Hi Sandy,

That looks great !

Can we have any clue about your third Saga Campaign (Spawndance if I’m right) ? Whay deity will want to destroy the world ? Which Great Old One will want to enslave mankind ?
I would like to know which mini to get so I have plenty of time to order it and paint it.
I’ve just ordered Ghatanothoa and Yig. 😉

Best

the third Saga is actually going to be Dark Worlds, which involves the heroes going to Yuggoth(!) So Mi-Go and the Watcher will be quite useful. In fact, at one point they encounter the BatRatSpider and the Zepzeg aliens, which won’t be around till Hyperspace is released, which should be at or before the launch of Dark Worlds. Or, you know, use substitute figures – Batratspider is a huge spider-like alien, and zepzeg are living crystals, so alternate usable sculpts are out there. 

Spawndance is also out there … somewhere. It’s all about mutants, abominations, and outer spawn. 

Upcoming campaigns are going to feature Sleeper, Gobogeg, Ithaqua, and Cthulhu’s minions.

Hi Sandy,

Thanks for these informations. 

Is the BatRatSpider the monster from the film Angry Red Planet ?

I really look forward to see what stories you have wrote for us.

Have a good week-end.

The BatRatSpider is a non-legally-lawsuitable creature inspired by the Angry Red Planet. If you’ve seen my recent YouTube video about the Fungi From Yuggoth (Who Whispers in Darkness?), I posit that the Fungi do not normally use weapons or tools. They just carve a fungus into the shape they need, add some cyborg attachments, and go to town.  The BatRatSpider is what I think they would do to make a large war machine. It was originally some “natural” animal, evolved on a Fungus world, which they’ve powered-up with control mechanisms and weaponry. 

I also theorize that the larger Fungi “spaceships” are actually just really big fungus organisms, outfitted to travel in space.  

In my upcoming game about starship combat that’s how I treat the Fungus “cruiser” which I named the Yatevao, after a type of legendary maneating plant.

Hi Sandy,

Thanks for sharing your creative ideas, it’s really interresting.

Dread and sanity is really what was missing for D&D. Adventurers keep fighting horrors and devils but they are never afraid of anything and never shaken by what they found or see. I started to use the sanity rules in my adventures but I really like your rules.

I wish I had more time to play…

Thanks! I wish you had more time too. Perhaps if you’re working from home like me, you can organize an RPG game or two via Skype or Microsoft Teams or something.

Hi Sandy,

We are thinking about it. But we are a bit old school and some of us have a job to get on with it.

I think will give it a try when we will be missing too much our game session.

Yeah I’m missing my regular Saturday night game sessions too, plus my weekday playtests. 

One of my regular players has a wife who is a nurse, and got exposed to COVID-19 (she had a mask, etc. but still), and another found out that a person at the school he teaches at apparently was exposed to COVID-19. So they both said they refused to come over and infect me and there it stands. I guess I’m old enough i’m slightly more at risk.

Oh dear ! You’d better be cautious. We’ll have time to play safely in a few weeks.
For the moment it’s time to be creative and wrote new stories. I guess that’s what you’re doing Sandy.
For me, I have a D&D campaign to finish. I started it a year ago and guess what, it’s all about cultists of the plague god Talona…
Take care !

cultists are great enemies for D&D. They are tough, well-organized, and always have some kind of neato plan.
