Little Fears – Ichor Falls Part 1

banner

The once-abandoned West Virginia mining town of Ichor Falls lies always shrouded in mist. It crouches like a slick mushroom in a river valley, brooding. Abandoned by the world for several decades, new inroads are being created. The Elysium Group, the land’s new owners, are attempting to revitalize the near idyllic Falls, welding modern design to repaired turn-of-the-century ruins that slouch in decay.

It is 1986, and four middle-schoolers have moved with their families to take up residence in the new Ichor Falls suburb, Elysia. Their parents have told them that it’s a wonderful new opportunity for them and the family. That things can be different here, no matter what came before.

But Ichor Falls watches the passing of time as a face in a tree. History dwells here, thick and choking and rotten. Stories whispered in the grey light of day become real and inexorable in the night. From the depths of its mist, poised inside the edge of dusk, Ichor Falls waits for a day that comes all too soon.

Little Fears – The Longest Night of Your Life

roughnight

Christmas is a magical time of anticipation and wonder for children around the world. The night before Christmas is all too long and the night after so short. Some children love Christmas so much, they want it to never end.

What is it about this time of year that entrances so many people? Is there a magic inherent to the season or is it really just the collective will of countless believers pooling their want into a single night?

With so many children putting so much effort into a single wish, surely it can’t go unanswered forever. There must be a tipping point, the snowflake that causes the avalanche. For most, like so many childhood dreams, the wish goes unfulfilled. For one little boy though, that wish seems have come true. He must be the luckiest kid in the world, right?

Fiasco! – Transatlantic

Hey guys,

So we’ve had a good run here on the Drunk and the Ugly. It’s been a good time. We’ve had laughs, we’ve cried like babies, we’ve made depraved jokes.

But all of that’s about to change. Now, we know you voted on Fiasco this month (and we’re still posting it, as you can see by the above title, since you’re apparently able to read anyway) BUT. We’ve decided to make the switch to a new format of entertainment, one that we think is arguably for the better.

Without further ado, here’s Matt, with the update news:

“THE RECORDING GOT MESSED UP BECAUSE OF SHENANIGANS.  I THINK THE MIC WAS PLACED ON THE TABLE WRONG AND SO YOU CAN HEAR EVERY FOOTSTEP THROUGH THE HOUSE.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.  HERE’S A PONY GAME FOR YOUR TROUBLES. REFRESH THE PAGE IF YOU DON’T SEE IT.”

Excellently said as always, Matt. You are a picture of eloquence.

I hope you’ll stay on board for the new 24/7 Secret of the Magic Crystals Actual Play podcast. So long, Drunk and Ugly. HELLO HORSE GAMES FOR LITTLE GIRLS.

– Sam

It’s time to take to the skies!  Christopher O’Brien, Tony Redhorn, and Eld Tsukimono (along with their rambunctious friends) are winging their way to fun and games at Sucrose Park.

This isn’t your father’s airline, though. Can the friends survive horrors at 30,000 feet?
