New Pal

Tim pulled his shirt up and wiped his face with it. The shirt was black, and the sweat left a shiny smear just under the Batman symbol. His mom would’ve yelled at him if she’s seen it, but they never let parents in during recruitment. Marius sat down against the wall. He was sweating, too. […]

Chill Update: Your Favorite Monsters

Over here at Growling Door, we’re beginning work on the next Chill supplement, tentative titled Fearsome Beasts.

Farthings concludes with, “Remember, if all else fails, God and SAVE are on your side.” That line, I think, crystallizes what Chill is about for me.  Horror games aren’t exactly thin on the ground these days.
