Mere Anarchy is Loosed upon the Blog

Sorry about the radio silence this month. I've been depressed and scared and anxious due to...recent events in general, I guess you could say. Politics and personal obstacles have conspired to piss in my cheerios. I keep meaning to post something, but it seems like I just end up reading the news and getting worked up and screwing around all night instead. I'm going to try and knock this shit off in December: my next big project is a read-through of Carcosa in the style of my Holmes Basic posts. I was thinking about posting the short script I wrote a while back for the trailer to a theoretical Wolfenstein movie, but I was worried that it didn't have enough to do with RPGs to merit inclusion here. So now I'm writing this instead. Go fucking figure.

On a related note, does anyone have any recommendations for a good RPG about thwarting the Nazis? I've been in a no-holds-barred kind of mood, lately.

Just in case anything still matters, here's my fucking Joesky tax, I guess:
