Every book is a sourcebook, right? This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we travel down the darkened hedgerows of British folk magic traditions with a look at Of Shadows: One Hundred Objects from the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic (2016), from Strange Attractor Press. As the title says, this is a collection of objects selected by photographer Sara Hannant that present in all their shadowy glory a kind of whirlwind tour of occult and folk traditions of the British Isles. Beautiful in its own right, we talk about the ways it might resonate for folks who play RPGs.

One thought on “Of Shadows”
Loved the podcast, luckily in UK, we have a grading and listing system for historical properties, so older buildings (some building s from the sixties are getting listed) don’t get mashed or crushed or renovated…
