Day 3, The Electric Chair: 31 Days of Halloween 2015

Our man was singed and confused, but sent home from the local ER within a few hours. We quickly decided we would leave him in the van with the tech guy the following night just to give him a bit more time to recover. He grumbled but eventually admitted it was the smart thing to…

Day 2, The Entryway: 31 Days of Halloween 2015

We’re back and we have a door to go through, so without waiting longer, we headed insight at nightfall. With our technical advisor in the van, there were five of us heading in. We might divide and conquer after a while, but we want to get the lay of the land first. The first thing…

Lovecraftian Randomness: Aberrant Descriptions

If you have ever played in a horror game and asked questions like: Where did that tentacle come from? Are human eyes supposed to have vertical slits? Why does that guy have flippers for hands? That might be an indication that you’re playing somewhere near the weird world of H.P. Lovecraft. Like getting near the…

Fiction Friday: The Temple Stands Empty…

The temple stands empty, yet breathes with each breeze blowing through its open doors. Though the inside is dark now, it wasn’t always so. Long ago there were torches, people, and worship within these now dusty halls. But if you stand very still, you can her the screams from more recent events. It began innocently.…

Infini-Troupe, 23-FEB-2015 – Artistic License and The Blue Men

Last Friday we talked about creating a single artist and some of the ways you might be able to use it in a campaign. Today we’re going to take that concept a bit further by exploring a conclave of artists. Now you may be wondering about the reasons behind creating a group of artists, but…

Infini-Troupe, 10-FEB-2015 – The Haunting of Krieg House

31 Days of Halloween, Day 29

With only 3 days left in the challenge, we’re down to 3 rooms (my count was off yesterday) on the first floor of the Haunted Mansion from Heroic Maps. Today’s room is on the front of the house and holds some intriguing clues to its part in the story. With two doors, one from the…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 9

As I continue into the depths of October, it’s hard to believe we’re almost 1/3 of the way through the month already on this mad quest of writing. Each vignette comes from just a few key words and a little context, and I have to say the things my brain tosses out sometimes disturb even…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 7

One more strange day of writing for Halloween… This time we entered the basement of a serial killer courtesy of Little Spaces: Scary Basements. And I have to admit that I was a little disturbed when I figured out what was in the jars my muse suggested based on the terms Taste, Glass, and Lumpy… It…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 6

As we continue the journey through October, things have become more and more gruesome. Today’s vignette came from Little Spaces: Gruesome Graves and involves Taste, Ceremony, Moldy, and Desecration… Even as you watch from the shadows, you see four humanoid shapes at the four cardinal directions standing on the edge of an open grave. Each…
