Howdy, All!

So, I'm pretty excited. A bunch of good fiction out there, a game book almost out the door...and a brand new Kickstarter just launched!
 

We've gathered a bunch of very talented people, and are creating a brand new setting for Call of Cthulhu and BRP:

 

Punktown

 

Check out the Kickstarter page for more info, but feel free to post questions and comments here. We'll respond as often as we can! Wish us luck (and pledge, please!)

Thank you!

This is impressive to say the least. Mr Mariusz pays a lot of attention to detail, was he involved in San Detour's CoC Screen, Tom? Is he going to be involved in the interior art as well or just the cover?

Not sure if he was involved in Sans Detours screen or not. But yes, Mariusz will be joining us *inside* the book as well. We really lucked out that he's signed on to this project. He's a brilliant artist and he's a joy to work with.

The art is truly amazing - and I love fundraisers where pledgers have the opportunity to have their name mentioned in the book. Plus name added to a map and a character in the book!
Although: "you may not appear quite *human*" - got that beat, I don't anyway!

Thank you both. I sent out an update last night that included the first stretch goal: at $11,000, the book gets an extra scenario complete with art and maps by the infamous Glynn Owen Barrass. Please continue to spread the word to friends about this project. We have more stretch goals beyond that which include a GM's Screen, fiction books, and MORE!
