Cthulhu Dark sounds like it might be a new blend from a board game cafe for one of their coffees, or perhaps a dark chocolate dessert. But, in actuality, it’s a new horror RPG that’s up on Kickstarter. This is horror role-playing cranked up to 11. You thought you could handle this sort of...

You might think to yourself, “man, all these zombies around here. I should just blast myself into space. It’s probably safer there.” But that might not actually be the case. There’s war among the stars, too. So you might as well pick your poison. Take on some new releases for ...

London has had an occult air to it for much of its history. Strange, hidden groups worship long-forgotten gods. But what’s happening is coming to a head. The year is 1927 and if you want to see 1928, you and your fellow investigators must try and stop a Great Old One from coming in and [&hellip...

So, the thing with Kickstarter exclusives is that you can’t sell them after the Kickstarter campaign, but you can give them away as promotional materials. I’ve learned this over the years, seeing how they’re handled. It’s a good way to still get those items, though it can some...

It’s about to get really warm here in Georgia. We’ve had a mild winter, and I can only imagine what the summer’s going to be like. Best to think about colder times. Though, when thinking about them, not letting your mind be melted into insanity by Great Old Ones is probably a good i...
