Re: Doctor Sleep – basis for a modern game

Fun ideas for a game. Here's a link to see what the movie is about, I hadn't heard about it before either. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Sleep_(2019_film)

Re: CKG Kickstarter

If you don't already have the CKG, then yes this kickstarter will be worth it. At least, as long as you are the CK in your group. One of the best GM books on the market, I think. You will find a ton of stuff to enhance your games.

I'm in. Love the new cover, excited about an updated and expanded index, especially when the Adventurer's Backpack is included. The chart folio will be great too.

Re: Color Out of Space

Not yet. I did the 7th ed kickstarter and bought a bunch of stuff since, including World War Cthulu, and Pulp cthulhu, but until recently I hadn't anyone in my group interested in playing it. They like C&C too much. I've also read all the Lovecraft stories.

A possible in between could be all class abilities if not prime get a +3.
Could be a good compromise and certainly wont' 'break' the game in any way.

Check out p. 126 for the Barghest. They have it classified as a Fey, and spelled a bit different. Not a fan of this new take on it. No idea on the Bag-o-Bones, although I do recall Stephen saying it would be in the M&T. Oh, seems an odd place to put it but glad they didn't miss the Barghest. Thanks...

Re: Mind flayer

From wikipeida:

The Githzerai were introduced by Charles Stross in the first edition Fiend Folio (1981). Stross borrowed the names Githzerai and Githyanki from two fictional species created by George R. R. Martin in his 1977 science fiction novel Dying of the Light.
