Two years ago I challenged myself to create a blog where I used the headlines from the local newspaper to make up plots for the Paranoia RPG. Wanting to develop my horror writing, I decided to dust off the local papers and see what devious Mythos plots might be lurking behind the headlines.
Also, for Keepers who are looking for creative tales to weave for their groups, I hope they find this blog useful for jumpstarting their imaginations, whether it causes them to come up with similar ideas or they simply flesh out the tales I’ve outlined.
May your sanity points fall slowly,

Support MST3K, Get MST3K-Inspired Dungeons and Dragons Modules

I’m Garrett Crowe, a lifelong fan of MST3K and freelance game designer. Being a Mstie has always been about fighting hard fights in creative ways (like a good D&D encounter) to keep the show on the air or vital in pop culture. With Joel Hodgson trying to make new episodes via #bringbackmst3k, I found myself wondering what I could do to provide a significant boost.
Hence, I’ve vowed to write a Dungeons and Dragons module for every million dollars the kickstarter earns. Each module will be based on a classic MST3K episode. Currently, I’ve announced plans to write: Manos, Space Mutiny and the Beginning of the End. Hopefully, the kickstarter will continue to succeed, and more titles will be added. The Manos adventure will debut GenCon 2016.
I would love to help Joel’s kickstarter by motivating the gaming community
