Episode 329: The Looming Party

February 1st, 2019 | Robin

The Gaming Hut goes retro goth cartoony as Patreon backer Arthur invites us to envision an Edward Gorey RPG.

In the Crime Blotter we look at Los Caballeros Templarios, the drug cartel that borrows the branding of the Knights Templar.

The Cinema Hut finds us mulling historical inaccuracy in movies. When do we roll with it, and when do we bust out the well actuallys?

Finally, at the behest of backer Wayne Rossi, we turn to the Consulting Occultist for the mystical skinny on Carlos Castaneda.

    There actually is a sort of unofficial Edward Gorey RPG, and it was indeed Kickstarted. It’s called Bedlam Hall, and it’s from the people who did the Spirit of ’77 RPG that riffs on 70s exploitation cinema, both games using the Powered by the Apocalypse system as a basis. I backed on the strength of their previous work but have yet to have a chance to play it. The fine folks at RPPR did an actual play episode with it, though, and it was quite entertaining.

    I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced to your post.
    They’re really convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are too quick for newbies. Could
    you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
