re: The Encyclopaedia of Hell

It's been awhile since I've posted in this sub-forum, but I've sort of found myself there...again.

You see, when I joined the RP guild, Servants of the Tribunal, I thought that folks would be doing a parody or satire of the game lore religion. Uh....no...

Where I really tripped a wire and tripped over my male member was when I responded to a long Required Reading forum post called, Heresy and You - A Guide. I gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up, said it was hilarious religious satire, and recalled my favorite book of religious satire. 

Uh....it wasn't intended as....ummm.....satire.

But I still love the book it reminded me of.

One of my childhood friends was a guy who got way more in the pre-birth checkout line than the rest of us: Martin Olson. He could write, write brilliantly, write for several very known comedians, he wrote screenplays and made a living at it, he was one of the creators of a cartoon series called Sponge Bob (never got into it myself, but others did), plus he is an accomplished musician and composer.

Shortly after the turn of the century he started send me drafts of something he called The Invasion Manual. This was, in my opinion, the most brilliant piece of cultural and religious satire I'd ever read. But it wasn't until 2011 that he finally got around to publishing it.

I'm sure it can be had for free somewhere by now, but this link will give you at least the flavor of the book.

Encyclopaedia of Hell

CAUTION. If you do, somehow, take religion seriously, or even take game lore fiction religion seriously, DO NOT CLICK THAT LINK!!!!
