peat slippage, game idea

Reality can be so much more strange than fiction some times

This may or may not show up in my games now.

So much WTAF!?


What? Me worry?

That was bizarre, it would be funny, if it was not so serious?!

Still nature can be brutal as well as generous!!!

Re: peat slippage, game idea

I shared that with one of my online campaign groups and one of them shared this back

https://www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/wind-causes-forest-to-start-breathing-sacre-coeur-quebec-canada-october-2018/115245

Imagine running into that on a hike?

In the ensuing discussion this was brought up...by them :-)


"Your group sees the entire forest slides toward you at a sluggish, yet relentless pace..."

"well, s***."


"... as it turns out, it seems what caused the bog topmost strata to shift is the awakening of the Chaos Beast that was slumbering underneath."

"WELL, s***!"


What? Me worry?

Wow, who would have thought? Definitely making an appearance in my game soon!

Love it. It will happen in my game, too. ;)

Re: peat slippage, game idea

That is so crazy.  So many thoughts...I wonder if whiskey made from the barley, dried by the fires of the burning shifting peat, would be more lively!?  I want some...
