Delta Green: Mother of Dust

    Something is happening in the small town of Boise City, Oklahoma.  Livestock and people are becoming sick and no cure can be found.  Dust storms are becoming more frequent, and there is the odd sightings of a mysterious old woman with a dog at her side in the country side.  Delta Green has tasked with Marco Degallo and Gracie Hart to investigate a possible vector, and to contain the illness by all means possible.  Inspiration for this homebrewed setting is from the Anomaly Creepypasta story Charlie Noonan's Last Interview.  Delta Green is a Roleplaying system that takes place in the Cthulhu Mythos universe, where the organization was born out of the raid on Innsmouth, Massachusetts in 1928.  Delta Green agents have been fighting against the mythos since that time and has undergone multiple reorganizations over the years, sometimes staying in the light, sometimes being an illegal conspiracy.  Delta Green is published by Arc Dream.

Yarrrrr thar be demons!

    Better Angels by Arc Dream Publishing is a Role Playing Game using the one roll engine.  I've listened to some actual plays using this system, and thought of a setting that would be interesting to play around in.  We join Celesta, Travis, and Trista as Elsa, Rupert, and Thursday during the 1700's in the Caribbean.  An unfortunate twist of fate brings about an unexpected change in their lives.  Now burdened with supernatural powers they set about trying to understand why they were cursed with the demon's touch.  This is the first episode and first session for playing Better Angels, so we will and do get things wrong.  We do not know nautical terms, so there's that.  Also, first session with the rules so we do get some of the rules wrong which are corrected in the next session.

Oh the humanity!

    Cards against Humanity...oh jeez.  This game...wow this game is a party game for your friends who know you at your best.  When Trista was in town we played a lot of games, and there were good times to be had.  This was one of the games we played.  Cards against Humanity is a 3-multiple individuals card game along the line of Apples to Apples.  A player starts by drawing a black card which has a phrase that usually has a fill in the blank spot.  The other players look at their hand of seven cards and figure out which one of their cards is the "best" ...by best I mean usually awfully terrible.  Sit down with us as we play Cards against Humanity!  Forewarning for listeners, this goes raunchy.
