The Dictionary of Mu is up for pre-order, shipping in early January.
The Dictionary of Mu is a pulp fantasy setting supplement for Ron Edwards' Sorcerer RPG where demons are dead things, bits of history made wrong. Players will decide the fate of the planet through play, adding to the dictionary as they go and creating a deeper and richer history with every demonic summoning.
So I wrote a bit about the excellent Spaghetti Conjunction in Birmingham. https://realms.co.uk/blog/conventions/spaghetti-conjunction/
Given it's ten years old, I've put Pulp! my miniatures game of pulp action as Pay What You Want over on RPGNow. https://www.rpgnow.com/product/84262/Pulp?affiliate_id=2909

The ever excellent UK Games Expo (http://ukgamesexpo.co.uk/) is on this week. I'll be about from tomorrow, so if you see me say hi! Especially if you are a blogger/podcastery type and want to let me chat about The Queen's Men.
So The Queen's Men, my RPG homage to TV shows from the 70s and Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace is out now in PDF form https://realms.co.uk/blog/news/the-queens-men-is-out-now/
So yeah, the art for The Queen's Men is pretty great. Here's a teaser:
Peter Pound’s concept art for Fury Road is even better than you’d think.
Guildball is not the best game, but the miniatures are all wonderful and have a diversity that puts many games to shame.
Oh, and is anybody here going to be at #dragonmeet in December?
#introduction : Hi, I'm Matt. I play lots of games and occasionally design them. You may remember me from such games as Covenant, The Agency and The Filthy Dozen.
Currently working on The Queen's Men, which is Elizabethan Spies via 1970s TV, and owes a fair bit to series like Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.
