    replied to Poll: Favorite 1e kiths?
    My favorites were Skitterskulk, Venombite, Water-Dweller and Corpsegrinder. Of the mythical ones, I'm fond of Pishacha and Gremlin.

  • I'm not exactly the best judge on this, since I'd consider using Hosts even in a game about realistic diplomatic intrigue set in 17th century Europe, but, jokes aside, I agree.

    I know for certain that they do wonders in Hunter.

    Edit: Also, please give us the Snakes. Please!...

    replied to Inspirational Images For Beast
    This one is something a bit different, a short poem that I feel has plenty to offer to Beast. I originally found it almost two years ago and I keep going back to it regularly.

    Anyways, a bunch of days ago I've found it in picture form around the web and figured I might as well share it here.

    I was already sold on They From Beneath The Sea! but, after the latest preview, I can say I have the money for the Kickstarter here, waiting to get spent.

    That game just looks so fino, even more so if you happen to be a movie and horror sci-fi geek as I am

  • There's some implications, ideas and in-character perspectives that talk about what happens to a dead Beast and a Horror that survives her. Enough to speculate on the implications of mythic cycles and if there's a connection between all those who inherit the same Horror.

    It pretty much depends on you, but the option is there. Personally, I go for "some do, some don't and other immortals who recognize your Horror might think you're an ancient Beast reborn or just hold you accountable for what your ancestors did (whether they're right or not is not a question with only an answer)"...

  • That's something I'm definitely going to talk more about, in a shape or the other, but for now I'll say that's owes a lot to the works of a great author and literature expert, Roberto Calasso.

    Many of his works talks about the relation between myths and culture. That specific idea of mine is related to the notion that hero cannot exist without a monster being there first and owes its power to it. I read his works in the original language, but found a short translated quote that shows it well.



    I have lots of thoughts about monsters, heroes, legends and ideas...

  • I really, really don't like the kind of horror and trauma Goblin Slayer goes for. Don't like it in Fantasy, don't like it in Horror, don't like it in RPGs and in comics, don't like it in general. I know that's a thing that does not bother some people as it does for me and there are obvious reasons for it to exist in a horror context but hell, I can't help it.

    It was tough to get through it in Berserk and Goblin Slayer is even worse on that side. Way worse, possibly because Berserk's world is almost always bleak and dark while Goblin Slayer's is not.

    The fact I kept on...

  • Hehe, they might not be canon but I like them too much to not carry them along.

    And thanks!...

  • Oh, that was not harsh at all, don't worry. You raise genuinely legitimate points.

    I started this way because I think it's a good introduction, in the sense that's indeed rather orthodox and not too wild. An old document to get in the right mood and glimpse something of what's to come. The first part is more of a build-up that I admit does not offer any remarkable inspiration, more of a service to the core and known ideas, but the part that I intended to be the interesting one is the latter.

    The ideas and hints you mention are stuff I'm going to explore in the future,...

  • The Cradle of Nightmares: Signs of the Dark Mother

    Some time ago I mentioned the idea of a thread of fake texts and fictions about the Dark Mother, something along the lines of the Clanbooks or Signs of the Moon (I love those books), to give me something chill to write during my spare time. Here we are.

    Entries will vary wildly, I'm pretty much throwing ideas at the wall to see what sticks, not to mention it's a thing to do when there's no more urgent stuff to deal with, but I really hope you'll enjoy these. I'm kinda testing myself here, so criticism is welcome. In any case, practice is practice and that never hurts, especially now....

    Black Klansman does not pull any punches. I turned from a "cool movie, still relevant" into "holy shit he went there" in a matter of two minutes.

    Palpable tension then all the theater left in silence. I'm not always a fan of Spike Lee, but this one was powerful

  • No idea! The cool thing with CoD is that you can do a dozen different versions of something and still have room for more. The Changeling one was good and I definitely can see it as a Geist-related something as LostLight says.

    As for me, I'm still thinking about it. I like to throw curveballs when doing this sort of stuff, it tends to be more entertaining, but I have no plans yet...

  • Considering I did a CoD version Santa and Krampus this Christmas and Easter Bunny this Easter, I might as well do one of those and post it for Halloween

    replied to You Know What I Hate MK I
    Ok, I'll rant and try to have some fun.

    The thing is, I grew up with Columbus not only as a national hero, but even one that's closer to me than that. I'll explain.

    I live in a small town near Genoa, which is Columbus' town, in the Italian region called Liguria. We have a reputation for not only being rather fierce (to be honest, lots of regions have that) but also for being grumpy, prideful and always angrily complaining about something. The kind of people that live of tourism but can't stand the tourists and tend to give outsiders the impression they're allowed to pass...

    replied to You Know What I Hate MK I
    Anyone interested in a rant about Columbus made by someone who grew up 50 minutes away from the guy's birthplace?

    Because I hate what happens when the topic of being proud of him comes up around here and I have to tiptoe around historical truths to not get labeled as iconoclast and shamed like it just happened

    So I feel like speaking without filters about the conflicted relationship you're bound to develop with Columbus if you live where I do but also know enough about the facts.

    Just an angry Italian perspective on the whole Columbus day thing, if people...

    replied to Games Discussion/What Are You Playing?
    Go for it. I also see myself as a Playstation guy and I chew horror everyday, but the reliable things that are granted to cheer my up, no matter how bleak the day has been, are Kirby, Pokémon and getting into a village (or camp) to chat with nice animal inhabitants.

    "Happy" games make things better, in their little, humble way....
