Cold Warning - 7 Day Kickstarter from GGP

25 Mar 2017 04:12 PM | PoC in MAIN

Golden Goblin Press have launched a "flash" crowd funder for Cold Warning, a Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition scenario by Scott David Aniolowski. The initial goal of $7,000 USD has already been met in less than a day.

 

Cold Warning is described as a lengthy Jazz Age adventure featuring internal art by Reuben Dodd of Sorrowking Studio and maps by Stephanie McAlea of Stygian Fox.

 

The Kickstarter concludes on the 1st April so if you want to support it, you'd better be (relatively) quick!

CBC#025: Dicey Situations

21 Mar 2017 01:13 PM | PoC in MAIN

The March 2017 edition of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club is out and we're joined at our table once again by BigJackBrass (Jon Hancock). In this meeting we talk about:

 

RPG purchasing dilemmas, Brotherhood of the Beast (deluxe) giveaway, nice dice, AireCon IV (report), Marty and The Two-Headed Serpent, luxury RPGs and other sundry topics.

 

Yes, to mark our 25th CBC (and two years of gatherings) up for grabs is a Brotherhood of the Beast Deluxe Edition, courtesy of the HPLHS. Someone's going to be rather lucky...

 

The Cthulhu Breakfast Club is recorded in Ambisonic sound, with a clarity so sharp you can hear the teacakes being buttered in front of you. Come, join us at our table, it's just we and thee at Breakfast Club!

AireCon IV: Recorded Conversations

15 Mar 2017 01:07 PM | PoC in MAIN

Last weekend a number of Cthulhu Breakfast Club hosts attended AireCon IV in the elegant spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire. AireCon is a relatively new board games convention (with some roleplaying) and as it was fairly close by we took the opportunity to see what was going on and to talk to a few people there.

 

What follows are a series of audio recordings I made over the Friday and Saturday (10th & 11th March), with fellow Yoggie hosts, patrons, event organisers and Cthulhu gaming publishers.

 

You can listen to the recordings here on this page, or pick them up on the YSDC podcast feed (direct / iTunes).

 

Review: We had a great time. Recommended. (We'll no doubt talk about it further in Breakfast Club.)

NfP#041: Clueless

13 Mar 2017 03:54 PM | PoC in MAIN

Welcome to another News from Pnakotus – the Lovecraftian and Cthulhu news show from YSDC!

Marty & I return to our usual table at the delightful Pickles' Tea Rooms in Baildon to bring you the latest mythos mutterings, horror headlines and Lovecraftian lowdowns, plus we share the secret of our editorial policy (hint: see the title of this episode).

Like a number of our other shows, NfP is a rare beast among a universe of podcasts: 1) We record and dine in a set of Tea Rooms, 2) We're the world's only podcast recorded in Ambisonic sound. Whatever people may think of our particular productions - we're rarely mundane.

So, come join us now (if you weren't around for the live broadcast) as we pour eldritch entertainment(?) into ears once more.

The Whisperer in Wax - Returns

01 Mar 2017 03:22 PM | PoC in MAIN

Over five years ago (indeed, March 2011) we produced a quite unique object in the world of Lovecraftian props - an actual wax cylinder recording made to fit with one of H.P. Lovecraft's most famous tales, The Whisperer in Darkness. We sold out of our original run a long time ago but in resurrecting our little shop of cosmic horrors we decided to bring this item back to wonderful waxy life.

 

The Whisperer in Darkness cylinder is available to purchase once again (in very limited numbers) and is just waiting for a spin on your mandrel! If you don't own a cylinder player (though I know some here actually do), then you can see the wax cylinder in action, coutresy of The British Library.

 

Never mind the "Vinyl Revival", show your friends what real audio history is made of! ;-)
