!AVAST!

atamajakki:

Historical settings that I currently have as seeds in a Google Doc that I may or may not eventually develop:

  • Islamic Golden Age Changeling: the Lost
  • Renaissance Italy Demon: the Descent
  • Spanish Conquest of the New World Hunter: the Vigil
  • Golden Age of Piracy Geist: the Sin-Eaters
  • Seven Year’s War (Canada) Vampire: the Requiem
  • French Revolution Vampire: the Requiem
  • Meiji Restoration Werewolf: the Forsaken
  • WW2 (North Africa) Mummy: the Curse
  • 1950s America Promethean: the Created

I still need a Mage setting and really wish I knew enough about China to do a setting set there; a Mongol setting would also be super cool. A Victorian setting feels nearly mandatory for something. On the plus side, nothing medieval!

I’ve been thinking for a long time that the Angkor Civilization for Mage: The Awakening would be a really interesting setting.  It is a place where devaraja (godkings) ruled courts where brahmin priests used Sanskrit texts and chants in religious ceremonies and royal palaces were designed to replicate the godly city on Mount Meru.

That alone has the Silver Ladder written all over it. 

This Newsweek article titled Driving While Black in Ferguson provides context to what has happened in Ferguson and why it is not just about Michael Brown. It turns out that the cops there aren’t police, but economic predators:

Also, this is not just a Ferguson, MO problem. Municipalities across the nation have turned to making minor offenses into programs that extract wealth from the already impoverished. They levy fines that cannot be paid, and then arrest people for failure to pay fines, which incurs further fines, ad infinitum.

An Important Safety Tip!

Mark Steuer <steuerm@nichols.com> recounts this tale:

Many years ago (back when we all were still playing D & D), I ran a game where I pitted two groups against each other.

Several members of Group One came up with the idea of luring Group Two…


I absolutely love this story.  I love it when players come up with something original and diabolical. 

Also, I’ve always wanted to run a game where two player parties are battling against each other.
