Your Halloween season reminder that not every angel is on the side of humanity and some are more scarier than anything in Hell.
Last Saturday I ran another session of my Call of Cthulhu Down Darker Trails game. The player actions inspired my "Run" column and now my scenario planning, session summary, and general thoughts are available for reading.
@Gorgmorg @attercap I wrote it all up into a nice blog post in order to encourage other people to report their techniques. https://alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2019-10-08_How_to_run_away
This week's column looks at the Trials used by Skeksis and Gelflings (both canon and original) to settle disputes and provides game mechanics in Fate Core for your War of the Dark Crystal campaign.

My monthly Call of Cthulhu Down Darker Trails group doesn't always get to game monthly. But we did this September! Here's the scenario I wrote and ran along with the session summary.
My blog goes back to Thra, the land of the #DarkCrystal to add new spells and a new mysticism mechanic to my #FateCore take on the War of the Dark Crystal.
I've been listening to New Politics a lot again since they released their new single "Comback Kid" and decided to make my favorite of their albums (Vikings) the topic of this month's #SeedTracks column. Using each track of an album as and adventure, world, or character seed.

Four Eva is another low-tier supervillain to add to your Fate Core / Venture City campaign. Do all of my supervillains have punny names? Maybe.
