Synopsis: Guns-blazing danger portends and international intrigue unfurls in the city of conspiracy, the licentious, opium-infused Berlin of the East. In the shadow struggle between nations, no weapon is more fiercely coveted than the star mirror. It brings blood-draining death from beyond the stars! A group of investigators meets in Shanghai in order to uncover the mystery behind the death of a priest. They find far more than they could possibly imagine. This scenario is part of Stunning Eldritch Tales, although it was changed to take place in the 1920s, rather than the 1930s.

In our very first game of 5E Dungeons and Dragons, Sean tries GMing for the first time! Fortunately, this turned out less train-wreckish than the Haunting. After a long war, a formerly powerful nation struggles to rebuild. The switch from monarchy to a republic form of government has also raised tensions between the various political factions. In other words, this is the fantasy Weimar Republic. The new government has appointed a group of troubleshooters to find and capture a dissident leader. Can they find their man? Will he go quietly? The answer is no, we’re playing Dungeons and Dragons, not Dungeons and non-violent solutions to our problems. More background info on the game’s setting is available here.
Five Nights at Freddy’s is a scary video game about a creepy restaurant with even creepier animatronic robots. In other words, it is a perfect fit for Monsters and Other Childish Things. A group of kids visit Freddy’s and get very special prizes that grant them strange new powers (and a very special friend!). Unfortunately for them, it also teleports them into Freddy’s after the restaurant closes. Can they survive the night? Even if they survive that night, can they survive the other nights? I mean it says FIVE nights, that implies more than one night. Anyway, enjoy this special horrific one shot, just in time for Halloween!
