Panty Explosion is better than it has any right to be. I love it. I'm not sure how I feel about the system, but man, I wish I'd had it when I started my CthulhuHigh PBEM. This game is set in a high school that exists in four different cities, with magical gates between the campuses. One of the cities is Fukuoka. I could so have used the information on Japan when I started running this game, and it will be useful if the game keeps running. I picked up Classroom Deathmatch because of Panty Explosion. Oh, I got Panty Explosion at Games of Berkeley, which has a lovely selection of indie games.

Reign. I'm not enamoured of ORE or crunchy systems, but I love Greg's writing, and the world building is great.

House of Horiku. An interesting game. I'm not sure if I'll ever play it, but it's got my brain thinking.

I'm in the process of reading Changeling: The Lost. This has a much tighter focus than Changeling: The Dreaming, and that really helps the game. I'm not sure about some of the mechanics, and I've the usual White Wolf problems with the system. I'm not sure about this whole courts business. But, the premise is solid and beautiful. The art is wonderful. And, unlike Mage, this is a book I can physically read.
