RPG a Day, Day 28: Putting the frighteners on them

Today we talk about scary games. I think I've run one or two in my time, but fear is a tough emotion to generate at the table, or even live: much tougher than excitement or laughter.


Qelong is really dingdang good, like a horrible fantasy Heart of Darkness set in horrible fantasy Cambodia, and the PDF is less than £5.

Cthulhu Live has its hits and misses, but it opened my eyes to a completely different way of conceptualising live gaming, one which I still make a lot of use of even in parlour-style games. The third edition probably has more stuff, but the first edition has a nice wide page format and cute illustrations by Steve Gallacci.
