This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Appendix N books
« on: June 05, 2022, 09:24:10 PM »
A surprising number of these are available on YouTube as audiobooks. I have listened to “At the Earth’s Core”, “The Face in the Frost”, five of the Elric stories, “The Eyes of the Overworld”, “Burn, Witch, Burn!”, and am currently listening to “At the Mountains of Madness”.

I’ve been listening to “The Appendix N Book Club” on Spotify. The hosts discuss the stories, and how they relate to actually playing the D&D game. For example, they note that from “Burn, Witch, Burn!”, we get the charm and silence spells.

*google* Thankyew. I'll check them out.

Unh. Latest podcast is where I started, and the guest is going on about declonization of RPGs and how the Drow are "problematic".

The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

You also missed the episode where they talk about "Frankenstein’s monster as a metaphor for queer angst,"

Seriously though, I tried to listen but it was just too much. Weird that anyone would make an anti-OSR podcast about Appendix N.
