The September 2016 edition of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club is now out in all the usual places and featuring a larger complement of hosts than the last meeting (which wouldn't be difficult). This time the CBC visits the Royal Armouries in Leeds to discuss all matters Lovecraftian and more - including talk of:
Sound recording, the eternal scone debate, The Curse of Nineveh, remote gaming and virtual reality, the Stationery Isle, YSDC Games Day V, Sun Spots and The Gods' War Kickstarters, Mansions of Madness (board game) 2nd edition, Brotherhood of the Beast, Pickman's Guest, The Nightmare Stacks, Gen Con 2016 Chaosium seminar, marrying Icelandic women, World War Cthulhu: London, Helen in British Archaeology magazine, Hooten & the Lady, The Things We Leave Behind and Agatha Christie mystery stamps among other things.
Dave Sokolowski of Weird 8 has launched a Kickstarter to see the release of Sun Spots, a Call of Cthulhu scenario set in 1920s New England that was originally due to be released by Miskatonic River Press in Keith "Doc" Herber's The Outer Gods supplement. Sadly it never saw fruition but that which can eternal lie... means that Sun Spots has a new chance of life through crowd funding.
Art for the project has been commissioned from the likes of Jason Eckhardt, Reuben Dodd, Caleb Cleveland and Chris Huth with maps and layout by Jake Coolidge and Gregory G. Geiger.
Our old friends at the HPLHS have announced another new direction for their popular Dark Adventure Radio Theatre series. Following on from the recent release of a new Lovecraftian-style story, The White Tree, the HPLHS are now producing a 1930s-style radio play based on Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu campaign The Fungi from Yuggoth.
Planned for a Hallowe'en 2016 release, The Brotherhood of the Beast will provide nearly four hours of listening entertainment and features four different endings following alternative characters and plans.
Very much looking forward to hearing this one!
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015, The Things We Leave Behind, a modern day scenario anthology for Call of Cthulhu from Stygian Fox Publishing has now been released to backers in PDF.
The Things We Leave Behind features
five six scenarios recommended for mature readers (and perhaps players) from the pens of Jeffrey Moeller, Brian Sammons, Simon Brake, Scott Dorward and Oscar Rios, with art by Davide Como and Stephanie McAlea.
The anthology has retail PDF and print releases planned for September.
In this August CBC there is talk of the Bettys experience, YSDC Games Day V, ENnies 2016, the Golden Ticket game, Panacea, Pulp Cthulhu: Waiting for the Hurricane, Chaosium Gen Con 2016 seminar, The Curse of Nineveh, Dragonroar and D&D tapes, 1980s text adventures, a 1920s guide to Bruges and the Stationery Isle among other things.
Recorded at Pickles Tea Rooms (within and without) - including 4K 360º video.
