Mini-review of Floating Oasis of the Ascended God

The good folks at the blog King Archie’s Realm have posted a mini-review of Floating Oasis of the Ascended God. If you recall, Floating Oasis was an original adventure I wrote to be included as the bonus adventure for the 2nd printing of Harley Stroh’s Bride of the Black Manse. I’m never quite sure how much activity these adventures get in the wild, so it’s nice to see that it got some table-time. The review is pretty short so I’ll just include it here: Our second game that night, after inserting cider and PBR,...

In my MCC adventure Children of the Fallen Sun, there is a location where the PCs can interact with The Nilspace Drive: This particular goodie was inspired by The Man Himself: Mr. Gary Gygax. There is a brief line in...

Introducing the Black Ink Red Film podcast

Hello Thick Skullers! I’m pleased the Black Ink Red Film Podcast , a new collaboration between myself and my friend Stephen E. Each month the two of us (and sometimes a guest) will discuss one of our favorite horror/sci-fi novels and its movie adaptation. We’ll discuss what made the novel memorable, and then follow that up with how the filmmakers kept or fundamentally changed the narrative during its film adaptation. We’ll then talk about any lasting impressions the novel and/or movie have left on popular culture. Season one we’ll be...
