YSDC Games Day V

28 Jul 2016 11:21 AM | PoC in MAIN

Can it be that time of year again? It is!

 

Tickets for YSDC Games Day V (& Games Night) are now available from our online shop.

 

So come join us if you can for a day (and evening) of Lovecraftian games in the heart of Yorkshire. As usual this is a limited availability event that happens just once a year, so if you want tickets better to get them sooner rather than later.

 

It should be fun. :-)

Cthulhu Breakfast Club: Tarts & Rascals

19 Jul 2016 03:13 PM | PoC in MAIN

The Cthulhu Breakfast Club goes on its first outing (or rather a different "inning") in this July 2016 edition of YSDC's podcast.

 

In this meeting we talk about playing Pulp Cthulhu, more on kids and roleplaying, the upcoming YSDC Games Day V, the Heroes of Red Hook Kickstarter from Golden Goblin Press, Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The White Tree, electing Cthulhu, Children of Fear, the Mark Morrison interview about 25 years of Horror on the Orient Express, Unseen Masters and other various and sundry topics.

 

Recorded one fine day in a delightful part of Harrogate, Yorkshire.

 

To listen, become a supporter. For information, see: http://www.yog-sothoth.com/cbc

Unseen Masters Finalé

11 Jul 2016 02:14 PM | PoC in MAIN

After more than a year at the table, YSDC's play-through of Chaosium's Unseen Masters campaign for Call of Cthulhu finally reaches its conclusion. This marks the completion our our eighth major campaign, all of which are on record.

 

Unseen Masters has proved to be one of the most mind-warping campaigns we've ever played, and our gratitude goes to Val for running an excellent game as our Keeper of Arcane Lore. To commemorate the event I've created a short end-of-campaign video highlighting moments from play - which you can watch here - and because we have the deepest "actual play" archives in the world, Patrons of Yog-Sothoth can also listen to another ending to the Unseen Masters campaign which Val ran in 2004.

The Section 46 Operations Manual is available now to backers of the World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter and will be on general sale in a few weeks.
