  • We've started a new game, and there's a short write-up of our first session over here.   We've also got a small Facebook group where we post our drawings and stuff first, so if you're a very punishment-seeking individual, you can check that out over here.   Take care everyone, and I...

  • The past few days have been pretty miserable. The stress about the last two cores, the drinking, the headaches. The headaches have been terrible. Bennie seemed to be running into them too.  We need to figure this out, maybe I can do some Poesis work, and make it so he...

  • Stubbornness?Hm? What was that?When I grabbed the photograph. The one I connected to. The fact I refused to back down and put it back on the pedestal. That stubbornness is what connected me to you. From that moment on, I could hear you.Oh, yes! She said that, didn't she-- oh...

    The New History of Quinton Sharpe

  • The lucky thing with rewriting your history to fit in with the new additions is that I have a fairly clean break point. My life in England doesn't do too much to effect my life in the United States. What I can say is different now is that instead of...

  •     It stands to reason that when one develops a passion, it invades the other facets of ones life. I really don’t remember which love came first for me, archery or history, but the two are inexorably linked. They fed off each other, encouraging me to explore their topics...

  • I can no longer ignore what I've known for a long while now. There is an ever increasing chance that I'm not going to make it out of this alive. It's going to be one hell of a ride until then, and I'm alright with that. I mean, it's not...

  • Well it looks like we have finally come to the end of the puzzle.  Too bad we don't have a great solution besides charge forward and hope for the best.  Bennie has broken the world quite effectivly and to even try to get to him we have broken ourselves to...

  • Allegro says that it is a composer. That is what happens when someone makes the music for other people to play. Sometimes, composers also get to conduct, which means they force the other people to play their song. I am going to be a conductor, but i will not use music....

    The Shop is Now Open

    Premise

    "Thorn Valley is a town in North Dakota."

    Well, there's your first lesson in subjectivity. To the residents, Thorn Valley is a community with a rich history, and strong, loving ties of friendship and family. To the government, it's just a collection of squatters. Selfish old people raising children in the middle of a coal seam fire, with neither zip code nor more than the barest legal right to stay.

    To the employees of Geppetto Corp, it's the village next door. It's a village that needs to stay ignorant of their true history.

    And to the five newcomers? For them, Thorn Valley's small, repressive life is bursting with unrealized potential...

    Style of play

    There's only one way a GM can really betray you, and that's by not taking the things you care about seriously. This is a game for people who like to be scared; people who like to cry and invest themselves. We joke, too, and there's nothing wrong with joke sessions. But the more thought you put into your character, the more you help the other players, the deeper you delve, the more of yourself you give, the harder the GM works.
