    Totally works for me. I am open minded when it comes to all sorts of Lovecraftian stuff, always brought me more good than ill, and I do agree those elements you cited totally fit the mythos.

    On my "to read" list for sure...

  • While working on the Dark Era I'm writing I wrote a bunch of stuff about the Primordial Dream. They're meant to be used in the context of the Era but hey, toolbox approach. If you like them there's nothing that stops you for using one or more of those, even if they might be less incisive. Thought I might share those here as well, all things considered.

    The post where I wrote those is this one, and there's more by scrolling below

  • Second part of the "Anomalies of the Primordial Dream" chapter. See above for introduction.

    They had been following him for...how long? A week? A month? A life? Martin lost any kind of perception of time long ago. He could not remember the last time he slept. He could not allow himself to do that, he had to run.To rest was a luxury he could not afford. He did not really remember what he was fleeing from, to be honest, but he was sure his life depended on it. Those Martin met tried to stop him sometimes but most of them looked at him and understood, starting to run for...

  • Ok, the Anomalies of the Primordial Dream chapter is done. I'm posting it here in two separate posts since it's not exactly short. Truly looking forward to your feedback about it. There's no extraordinary mechanic behind it, just a combination of elements. If you look at them as a whole picture you'll easily see what kind of story hooks and impact the Primordial Dream can provide in a Congo Free State game. Taken singularly nothing stands out, but they do work together. (Not saying it's perfect or immune from criticism, of course)

  • Storytelling Sidereals: what to do and what not to do?

    Lurking around the forum in the last few weeks I read several posts about Sidereals that reminded me why they are probably my favorite splat and actually made me want to run Exalted and giving a shot at a small Sidereal game. A brief campaign, nothing too big, just to have some fun. I'm speaking about 2nd Edition Sidereals, since those are the books I currently have.

    Since my experience at running Exalted games is admittedly very limited, I'm writing this post looking for any suggestion whatsoever I could use to prepare and make this sort of chronicle work. Either from a mechanical...

  • Got in because of the title (hey, that book was great), remained because of the content. This has been a truly enjoyable read. I'll keep following for sure

  • Guess so. This thread was meant to include Primordial Dream stuff, though I'm totally fine with it becoming the "Beast Homebrew". Still, I think trying to keep it clear and organized in entries without many discussions between each other is probably for the best...

    I'll probably go for number 2, seems like a good idea. And thanks for the books suggestions. I was already interested in the Hadmaid's Tale so hearing it's good might convince me picking it up while Winter Tide is a lovecraftian book that totally flew under my radar (which is pretty good when it comes to that) and definitely got my attention...

    I was satisfied for today but I stumbled upon this. I imagine it might be a Hero inside a Lair regretting his life choices. Plus creepy Horror

    Sorry about that. I dread the day we'll have to do that with our dog, I can only imagine going through the real deal

    Creative burnout. When you have to write, have time to write, know what to write but every word you lay on paper looks like shit and after a some minutes of trying you just can't go further.

    I'm in the middle of that and don't see myself getting out of it soon. Hate it.

  • Indeed. Their instinct might tell them otherwise but there's nothing that stop such alliance from happening. Things might be tense and there's plenty of attrition against it, but it's part of the fun

  • Well, I do use Tilts, at least when it comes to combat.

    Since we have rules for the plague though, and the Sleeping Sickness is another disease which calls for some rule tweaking, I wrote this. But yeah, Tilts are supposed to represent the disease during direct conflict, as usual...

  • Made rules for a disease, could use feedback.

    Hello everyone, I just wrote the rules for the Sleeping Sickness disease and, as the title said, I'd like to have some feedback. I can't get if the mechanics work as they should, whether it's too slow, too fast and stuff like that. Never played much with the disease mechanics and this is the first time I write one, so I'd rather post it here and get some criticism. Also, I've made this for a work that involves Beasts and added special rules for them and other supernaturals below; could use feedback on that as well.


    I post the entire thing for context and quick informations

  • It's the kind of movie I watch when I have nothing better else to do and I'm in the mood for supernatural stuff. It's a good movie indeed. Well, The Frighteners too, but I already mentioned that one....

  • Count this as another vote for Paranorman. I don't want to spoiler, but there's a lot to get from that movie, to the point basing a small chronicle on it takes basically no effort.

    I especially like how the size of trouble the protagonist faces ramps up from "Sin-Eater's daily business" to "the kind of catastrophic event that fit, both in scale and theme, the climax of a Geist game"
