Kickin' it Elderly School

Tom brought back Elder Tunnels for Halloween this year and I wrote the intro, so I thought it would be fun to post it here too. I mean, nobody's buying this because they gotta get my silly introduction, so I'm pretty confident that I'm not costing Peryton any sales.

Introduction to Halloween 2019 Elder Tunnels follows the break:

Kickin' it Elderly School

Welcome back to the tunnels‭! ‬New cracks have spread from those old familiar Tunnels with Trolls in them,‭ ‬burrowing right through the Crawlspace if you can Stay Alive long enough.‭ ‬And QAGS.‭ ‬I guess I could do something with‭ "‬QAGSmire‭" ‬or try to make duck calls scary,‭ ‬but I won't.‭

There might be some other games,‭ ‬too.‭ ‬Part of the new thing is that Elder Tunnels is looking to‭ ‬showcase all sorts of indie games.‭ ‬And yeah,‭ ‬traditionally,‭ ‬I suppose people read what's inside before introducing a book,‭ ‬but I'm waiting for the print version.‭ ‬Anyway,‭ ‬there's some great stuff in here.‭ ‬Probably.

The Halloween issues have always been the best part of Elder Tunnels.‭ ‬Even the in-between issues have a little bit of pumpkin spice in them,‭ ‬but the Halloween ones are special.‭ ‬It even says so on the cover‭!

It's hard to imagine anyone who plays role-playing games not being into Halloween.‭ ‬That's not just because everybody's kinda role-playing,‭ ‬but because Halloween is when reaching into the Dark,‭ ‬grabbing whatever you find,‭ ‬and taking it out for dinner is expected.‭ ‬When Halloween Season comes,‭ ‬the Dark is where you're supposed to go,‭ ‬not just something you drift into while you pretend you're working.‭ ‬That same secret abyss is where RP gamers go when they're delving into some fantastic imaginary world together.

Here's a few more dark tunnels for you and some friends to explore.‭ ‬I'm looking forward to checking them out,‭ ‬myself.‭ ‬Cheers‭!
