Item Seed: The Geniture Surveyance.

The Geniture Surveyance

 

Links to this website pops up on social media of all sorts with remarkable frequency. It resembles a fairly standard online quiz, “What kind of [Oddball Thing] are you?” edition.  People who take the test are asked a set of ten apparently-unrelated questions, then they’re told that they’re most like a Labrador Retriever or whatnot. The questions change, and the results, but there are about six or seven similar tests that all come from the same website.

Illuminati Secret World Legends pin? IT MUST BE MINE.

So I’m putting up a link here to remind me of that, when I actually have money to buy one.

The Illuminati one looks pretty sweet, honestly. And blue is my favorite color,  which is one reason I went Illuminati in the first place when I signed up for The Secret World. …Dag, I’ve been playing this game for three years now? And tomorrow is the start of the Halloween event. Fun times.

Quote of the Day, You Just Have To Laugh edition.

The Alas Vegas Kickstarter has been a thin slice of Hell for its creator. Remarkably so, in fact: I’m not a superstitious man, but I have to wonder whether the universe saw the description “an RPG of bad memories, bad luck & bad blood” and decided to take it as a challenge.  Anyway, the poor bastard running this has now discovered that his non-American hardcover books came back from the printer in clumps, so all of those had to be pulped; and the American softcovers (which is what I pledged for) all decided to go to Reno, and nobody knows why.

The Rippers Bundle of Holding.

The latest Bundle of Holding is a mild extravagance that I will have to pay for later, but Rippers is a Victorian horror RPG for Savage Worlds, and it was just a little too tempting.  Particularly since it is, after all, Halloween season. Two weeks to go; this shall be the week of the great Gathering of the Candy.  You have to curate your Halloween candy properly, of course. It must be balanced between what your kids will eat later, what you will eat later, what will make you too sick if you eat too much of it, and what you just want two or three of and then the rest can be handed out later*.

*Turns out that I like frozen Butterfingers. Bit of a surprise to me, that. And Smarties are just flat-out dangerous to me at this point; just thinking about them gives me a headache. A delicious, delicious headache…

Location seed: State of Transylvania.

I think that this may have been inspired by a Suppressed Transmission? I can’t remember and my books are behind several physical walls of sewing equipment. But it sounds like an idea that Ken Hite might have.

The State of Transylvania

 

It’s always existed, but you’ve never heard of it.  It’s not on the map, there’s no 51st star in the flag, and it has no representation in Washington.  As long as you’re not actually in Transylvania.

 

If you are in Transylvania, then it’s a somewhat rural state whose capital and major city is Teakle. A history of the state — if again, read inside Transylvania — reveals that it became a state in 1815, barely sided with the Union in the Civil War, and generally existed, unremarkably, for the next hundred and fifty years.  The legislature is Democratic, the governor is Republican, and the Senate and House delegation is split evenly. Transylvania has 4 electoral votes, and has been a reliable Republican Presidential state since 2004.  Apparently, Transylvania’s Makepeace Bishop served as Vice President in 1880, and Horace Leviathan Jones was a strong Presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket in 1912. The major industry today is livestock; Transylvania still sends endless streams of cows and pigs north to Chicago for the slaughter.

In Nomine Revisited: Horse.

I almost put this up last night, but the Hecate writeup intervened. I like to put things like Horse in games;  sometimes it’s nice to look the players in the eye and go “I don’t know how it happened, either.” Not everything can be explained, hey?

Horse

Ghost

 

Corporeal Forces: 2 Strength: 4 Agility: 4

Ethereal Forces: 1 Intelligence: 1 Precision: 3

Celestial Forces: 3 Will: 8 Perception: 4

Skills: Dodge/6, Fighting/6, Running/6, Tactics/6

Focus: A stone torch-holder

Horse is, frankly, impossible. Horses don’t become ghosts. They also don’t have 7 Forces in life. Unfortunately, nobody seemed to explain this to Horse.

Call of Duty’s remarkably insidious new ad.

I don’t play Call of Duty and I’m not going to buy this, but mad props to the people who put this commercial together.

Yes, I said ‘mad props.’ I don’t care if that dates me. (more…)
