A Crappy way to show the Crappiness of crappy suburbia, I assume. I've never lived in suburubia. I imagine probably like this based on television.
Hey this is probably perfect as either a suburb for Troika! the city, and/or whatever Troikawave cities there are in Prismot (which might also be suburbs of Troika just more 80s).
I guess Crapland is like 90s suburbia. Troikagrunge.
This legit looks the way the chitin sounds when crunched
John Plane couldn't make it one Minunte in the Creek, but at least we solved th emystery of who John's mother is.
It's always the creek
Every time I look at this, I am both soothed by its chill and calming aesthetic, and enraged at how good it is.
A more streamlined and lighter take on traversing the Humpbacked Sky.
PROBABLY COMPATIBLE with Aetherjack's Almanac.
I feel like I got mugged by a wizrad, and they shoved a photocopy of their grimoire in my pocket.
Reminds me of several of notebooks and is a good use of the "oops coffee in my book" style rings
Brian Yaksha's "The Catlands Jazzband Gazeteer" is a setting book, intended specifically for Troika! but hey, its mostly tables about things and people and happenings. So you can use it for basically anything.
So you see the cover and it's got some cute cat pictures, most of the art is cute. This is gonna be cute and light hearted right? HAHA.
No. Catland not someplace you want to be; it's someplace you want to escape while you still have your human facilities. It feels like home, in as much as a soggy place can feel like my home which is all places to be from, and pass through, but not places to live lest you allow the place to truly work on you and change you to fit it, oh yes the desert may seem lovely but.....
Ahem, where was I....Oh yes.
Or not. You could become cattish, which not as good as being a cat. But probably better than not being any kind of cat.
Honestly, I want to go to Catland. I want to go there and see the cattish and the cats. I want to go there and look into the eyes of the cats so sure and smug of their superiority so that they might feel some inkling of how no matter what their station in the Catlands, they are a cat, a kitty cat.
But to visit the Catlands to become susceptible to the wiles and whims of these cats.
But who knows.
Every time I read this book, I see what may be different parts of Catland, or may be entirely different Catlands.
All of this being written, the book tells you want it's for, in as much as anything can be anything, and especially in as much as a cat be meant for anything. And to me it is very clear that Brian has known a great many cats.
Finally, and as much as this may pain our dear author, it is probably the most Ghibli inspired game thing I've ever read.
A delightfully light take on traveling space for Troika! by flicking tokens. Also as a bonus, space whales!
So good, I don't know if I need to bother with interplanetary travel rules for the rest of Aetherjack's Almanac.
