Ken and Robin Live in Toronto

FanExpo Canada rolls out this weekend at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. Robin will be joined this year on his home turf by his fellow Pelgranista Kenneth Hite. Their various appearances include a special live episode of Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff. Gather up your questions and catch them in the flesh at 3:45 […]

Call of Chicago: Re-skinning, Genre-Drifting, and Triskaidekasizing

One of the chiefest joys of roleplaying is the joy of taking an iconic hero or monster and re-skinning it in the light of your own campaign. I’ve put Frankenstein’s monster on stage in two or three games, recast Batman as a people’s antihero in an alternate Soviet Union, and made demigods of Aaron Burr […]

Dracula Unredacted

Take your players on the greatest vampire hunt in history—more than a hundred years in the making.   Dracula is not a novel. It’s the censored version of Bram Stoker’s after-action report of the failed British Intelligence attempt to recruit and control the perfect asset — the ultimate weapon — Count Dracula. Kenneth Hite and […]

The Call of Chicago: Framing, Drilling, Carnacking

As I begin planning future Ken Writes About Stuff pieces, a number of solid GUMSHOE campaign frames occur to me. Longer than the frames in the corebooks, but not super complex, such settings make good KWAS PDFs. They might not support a whole book (although then again they might, if sales of the basic PDF […]

2013 World Night’s Black Agents Championship at DEXCON 16

CONFIDENTIAL//SI-NBA//ORCON We have learned that last year’s operation in Morristown, New Jersey failed to end the vampire threat. Kenneth Hite and John Adamus urgently request assistance at DEXCON 16 from 10:00AM – 6:00PM, Saturday, July 6, 2013 to counter yet another assault by the undead… …or to participate in it. The Operation: The 2013 World Night’s Black […]

The Call of Chicago: Expediting, Ordering, Inquiring

I gotta say, it’s a good thing I already wrote GUMSHOE rules for expeditions. Because now I’m not surprised when everything takes longer and seems harder than it did when we planned this thing. Mythos Expeditions has, like its namesake, run into its share of excitement along the way. Promising paths had to be neglected, […]

Bookhounds of London – London Rumours

Player handouts for Bookhounds of London These rumours are player knowledge: the sorts of things eager Book-Hounds are likely to hear as they wander the streets, drink a pint in the pubs, and gossip with their cronies and rivals. Their degree of truth, and their potential for danger and profit, remain in the Keeper’s hands […]

The Call of Chicago: Exploding, Experimenting, Expediting

Pop quiz, hotshot: a mysterious figure tosses a grenade at you. How much damage do you take? In GUMSHOE, it depends on who’s throwing the grenade. A cultist of Hastur? Point-blank grenade damage in Trail of Cthulhu is +3. Right there, one table, look it up, bang. Or rather, boom. A vampiric henchman, or a […]

The Unbourne Identity

From the keyboard of Kenneth Hite… For those of you who have somehow been occupying yourselves with other pursuits than my game design career, perhaps I should mention that a pre-order edition of my vampire spy thriller RPG Night’s Black Agents is available now from Pelgrane Press. More on that below, where the horrid, horrid […]

The Dracula Dossier

The Dracula Dossier is an epic improvised campaign for the Night’s Black Agents RPG. Do your Agents have what it takes to face the Lord of the Undead himself? The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the demon shall cry to his fellow; Lilith also shall rest […]
