YSDC Server Fundraiser 2014

16 Apr 2014 10:36 AM | PoC in MAIN

To cut a fairly short story even shorter, it turns out that after many years "Olde Yoggie" is in need of a server upgrade (we've tried every trick to stave it off, but at some point you have to bite the bullet).

It's never a cheap thing to do a server upgrade, so to help raise a few funds towards it I'm auctioning off two Call of Cthulhu manuscripts from my shelves: Trail of Tsathoggua and Goatswood...

If you're interested in owning some original pieces of Call of Cthulhu history, then head over to the Yoggie forums now (until 2nd May).

Thorstein Staff-Struck: Combat Arena

02 Apr 2014 11:17 AM | PoC in MAIN

Not a headline you might normally expect to see on "Olde Yoggie" but back in February The Silver Lodge visited the 30th Jorvik Viking Festival to cover some of the events - for those who might like a little inspiration for their Cthulhu Dark Ages games.

In this video report, Val talks to Neil Tattersall and Stuart Perry of Northern Forge about Viking combat and their re-creation of the Thorstein Staff-Struck Icelandic saga.

Coincidentally this happens to be our 1,000th file offered through YSDC.

The Many Deaths of Edward Bigsby - Print Edition

26 Mar 2014 11:04 AM | PoC in MAIN

Wait, wasn't there a news item already about The Many Deaths of Edward Bigsby? Why yes, but this time it's to say that we now have a very limited, signed, numbered and sealed print edition available directly from Innsmouth House.

Limited to 50 copies and featuring material not available in the PDF edition (including a rather nice A3 [11.5"x16.5"] period colour map). You can pick it up now while stocks last!

Cthulhu Apocalypse: Slaves of the Mother

18 Mar 2014 02:40 PM | PoC in MAIN

Every so often a product seems to quietly slip out from publishers and it's only by serendipity (or reading the Yoggie forums) that you find it's been released at all (in my case, anyway).

So it seems to be with Cthulhu Apocalypse: Slaves of the Mother, the conclusion to Graham Walmsley's Cthulhu Apocalypse campaign for Trail of Cthulhu. Now out from Pelgrane Press, Slaves of the Mother contains the final three scenarios for the well-regarded series (Graham's writing duties taken over by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan).

Available now in PDF, with a possible print edition at some point in the future.

The Many Deaths of Edward Bigsby

25 Feb 2014 05:32 PM | PoC in MAIN

Something new for us, the move into scenario publication through Innsmouth House Press.

The Many Deaths of Edward Bigsby is a Trail of Cthulhu scenario from the talented pen of Adam Gauntlett (Not So Quiet, Sisters of Sorrow and others).

By special licence from Pelgrane Press we are now able to produce Trail scenarios in support of "Olde Yoggie" (thank you Simon Rogers, Adam and Pelgrane).

If you're a Bookhounds of London fan, then you'll find this scenario is compatible with that campaign.

All profits go directly to YSDC, so step up and support your favourite web site! (...or perhaps at least this one, anyway. ;-))
