I'd bought the music for the journey, and commented that we were basically listening to the soundtrack to 'my' World of Darkness. My friend returned that as he'd only ever played World of Darkness games that i'd run, he fully agreed.
Which was good. It meant I was being consistent, at least with the back ground music I played.
So, thinking about this, may I present to you what I think the World of Darkness looks like.
|The cover to the Gutter Twins "Saturnalia" album|
|Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan - The Gutter Twins|

|Tom Waits and somebody who looks like Iggy Pop, but probably isn't|
|NightHawks by Edward Hopper|
This came up on a Tom Waits search, which is good, as I wanted to include it
|Edward Hopper's New York Movie|
|Castiel, from Supernatural. Note the occult symbols in the background|
I had to wade through tonnes of 'Wincest' images to get this
|The shadows, poor lighting, squalor and constant rain in Se7en fit|
nicely within 'my' World of Darkness
|The Paper Street house from Fight Club|
I am also prepared for long time players of my games to (correctly) point out that until about 2004, all my games were set in small towns and backwaters.
In a future post I intend to talk about what my World of Darkness sounds like, once I decide on the best way to link / embed music and video
