None this week, on with the show!
“Criminals” (Psychological Party Game)
There’s a fun new reprinting of Criminals, originally released in 2007 from the guys at Critcal Hits Studios. The game sounds like a lot of fun, the rules are free and you can get the cards for it printed up via DriveThruCards, which is another cool new thing that we didn’t know about. This topic is a double whammy!
Outro: “Stande Alone” ~ LukHash
Today we’re joined by cartoonist and illustrator James Stowe whom you probably know from his awesome D&D For Dads custom character illustrations/sheets we talked about a while back. He’s got some cool stuff going on including working with Daniel Solis and doing some custom character designs for JourneyQuest!
We’d also like to remind you that the d20Monkey caption contest is just begging to be captioned with all of your witty holiday-cheer infused charm. You can also win a copy of Scott Fitzgerald Gray’s new book “A Prayer for Dead Kings and Other Tales”
Haste – Episode 13: Co-hosted with Carl Bussler of Flagons & Dragons. Cthulhu, D&D Rubbish and GM Merit Badges!Intro: “Prelude” ~ LukHash
Outro: “Stand ALone” ~ LukHash
In this episode I give Micah a well deserved day off and hang out with the very cool Carl Bussler, of the exquisite (and ENnie nominated) Flagons & Dragons podcast. After listening to Haste, immediately go listen to one of their shows – these guys know gaming and they know beer too! Carl tells us what’s coming up on their podcast, including Zombie Month: wherein misadventures in hacking up pumpkins with ZombieTools and much more shall ensue all month long! In other news I should remind you that the Fiasco contest ends TOMORROW (8/30)!
It’s been a while since the last Free System Friday so I thought I’d toss another one your way this week. Let’s keep it short and sweet shall we? Chances are most of you know a thing or two about Cthulhu mythos and if not then you can definitely get started here.
You might also want to read a short story or two by H.P. Lovecraft himself before diving into the Cthulhu game to help set proper mood and tone, think of it as awesome homework if you will.
The Call of Cthulhu s about to celebrate it’s 30th year as a tabletop RPG, so if you haven’t gotten in on the action yet (like me) now would be a great time to do so! Head on over to the Chaosmium website and pick up the Call of Cthulhu Quick-Start package – a game that can only end in tears, and by tears I mean insanity and/or a horrific demise for the PC’s and perhaps the entire world.
Until next time my fellow curious investigators…if there is a next time.
