Episode 176: Shut Up, Fungus

February 5th, 2016 | Robin

Get your chlorophyll on as we enter a vine-choked version of the Gaming Hut to riff an alien species that feeds via photosynthesis.

Ken gets you started on your collection of books about maps in a bibliographic  Cartography Hut.

It’s been a while since Ask Ken and Robin had a lightning round, so let’s have a lightning round.

Then the Eliptony Hut blows up real good with a look at the Martian nuclear armageddon theory.


Ken and Robin have oft been accused of being cards. Well, we can deny it no longer. We have become super-limited promo cards for Murder of Crows, Atlas Games’ fast-paced card game of murder and the macabre, for two to five players in the mood for something a little morbid. It’s Edward Gorey meets Caligari, by way of Edgar Allan Poe. Wait a minute, what does that graphic say? I’m not so sure about this… Ken fans who did not partake of the Kickstarter can now sink their fangs into the general release of the Dracula Dossier from Pelgrane Press, consisting of the Director’s Handbook and Dracula Unredacted. You say that’s still not enough Ken for you? Very well, my friend. His brilliant pieces on parasitic gaming, alternate Newtons, Dacian werewolves and more now lurk among the sparkling bounty of The Best of FENIX Volumes 1-3, from returning sponsors Askfageln. Yes, it’s Sweden’s favorite RPG magazine, now beautifully collected. Warning: not in Swedish. In a move that surely violates someone’s security clearance, this episode is also brought to you by our friends at Arc Dream Publishing. The Kickstarter for Delta Green: the Roleplaying Game has come to an end, but don’t let that stop you from indulging your fever for this classic game, or that pinnacle of the Cthulhu game zine world, The Unspeakable Oath.

  1. re: Martian nuclear armageddon – that Quatermass RPG license is going begging, guys…

    I’d run Ken’s Hellenic Runequest campaign in an instant.

  3. Rob Dean says:

    I don’t know if I’d find players to run the Hellenistic adventures, butI’d buy it on sight.

    The cartography book discussion left me wondering if you guys had ever done an “essential bookshelf” or desert island books segment?

  4. […] and Robin Talk(ed) About Stuff, such as a hypothetical Martian nuclear war, MI5 jerk Maxwell Knight, Ted Cruz’s inexplicable draw on Ken, & the supposed Neanderthal […]
