This is the season of the Forge of Days – the hottest August day in the UK for the last decade – so here’s something apposite for you.
I get asked a lot how I got into games. I always feel unhelpful when I tell my story, because it’s such an unconventional and such an unrecommendable one. But it goes like this.
Below is the current list of places featured in EXILE (excluding the Priory of Captains, the Pentapolis and the other final destinations). Mid-1920s European history is fascinating, and butts in unexpected ways against what we know of Europe after WWII.
This is probably the question I’ve been asked most over the years, and every time as soon as I answer it I think of someone I’ve left out. So here’s a semi-permanent list that answers the question.
Once again, here’s how Weather Factory is doing, here’s how we thought we’d be doing, and here’s what we’re doing next. Welcome to this year’s Giant Summary Post! This is almost twice the length of the post-2018 State of the Factory, because a lot happened. Come for the kitten pictures, stay for the data. As […]

But for those who are interested, this is from a Slack discussion about how the content framework in Book of Hours (which we’re calling ‘Vak’) looks like it’ll differently from the content framework in Cultist Simulator (retrospectively […]
We haven’t posted for a bit, and I don’t think Lottie is going to manage a sprint update this week unless she works over the weekend which she definitely ain’t doing, so I wanted to talk about what’s been happening.
