Earthquakes, Old Parr, and Dracula’s Guest

(Esteemed KARTAS patreon-backer Loius Sylvester asked some questions about The Dracula Dossier, and they were marginally more my wheelhouse than Ken’s, so…) I have been reading Dracula Unredacted alongside Klinger’s New Annotated Dracula and I am about halfway through both books. I have a few questions. 1) The dates in Unredacted do not match the Annotated. In […]

New Legacies (4) – the Other Legacies

The Dracula Dossier Director’s Handbook (DH) covers the present-day Legacies of the main members of the Crew of Light – Billie Harker, Tabitha Holmwood, Thad Morris and the rest, the descendants of the original group who battled Dracula. However, Dracula Unredacted reveals the existence of several other members of this fellowship who, for reasons sinister […]

Border Dweller

A foe for The Esoterrorists / Fear Itself Border Dwellers break through from the Outer Dark into our reality after scenting the psychic spoor of groups in conflict. The dispute that draws them could be between adjacent communities, or between factions in a single town. A Border Dweller can turn any collective resentment into the […]

Murder by Checklist in the Yellow King RPG

Following on from this article – the advice to use Investigative Abilities as a checklist for an adventure applies doubly to Yellow King games. Unlike, say, Night’s Black Agents or Esoterrorists, where the player characters are highly competent and well-rounded investigators, Yellow King characters tend to be unusually narrow in their range of backgrounds, especially […]

The Actualizer

A foe for The Esoterrorists / Fear Itself The metamorphic Outer Dark entity known as the Actualizer crosses over into our realm during the first of several life stages. It lodges itself in a human host, who it impels to commit a series of murders. With each slaying it gains psychic energy it will eventually […]

The Forbidden Archive of Canadian Art

Few suspect that the McMichael Gallery of Canadian Art, nestled in formerly bucolic, now exurban, Kleinburg Ontario, houses a forbidden eldritch wing that can be entered only when the stars are right. I myself had no idea until an anonymous informant slipped me these electronic images. Having shared them previously on social media, with only […]

The Plain People of Gaming: Fruit of a Poison Tree

It’s been some time since the Poison Tree campaign was announced, even by the sometimes leisurely standards of Pelgrane. It’s currently on my desk undergoing development and additional writing. The core concept of the campaign is unchanged from those early articles – a series of connected adventures across the generations, from 1650 to the present […]

New Legacies (2)

(My apologies for the long delay between installments. I’d intended to post this and the other pieces in the series in early 2020. I wonder what could possibly have distracted me in, oh, say around March of that year.) The Dracula Dossier Director’s Handbook (DH) covers the present-day Legacies of the main members of the […]

Asteroid Pirates

When your Ashen Stars characters next seek a person, piece of information, or illicit technology, place the object of their search in the fleet of the Asteroid Pirates. These rough-edged survivors of the post-War Bleed seek their fortunes in ships whose hulls are part alloy, part hollowed-out microplanetoid. Arrayed together, aided by sophisticated wavelength spoofers, […]
