  8. "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.
  9. 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"

  14. @Jeff posted this in the RuneQuest FB group: to which Matthew Cole commented as follows:
  15. 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! Read more about the project in the updates made throughout the semester: Students at Taylor University to write and publish a Call of Cthulhu Adventure in new Professional Writing course Update on Chaosium's collaboration with Taylor University's Professional Writing Course At the halfway point: our Call of Cthulhu collaboration with Taylor University's Professional Writing Course The Semester is over and Taylor U students' Call of Cthulhu scenario 'Refractions of Glasston' is now out! Our student collaboration 'Refractions of Glasston' earns critical praise
  16. Vale James Holloway. (Jim Holloway also did the covers for RQ3's Daughters of Darkness and The Lost City of Eldarad, his art by far the best parts of both those otherwise lamentable Avalon Hill releases.)
  17. Chaosium mourns the passing of renowned RPG artist James Holloway. In amongst the memorable work he did for Dungeons & Dragons, Dragon Magazine, Paranoia, and many other titles, was his beautiful cover art for Savage Mountains, a supplement for Chaosium's King Arthur Pendragon RPG. Jim Holloway's art helped spark gamers' imaginations for decades, and he leaves a lasting legacy. Our condolences go to his family and friends—Chaosium Inc.
  18. Looking forward to this new release using the BRP OGL: https://twitter.com/KabouterRPG/status/1276915585486651396
  19. Please post any proposed corrections in this thread.
  20. I can see some Healers of Arroin deploying sorcery as a mechanistic-deterministic, strictly non-divine, non-numinous process, as an extension of their skill-based practise.
  21. There's an unofficial branch of that popular troll eatery in Casino Town, opens at dusk. Thunderbreath's offers the crude but entertaining after-dinner betting game from the Shadow Plateau, “Pull my Finger” (a real favourite of Harrek the Berserk when he visited in 1618).
  22. Just like many tik-tok teens all over the RW are avid followers of K-Pop, lots of youngsters across the Lunar Empire are, in effect, devoted and passionate lay members of the cults of Glamour and Jar Eel.
