I am terrible for wasting time surfing the internet. In my travels I am always finding articles, new stories and snippets of idea that make me think “I have to run a game about that!” This is clearly just a wafer thin excuse to justify my web addiction.
Here are my top articles for inspiring RPGS this week:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/19248230 – Insects who have their behaviour programmed from birth by a song. You cannot make this shit up!
Read this wikipedia article about the family who invented Nutella very carefully.
I have always thought that this phrase in particular…
“The company places great emphasis on secrecy, reportedly to guard against industrial espionage. It has never held a press conference and does not allow media visits to its plants. Ferrero’s products are made with machines designed by an in-house engineering department.”
had great potential for sparking ideas for a role-playing game. Okay, in my head it is obviously a Cthulu game where the Ferraro plant houses a Great Old One. But your mileage may vary.
If any of these ideas make it into your game then please comment below and let me know – I really want to know I am not the only one who thinks like this!
