Research is FUN!

Stopped by the library yesterday after getting a haircut.

In addition to the weekly load of "brain candy" (read, manga), I checked out some guidebooks on New England (inspired by justric's old game, I'm putting Miles Cross on the north shore of MA), two books on urban legends (great source material for a nWoD game, methinks), and a book on PA hauntings (for my tabletop WtA game).

I am now a happy little geek.

398.2 and 133.4 are two of my favorite places in the library. ;)

Did you pick up any of Jan Harold Brunvand's books?

Yep. Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid: The Book of Scary Urban Legends, and Too Good To Be True: The Colossal Book of Urban Legends.

These books are the first time I've necountered the author, and I think I like his work. He has a very readable and engaging style.

Going with the 4 courts and courtless?

So many questions. I love the idea that there could be a fetch out there living your life.

Four Courts and Courtless, yes ma'am.

I'm leaning toward having a Winter King (or Queen) in charge...it seems to fit the "mysterious" mood I have planned for the game.

I was just thinking... what fun if my PC was from Haverton...

Mind you, if I go by the book, I'll have to scrap my idea for Corporal Jack... unless I make it WWII instead of WWI. Either way, I'll have no problem in coming up with character background. My main problem is what Seeming and Kith (if any) to choose! Lord and Lady, what a selection!!!
