Day two of the Week of Darkness is upon us and who better to share the day with than the Wyrm? Nurture your despair with a new web enhancement from the Midnight Express.
As the masses rush across the planet - app in hand - in search of small animals to enslave, this web enhancement considers how such a fad could be positioned into the World of Darkness (specifically the setting for Werewolf: the Apocalypse).
It provides a precis of the Pentex involvement and how the app has been integrated into the business practices of some of the company's subsidiaries, as well as suggesting some plot hooks for Storytellers.
Whilst this is written for the Werewolf: the Apocalypse setting, it could easily be re-purposed for any of the World of Darkness lines.
You can download the enhancement here: https://kippersandjam.wordpress.com/2016/10/31/web-enhancement-minimonsters-go/

In Episode 22 of the Midnight Express Podcast, Pete and I discussed Samuel Haight, 'The Skinner' from Werewolf: the Apocalypse. Presented here is a distillation of chronicle ideas to use the most infamous of Garou in your own chronicle. These ideas position Haight as a possible saviour of the Garou Nation, and the Rite of Sacred Rebirth as a desperate weapon against the Wyrm.

The truth is out there!
BK hangs his 'I Want to Believe' poster, whilst Pete forages for a pants suit before opening an unauthorised investigation into 'Project Twilight'. Through the haze of Cancer Man's smoke, they unearth storytelling advice about keeping the mystery of the unknown, presenting investigation clues to players, fixing the Background: Favours (using LARP rules, no less), and Pete ambushes BK with the Background: Arsenal.

BK and Pete use The Skinner as the basis for a discussion not only around the latest title to feature Samuel Haight, but also some ideas on integrating this infamous NPC with your chronicle. They cover off on some story ideas, explore the motivations for Sam's obsession with wolf pelts, and offer some critique on the Skinner's hunting glories.
We also mention the excellent sourcebook Valkenburg Foundation
which will be reviewed in a future episode.
Hosts: BK and Pete.

BK and Pete step into the neutral ground of Vancouver to explore the tenuous peace between Kindred and Garou. They discuss the book in general, highlight some of the key locations and talk about how this setting (or smaller elements of it) could work in your own chronicle.
