Great News!!

In an exiting turn of events, The Shoggoth Network, has just finalized negotiations with WotC (Wizards of the Coast). This is an exciting new prospect for us and we look forward to a exciting and financially rewarding future. I personally will be relocating to better serve our new employers, while the rest of the staff will be still telecommuting. We will slightly change our focus to D20 and will include more Dungeons and Dragons news.

REVIEW: The Ring

“You don’t really want to hurt people”

“Oh but I do. I am sorry”

***

The other night, whilst harassing K*Mart employees about wiffle ball bat theft, I purchased “The Ring” (widescreen with DTS) on DVD. I have to say, I’ve seen my share of horror in my day, but this is, by far, the most disturbing piece of film I’ve ever watched, blowing the former titleholder Requiem for a Dream out of the water.

Non-euclidean Nuptials

Andrew “Marty” Dodge recently lured one Miss Alexandra Castel into his clutches, tying the preverbal knot February 23, 2003. Hail Eris.

We wish them all the best, especially when the Haitian Voodoo drugs Marty obviously slipped his bride wear off. God help us if he breeds.

Jedi of a Lesser God: The Other Star Wars/Cthulhu Crossover

So, as promised, this is the flip side of my Star Wars crossover. This is bringing in a bit of the Star Wars universe into Call of Cthulhu. In order to curb a tendency of mine to use the d20 Cthulhu rules as much as possible, I’ll try to propose options for both d20 and BRP systems. Continue reading »

The Golden Locket, the Auburn Hair, and the Bones

This is a Christmas story. That said, it is not a story about Santa, or the Christ child, or Scrooge. It’s my Christmas story.

I am not a person given to a lot of nostalgia. I think I should make that clear from the beginning. I had left my old life behind me some years before to pursue the family business, and that had left no place in my life for Sandra. I knew she would not approve of my new lifestyle, so I never bothered to explain to her what had happened. She was ever a practical person, so I was sure she would mourn for a time, find someone new, and move on with her life. When I saw the golden locket around the neck of my latest subject, however, it reminded me of her. She had always worn such a locket, and, although this elderly woman was not her, it made me think, for the first time in ten years, about my Sandy. In a fit of nostalgia, I took the locket from her, knowing she would not miss it. Continue reading »
