  2. “Xas Irkalla” - a dark, insane RPG inspired by black metal

    Warning! This game features MAJOR Adult themes! It believe it has been inspired by satanic black metal music and includes a lot of insanity and gruesomeness.

    Today we are playing the "Nightmares of the Dead Dreamers" intro adventure from the Core Rulebook. Xas Irkalla uses the "Strain" RPG mechanic, which we will be explaining briefly at the start of the game.

    Beneath grey skies of falling ashes, corpse-like denizens beckon for scraps of flesh, kneeling in filth and ecstasy before their slumbering god-kings. Wasteland tribes fight against the armies that come to take them as cattle. Witches are hunted and bred to serve as psychic slaves to sorcerers at war, and things of nightmare are birthed from the cracks in the earth, where reality is twisted into surreal labyrinths of intersecting worlds. This is the world of Xas Irkalla.

  5. The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn 2 of 7

    The Gulag Archipelago is Solzhenitsyn’s masterwork, a vast canvas of camps, prisons, transit centres and secret police, of informers and spies and interrogators and also of heroism, a Stalinist anti-world at the heart of the Soviet Union where the key to survival lay not in hope but in despair. The work is based on the testimony of some two hundred survivors, and on the recollection of Solzhenitsyn’s own eleven years in labour camps and exile. It is both a thoroughly researched document and a feat of literary and imaginative power. This edition has been abridged into one volume at the author’s wish and with his full co-operation.
