This summer marks a quarter century since the first publication of one of the most famous supplements for Call of Cthulhu - Horror on the Orient Express. To mark the event I spoke to a "Mark" intimately involved in both the original 1991 edition of the campaign and its 2015 second edition - Mark Morrison.
What follows is a 40 minute interview discussing the
routes roots of Horror on the Orient Express, the emergence of the new edition and its reception during those intervening years. Mark also has a scoop to share with a new development regarding HotOE, so if you've ever played the campaign or are looking forward to running it (or just like it as a great story), then the following conversation may be of interest.
All aboard! All aboard the Orient Express!
Golden Goblin Press have launched their fifth Kickstarter, this time for Heroes of Red Hook, a Jazz Age fiction anthology comprising of cosmic horror short stories featuring immigrant, minority, female, LGBT, and other "outsider" protagonists.
This is GGP's largest fiction anthology to date with some 17 or more stories provided by a wide range of authors and it's planned to be available in print, electronic and collectors' editions. The Kickstarter is seeking $12,500 (US) in funding with an estimated delivery date towards the end of 2016.
The KS runs until 25th July.
Summer is almost upon us in The Cthulhu Breakfast Club as we exercise our imaginations regarding the weather, but all is bright and cheery as the CBC meets once more at Pickles Tea Rooms in Yorkshire to discuss:
Pulp Cthulhu, UK Games Expo 2016, The Cthulhu Hack, the Lovecraftian Horniman, Convicts & Cthulhu, beyond Unseen Masters, the great scone debate (Devon vs. Cornwall), would we survive a Call of Cthulhu scenario?, the Stationery Isle, amazing game rooms and more.
"Breakfast Clubbers" can vote in a new poll and we announce a change in the way we give away our wooden Dice Towers.
We look forward to you joining us at our table for the latest news, views and (sometimes rather tall) tales.
While Helen & I were at UK Games Expo 2016 (it's 10th anniversary) we took the opportunity to interview a number of Call of Cthulhu Publishers attending the event. The following are three interviews with Jon Hodgson of Cubicle 7, Chris Birch of Modiphius and Mike Mason of Chaosium, talking about their current lines and what they've got planned for the future.
As far as I know it's a first for such interviews to be shot in 4K 360/180º 3D "Virtual Reality" - something a little different anyway.
To upload the Chaosium interview I had to stand half way up a hill in the rain for half an hour. Oh the glamour of it all..!
Last weekend more than 8,000 people descended on UK Games Expo for three days of gaming in Birmingham, and we were among them.
While at the Expo we held another meeting of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club where we talked about the new venue, camera woes, The Dark Room, Chaosium at the Expo, child friendliness, Magikarp, GeeknSon gamer furniture, convention food and more.
We also recorded some video clips, so you can see Breakfast Club hosts in an ominous extra dimension! <Mwah-hah-hah-hah-hah!>
