Ripples from Carcosa

15 Jul 2014 09:35 PM | PoC in MAIN

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.

World War Cthulhu: Europe Ablaze

15 Jul 2014 04:06 PM | PoC in MAIN

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.

The Unspeakable Oath 24

13 Jul 2014 03:17 PM | PoC in MAIN

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.

He Who Laughs Last for Cthulhu Dark

13 Jul 2014 02:59 PM | PoC in MAIN

Back in February, Dave Sokolowski of Weird 8 began a crowd funding project to produce He Who Laughs Last, a scenario for the Cthulhu Dark RPG.

Dave's Project was successfully funded, but if you missed out at the time you can now order the PDF version directly from DriveThruRPG and related sites.

Me, MyShelf & I: D&D 5e Starter Set

10 Jul 2014 03:05 PM | PoC in MAIN

The lazy days of summer (well, maybe if you’re the Innsmouth House cat) sometimes makes me recall the salad days of my youth playing Dungeons & Dragons with school chums during the holidays.

With the recent (pre)release of the D&D 5th Edition Starter Set I thought I’d take a peek and talk about it in an episode of Me, MyShelf & I.

So here you go, something a little different from YSDC for sunny July.

Cylindrica: Wax Cylinders of The British Library

30 Jun 2014 09:58 AM | PoC in MAIN

Those who can cast their memories back to YSDC in 2011 may remember that we released a wax cylinder recording based on H.P. Lovecraft's story, The Whisperer in Darkness.

If you ever wondered what exactly was on that cylinder, you can now find out, courtesy of this Silver Lodge special report where I interview Will Prentice, Head of Technical Services at the British Library Sound Archive about this particular (and relatively fleeting) sound format from a century ago.
