Halloween 2021: Day 34

The Modern Prometheus

  • 1.5 oz gin
  • 1.5 oz genever
  • 1 oz sloe gin
  • 0.5 oz velvet falernum
  • 0.5 oz simple syrup
  • 0.75 oz grapefruit juice
  • 0.75 oz lime juice
  • 0.125 oz absinthe
  • dash cinnamon bitters

This variation on the Zombie by Martin Cate starts with three gins instead of rum and ends up more citrusy and herbal than the tropical original.

Horror on the Orient Express (Call of Cthulhu 7E), Chaosium Inc.

I knew Gaspar Keshishyan was not long for this campaign, but I did hope he would last for more than one sanity roll. Alas, it was not to be; losing 24% of his sanity points at once drove him over the edge that he was teetering on after the loss of his daughter. Enter Hovik Keshishyan, the final family member, who is both the fighting-est and prettiest.

Hoarfrost by Jordan L. Hawk (Whyborne & Griffin #6)

Whyborne gets to share his POV character spotlight with Griffin this time around, as they journey deep into the Alaskan wilderness to find Griffin’s long-lost brother and save him from potential sorcerous danger.
