A couple weeks ago at PaizoCon UK, Richard Pett ran a playtest of the Brandon Hodge Blight add-on adventure The Crooked Nail. In support of that playtest, Brandon made a promo video for Rich to show his group during the playtest. I just saw the video myself for the first time today and felt compelled to share it with you, our loyal backers, in return for all your support (though it could possibly also be because of Brandon's uncannily hypnotic gaze).

Consider yourself forewarned.

Some thoughts:

  • 1. Brandon is terrifying.
  • 2. His adventure is terrifying.
  • 3. Where was he when he filmed this video?!?!?!

We'd like to thank the playtesters who endured this abomination at PaizoCon UK. Richard included a fine epitaph in memory of his playtesters in the credits.

What's that you say? Did the playtest result in a TPK?

No, no, silly hypothetical questioner; there was no TPK. It was the playtesters being memorialized. All of the PCs survived, but the playtest group had a 100% mortality rate...I mean, if you consider complete brain death and/or endless catatonic chanting to an unknowable entity to be a form of death. I suppose it depends on how fine you slice your definitions.

Anyway, a good time was had by all, I'm sure. And I heard that Richard even ascended to the next rank within his order...Third Degree Hooded Master of Chaos or some such thing.

Alright, well that's it for now. Until next time, stay out of Richard's basement. No seriously, you don't want to go in that guy's basement. Just don't.

Update! We have just received information on the location where Brandon shot that video. Apparently he used his new baby's nursery for filming. So now that the mystery has been solved, I think we can all sleep a lot easier at night.

      ..and plus, the adventure is every bit as spooky as the video. So sorry Stewart Williams, Diane McGee, Claire McGee, Gary Monteith, Phil Lucas, Dawn Upson, Andy 'Jester' Brown and Vincent Colon-Roine, the victims who generously gave up a little piece of their lives playtesting it at Paizocon UK a few weeks ago. I understand Phil and Diane are still in the sanatorium, we wish them well.

      I'm particularly sorry to Vincent, who got touched by something unpleasant and fleshy more than was fair to him, I would like to publicly apologise Vincent. Heh heh.

      I honestly can't put into words how awesome Brandon is. He's such a star for doing this in the first place for Paizocon uk, but now we can share it I'm beyond happy. Enjoy!
