Dudes. Just picked up the Pulp rulebook and the pdf for 2HS. Really loving it so far! You guys have done a superb job with your dissemination of Keeper information making it very easy (and fun!) to tweak, write & take notes. Just wanted to give some accolades. Any idea on the arrival of the hardcovers? Keep up the GREAT work!!

Hard cover of THS is on its way - the ships carrying it have docked in the UK and USA - should be on their way to our warehouses any day - then it'll be up on the website.

The latest episode was great, thank you!

 

Can we get more interviews with Mike Mason, though? He was great, but the guy you had on the last episode was a bit dull.

We discuss Lovecraft's story 'The Call of Cthulhu' and interview Sandy Petersen about the story and it's influence on the Call of Cthulhu rpg.

 

Episode109.jpg

 

Yes, this is part 1 in which we look at the first two parts of the story. In the next episode we'll be wrapping up with the third part of the story and looking at what we can take from the story for gaming. We'll also be featuring an interview with the HPLHS.

Necronomicon Seminar: Call of Cthulhu Campaigns including announcement and news about the new edition of Masks of Nyarlathotep.

 

Bonus episode recorded at Necronomicon 2017. This time it’s the turn of the seminar about Call of Cthulhu campaigns. Once again, Mike Mason chairs the discussion, and Lynne Hardy joins Matt, Paul and Scott to nominate our favourite published campaigns and talk a little about what makes a campaign work.

 

Mike also took this opportunity to announce the new version of Masks of Nyarlathotep. This was good timing, as everyone who had worked on the revision was on the panel. Obviously, we discuss the new edition a little, as well as some other new campaigns in the Chaosium pipeline.

Ep115: Shub-Niggurath, from inception to the pint of mother's milk on your doorstep.
 
Episode115.jpg
 
We’re back and we’re dancing around in the woods, bleating with ecstasy, smearing our mutating bodies with Mother’s milk. This episode is our discussion of the Lovecraftian deity, Shub-Niggurath. It is part of our ongoing look at the gods of the Mythos, continuing from our recent episode about Dagon.

 

Shub-Niggurath appealed to us greatly, as she is so loosely defined in the original fiction. Her evocative soubriquet of The Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young has inspired many writers since Lovecraft to find interesting uses for her. Her roles and identities in games and fiction are almost as numerous as her progeny.

 

In our discussion, we try to pin down where Shub-Niggurath came from and how she has grown and mutated in fiction and RPGs. We then build on this to offer some ideas about how you could use Shub-Niggurath in your own games. Her role as a corrupted and corrupting force of nature and her connection to witch cults make her suitably fecund inspiration, birthing many abominable ideas.

 

As we announced recently, there is a new edition of The Blasphemous Tome in the works. This is the fanzine we produce for the wonderful people who back us on Patreon. We’re putting out an open call for submissions. If you have a short article (300-1,000 words) or some black-and-white artwork that you think would fit the Tome, we would love to see it. 

 

We also offer a fresh warning about the dangers of Attract Fish, especially if it involves kissing a Dover sole. Just don’t do it, kids.

 

Other Stuff

Be warned, there is singing in this episode, or at least something approximating it. As regular listeners will know, we rely on the generosity of our Patreon backers to fund the show. One of the ways we give thanks to them is to sing the praises of our $5 backers. This episode sees two such songs. Not having met for some weeks, we had a lot of pent-up creative energy. I think the sounds we produced this time number amongst our strangest emissions.

Ep116: The Shunned House. Yes friends, here's a Halloween treat for you, come with us as we explore the shunned house, remember to bring your own framethrowers (checking first they are military grade of course).

 

We dig into Lovecraft's classic tale to discover what we can take as inspiration for our games.

We discuss Ron Edwards' game Sorcerer in our latest episode
 
Episode117.jpg
 
Kicking off a self-publishing revolution in the late 1990s, Sorcerer was arguably a manifesto as much as a game. This is not to say that it’s not fun or interesting to play. It’s a challenging RPG, but a rewarding one.

In our discussion, we make reference to the indie games website, The Forge. While the discussion forum is no longer active, its archived content is still accessible. If you have any interest in playing Sorcerer (or other indie games of the period), there are plenty of insightful threads to be found there. Another useful resource we mention is Christopher Kubasik’s Play Sorcerer. While the book itself was never completed, you can find several chapters on the linked blog. This is essential reading for Sorcerer GMs. Kubasik also created the TV series, The Booth at the End, which explores many of the same themes as Sorcerer. Finally, we mention the range of Sorcerer mini-supplements, as well as the excellent Dictionary of Mu.

Ep118: The Mythos as Religion. What does it mean to believe in the gods of the mythos, how would it compare with real-world religions?

You can find it here.
