- Andrew’s an inspiration. He’s taken my minimalist little twentysome page system and Jack’s delightfully gothic muskets-and-werewolves setting blogposts and turned it into a gorgeously realized game.

Reinterpretation can be deeply rewarding, if that person shows you new ways to think and dream within the context of your own creation. Though his World Between is not my World Between...I would play in Andrew's games in a heartbeat...I like many of Andrew's innovations enough to now use them in my games. I'd wager that you will also find much to love in the pages that follow as well.

Andrew Shields is a prolific blogger producing excellent content that flies entirely too low on the radar. He has about one million other cool things that if you took a free afternoon and searched around, you would have a million gaming ideas and immediately want to play.

Whenever you create something and then allow other people to use what you've created, it is always fascinating to see what that interaction produces. I must admit that seeing my stuff through Andrew's eyes has been really gratifying. Thanks, Andrew!

"Crumbling Epoch" is another great experiment in the Fictive tradition, and I’m proud to have contributed to it in some small way.

This week will have Arkham Horror characters based on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Let’s get started with some Slayers!
Three friends came over last night and we tried out the Arkham Horror set I made with the Supernatural characters for the first time. Niki did “arts and crafts” to make the game pieces, which looked great. Since it was a weeknight, we played with no expansions; the game took 3 hours, which was just right.
I couldn’t have asked for a better run. The fans of the show said the feel was spot on, with the mechanics encouraging players to use the characters in a similar way to how they acted on the show.
We tried out Sam and Dean, John, and Joanna Beth. Dean pulled weapons out of his trunk the whole game, and only got sent to jail once for credit card fraud. Joanna Beth kept taking Dean’s weapons, and leaping through gates. John told people to get out of the street a lot (we were up against Ithaqua, who does Stamina damage if you’re left in the street; with John, they could fight in the street and get to cover.) He was grumpy and didn’t consult as he ran around on his own errands. Sam stockpiled magic and weapons, and then got cocky when he got Ruby as his ally, no longer fearing encounters.
We had a great time, and I look forward to playing again and getting some more of the gang on the table.
Here are the last five allies.
Well, that’s it! I hope you enjoyed the Supernatural for Arkham Horror custom content.
Because I am a bit insane, I figured I’d do 10 allies with a Supernatural theme. That way you can replace the whole ally deck for a Supernatural themed game. Here are the first five. Since all the backs are the same, I’m only including one back.
