By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes – 2015 October RPG Blog Carnival

of Dice and Dragons - Something wicked this way comes

Update: The October Carnival is over, be sure to catch the wrap up article before you leave.

Welcome friends, it’s October and that can only mean one thing, the RPG Blog Carnival has arrived once again!

In past years we’ve sought out those spooky spots that the local towns folks like to avoid and talked about things that go bump in the night which kept you awake until morning.

This year there’s no escape as it will be coming to seek you out as the wicked come to you!

Instead of a house on the haunted hill, or that unexplained sound in the dark, it’s something that just may come to your door.

So share the tale of that wandering witch, the peddler that always seems to know just a bit too much, or the carnival with the many strange performers that’s come to town (sound familiar?).

Remember, it’s the month of All Hallow’s Eve, when the barrier between the worlds can be easily passed.

rpgblogcarnivallogoIf you decide to share a tale (or two, or three) be sure to link back to this post after your article goes live (adding a comment doesn’t hurt either) so all can enjoy it and I can include it in the wrap-up after I’ve run out of treats for the kids.




I’ll leave you with this trailer from 1983 Ray Bradbury movie, Something Wicked This Way Comes, to help inspire you.

I’m looking forward to seeing what I need to keep out of my town.

May your dice roll well!

Bonus points: The title of this blog post is a quote – from where? And it’s not the movie.

    Hi Scot,

    Thanks for hosting another great October Carnival.

    My contribution took your cue from the title, and wrote something to closely match the words of “the Scottish play”!

    It was an interesting challenge to write within these narrow restrictions. I hope you like the Midnight Hag.

    All the best
