Right. It's past time that I said some stuff about the project I'm currently freelancing on, especially since there's a bunch of freebies now available for grabs. Anyways, I'm doing some setting work for an RPG called The Cog Wars. The basics of the game are that it's a steampunk setting, with a good rules-light set of mechanics. But the work's been damned fun so far. The action of the game takes place in the independent city-state of Tiran, A huge city on the main continent of the world. As for the game itself, well, check out the demo stuff- all located behind the cut here.

William Hurt still fucking rocks.

What, it's horror! It counts as research, damnit!

So, looks like I'm going to be flat-out hooked on TNT's production of Nightmares and Dreamscapes for the next few weeks.

Tonight's review:
(somehow I managed to miss both story titles, gah.)

Story #1: Brilliant. Great tension throughout, and well, as previously mentioned, William Hurt fucking rocks. Not just for brilliant acting, but for brilliant engaging acting with a range of emotion for almost an hour straight, and doing it all without saying a single word.

Story #2: Great concept. Loved the first 2/3rds of it, until it went to Lovecraft-land. Otherwise, this entire story wouldn't have been out of place as a Visions game. Pretty ok acting, though the male lead seemed to be too overwrought constantly. And for the love of god- either get a better budget for FX and CGI, or don't use the damn things. Please.

That said though, I'm definitely looking forwards to next week. Having not read the book, I'm curious- how many stories were there in total?
