Welcome to the late May 2018 issue of News from Pnakotus. Join Marty and me as we bring you the latest (ish*) news and views from Yog-Sothoth.

All aboard for News from Pnakotus!

So come, join us at our table for this 39th meeting of tea and terror, with the UK's longest-serving podcasters (has it really been nearly 14 years?)... we recommend scrambled eggs with mushrooms on toast and
Mimosas Bucks Fizz apparently...
Chaosium have launched a crowd funder for their first Lovecraftian board game in over 30 years (their last one was the original Arkham Horror in 1987). Their planned new board game is titled: Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection, and has been designed by Reiner Knizia (certainly no stranger to board game design).
In Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection, "Players are MU professors, desperately searching the treacherous Restricted Collection, looking for fragments of eldritch lore and arcane sigils to help the Chief Librarian, Dr Henry Armitage [to] defeat [a nameless horror unleashed by reckless grad students]..."
The Kickstarter runs until the 8th May, with a target of $25,000 USD.
