The Mandalorian main cast

The principal cast for the new Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian has been announced and... if he isn’t voicing a CG alien or something, in a year or so we could have a Werner Herzog action figure.

And now of course I’m imagining a Lord of the Sith with monologues based on Herzog.

“I believe the common denominator of the Universe is not harmony, but chaos, hostility and murder.”

“Our civilization is like a thin layer of ice upon a deep ocean of chaos and darkness.”

“We had mutual respect for each other, even as we both planned each other’s murder.”

Children Of The Nameless

The Christmas What Now?

Another Cameo Film Quiz Christmas special, another final round of guessing the titles of bizarre Christmas TV movies. The fact that the one about someone marrying Santa’s kid isn’t called Claus In-Laws is a travesty, quite frankly.

Also this year... The Christmas Dragon.

What the Hell.

Bite Me: Rose Bailey's guide to Vampire

Bite Me, a writing bible for Vampire: The Requiem, now at Storytellers Vault.

Our legend goes on

Jamie (Andy in TWH) just introduced me as the GM of that game. Given that it ended in 2009, I wonder what he’s been telling people...

Update: apparently it came up in conversation about TPO Milli.

Bruce Baugh with Trinity ideas

Beaming with pride at kind words from Bruce Baugh over the Trinity release.

And now a series hook, about acquirers of rare antiquities in the present and post-chaos seekers after lost things in the Aeon future.

And an RPG.net thread looking at the mechanics.

Trinity Incoming

The advance PDF of the Trinity Continuum rulebook is out to backers.

It is so weird to see my layout suggestions turned into actual layout.

But I could get used to it.

Avengers: End Game

The first trailer, and things look grim...
