DM Inspirations: HorrorBabble


Between life, gaming, and even more gaming, juggling my schedule to fit in everything I want to do has been a challenge. Do I read my newest RPG setting book, or should I read this new core rule book for a new system I’ve been dying to try out? Or perhaps I should actually read a history book for the campaign I’m currently running? It’s a challenge for me, and I’m sure I’m not alone in this conundrum (or at least, I hope I’m not alone in this). More often than not, I end up spending the time I allocated for reading on deciding what I should read.

Running Call of Cthulhu games requires me to have a lot of knowledge of American & European history, and unfortunately for me, all the knowledge about the topic seems to have slowly slipped away as soon as I finished my high school exams. Add that to my reading list, and I find myself buried in an overwhelming mountain of reading backlogs. So when I came across this Youtube channel that reads Lovecraftian works & that of H.P. Lovecraft’s contemporaries, I was super excited to realize that I could do my household chores all the while absorbing information that I could later use in my games.


Horror Babble is a UK-based production company that does audio books, dramatic readings and music. They have a WIDE selection of books you can just pop on and listen to while you do your dishes, homework, exercises (I guess it’s a little too dreary for exercising, but hey, if it works for ya~), and a whole other slew of things. They’ve been SO helpful to me, and I hope this helps y’all too.

Well, that’s it for DM Inspirations–I’ll try to find more things that are helpful to GMs and players alike. Hit me up if you have any suggestions:!
