#RPGaDAY 2019: Day 19


It's kind of strange that I love SCARY stuff, you see I was the kid who couldn't sleep after watching Universal monster films, let alone my contemporary films featuring Jason, Freddy, or Michael.

I was always worried about watching something with too much gore in it (and still am, on some level).

And yet, I love SCARY fiction, and my first short story as an adult (for a college class) was horror.

I like running SCARY games, the darker and more splatterpunk the better. I just don't want to see them turned into films.
