What an amazing game

I purchased Hoodoo Blues sometime close to when it was published. At the time, I flipped through it, read a few sub-sections, put it on my bookshelf, and forgot about it.

Recently, I've been running an Angel RPG game in which one of the NPCs is a "hoodoo woman". Knowing essentially nothing about "hoodoo", I took this game off the shelf and read it. This time, I was blown away by the exquisite level of setting detail and "flavor" presented in the game. Hoodoo Blues really is *the* RPG for running an occult/horror/urban fantasy game set in the southeastern USA, and it really merits much more recognition and acclaim in the RPG world.

Thanks Bob! My coauthor and I did put a lot of research into the book, so what you see in the pages is, to the best of our ability, legit Southern folklore. I even took much of the same text, stripped of the RPG parts, and published it as the Writer's Guide to the Supernatural South. I am working on a sourcebook for Hoodoo Blues, although it takes the game in a direction that I don't think anyone will anticipate.
