I recently bought the Laundry series by Charles Stross and thanks to that and Artw's constant efforts to encourage the stars to come right I'm really jonesing for some Call of Cthulhu/Delta Green action.

My boyfriend has been looking for a while to find a D20 to match the rest of his dice. You can see a picture of the matchy ones and the offending, not-quite-matchy 20 here. When we first got the set he just picked them all out of a little jar on the store counter. When he asked about getting a matching 20, the lady working there said Chessex wasn't making them any more. We've of course done some looking around on the 'net, but without even knowing the name of the style, it's been tough. Thanks!

I came across my old Space: 1889 books in my parents' basement over the holidays and took them back with me to the US. I'm considering starting a campaign in that universe, but set during the War of 1914-18. Considering the different history and technology how do progress the setting into a Great War like scenario that's both true to the Space: 1889 universe as well as the real First World War?

My friend mentioned a free table-top RPG that was available as a pdf on the web. All the players were gods, and with a point system, would create a fantasy world together. There would be a series of turns, symbolizing epochs or ages of the world. I don't know the name or the authors. Anyone hear of it?
Help me find a (hopefully free and easy to use) tool that could be used to create and organize a Fantasy world for a Paper and Pencil Role Playing Game. Something like a hypertext database that fiction writers might use. [more inside]
