The Gassy Gnoll: A Cult Above (Repost)

Recently I was chatting with a friend of mine (hey Mike!) and the topic of cults came up. Yes, we have strange conversations. But it made me wonder about them in gaming terms. Should I be using them more often? How are they used well? And how should they be used?

The Gassy Gnoll: Long Strange (Musical) Trip to a Religious War

The Gassy Gnoll has one heck of an eclectic taste in music. And sometimes those tunes lead to bizarre ideas for stories I can use in games. I often wind my way through Spotify on wild journeys through various musical realms.

Yesterday I checked out the soundtrack for Guillermo Del Toro‘s latest film Pacific Rim, . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Long Strange (Musical) Trip to a Religious War

Supplement Review: Achtung! Cthulhu: The Trellborg Monstrosities by John Houlihan for Modiphius Entertainment

When you think of H.P. Lovecraft, what do you think of? For me, it’s his story “At the Mountains of Madness,” which forever merges Antarctica and Cthulhu in my mind. So I have to say I became a little giddy when I heard that Chris Birch and the talented crew Achtung! Cthulhu were tackling that . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Achtung!

Supplement Review: Deities & Demigods (1e)

Once upon a time I was 12 years old and started playing Dungeons & Dragons First Edition with my friends from junior high school. Many weekends between 1982 and 1985, Bob, Jayson, Dwight, Sean, and I could be found wiling away a Saturday afternoon by conquering fantastic lands and defeating horrific creatures – all in . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Deities & Demigods (1e)

Ten Links in the Chain: Food for Thought (14-DEC-2012)

Happy Friday everybody! And a very Hobbit-ish Friday at that!

Are you going to go see the new journey into Middle Earth? Or are you waiting a bit for the insanity to die down before you travel with Bilbo and the gang in 2D, 3D, 24fps, or on an IMAX screen? I’m excited to see . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Food for Thought (14-DEC-2012)

Adventure Review: Achtung! Cthulhu: Heroes of the Sea (Zero Point, Adventure 2) by Sarah Newton from Modiphius

As we’ve slowly lost the heroes of World War II to the ravages of time, we must continue to find ways to honor them so they and their sacrifices are not forgotten. One of the more interesting ways of late to memorialize the men and women of that generation while adding a fantastic element to . . . → Read More: Adventure Review: Achtung!

Publisher Interview: Chris Birch from Modiphius (Achtung! Cthulhu)

A few weeks ago I started a chat with Chris Birch of Modiphius about their game Achtung! Cthulhu. And as I learned more about their Lovecraft + World War II approach to a role-playing campaign, I knew I wanted to dive deeper. Thankfully Chris was kind enough to agree to an interview!

Adventure Review: Achtung! Cthulhu: Three Kings, Zero Point – Adventure 1 by Sarah Newton from Modiphius (Call of Cthulhu)

Adolph Hitler and Cthulhu. There’s a combination worthy of a few nightmares. Whether Hitler’s fascination with the occult is true or not is something for historians to decide, but as gamers I think it’s an area ripe for exploration. Ever since seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark, the idea of the Nazis on a quest . . . → Read More: Adventure Review: Achtung!

Adventure Review: Cthulhu Apocalypse: The Dead White World by Graham Walmsley and Pelgrane Press

I debated this week about what I should review for Halloween. Though I love zombies, I’ve expressed that love in earlier posts and wanted to focus on something different. And though adventuring in a Lovecraftian universe isn’t exactly new, the one supplement that I kept coming back to was Cthulhu Apocalypse: The Dead White World . . . → Read More: Adventure Review: Cthulhu Apocalypse: The Dead White World by Graham Walmsley and Pelgrane Press
