A note on Blog Goals/Mission Statement, and Sirkeci Station

Being a long-time fan of horror films, I've found that increasingly the genre of "horror" is dominated by non-stop violence, blood and gore (the 'Saw' series for example).  They use a sledgehammer of unpleasantry, while I much prefer more mundane settings that have something horrific lurking just out of sight (1944's "The Uninvited" for example).

So, one of my goals for this blog is to post mostly relatively mundane things to help game masters set the stage for their players.  Photographs, posters, printable money, etc.  From time to time, I'll try to address some of the more horrific aspects of Horror on the Orient Express, but thats not going to be the main focus of this blog.

Without any more philosophizing, heres a picture of Sirkeci Station, which served as the terminus of the Orient Express in Constantinople.
