Monster of the Week: Colour out of Space – 2020 | New 5th Edition Monster

“They’re not my family.”  Apart from Tolkien, there is probably no bigger influence on the fantasy worlds that make up the backdrops of most tabletop games than H.P. Lovecraft.

Tome of the Week: Grimoire of Malcolm Graves (Ghoulies) – 1985 | New 5th Edition Item

“I felt sure that the curse had passed forever..” You can’t get much more iconic for ’80’s horror than the cover of 1985’s Ghoulies: The image of a demon bursting out of a toilet bowl is loaded with all sorts of implications. Yet believe it or not, I never got around to watching the filmContinue reading “Tome of the Week: Grimoire of Malcolm Graves (Ghoulies) – 1985 | New 5th Edition Item”
