Episode 509: Charismatic Megafauna of Food

August 12th, 2022 | Robin

In the Gaming Hut we demonstrate how to dovetail player-created character hooks into your scenario, as Ken proposes a Freaking Weird Moment for his This is Normal Now character and Robin weaves it into a trio of mystery premises.

The Culture Hut uncovers a Dreamhound of Chicago, 30s surrealist painter Gertrude Abercrombie.

Then we duck into the Food Hut to make a list of defunct food products we might just use Ken’s Time Machine to stock up on.

Our final stop takes us to the Eliptony Hut, as we review the contents of a ghost hunter’s kit, starting with the copious suggestions in Peter Underwood’s Ghost Hunters Guide.

    Interesting that the US had Marathons that were different from the UK Marathons, which were Snickers (and have now been rebranded as such, for the benefit of globalisation, and horror of everyone who considers the Mars corporation is stealing their childhood)

  2. Wikipedia says that the US Marathon had some similarities to the UK Curly Wurly. In fact the article claims the US Marathon was a rip off of Cadbury’s Curly Wurly. The UK version is chewy toffee in long intertwined strands covered with chocolate.

    The Curly Wurly is still around, it seems, Ken should try one when he comes to Dragonmeet.
