Episode 352: We’ve Still Got that Other Folder

July 12th, 2019 | Robin

The Gaming Hut starts us strong as we look for ways to avoid stock scenario openings.

In the Culture Hut we examine the way critical terms lose their meaning when they penetrate popular consciousness.

Ask Ken and Robin satisfies Mrs. Obed Marsh’s need to know how to run The Fall of Delta Green with 60s radical PCs.

Then the Consulting Occultist calls for order in the court as we hear the confession of a Livonian werewolf.

Be cute! Be cunning! Be fierce! Most of all, be someone backing the Kickstarter for Atlas Games’ Magical Kitties, the roleplaying game of supernatural felines. Suitable for play with young childrens, it pits its four-footed heroes against robots, witches and more!

Journey to the head-spinning chaos of the late 1960s, back when everyone’s favorite anti-Cthulhu special ops agency hadn’t gone rogue yet, for this pulse-pounding GUMSHOE game of war, covert action, and Mythos horror.
