Jan 1, 2023


It was Christmas last week, and so of course I got some new books: some RPG stuff (in the next section); a chilli cookbook; volumes 9, 10, and 12 of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (volume 11 was apparently temporarily sold out); Homo Deus (my dad has a habit of getting me books he thinks I should read); The Library at Mount Char; and Perdido Street Station.

This week I read:

Roleplaying Games

I got the A Time to Harvest campaign (for Call of Cthulhu), and also bought myself the ALIEN RPG core book and GM screen on a whim:

The ALIEN RPG core book and GM screen, and the A Time to Harvest campaign for Call of Cthulhu

Sadly, while I love Call of Cthulhu, my players are less keen. They like it, they just like other things more. So that book will probably sit around unplayed (but not unread) for a while. On the other hand, I’ve managed to drum up some interest in ALIEN, so I’ll run a one-shot of that in the near future.

And, not that the players know it yet, but the next session of my Traveller campaign is going to feature a very ALIEN-inspired abandoned mining colony…
