Tattered Vampires

In honor of Halloween, I thought it was time to reveal a bit about vampires in the Tattered Magicks world. Though my playtesters haven’t encountered any yet, they are definitely out and about causing trouble wherever they choose to go. Like many folks, I had a great time playing White Wolf’s Vampire the Masquerade game…

Tangled in the Dark

As we quickly approach Old Hallow’s Eve, I’m left pondering some of the horrors in the dark corners of Tattered Magicks. We’ve already talked about ghosts and I brought up werewolves about a year ago for Aliens & Asteroids. But I recently had an opportunity to ponder tentacled horrors. Now, what is a tentacled horror?…

Magick vs. Ghost, Who Wins?

Aliens & Asteroids: The Third Public Playtest, Pt 4

So to recap our third session: We gained a new player! Yay! And our brave heroes were called by the Drs. Roberts on Luna, who had found what they thought was some sort of hidden Grey Man base on Mimas, a moon of Saturn. (Part 1) They arrived on Mimas, were taken prisoner by the…

Aliens & Asteroids: The Third Public Playtest, Pt 3

Once the heroes were freed from their cells in the weird prison of the Grey Men, they plotted ways to escape. But first, they released the lizard alien down the hall. They learned his name was Bob, he was a Skaali, he could read galactic, but couldn’t speak it. And within moments they were off…
