Another public release episode of Me, MyShelf & I. In this edition I take a look at the Call of Cthulhu 7e rules set from Chaosium.
As I mention at the start of the video, Me, MyShelf & I is not so much a review programme but rather, a series of overviews and distinctly personal opinions (as you may have gathered from its title).
In the following you’ll find my initial comments on Chaosium’s new rules for its venerable RPG; the first major update in over 30 years.

Just before Gen Con Chaosium have released a proof copy of their 7th edition Call of Cthulhu rules set (both the Keeper's Rulebook and the Investigator's Handbook).
The PDF proof edition is available for free to Kickstarter project backers and $499.95 (US) to everyone else. Download it now from Chaosium's web site.
The proof copy is sans index but one is promised for the final release. The print version of the rules are due out for Hallowe'en 2014.

Chaosium have been selling PDF versions of their game titles for a long time, but now they've started selling electronic versions of their literary titles as well.
Utilising MOBI, EPUB and PRC formats (as well as PDF) Chaosium have made a range of their fiction publications available for purchase directly from their web site. You can pick up titles now in your favourite electronic format from $6.95 (US).
I also note that with Chaosium's recent web site update they've formed the habit (as per DriveThruRPG etc.) of displaying one price then apparently slashing it to show the "bargain" price. It's fooling no one, y'know.

Tickets are now available for the third YSDC Games Day, on Saturday 20th September 2014 in Yorkshire.
This time the gaming doesn't stop at the end of the day - but continues on with a separate event: The YSDC Games Night!
So if you're in the vicinity why not avail yourself of the opportunity to play some great games with like-minded people? Tickets are selling and we already have attendees from the UK, US and Sweden.
Come, join us for a day of play.

Another former Chaosium (2005) MULA monograph makes its way to full publication with the release of Ripples from Carcosa by Oscar Rios.
Ripples... presents three scenarios based around the mythology of Hastur along with an overview of the Great Old One, the play and Mythos tome: The King in Yellow, and further information on Hastur and his cults during the Roman and Dark Age periods.
Chaosium's 2014 release also sees a line-by-line re-edit of the original monograph complemented with new art, handouts and maps.
This supplement for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition is available now in PDF, directly from Chaosium's web site.

Cubicle 7 Entertainment have released their first supplement for their World War Cthulhu setting for Call of Cthulhu. Europe Ablaze is an adventure anthology containing six scenarios set during the Second World War.
As usual it's out now in PDF with the print edition to follow in September (I'm going to stop saying there's a print version due later as it's pretty much standard form now from the major publishers).
It's not clear if the print release will be softcover or hardcover but it is £19.99.

Out from Arc Dream Publishing is The Unspeakable Oath #24, available in both print & PDF formats (print due 10th August). TUO #24 offers up a slew of new resources for players of Call of Cthulhu.
I must say a very nice cover by Todd Shearer for this issue, though not necessarily relating to the contents inside (as discussed in the Yoggie forums).
Anyway, you can pick up the PDF edition right now if you don't want to wait for print.
