Achtung! Cthulhu: Elder Godlike

27 Jan 2016 05:15 PM | PoC in MAIN

Nearly three years ago, a relatively unknown publisher (Modiphius Entertainment) launched a Kickstarter to produce a new Cthulhu-based roleplaying line, Achtung! Cthulhu. It did rather well, raising over £177,000. A lot was promised in the crowdfunding campaign and a lot has been delivered; the latest of which is Achtung! Cthulhu: Elder Godlike, a crossover between A!C and Arc Dream's Godlike RPG.

 

"Elder Godlike is where the superhuman suspense of Godlike meets the cosmic terrors of Achtung! Cthulhu, introducing a whole new dimension of fantastic adventures to the Secret War". Written by Greg Stolze, Dennis Detailer and friends (originally titled, The Power of the Gods) it's currently available as a print/PDF bundle directly from Modiphius.

 

Since Modiphius launched its A!C Kickstarter in 2013, the publisher has been involved in a growing range of other properties including: Thunderbirds, Space 1889, Mutant Chronicles, Mindjammer, Fragged Empire, Mutant Year Zero, Corvus Belli - Infinity, Airfix and the upcoming new Conan roleplaying game.

As Above, So Below offers "rules and guidelines on incorporating special forces missions into your games", along with providing political possibilities for your scenarios and campaigns. Purchasing directly from the Cubicle 7 web shop means you also receive the PDF version for free.

 

"Sorcery is the continuation of politics by other means." (and often vice versa...)

Welcome to the January 2016 meeting of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club!

 

In this first meeting of the year we discuss "YSDC Super Screen 2" (Electric Boogaloo), can there ever be enough Cthulhu? Do limited print runs restrict access for future fans? - our favourite horror authors, and what we're looking forward to over the next few months.

 

- and how exactly do you pronounce bourbon?

 

Come, join us for 90 minutes (or so) of dining, drinking and discourse! As ever, we retain our laser-like focus on matters of the day....

YSDC Super Screen 2: GM on Fire!

12 Jan 2016 05:49 PM | PoC in MAIN

In early 2015 I released a short video about modifying a GM screen to conveniently display multimedia content to your players (the YSDC Super Screen). This was something I used to good effect in the later sessions of our Eternal Lies campaign.

 

A year on and I return to the project with a second video, demonstrating the original screen concept, what the 2016 version looks like, and what makes it significantly different from before.

 

Further discussion can be found in the following thread: The YSDC Super Screen!
