Politics and Horror

I have not purchased a RPG book in ages. But a couple weeks ago I heard very positive things about about a guide to creating horror settings, and I bought an inexpensive copy.

Since I have no interest in running a horror campaign, why would I want the book? Because of something perhaps insightful I read online a few days prior. A veteran GM said the types of planning that created a well-made horror setting were precisely those that made good political intrigue.

It was a very well-written book. Reading it helped me brainstorm a long list of how the two settings of political intrigue and horror relate.
