Social Media Roundup, Week of 23 February—01 March 2014
Here are the five most interesting things from the Atlas Games social media this week.
- Edward Gorey's morbidly delightful art is an inspiration for Gloom. His collection of fur coats, many featured in his drawings, was recently auctioned off. We found a story of the event that doesn't end nearly as unhappily as one would expect.
- Robin Laws has been sharing his ideas for Feng Shui 2 on Twitter and his blog. Get the inside scoop on the redesign of this classic RPG!
- Historical Europe was more racially diverse than the history books usually teach. If you'd like to include a greater variety of people in your Ars Magica game, check out the Medieval People of Color tumblr for inspiration.
- Now that Once Upon a Time expansion Knightly Tales is heading out to stores, we're on the lookout for ways to add some chivalry to your fairy tales. Did you know that knights considered cutting off a horse's tail was a grave insult?
- If you'd like a daily dose of the gloomy and bizarre when you can't fit in a game of Gloom, we recommend following Cabinet of Curiosities (@wunderkamercast) on Twitter.
