The supernatural awkward pubescent story: a sub-genre of speculative fiction    Articles  (Other Gaming)   (Gaming - Genre)

As gamers we have done the western with laser pistols, six shooters and steam tech.  Shadow run alone has covered more noir ground than MGM did between 1945 and 1955. I hope we managed the horror genre well, and the murder mystery almost always sneaks its way into our campaigns. But do we always know we are doing it?  Can genre sit right in front of us an yet go undefined?  I think it has happened and a speculative fiction genre of all things.

Romantic Love    Articles  (Character)   (Players)

Love and the pursuit of love makes up a huge part of a person’s life, but it is often absent from game-play. Love is also often seen as a player‘s choice, but in drama and mythology love is often something that grips a character and can inspire them or cripple them.  Perhaps love should affect a character’s dice roles and perception of reality.

Anger is a great business, people will share it with you for free and if you're savvy enough, you can sell it back to them.  The Rage Mages descended from Belligerus's early followers have found that modern world has just as much use for anger and magic as the ancient world.

A supposedly empty desert on the far side of the mountains has started growing. No one knows why. At the center of the desert lies a tall rock outcropping, hundreds of feet tall. Dust storms shroud the outcropping constantly, except for one night a year.
