Something for the season...
A little over five years ago we published Nick Marsh's adaptation of our Horror on the Orient Express campaign play-through. The book was The Express Diaries. The novel received critical acclaim both for Nick's storytelling and Eric M. Smith's artwork.
The Express Diaries went out of print some time ago and can now command a high price on the second-hand market. Missed out on this incredible story? Fear not, we're making it free for everyone to read, so now you too can follow the adventures of the iconic* Violet Davenport, Betty ("The Silver Fox") Sunderland, Col. ("Never") Goodenough, the notorious Professor Moretti and others in this rare trans-media production.
Welcome to a world of Lovecraftian Locomotive Horror...
*Characters appear in the 2nd edition of the Horror on the Orient Express campaign from Chaosium.
Chaosium have announced the impending launch of the Miskatonic Repository: "...a new way for creators to publish and distribute their own original Call of Cthulhu content including scenarios, settings, spells and more..."
Creating for Miskatonic Repository involves formatting your material using Chaosium's design template and uploading the finished PDF to DriveThruRPG where you can distribute it for free or sell your work along the same rules and revenue split as the Dungeon Masters' Guild for Dungeons & Dragons.
Chaosium have called the new platform a "launching site for new talent" - so keep your eyes peeled if writing Call of Cthulhu scenarios (and getting paid for it) is something you've been considering.
On occasion I highlight one of our podcast episodes on the Front Page of YSDC, in this case it's the latest edition of News from Pnakotus our "Lovecraftian News & Views" show. Episode #053
is was out on YSDC's public podcast feed where anyone can pick it up (until another one comes out - which it has).
To my mind this is probably the first time that we've come somewhere near to what I was hoping to achieve with the return of NfP earlier this year.
If you're curious to know more read on.
