And Things That Go Bump in the Night

Rolling right along with the horror theme, here's another character sheet. This one is for the first edition of Palladium's Beyond the Supernatural ("BtS"). If memory serves, this was the first game I played with the folks who would become my game group for over 20 years. (And the session in which I was reintroduced to Terry (aka Theron) - the youngest brother of my best friend from my school years, Brian Z - who would become one of my best friends ever.) That first session was only the second or third horror game in which I played - but it would turn out to be the first of literally countless others. I therefore have a nostalgic fondness for this game. (And I love that Corben cover art!)

BtS is not the perfect game, nor is the Palladium system the perfect system. But it is a fun game - and I can't even begin to count how many hours of enjoyment I've gotten from the Palladium system, via mash-ups of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninjas & Superspies, Heroes Unlimited, Nightspawn/-bane (I got the book before the McFarlane hissy fit) and BtS.

Ah, good times...
