Sure, Halloween’s just passed, and with it came and went a whole slew of awful (in a good way, to many) horror movies. And, I mean, we’ve pretty much all stared at a screen, biting our nails, and occasionally shouting, “Don’t go in there!” We think about what we’d ...

Just because Halloween’s over doesn’t mean you have to put away all the scary stuff until next July 5th (seriously, that’s when I started seeing Halloween stuff this year). You can certainly infuse some horror into your RPG sessions. And a pre-made adventure like The Chapel on the C...

Cults. You’d think they’d get along, having that whole “worship a long-forgotten god that wants to destroy everything” bit. But such is not the case. So they’re warring with one-another. Though, cults by their nature tend to not have enough to have whole armies worth of ...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! At least, as far as I’m concerned, anyway. And playing Malifaux certainly is appropriate, as it’s got a rather spooky and macabre feel to it. And now you can check out what will be released this month for the game (as well as a sneak-peek at...
