Ramsey: "I look forward to it, Scott!"

Wow...that's fantastic news. Thanks for sharing, Scott. Now, if we can get him to write something for the book... 8)


Interesting you should mention that Tlynch...

Some of Ramsey's remarks towards the end of the thread suggest this might be fortuitus timing...

We probably can. I haven't asked him yet. Once the book is nearing completion I'll ask him.

Getting Campbell right is a necessary first step, but what about the connections to Goatswood in other CoC scenarios? There should be mention of the Ives family (from "Fade to Gray"), of Hillary Quarrie and Wilfred Gresty (from Tatters of the King) and of Terry Bloom (from "Dark Havest"), and probably of several others I've forgotten. (Does anyone have a complete list of all Goatswood related stuff in CoC books?) It's just annoying when NPCs that are important in a scenario related to the place aren't even mentioned in the sourcebook.

(...)Ramsey: "I look forward to it, Scott!"

So I have his official blessings (which I never doubted, but its always nice to hear). Onward and upward now....

It's great that you have his blessings of course, but didn't he say anything else except that he looks forward to it? Oh well, I suppose taking his Severn Valley setting back to the 1920s is not exactly something he's ever thought of.

Well, I also look forward to the final result!

No, again he's not a gamer and probably knows next to nothing about RPGs and CoC. I didn't expect any feedback from him as far as content goes. He wasn't personally involved in the first Goatswood book beyond the introduction he so graciously did for me.

I realize I am really late to this conversation, but is this project a moot topic? After years of playing CoC, I just started reading Cold Print yesterday. Personally, I would have bought a Goatswood book and I think it should have covered the modern era since that's when the stories take place. However, setting it in the classic era would not have soured me at all.
BTW, love the Malleus Monstrorum! Any news on the second volume?

I just picked up Goatswood. Although I was thinking of a campaign running in the gaslight and classic era, I thought this would be the perfect source material. Seeing that you are actually working on a 20's era Goatswood setting is exciting. Are you still working on this? Also own Malleus Monstrorum... one of the best CoC books out there as a sourcebook.

MRP is not, but that would not stop Scott David Aniolowski (the author behind both the existing book and potential future book) from pursuing publishing it elsewhere. I don't believe he is actively doing that, though.
