The good folks at Protodimension Magazine have just put out the ninth issue of their PDF periodical that supports some of the finest horror roleplaying game there are. I’m honored they count my own Little Fears in the company of Dark Conspiracy*, All Flesh Must Be Eaten, and other genre classics, and even more honored they’ve included a new scenario for Little Fears Nightmare Edition in their latest issue that hit digital shelves just last night.
Tad Kelson’s “Some Yards” begins as a haunted house scenario but soon turns into much more. It all starts when a friend of the group goes missing and ends with, well, that’d be cheating.
The latest issue of Protodimension boasts an impressive 94 pages of horror scenarios, gear, opinion, fiction, poetry—even a standalone RPG! You can grab your own copy right here. The Little Fears scenario begins on page 72 but you’ll want to check out the rest of the magazine after you savor that.
Thanks again to Norm, Lee, Tad, and everyone else involved with Protodimension. Here’s to many more issues!
*And so y’know, Dark Conspiracy 3rd Edition is due out soon!

You read that right.
An outfit called Regret Games runs a series they call “saga games” at conventions and this year they’re running steampunk variants of a bunch of games, including Dogs in the Vineyard and Misspent Youth. My own 2001 release Little Fears is included in that batch. Here’s a snippet of the event description:
The child-engineers of the Undercity agree that the Overcity must be falling apart, what with all the broken pipes, ruptured valves and, worst of all, the coal lines exploding at random. Any Undercity kid can tell you the stories – the warnings – that if you don’t clean your face before you sleep, especially around your eyes, they will take you. If you’re lucky, you’ll come back in a day or two, walking like a zombie and seeing the Undercity through new, coal-blackened eyes, and you won’t remember anything you once were. If you’re unlucky, well… that’s a story best left untold.
All the games take place inside the same world but are standalone adventures. So you can play event to hear one part of the story, or play all to get the big picture.
Sounds like fun to me.

The Fall 2010 issue of Protodimension Magazine is out and it features a very cool scenario for Little Fears Nightmare Edition called “The Truth about Mr. Taylor.” Written by Managing Editor Norm Fenlason, this “cul-de-sac adventure” takes players on a curious trip around the neighborhood and introduces an out-of-this-world monster I think your group will enjoy.
You can download the PDF of Protodimension Magazine #6 here. The LFNE scenario starts on page 58 but the rest of the magazine is no slouch either. If Issue 6 piques your interest, the entire back catalog is available for download as well. Check it out, there’s lots of good stuff in those pages (including material for the original Little Fears, if you’re so inclined).
Big thanks to Norm and the rest of the Protodimension team for their support of Little Fears Nightmare Edition. Protodimension is a good group of guys who support a lot of great horror and dark fantasy systems, both old and new. I look forward to what they cook up next.
