- 1-2-3 Cthulhu! is
self-proclaimed “nerdy girl” Sonja's simplified system
for playing Call of Cthulhu. It's White Wolf inspired but much
simpler than Vampire, has a character sheet and is eminently
Aedificium Living History in
England, 1190 A.D. is a roleplaying resource for medieval gaming
that's also good enough for real historians. It's by Christopher
Golden although I'm pretty sure that's not the guy who wrote Ghosts
of Albion with Amber Benson.
Subway Tunnels is Shaun Dufour's collection of eerily evocative
photographs of the Boston underground. He also does power plants,
railways, mills and factories and other places that you might like
to use in your game of Unknown Armies or Buffy. There's also a nice
collection of links to other such sites, some of which have already
been mentioned in previous issues of this zine. I just love this
kind of thing!
Magazine Rack is exactly what is says on the tin: a collection
of magazines for d20 games. They also link to us which proves their
discernment so I'm returning the compliment.
Dirty 30s! I love
pulp. It's the perfect genre for exciting but still somewhat gritty
gaming. Albeit strategically placed grit to subtly enhance the
glamour of the gals or the spunk of the gents. We've just been
introduced to Kath
& Kim in the UK so “Hunk of Spunk” is getting a
fair bit of mileage. I don't know what it means in Brisbane but it
definitely doesn't mean that in London.
H.P. Lovecraft FR is a
French Lovecraft website. It's under maintenance at the moment but
the old site is still up and there's plenty of cthulhu-tastique
material and even much of the “Roi en Jaune”, or “King
in Yellow” to you and me. I've got an English translation of
this famous play but you should really read it in the original
World of Necromerica is a strange one. It's a website, in
French, with alternative superheroes such as Feng, the Chinese
Flash, or Golem, the Polish Hulk. And what's more, each is
illustrated with a microhero,
those superhero avatars.
are you cleared for the Delta Green wiki? This is a repository of
ideas gleaned from the DG mailing list and is chock full of creepy
and nasty things with which to scare your players
these gaming wikis are getting everywhere these days, this one
belongs to Doyce Alan Testerman. He has put no little effort into
populating it and so it's quite succesful. He's got resources for
over a dozen games, mostly indie, including Fudge, Capes and the
Shadow of Yesterday and the game I'm currently in love with Dogs
in the Vineyard.
Exploration WebRing hub has links to 208 sites from people who
like to crawl around abandoned buildings, collapsed subway tunnels,
fire-gutted hospitals and asylums.
is a wacky place where you can Explore with us lost civilizations,
ancient ruins, sacred writings, unexplained artifacts, science
mysteries, and "alternative" theories.
Utopies is another site
for the French speakers. It's a great pdf zine for historical
gaming. Issue #1 was called Jack's Century and the current issue #2
is Medieval Chronicles. Both are stuffed to the gills with over 25MB
of period information.
And finally, this is the Orgins special issue so in case we never
feature again, here's our nomination
