Pelgrane Press have dealt a new hand for their Cthulhu Confidential roleplaying game with the release of a printable Problem & Edges Deck - a handy manifestation of the "Problem" and "Edge" cards that investigators accumulate during play.
The Cthulhu Confidential Problem & Edges Deck is available in PDF form directly from Pelgrane's web site (or via DriveThruRPG), which can then be printed at your leisure. No news yet as to whether they will also make an appearance on DriveThruCards [POD], but we'll keep you posted.
When our home group (the Innsmouth House Players) concluded a 12 year run of Call of Cthulhu campaigns in the summer, some kind folks asked what we were going to do next.
We certainly weren't planning on stopping playing.
Instead we've taken a new direction by developing our own homebrewed system (nameless) and scenarios. To explore
strange, new worlds our own stories and particular ways of play. The first of these new stories, Stepping Stone, is now available for Yoggie Patrons to listen to.
Further details and discussion can be found in the following YSDC forum thread: nameless [YSDC RPG] We hope you'll join us.
In what is probably our penultimate release of the year, the December 2017 recording of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club is now out.
Chris, Marty, Val and me chat about a variety of Lovecraftian and game-related topics while celebrating the holiday period with some Salzburger Mozartkugel.
We are convinced that Rick Astley is our new friend.
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.
