YSDC: A Decade of Podcasting

30 Oct 2014 11:19 AM | PoC in MAIN

It seems no time at all since I first heard about a useful new way to distribute Yoggie content: Podcasting - it was worth a try, you never know, it might catch on...

Fast forward 10 years (today) and we've come a fair way (with a fair way still to go). Since 2004 we've produced hundreds of hours of audio (and video), ranging from game recordings, shows, interviews, newscasts and documentaries. It turns out we are the longest serving podcasters in the UK.

We've always tried to produce the best quality content that we can and that ethos still continues. If you've enjoyed the last decade of podcasts (and other media), thank you for joining us and do tune in for next 10 years (we hope)!

28 Oct 2014 05:22 PM | PoC in MAIN

Paradigm Concepts have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of two full colour hardback books for Cthulhu: Strange Aeons, a new sci-fi setting for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

Set in the 22nd century, “…the setting posits what one potential future might look like, including its technology, society, and culture, by extrapolating ‘bleeding-edge’ research and speculation…”

Contributors to Cthulhu: Strange Aeons include a host of names that will be no doubt familiar to regulars of YSDC. Discussion about C:SA can be found in the following Yoggie forum thread: Cthulhu: Strange Aeons Announced.

The long-rumoured Delta Green RPG is one step nearer to reality with Arc Dream Publishing announcing an open play test of the new rules set.

You can be part of the play test by downloading the freely available documents and reporting back by 23rd November.

There’s already discussion about the play test in the Yoggie forums.

Cold Harvest from Chaosium

17 Oct 2014 03:25 PM | PoC in MAIN

Chaosium have released Cold Harvest, a Call of Cthulhu scenario by Chad Bowser set in 1930s Soviet Russia.

The 68 page supplement has been made available in PDF form (in advance of the print edition) to backers of Chaosium’s Horror on the Orient Express and Call of Cthulhu 7th edition Kickstarters as an apology for the new set of delays in those projects' releases.

Cold Harvest describes itself as “…very low-key and investigative in nature. The intent… to write a scenario playable by one Keeper and one player that also scales up for larger groups.”

Available now for Chaosium Kickstarter backers (and likely soon for everyone else).
