Darker Days Radio Episode #35

I Want My (Black) Hat Back

Mike and Chris are joined by returning guest "Black Hat" Matt McFarland! The hosts discuss the latest White Wolf news, including kickstarter and Mummy: the [Moaning] news. Darker Days also introduces a new segment, Beyond the Kirlian Camera, exploring film and television for World of Darkness inspiration. Next there is a listener inspired review of three sourcebooks regarding cults and infernalism - World of Darkness Inferno, Ashen Cults, and Devil's Due. The hosts discuss how this information can be used in Dark Ages settings, and how the ideas can be applied to other games, such as Werewolf: the Forsaken.

Finally, the episode introduces Matt McFarland's new roleplaying game, Curse the Darkness - a post apocalyptic game of oppression, fear, and hope.
