News from Pnakotus: Born to the Dark

25 Sep 2017 02:07 PM | PoC in MAIN

We don't usually put notice of our podcast releases on the front page much these days but the past couple of weeks have seen exceptions due to their unusually noteworthy nature (such as The Cthulhu Breakfast Club with Mike Mason and the conclusion of our Call of Cthulhu campaign recordings). In this case, News from Pnakotus (our Lovecraftian news and views show) has just turned 50 [episodes].


It took us a little while to get there but we managed it in the end!


The current edition of News from Pnakotus can always be found on our public podcast feed, with the full archives available to our Patrons.

Now available to Patrons of Yog-Sothoth, the Innsmouth House Players' post-campaign discussion about their 17 session play-through of The Curse of Nineveh.


The release of this recording marks the completion and conclusion of 12 years of Yoggie Call of Cthulhu campaign play, through 10 epic adventures. All our Call of Cthulhu recordings (more than 500 hours of audio) are freely available to download from YSDC.


I would particularly like to thank Helen for being our Keeper of Arcane Lore and WaynePeters for his wonderful scene illustrations for our game.


It has been much fun and we're looking forward to what's coming next!

Out of the Woods

06 Sep 2017 11:00 AM | PoC in MAIN

Out of the Woods from Pelgrane Press is a new scenario anthology for Trail of Cthulhu with a particular sylvan focus...


"The shadowy depths of the primeval forest are the ancient source of our collective fears. But there is worse in the woods than timber wolves and fairy tales; you can lose not just your way, but your mind, too. This brand new collection of Trail of Cthulhu adventures explores hidden groves and endless avenues – the hideous soul of Lovecraft's forest."


Featuring five scenarios by Adam Gauntlett, Lauren Roy, Chris Spivey, Ruth Tillman and Aaron Vanek, containing extensive handouts, maps and pre-generated characters for each adventure.


Available now from Pelgrane's web shop.
