I think I might have played the original Ravenloft module a little bit- but it was like 24 years ago when I would have been 9 or 10 so I don't remember much.
Last year, I ran Brandon Hodge's awesome "Feast at Ravenmoor" adventure while serving up bratwurst and homemade apple strudel.
This year, I think I want to run Nic Logue's "Hangman's Noose" as that looks like a really fun, different kind of adventure.

Ha! I know exactly what you are saying. I had a business trip in Leesburg, VA and it was literally the choice between Bud and its equivalents or Yeungling. I feel the same way- it's drinkable but not my first choice. My relatives in MA get all excited over it like the other people I know get excited for Shiner Bock (which at $17.50 for a 12 pack isn't going to be on my list any time soon).
For my bday, I had Clown Shoe's "Ride the Lion." The label depicts a woman, dressed up like she's in Braveheart riding the lion. It's brewed in bourbon barrels and well...it tasted like whiskey. And at almost 12%, it's pretty potent.
Everyone keeps telling me about Shiner Bock so I bought a 12 pack of that when I finally saw it at the local grocery store. Pretty good, but rather expensive. I am enjoying that my usual weekly grocery store is carrying some German beers finally and cheaper than the store I usually have to go to find them.
I just recently learned about Thomas Ligotti due to the controversy surrounding allegations that True Detective plagiarized some of his work.
However, that aside, I picked up his first collection Songs of a Dead Reader yesterday.
1. Are you a fan of his work?
Just reading the very first story in the collection I bought, I can see why people say he sometimes has a Lovecraft vibe to his work.
A psychologist is telling his wife about a crazy patient, John Doe, who claims to have a thousand names, lived thousands of years, and describes himself from being from the star. At the end, he kidnaps the doctor's daughter, leaving behind her stuffed animal with its stuffing hanging out in an allusion to Nyarlothotep
Yes, please ship it if it's ready to go and thank you. LoftP books are rather tricky to track down. Anyways, it was nice to meet you at PaizoCon (we were talking about painting minis early Saturday morning over by the Dungeon Delve with Adam. I was rambling, I think, about my Kingmaker game- early morning+jet lag...).
07/30- After Sunday's discussion of the RPG, The Last One, and the interesting storytelling mechanics it uses, today over at [url=https://www.facebook.com/Vathak?ref=hl]Shadows over Vathak[/i], I spin that discussion into a talk about incorporating new/alternative game mechanics to tell the story you want to tell.
I just got my Kickstarter book today (for the Savage Worlds system) and it looks amazing. The art is fantastic, some of the best I've seen in a long time with some great full page art (which you don't see too often anymore). I imagine that the Pathfinder version will look as equally fantastic. I'm quite impressed.
Good point. I'm actually very susceptible to buying beers with dragons on the label and if you're in a good store, it's surprising how many beers have dragons on the label.
This was my first time at PaizoCon and despite spend 4 hours on the tarmac in Boston before a 6 hour flight, I had a great time. I've heard how it's much "bigger" now but it still felt like it had a very intimate feel to it where you could actually engage the Paizo employees in a real conversation vs. the frentic pace of GenCon with its mobs of people (still a great con, though). I'm definitely looking forward to future PaizoCons and hanging out again with all the wonderful people I met there. Great job, everyone!
I have not but I have relatives in Burlington that I never had a reason to visit until now.
James, it was great to meet you at PaizoCon this year. I really enjoyed the "Horror in RPGs" seminar Wes, Ryan, and you hosted.
Can you please tell me what the name of that movie was that you talked about? You described it as looking like a movie that was made in the 80s but had modern day special effects. In between the general excitement of the con and trying to remember all of Ryan's and Wes's suggestions, I'm afraid I forgot its name. Thank you!
At home, I have some Shipyard Summerale in a can. I'm enjoying it more than the Sam Adam's one. I also bought Shipyard Melonhead. Shipyard's pumpkin beer is called Pumpkinhead, so it uses a similiar image (Headless Horseman except with Melonhead, it's a watermelon). It's...interesting...one or two on a hot day. If watermelon isn't a fruit you enjoy, I would not recommend it.
At PaizoCon, I was drinking Fat Tire. Not sure which one- but I suspect it was their Amber Ale. Anyway, it was a good, easy to drink beer. They had a local one on tap, forgot what it was called- very cloudy and almost chewy. Fat Tire was smoother so I went with that.
Haven't had that in awhile, but yes, that is good, good stuff. I bought a bunch of different chocolate stouts a few years ago in the hopes of doing a chocolate stout taste test with my friends but never got around to planning it.
I might have mentioned this before, but if you see it- avoid Shipyard (brewery out of Maine) Mint Chocolate Stout. They make good beers but that one just tasted like mouthwash.
