Pinned toot

Hi all! I've been GMing since the late '90s, in various systems & settings. Main game world is a D&D setting I started in '03 and is still πŸ‘Œβ€‹. Just started running a new thing for me: it's GURPS Horror/Spirits/Psi, set in a small U.S. city in the early 1980s, gritty realism except for secret paranormal stuff. It's going awesome so far! I call it and will doubtlessly toot some stuff about it.

The 1980s-set psi-horror campaign I'm GMing has just introduced the possibility of astral projection. I welcome ideas about what to do w/ the inner/outer astral plane :) Especially, creepy ideas.

At each refresh, this website will generate a realistic face of a person who doesn't exist, based on datasets of real pictures. Fascinating.

CW: the whole concept is a bit freaky. Eye contact. Backgrounds are almost always wierd, and if there are portions of other faces on the generated picture, they will look deformed and somewhat scary.

If you didn't know this song was from 2014, you'd swear it was from 1986. I listen to stuff like this while planning for the campaign

Now some actual early arena rock. Before researching for , I'd never heard of Triumph, who seem to be a Canadian fusion of Journey + Rush if Rush would just get over themselves πŸ˜œβ€‹

Session report, #GURPS #Spectral ; tw mental health stuff 

Improvised a seance in yesterday's session. I managed to make it creepy and vague, which I guess is the whole point! ​(PC's brother came back from 'Nam with PTSD-- and possibly a paranormal affliction-- and killed himself in session 2; he's the main ghost she's been seeing)

My two go-to resources for NPC names: 

1) thinkbabynames.com/
2) when I need one *now*, the References section of that day's Wikipedia Featured Article

Here's a marvelous style synthwave track that I adopted as the theme song-- I play it before each session for mood πŸ˜ˆβ€‹

#Spectral - The Pre-Beginning-ening 

This is a record of one of the early stages of my research process prior to starting my '80s psi-horror campaign.

(That research process overall, by now, has gotta be close to Ph.D. level in terms of volume. Except more fun! )
