  5. "Any resemblance to a human being is, well, coincidental." That's Jar-Eel's story arc. She passionately loves what she can do, but she fervently wants to keep her humanity. But it's hard, when you have one foot firmly placed in the divine world.
  6. At least Myers-Briggs doesn't make blanket statements (as far as I know) like "all Drow Uz are ISTJ" or "everyone living in the Lunar Empire is INFP"

  11. @Jeff posted this in the RuneQuest FB group: to which Matthew Cole commented as follows:
  12. Last year, in a creative collaboration with Chaosium, Professional Writing students from Taylor University (Upland, IN) created and published a Call of Cthulhu scenario as part of their studies. Today, the published result of that creative collaboration, the scenario Refractions of Glasston, has received recognition with a Judges' Spotlight Award in the 2020 ENnie Awards. "This is a wonderful honour and recognition for the students, who managed all aspects of the RPG design process from research, writing, editing, art direction, layout, proofreading, and finally release", said Chaosium vice president Michael O'Brien, who established the project with Prof T.R. Knight of the Professional Writing department at Taylor University. With Prof Knight, and Chaosium's Mike Mason (Call of Cthulhu creative director) and Lynne Hardy (associate editor) on hand as mentors, the Taylor U students went through the entire RPG adventure design process – from idea genesis to publication – within one hectic semester. Though many of the team are members of the professional writing major, this was their first foray into the world of RPG writing. Refractions of Glasston was published in The Miskatonic Repository, Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu community content platform on DriveThruRPG, in December 2019. The scenario takes place in a rural town in northwest Indiana (near Taylor U itself) in the classic Call of Cthulhu era of the 1920s and builds on existing local legends of supernatural happenings. Chaosium thanks the ENnies judges, and congratulates Sam Guinsatao, Carson Jacobs, Joy Lemont, Elijah Oates, Rayce Patterson, Emily Pawlowski, J. Tucker White, T.R. Knight, Mike Mason, and Lynne Hardy!
