Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion PDF

18 Jul 2017 09:33 AM | PoC in MAIN

If you don't know what the Masks of Nyarlahotep Companion is, then the MoNC KS thread in the forums will give you a pretty extensive history. It is in essence the largest support document for a single roleplaying campaign ever produced. Undertaken as a decade-long volunteer project by many generous and diverse hands as a fundraiser for YSDC, the completion of the KS has been drawing to a close.


The reception to this volume of encyclopaedic proportions and depth has been such that by agreement with Chaosium and the MoNC creators, the PDF version has now been put on sale, and through an extremely generous act by all involved the profits from those sales will directly benefit Yog-Sothoth.


The Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion is available directly (and exclusively) from Chaosium's web site. It is wonderful to know that this epic work, dedicated to one of the greatest roleplaying campaigns, will see life and appreciation beyond the Kickstarter.


Thank you to everyone who's been a part of this epic publication, and if you're planning to run Chaosium's Masks of Nyarlathotep, then the Companion may just be a handy thing to have...

The Yellow King RPG - Kickstarter

22 Jun 2017 01:58 PM | PoC in MAIN

Now on Kickstarter and already at double its funding goal after just a day, is The Yellow King RPG from Pelgrane Press, written by Robin. D. Laws.


"Inspired by Robert W. Chambers’ influential cycle of short stories, YKRPG pits the characters against the reality-altering horror of The King in Yellow. This suppressed play, once read, invites madness. Or a visit from its titular character, an alien ruler intent on invading and remoulding our world into a colony of their planet, Carcosa. Four books, served up together in a beautiful slipcase, confront your players with an epic journey into reality horror…"


Check it out on Kickstarter, and do keep a note, the estimated completion date for this project is December 2018.

Nineteen Years of YSDC - Set in Wax

19 Jun 2017 06:02 PM | PoC in MAIN

“Olde Yoggie”/YSDC/this web site passed its 19th year online last Friday (16th). In internet terms Yog-Sothoth is now quite a venerable beast and I try not to dwell on how many hours of my life have been spent working on it over the years. ;-)


Every so often we like to mark the birthdays with something novel (you may remember on Yoggie’s 15th birthday we gave away the Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion 0.9 beta). Well, this year, we have something a little different, and as far as I know a first…


A special wax cylinder recording of our podcast, The Cthulhu Breakfast Club. I said it was different!
