Stand with Ukraine

The central theme of the Muckrakerverse is displaced people gathering the courage to confront tyranny, a theme that is common in much sci-fi and fantasy. What we fantasize about in comics & RPGs about has become a grim reality for many families. I encourage everyone who can to make some show of support for this […]

On Arthur, Faith & RPGs

This may be at first seem an odd topic, but one I think is very important. Many older RPG players (happens to us all) remember the “satanic panic.” I myself have never faced any real oppressions from religion for my love of playing RPGs. I myself am a Latin Mass loving Catholic and my mother […]

The Poking Bomb

“Sp”Rark!  Help me!  Help me!” Sp’Rark ran into the Observation Deck, to find Xogue fleeing the sample holding chamber and slamming the door shut behind her. “I-I t-though it was a t-turtle…” Sp’Rark went to the Observation Deck’s window, “Xogue!  W-what have you done?  That’s a human larvae!!” “It had a shell…it was green…all these Earth […]

The Journey Begins

My Dear C’therax, I am shocked that you have grown blue so quickly.  Yes, I am well aware that Mars is a most boring planet, but you must admit that more interesting sites are just a a few warp-blasts away.  And, surely good company is not lacking?  Don’t play coy my friend.  I’ve seen how […]
