Join us in the Gaming Hut to assist Patreon backer Dustyn Mincey with his difficulty in sticking with a single game, when there are so many awesome games in the world.

Then Ken and/or Robin Talk To Someone Else, specifically designer extraordinaire Steve Kenson.

Finally it’s again time to vicariously caress the covers of various tomes as Ken’s Bookshelf gloats over the treasures looted from Powell’s Books in Portland.

Ken’s latest roleplaying game, The Fall of Delta Green, is now available in print or PDF or both from Pelgrane Press. 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.

    I bought “Decatur’s Bold and Daring Act” from Amazon based on your comments. My copy was dirt cheap, from a 3rd seller. My wife and I always enjoy Ken’s book haul comments.
