monster nation

Kodachrome, enlarged 4 times, by Paul A. Zahl.

From “Back-yard Monsters in Color,” National Geographic, August, 1952.

Velvety black and yellow bumblebee fur has a deep pile. Carrying pollen grains caught on the hairs from male to female flowers, the bee helps propagate many farm crops. This bee is the only insect which pollinates some types of red clover. Others have tongues too short to reach the nectar, and so are not attracted to deep flowers where they would pick up pollen.

If you ever feel rejected by someone, you can tell yourself they just haven’t evolved to meet your needs. The right bees will find you, don’t worry.

Day 8: Hierarchy, Power, & Governance

Fittingly after economy is questions about who runs the land, which may very well include how these powers control the flow of goods and services in the economy that they look over.

This day is about asking what sorts of leaders run your world, and how power is distributed. What’s it like being at a lower rung in this system? How are these individuals chosen? Democracy? Lineage? Force?

Also how do these powers maintain power and confidence in those that they guide? Is protection necessary from dangerous forces such as monsters, other nations, or even from the government itself?


If you’ve never played Werewolf: Wild West you are missing out because while you do have Very Serious Things happening, one of the Glass Walkers (Iron Riders at time) most followed totems is a ROBOT LION TRAIN.

All kinds of bananas steampunk things you can think of are totally appropriate to setting.

Vampire pirates are an actual problem and they have an official FLAG in WoD.

And aside from the werewolves punching each other (which is about 50% of the time, really) one of the big threats is various ancient monsters bound by First Nations are breaking lose. all of them. 

and every american cryptid you can think of too.

you do have all kinds of other very serious themes going on (genocide, manifest destiny, slavery, unfettered capitalism, etc) there too.   This IS a World of Darkness game.

But you can also have your werewolf cowboys fighting robots, dinosaurs, and Bigfoot all in the same session and that’s all On Theme.

Project: Bunny (pt.2)

Here is part 2 finally!! Gosh, I’ve been meaning to finish this since I promise a part 2 to you guys and I try my best to keep my promises! Though unfortunately, there isn’t much fluff…or any. I’m sorry, like I said before I’m not a good writer and pretty new at these. I’m just sort of trying to develop the relationship and stuff….so again sorry, bad grammar or misspellings.
