The DEVIL’S CITY fiction/gaming Kickstarter.

The Devil’s City: Horror Fiction & 5e Gaming Conjoined looks very nice.

So much so that normally I’d be picking it up. I’m not really in the best position to buy stuff like this right now, given my own project* and everything, but it does look nifty. And goodness knows I want to encourage such things, so: check it out.

*The temptation to link to said project was strong, there, but I’m TRYING to be helpful.

Embrace the madness that is PONIES OF TINDALOS.

The highly unofficial* crossover between Call of Cthulhu and My Little Ponies is apparently real, and it’s going to be spectacular:

So what’s next for “The Ponies of Tindalos”? April Fools is over all around the world, so we can write more without risk of it being taken for a joke.

First – it wasn’t a joke! We announced this supplement yesterday because of its crazy mood, but we will release it.

I had forgotten Liam existed. He was amusing to write. Highly amusing.

No @WashingCon this year.

Not because of the coronavirus: they’re instead going to be switching venues for WashingCon to downtown, which means that they’re going to need an additional six months to get everything squared away. Ach, well. It would admittedly be nice for many people to be able to take the Metro in, although I liked the necessity of getting a hotel room if I wanted to run games both days. Downtown DC hotel rooms are… not cheap.

In Nomine Revisited: Secret Societies in Alpha Complex.

Secret Societies in Alpha Complex

Or, “Why Secret Societies are not the answer, either.”

Many Demon Princes have infiltrated Alpha Complex, of course. They send in their spies, who develop their own organizations inside the Principality, hoping to quietly take control through influence and corruption. Gee, I wonder what the Computer might call groups of Commie Mutant Traitors who were formally plotting in secret to bend society to their will?

That’s right: Secret Societies, just like in the original game.  And just like in the original game, Secret Societies are largely useless!  For their members, at least. Demon Princes and GMs alike will find them very useful when it comes to causing problems.

In Nomine Revisited: The Computer, Balseraph Prince of Paranoia.

As I said, this needed some cleanup work. But, hey, glad I got better in twenty years, right?

In Nomine Revisited: The Principality of Alpha Complex.

I wrote up Paranoia old school Paranoia — for In Nomine once, and now I have the files again. I’ll be putting up the stuff that I did back then over the next few days. It needs… a little tightening up, honestly. Sometimes I can get away with proof-reading, sometimes I need to do a bit more. This is a ‘bit more’ kind of situation.

In Nomine Revisted: Pentacostco.com

This one I had to edit a little.

Pentacostco.com

The computer revolution (particularly the Internet) has not been a completely positive development, from the point of view of Heaven.  On the one hand, it allows all sorts of people to come together in new and interesting ways, to accomplish things that they never could by themselves; on the other hand, well, it allows all sorts of people to come together in new and interesting ways, to accomplish things that they never could by themselves.  Free will can be maddening at times, especially when you have only an empirical understanding of it.  This might partially explain why the relevant section of the Heavenly Host immediately targeted Pentacostco.com from Day One, and will continue to target it until somebody gets the hint; it may not be all that important, but it’s something that they can actually strike at, by God.
