Update & Some Music

Posted by Nathan P. on November 15, 2007

I’m heading out to JiffyCon on Saturday, which I’m mega-excited about.

I’m running a weekly Aberrant game for some friends, which is going well and is scratching all my long-term-established-setting-high-character-immersion itches.

I was playing in a weekly GURPS game with rotating “campaigns”, but I’m sitting the next cycle out. I need time to work on Annalise. It’s, as my buddy who’s playing in both of these games with me and who playtested Darkpages and Annalise with me aptly said, “A different kind of fun”.

Speaking of, I’ll be running it at JiffyCon, and shortly therafter have it available for interested readers, I expect. This is the first game I’m writing while listening to an extensive soundtrack (or any soundtrack at all, really), which has been a very rewarding ritual. So far tonite:

  • Depeche Mode
  • Goldfrappe
  • Rammstein
  • Oingo Boingo
  • Lords of Acid
  • Healer
  • Evanescence
  • The New Pornographers
  • Rilo Kiley
  • The Cure
  • Sisters of Mercy
  • Bauhaus

Though, the single theme song for the game is definitely Bat for Lashes’s ‘Sarah’.

    I dig it based exclusively on the soundtrack.

  3. Yah, Bat for Lashes is my favorite new band/person/music. Like, ever.

    Oingo Boingo rules. I have their farewell performance live album from 95, and it’s totally rad.

    There are way more artists on the soundtrack, those were just the ones that had played so far when I wrote the post…notably, The Decemberists, She Wants Revenge (another good source of theme songs), Stabbing Westward, Stars…I dunno. Music rules.
