If you've been to the Gen Con or the PAX conventions recently you will have had the opportunity to pick up Pelgrane's latest Trail of Cthulhu release: Mythos Expeditions.
Mythos Expeditions is described as "...a collection of ten stand-alone adventures... with contributions from an eclectic mix of mythos experts, [and] is a great way to inject a taste of the exotic into an existing campaign, or to play as part of the Armitage Files campaign setting..."
If you didn't pick up a copy at a US convention you can now pre-order it directly from Pelgrane's online shop. It should enter normal distribution channels by early/mid September.

Modiphius Entertainment have released the completed PDF version of their Guide to the Eastern Front for Achtung! Cthulhu.
It's available to Kickstarter backers now (and likely as usual, elsewhere, soon). The 128 page publication promises to reveal the secret history of the war in Russia, provide new investigator templates, more nameless horrors and... tanks.
Modiphius have been releasing a steady stream of their Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter material but it can sometimes be difficult to ascertain exactly when something is officially "out" and released. The following is how we're defining it anyway...

It seems I'll be attending meetings in London on a more regular basis over the next few years. Never one to miss an opportunity I thought I'd also use my time in the capital to create a Silver Lodge Phone Diaries video series on "Lovecraftian London" loosely based around Paula Dempsey's The Book of The Smoke.
What follows is the first (short form) entry about The Atlantis Bookshop. As I'm travelling on other business I have to be highly mobile so this is all self-shot, handheld on my phone (so please forgive its rough & ready nature).
The next entry in the series is about The Monument (to the Great Fire of London), where I also manage to film the secret basement laboratory of Sir Christopher Wren and Dr. Robert Hooke...

Another public release episode of Me, MyShelf & I. In this edition I take a look at the Call of Cthulhu 7e rules set from Chaosium.
As I mention at the start of the video, Me, MyShelf & I is not so much a review programme but rather, a series of overviews and distinctly personal opinions (as you may have gathered from its title).
In the following you’ll find my initial comments on Chaosium’s new rules for its venerable RPG; the first major update in over 30 years.

Just before Gen Con Chaosium have released a proof copy of their 7th edition Call of Cthulhu rules set (both the Keeper's Rulebook and the Investigator's Handbook).
The PDF proof edition is available for free to Kickstarter project backers and $499.95 (US) to everyone else. Download it now from Chaosium's web site.
The proof copy is sans index but one is promised for the final release. The print version of the rules are due out for Hallowe'en 2014.

Chaosium have been selling PDF versions of their game titles for a long time, but now they've started selling electronic versions of their literary titles as well.
Utilising MOBI, EPUB and PRC formats (as well as PDF) Chaosium have made a range of their fiction publications available for purchase directly from their web site. You can pick up titles now in your favourite electronic format from $6.95 (US).
I also note that with Chaosium's recent web site update they've formed the habit (as per DriveThruRPG etc.) of displaying one price then apparently slashing it to show the "bargain" price. It's fooling no one, y'know.

Tickets are now available for the third YSDC Games Day, on Saturday 20th September 2014 in Yorkshire.
This time the gaming doesn't stop at the end of the day - but continues on with a separate event: The YSDC Games Night!
So if you're in the vicinity why not avail yourself of the opportunity to play some great games with like-minded people? Tickets are selling and we already have attendees from the UK, US and Sweden.
Come, join us for a day of play.
