Comment: I am the explorer Extreme. Searcher of all things mysterious and interesting. FEAR ME.
I've just finished reading the Boxed Nightmares book today. Which means that I have got an interesting question for all of you: Has anyone read the Boxed Nightmares book, if so what're your thoughts on it??

Signed,

I enjoyed reading it. The framing device of a World Weekly Newspaper is epic '80s.

Agreed. One of Palladium's most clever releases!

Comment: Palladium Books Canon is set solely by Kevin Siembieda, either in person, or by his approval of published material.
I liked it.
It has found a lot of use in my games. If not for the specific adventures, but for stuff to be mined (the Doppleganger Entity or the Devouring Horned Lizard-Beast for instance)

I have used the organization generation table in many a game as well.

Yeah, I just wish Palladium hadn't printed which stories go with which adventure in the paper. That way there you could have kept the players guessing which ones were the actual adventures.

Nothing stops a GM from making an adventure about one of the other stories

If the GM has made actual adventures too, there is no way for the players to know which stories are adventure leads and which weren't.

I had this years ago, but lost it somewhere along the line sadly. I loved boxed nightmares, especially the organization generation rules and the adventure linked tabloid - I thought that was a really neat concept. The details of the supplement are hazy now, but If I ran another BtS game again, I would like to use the tabloid organization itself as a player connection / hook generator. Leads on weird happenings occasionally passed on to player investigators by one of the Reporters from After Midnight, something to that effect. Some interesting conspiracy theory elements that could come into play there.

Did you guys see that Palladium is doing a limited run of a few out-of-print books, Boxed Nightmares being one of them? That's pretty awesome! I wonder if the newspaper insert is going to be included in the special printing. Neat!
