Conspiracy Theories

The OddBlog is both a stand-alone blog and a department on The Weirding. So while I made the announcement over to The Rundown (where I cover gaming, comics, and pop-culture stuff), I wanted to mention Dark Conspiracy @ The Weirding here, too.

I know a lot of you come here just for The OddBlog, and anyone who ends up here from The Weirding most likely went there looking for something unrelated, but Dark Conspiracy is one of those subjects that straddles the spectrum. After all, The Weirding is a collection of subjects I'm interested in and most of the people I've met through one of these interests or the other was invariably keen on the... others. Ahem.

ANYwho, I wasn't going to mention Dark Conspiracy @ The Weirding here until I covered the Mystery Copter in Tempe article:

The very first thing I thought about when I read the copter was a Vietnam-era copter flying circles in a residential neighborhood was all those stories about the Bermuda Triangle, alternate dimensions, and time-space continuums! I know, I know - and it's really not like I seriously thought any of these things were at=play, it's just where my mind wanders - and I love it! That's why I love Dark Conspiracy! Even if you are not a gamer, you might get a kick out of it:

Dark Conspiracy is set in a dark near future where the tabloid stories (the good ones - the old ones from the 80s, like "I was a Bigfoot's Love Slave" and shit) are real and the Dark Conspiracy is hiding all manner of ugly aliens, bent on world domination. It is so right up your alley if you enjoy this blog!

Of course, a lot of the content is gaming-related and you won't have any interest in that stuff if you don't play, but Metrodome is an entire domed city for extended (campaign) play, so there's a whole lot of it that can be read, more or less, as a story (without a linear narrative).

Anyway, I've spent a lot of time on it - that's why things got slow this week (I figured I could afford the time off, with the holiday and all) - and I'll be spending a lot more time on it from now on, so I figured I'd give it a plug, just in case.
