Yeah! Baseball jersey style... a white body with long black sleeves that peak at the collar. And the "band" image is on the chest and maybe a list of concert locations on the back, but the list of locations is a classic list of locations for the Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign.

But wait, wrong campaign...shouldn't it be locations from the Spawn of Spazathoth campaign instead?

Or would that be Sean, or maybe Shaun?

Good point. I guess I'd be partial to Shaun, as a nod to Shaun of the Dead.

This is going to be one very obscure hipster reference to an obscure Mythos joke. "Oh, this old tee shirt? It's an indie thrash band that doesn't exist. You probably haven't heard of it."

Enjoyed the episode, especially the part on using HPL's commonplace book to generate scenario ideas. It made me search for my copy of the Wordsworth Classics version of M. R. James' "Collected Ghost Stories" (Wordsworth Classics, 1992). That volume ends with a short article written by James entitled "Stories I have Tried to Write" in which he describes several story ideas that failed to come to fruition, as well as a few dark hints. if a copy can be found of the book, these too may prove of use.

CAS's "Door to Saturn" sounds distressingly similar to something I've been working on called "Dumbwaiter to Uranus."

Great show, guys. Makes me wonder whether a crowdsourced Commonplace Book could feasibly work...I suppose it would just amount to a compendium of plot hooks.
