Add some topical highlights into the Yuletide mixing bowl and you have 90 minutes of festive Lovecraftian cheer!

Dark Crusades is a new Cthulhu Dark Ages monograph from Chaosium, offering the option of visiting and playing in the Holy Lands during that turbulent time.
The monograph first appeared at the NecronomiCon convention in August but quietly slipped out onto Chaosium's web site in early November (I'd given up looking out for it sometime in October).
If you're looking to expand your Cthulhu Dark Ages game into more exotic locales this may be just the thing, while rumours abound of a CDA 2nd edition in the works.

You may remember back in August Bret Kramer released issue zero of his new publication, The Arkham Gazette. Well, the first official issue (Issue 1: Arkham) has now been released by Sentinel Hill Press and you can get it now in PDF, for free.
Running to 58 pages, the first issue covers Arkham itself and includes an extremely handy annotated list of 60 published Cthulhu scenarios taking place around Lovecraft's witch-haunted town.

If you've been following our YSDC Twitter feed or some of the YSDC discussion threads recently, you'll know that Cubicle 7 are preparing to launch a crowd funding campaign to produce a London boxed set for Call of Cthulhu.
I took the opportunity to talk to Dominic McDowall-Thomas and Stuart Boon of Cubicle 7 about the forthcoming, Cthulhu Britannica: London.
