Quick update before I disappear down the rabbit hole again, messieurs and mesdames. (Did I even spell that right? Who knows! I don’t speak French. Though I think I might try to learn using duolingo. It’d be awesome to read The Count in the original language. Or Arsene Lupin stories. I’ve even heard that Flaubert is good in French! [Silly literary confession—I really didn’t like Madame Bovary when I read it back in the day. Probably due for a reread, though maybe my problem was the translation. Hence its mention here.])
Anyway, we rocked out at Pax East with a wide and wonderful clan, and I came away with a truly enormous haul of what I understand are referred to in common parlance as lewtz?
- FLCL t-shirt. The only anime I want a t-shirt for, and now I have one. Hah!
- Qin: the Art of War and GM Screen. I’ve been wanting to run a game with a bunch of Mo-ists running around during the Warring States period masterminding siege defense, and now I have a ruleset! Also, my god the Qin books are absurdly well researched.
- Microscope. Fractal epic history world creation for maximum ridiculosity. Very excited to try this.
- 3:16 Carnage Among the Stars. Aliens + Sartre = space marines of existential dread! I’m also excited to try this, if by ‘try this’ I mean ‘inflict this on players.’
