and illustrator. I discovered Howard, Lovecraft and Smith, in that order, from the late 70s to the mid 80s as I got into Role Playing Games. By the Mid-Eighties I was...
