The Spooky Chronicles: Forget Me Nots
Publisher: Thinking Skull

I had my reservations regarding this short story. A undead kid who goes to school and stuff? I must confess that I was a little skeptical of how that could work. I was terribly mistaken.

Yes, this story is about a young kid with an unique condition, his heart doesn't beat, his blood doesn't flow, and his lungs don't breath; yep, he is an undead, but with a soul, conscience, and a spirit of adventure and investigation.

The story begins when some school kids travelling to a Mansion, in which yearly is celebrated a treasure hunt on Halloween, and our protagonist, Spencer "Spook" Lawson, is VERY anxious about this trip, specially regarding the rumors the old house.

We are taken to a Lovecraftian story, and we experience it from the view point of a very special kid, who is eager to "see" what's beyond, the monsters, the horrors.

All and all it was a very cool story. A must read of all fans of the Call of Cthulhu RPG.

Scarlet Sails

We all love pirates, and this is a very good pirate story! We witness firsthand the machinations of Captain Scarlet MacGrath, a fearless pirate woman commanding a crew of fellow buccaneers. The short story starts right in the action, pillaging a trading ship and setting sails to where trade the plunder for more grog. And of course, things will get “complicated”.

The story is short, around 13 pages, but in that short size we mange to take a pick into a larger and richer world. Worth noting is the magic in this story, it is very subtle and shamanistic in style but yet it feels quite powerful, I really enjoyed those moments.

Can't wait to read more about the adventures of Captain Scarlet and this brave new world of pillaging that the author has opened.

Dust to Dust
Publisher: White Wolf

Sometimes we storytellers get out of ideas or we just don't have the time to create a short story out of the blue. And this can be even more difficult if we didn't play Vampire in a while. Thankfully we have Dust to Dust. A short story with interesting characters, a good location and a couple of plot twists that will really get into the characters.

In Dust to Dust we have to visit the decaying city of Gary, Indiana. We will get into an ongoing vendetta between a forsaken Prince and a bored anarch. But things will get really messed up when not one but two tinkerers of the dead come to town. Oh, and a bad ass vampire hunter.

If you need a story to fill up or start your chronicle, or perhaps to play a one shot at a convention, Dust to Dust will be perfect for the job!

World of Darkness: Mummy (1st edition)
Publisher: White Wolf
by Andrés M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/29/2013 15:40:15

This book is very old school, it was published before Werewolf: The Apocalypse. But old doesn't mean there is no use for this supplement! On the contrary there is useful information for the Storyteller for her to catch up with the mood and theme of Mummies. It also has a short story with interesting plot devices that can be used in any other game. To fully use this book you will need a core rulebook from the main game lines (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage).

World of Darkness: Reliquary

You may think this book is filled up with creepy ancient stuff to throw at the players. You may think this this is a shopping list for equip your badass character. It is not.

This is a really good book, inside you will find what makes an item gain the status of a "relic". How to use such items as plot devices for your chronicle. It is well explained why such a special item, sometimes unique sometimes not, may become important for the characters.

I really like that the book is not a shopping list. There is several ideas of how to use relics in your chronicle or perhaps as a character's backstory. It does have a small list of special relics, some of them very unique, like the Antikythera mechanism, other are more "mundane" but specials nonetheless. Some of them blessed, some of them cursed.

Also there are rules for creating your own relic for your stories. And last but not least a collection of scenes where the focus is on the relics. If you want to mash up the World of Darkness and the mysticism of Indiana Jones, this is the way to go. In summary a very good sourcebook for storytellers and avid players alike.
