You're Either an Elf or a Pointy-Eared Cosplayer

 When it comes to playing nonhumans, the mainstream #dnd5e route is to just treat them all as if they were only humans in cosplay. That's the lamest possible choice, born from a rejection of mythic concepts.

What's Wrong With Most 5e D&D Players

 The reason they're taking away heroism from D&D, and the reason why WoTC is calling short adventure books 'settings', and the reason why even well-meaning 5e players seem totally lost about the real RPG experience, can all be explained by one simple statistic.

How An Invisible College Campaign Would Look in Argentina

 Someone asked if in The Invisible College #OSR #ttrpg you have secret societies controlling entire countries:

I will point out is that with very few exceptions (I could see a scenario of North Korea or Iran's governments being fully in control of the Gormogons, for example), almost all areas of our modern world are currently battle grounds between the factions. That is, no single faction has total control, and in most cases of the biggest institutions (governments, for example) has even got majority control.

So as the conspiracy mechanics in the appendix to the game try to convey, different factions' power will rise and wane, and groups will use their power to try to fight it out, while controlling smaller institutions and movements and moving them as playing pieces in the occult war.

So I could totally see, for example, the Peronista party in Argentina being totally controlled by the Typhonians, while other groups would still be trying to stop their total takeover of Argentina as a whole.
So the Invisible College would be trying to control the pro-democracy pro-liberty movements in Argentina (like Javier Milei's movement),
the Black Lodge the far-right Argentinian parties and the military that still has pro-Junta sentiments,
the Gormogons control most (but not all) of the Catholic Church and powerful Catholic Lobby,
the Rationalist Gormogons the Communists,
the Choronzon Club controls most of the drug trade (in deals with the Santa Muerte Negra) and human trafficking,
and of course the Order of Thule still has secret nazi bases in the border regions of the country.
The Nemites might control the powerful Psychiatric profession in Argentina (Argentines go to therapy per capita more than anyone else on earth, and yet they only seem to get crazier and crazier, so that might be because the Nemites are running it as part of a plan to eventually turn everyone into bug-people).
