Slot 8

"To Live and Die in Texorami: A Fistful of Shadows" by Chris Kindred

It's a place where steampunk technology meets magic and gunfighters. It's a place where Random coulda been in the Magnificent Seven. You're Random's buddies. Lord knows why. Naturally, there's gonna be trouble.

"Weirmoomin" by Sarah Kindred

For those of you who couldn't get enough of the "Hot Potato" series of revisionist Amber history, here's chapter four: In which we discover exactly how Amber responded [or didn't] to the arcane threat of the Weirmoomin, out of Shadow. Join us again for the continuing saga, in which you might hear Caine say, "No, I want to destroy Avalon, Daddy!"

This is an extremely silly, nonlinear, blow-off-steam and destroy the universe kind of game. Not recommended for anybody who wishes to roleplay extensively, remain rooted in reality, or really, do anything but pun extensively and make obscene, scatalogical, and vulgar jokes.
