Oh, wow, the Vault-Tec DLC dropped already!

I was expecting it to drop at midnight.  Actually, to be honest: I expected it to drop a couple of days from now, because it’s been a surreal few days around here and I forgot that today was Monday.  The days just blur together when the kids aren’t in school and you’re no longer following the news…

Anyway, the Vault-Tec DLC is up!  Gonna download it, finish my posts for the night, then fire that sucker up.

Adventure seed: The Devil Double-Bind

Adventure seed: The Devil Double-Bind

Somewhere out there in the multiverse there is a continuum where the forces of supernatural Good and Evil are locked in a nigh-eternal struggle. Neither side wishes to provoke a final battle, because neither side is confident of victory.  So an armed and often threadbare truce barely holds, but is bitterly resented by both sides.  Both sides scheme and plot and hatch byzantine plans to gain momentary advantage. Often the plans are subtle and complex, as befits the machinations of immortals…

And sometimes there’s just a disaster in the paperwork.

The Ramen of the Gods, apparently.

Seriously, this article on how to make your own, highly superior, cup of ramen sounds amazing.  It’s also apparently the subject of some flat-out content ripoff by Buzzfeed, but I’m not here for that anymore. I’m just here for the noodle cup.

The Hillfolk Bundle of Holding is a nice deal.

I already have the books in hardcover – all hail the mighty Kickstarter – but Hillfolk is one of those game systems that can be valuable to a GM even if you don’t actually play it, so by all means: grab it from Bundle of Holding.  Robin Laws consistently comes up with gaming innovations that are both interesting, and entertaining to play.  …This is not all that common, alas.

And he’s right: it’s being offered an absurdly low price.

PS: The Bundle of Lamentations (Lamentations of the Flame Princess, to be precise), on the other hand, is something I know nothing of.

So: “What We Do in the Shadows.” Was it good?

“What We Do in the Shadows” is a[] Australian [New Zealand*] mockumentary about vampires. Has anybody seen it? Does it, ha, suck?

It’s apparently not on Netflix, which makes it more complicated for me to watch it. And God knows that I’ve got a backlog. Still, the trailer looks pretty good.

[*As per comments, I apparently got the country wrong. I regret the error.]

My Patreon short-short-short “All Your Bard…”

I think that I don’t like the full title (“All Your Bard Are Belo… Sorry“), after all. Too topical, too cute, not really descriptive; ach, well.  This is why they call it practice.

As always, my Patreon is here.

Mr PJ Lifestyle piece on smuggling in RPGs.

Found here. Short version: it’s a great way to complicate your players’ lives.  And they don’t have to even be playing bad people in order to be smugglers, either!  I mean, look at the Underground Railroad, or those people who smuggled Bibles into Communist nations (still do, when it comes to North Korea).

The “What the HELL, Guy Ritchie?” King Arthur: Legend of the Sword trailer.

I’m not even upset: it could very well be an awesome flick. It’s got fireballs and magic swords and Oliphaunts and dryads and exploding armies and kung fu and… OK, yeah, half of the SCA will be there on Opening Night and I’ll probably be one of them. Still. How did he get away with going gonzo like this?

I mean, I liked The Man From U.N.C.L.E., but apparently not enough other people did.
