    Hello! I am working on adapting some of the “Burn Shift” rules to another post-apocalyptic setting, and had some questions about some rules elements for Communities that I was having trouble absorbing, please. If you are able to help, let me know your preferred forum! Thank you!

    Dear Saha,
    My name is Pablo Vázquez Pereiro and I am going to be the Keeper in a new one shoot play of Achtung! Cthulhu (Chaosium system) at the next “IX Jornadas Gary Gygax” on 17th and 18th of March in A Coruña, Spain.

    I like to create my own adventures but I found your work really inspiring because, to be honest, it’s almost 20 years since my last game as Keeper. I have been playing other games, of course but I needed inspiration… I didn’t wanted to make just a “The Dirty Dozen” copy. I was looking for something a little more original but at the same time simple because it is a 3 hours game, after all.
    “IX Jornadas Gary Gygax” is an event which combines RPGs, wargames and tables top games. Obviously, in honor of Mr Ernest Gary Gygax. Last year we counted around 500 people (which it’s actually a lot).

    Anyway, I just wanted to to say thank you.

    Hey Sarah,

    another voice here to add to the “please finish the Achtung Cthulhu Zero Point campaign” choir. I’m running Heroes of the Sea after we’d gone to sea Dunkirk. Spot on…

    I would also very much see the Acthung Cthulhu Zero Point adventure “Code of Honor”. The others in the series are great, and I really looked forward to read and play this module.

    Waaagh Sarah, are you interested to come at Eclipse 14th edition, the french RPG convention (31march – 2 april 2017) Rennes, Brittany ?
    Possibilities to have a stand and mastering during the event.

    Hi Sarah, any idea when the next Zero Point will be ready? I’m stalling my campaign for it and loved the last ones.

    Sarah, I just found and bought your Legends of Anglerre RPG. I was wondering if you had any current products that uses a similar magic system?

    Hi Sarah! I’m working on a system of Multi-User Interactive Stories and I thought you might be interested! I’ll be running a Kickstarter campaign for the whole month of October to get the system up and running!
