Spending a not-so-lazy afternoon working on my campaign for . The Heroes of Hope are battling their way through corrupt Hool Wastes, fighting demons, undead, and worse.

Naturally, I need to find a few more enemies for them to fight. Good thing I brought a few books...

@nukehavoc No doubt this is the time that @vandermore will propose buying yet another cool monster book he found...

Finally ... #Mothership

Our unboxing of the sci-fi horror RPG's deluxe edition is up on YouTube, and yes, it was worth the wait. #CreatureFeature #Horror #ttrpg #rpg

Ever since watching #Fallout on Amazon Prime, we've had "Crawl Out Through the Fallout" by Sheldon Allman stuck in our collective heads.

And if you didn't before ... it's stuck there now.

You're welcome.

Just a nice, typical, underground science lab. No killer laser beams or brain-crippling sonic projectors here... #Cyberpunk #CyberpunkRED

S3E32 Cyberpunk RED Recap and Review

Our Cyberpunk RED Recap episode looks at the first season of our actual play campaign. We talk about our favorite moments, how the characters grew, reversals we didn't see coming (or did, and loved anyway) and more. Need to know who’s who? Check out the Cyberpunk RED campaign page.

Running the ALIEN RPG is on Ken's list of "Four RPGs I will run in 2023" (for the curious, the others were Mutant Crawl Classics, Mothership, and Cyberpunk RED).

Ken ran the other three, but ALIEN is still unplayed. He has the three cinema boxed sets, but those scenarios are pretty hefty.

He's looking for something that's newbie friendly and that he could run in 2-3 hours (likely online).

Any recommendations for a one shot?

As Ken delves deeper into computer-assisted mapmaking with tools like #TaleSpire and #Incarnate, he's finding he needs something the old one-button crowd on the Mac never dreamed off:

A three-button mouse (with a scroll wheel).

Recommendations for a Mac-friendly multi-button mouse? He's open to having even more than three buttons though that seems ... excessive.

For a frame of reference ... this is Ken's current mouse: An ancient (and USB corded) Microsoft Intellimouse circa ... 2010?

S3E31 Sundered Horizons – Season Look Back

Join us for a lookback at our Savage Worlds-powered actual play campaign, Sundered Horizons!

Let's talk traps! (because Ken's got a Knights of the Dinner Table column to do and NOT because he's looking to populate his next RPG adventure with new and exciting ways to threaten/kill his PCs...).

What are your favorite books, resources, and websites for fantasy, modern, and sci-fi traps?

Star Trek Adventures remains on Ken's RPG Bucket List. Running a #LowerDecks session could be a great way of crossing it off that list... https://modiphius.us/products/star-trek-adventures-star-trek-lower-decks-campaign-guide

Ken is also up way too early. Hopefully he gets some sleep before he accidentally spills something in the labs.

It is so hard to replace cleanup crew.
