The Krypton Radio newsletter ROCKS FROM SPACE is back, direct to your inbox! Here’s the latest:

We’ve had a pretty rough month this month. We lost both Michael Brown, our Four Color Bullet comics columnist, and Vagabond “Tony” Carter, (Robert Hess when not on the air) both to heart attacks within about a week’s time. Michael was 46, and Robert was only 40, and they both died of heart attacks. Two finer men we have never known, and Krypton Radio wouldn’t have grown to be what it is without them. We are saddened, and surprised by the suddenness of it, and confused as to how we’re supposed to go on without these men by our side. It’s just not something you get over. Time shouldn’t heal all wounds. Sometimes you want the people in your life to be a part of you forever, and Robert and Michael always will be.

Also, a minor correction, station owners Susan Fox and Gene Turnbow have been invited to Arisia in Boston in January of 2017 – that’s January, not February – as Radio Guests of Honor.

Remember, you can get some great new shirts at some great new prices on Krypton Radio’s Secret Lab, right on our web site. We have sizes up to 6XL, so there are shirts that fit everyone.

If you’re a patron of Krypton Radio via our Patreon campaign, we’re done being cagey about it. Just go pick out which shirt you want, and if you’re donating $10 a month or more, we’ll send you any one design you want for free. Just email us at with your selection (but you have to be a Patreon supporter to qualify). See the link at the bottom of this newsletter for the Patreon campaign itself.

Keep it tuned to Krypton Radio. It’s the best geek radio there is.

RPGnet Newsletter #75
November 1, 2016

Kickstarter Spotlight – Kickstarters You Might Have Missed Edition

Typically, the Newsletter only does one Kickstarter Spotlight per month. After last week’s edition, however, two of your fellow RPGnetters put in requests for Kickstarter Campaigns to be featured in the Newsletter. So, this week, in place of our normal Threads You Might Have Missed feature, we’ll take a quick look at those two additional gaming-related Kickstarters. As always, if you have suggestions or requests for Newsletter content, please shoot me (Iustum) a PM.

First up, requested by RPGnetter El Ravager34, is Mythic Wars: Clash of the Gods & Cthulhu Rises. This campaign from Excalibre Games US offers both the base game (Mythic Wars: Clash of the Gods) and an expansion (Cthulhu Rises). Mythic Wars is a deckbuilding, dice-rolling tabletop game wherein the players battle it out between groups of deities called factions. The full game rules are available linked from the Kickstarter campaign, making it fairly easy for prospective backers to get a feel for whether this is the type of tabletop game for them.

Excalibre Games has been producing well-regarded tabletop games (predominantly hex-and-counter war games) for many years, so this foray into a different style is well-worth your time to check out. The Mythic Wars: Clash of the Gods & Cthulhu Rises Kickstarter runs until December 2.

Second, RPGnetter Allandaros pointed out the Operation Unfathomable Kickstarter Campaign from Jason Sholtis of the Hydra Cooperative. (Full disclosure – Allandaros is a member of the Hydra Cooperative.)

Operation Unfathomable is a “gonzo funhouse” underworld campaign setting for the OSR Swords & Wizardry RPG. The Kickstarter campaign page has loads of previews of the book’s content and art, so a prospective backer should be able to discern pretty quickly whether it would be a useful addition to their OSR library. Also worth noting is that Sholtis is using primarily his own art in the book, which will definitely help maintain its consistent aesthetic. The campaign is also very transparent with regard to shipping costs and has some useful charts to help prospective backers make sense of the various pledge levels. (In fact, after seeing them, Yr. Humble Editor is more than happy to sign a petition that would make similar charts mandatory for all future gaming Kickstarters.)

Overall, if you have any interest in running an underworld-based OSR campaign, it is well worth your time to check this out. The Operation Unfathomable Kickstarter runs until November 10.

New Columns

Christopher Cecil offered up a new Fuzzy Thinking: “A Hard Hobbit to Break.”

Fred Furtado of Superseeds rounded out his series on trophy-based superheroes in “The Trophy Room, Part Three.”

And, Sandy Antunes leapt back up on Sandy’s Soapbox with some tongue-in-cheek advice about “Making IP Theft Work for You!”

New Reviews

The week started off with four more new gaming accessory reviews from Antonios S:

Antonios S also reviewed to supplements for the Dice City board game. First up was “Dice City: Crossroads,” where Dice City becomes more tactical and more themed in a single expansion. Second was “Dice City: All That Glitters,” a meaningful, if somewhat limited, addition to the original game.

John T. Jessop took a look at “Red Mists: Swords Against Sorcery,” a slim, beautiful, visceral and flawed gem of an RPG that gets right most of what makes S&S such a compelling genre.

And, Edward Kabara reviewed the “Call of Cthulhu Seventh Edition Keeper Rulebook,” and found it to suffer from some design/layout problems, but to be a reanimation of a great rule system.

Sign Off

Have a good week, everyone.

Time-tripping with Lucid Dreams

Would you like to arrive in the Americas with the Pilgrims, experience ancient Rome, or visit future, domed cities on Mars? Whatever time tripping fantasy you harbor, you can, with proper training and practice, attempt to fulfill it in your dreams.


Most of the time, you probably don’t realize you’ve been dreaming until after you wake up. By then the dream has already come to an end. Some people, however, are conscious that they’re dreaming while the dream is in progress, a state of consciousness known as lucid dreaming. And, research now reveals, lucid dreamers can direct their dreams, much like a film director directs a film. They can create or eliminate characters, fly to distant locales, change their actions and the actions of others, even alter dream weather, scenery, or props. With all those capabilities, lucid dreamers can certainly teach themselves to dream of historic or future locales. –and read the rest here.

 

LUCID DREAM TIME TRAVEL
A major requirement for successful dream control is the ability to remember, appreciate, and record your dreams
