Uncle Al

I've been sick for over a week now, missing work.  I haven't done much besides sleep and cough, but I've done some reading and T&T prep work for the new campaign.  I've also watched movies and videos - something I normally only do once a week or sometimes even less.  Anyway, I've seen four documentaries on Uncle Al and his "son" Jack, which have a lot of great ideas for gaming: magic (or -k, as he would prefer), adventures and quests, grimoires, demons and entities, rituals, roguery, mind altering substances, wizard guild politics, romance (in all meanings of the word), betrayal, and so forth. So, I guess it hasn't been a total loss.

     Aleister Crowley: Legend of the Beast by Matthew Sheppard
     Aleister Crowley: The Beast 666 by Neil Charnaud
     In Search of the Great Beast 666 by Joss Ackland
     Jack Parson: Jet Propelled Antichrist by Daniel Zuckerbrot

Clearly, documentarians need to be a little more creative when titling their films....
