Spherical video clips in "YoggieVision" are also available to watch as we inspect the new version of Call of Cthulhu and there's another chance to win one of our CBC wooden Dice Towers.

Summer is almost upon us in The Cthulhu Breakfast Club as we exercise our imaginations regarding the weather, but all is bright and cheery as the CBC meets once more at Pickles Tea Rooms in Yorkshire to discuss:

Pulp Cthulhu, UK Games Expo 2016, The Cthulhu Hack, the Lovecraftian Horniman, Convicts & Cthulhu, beyond Unseen Masters, the great scone debate (Devon vs. Cornwall), would we survive a Call of Cthulhu scenario?, the Stationery Isle, amazing game rooms and more.

"Breakfast Clubbers" can vote in a new poll and we announce a change in the way we give away our wooden Dice Towers.

We look forward to you joining us at our table for the latest news, views and (sometimes quite tall) tales.

There are a number of ways, the most immediate is probably via The Cthulhu Breakfast Club forum.

Thanks! I kept looking on the BC home page, and couldn't find anything that sent me to the actual recording! The other entries always sent me more or less to the place I needed to go.


very respectfully,
Lynn

We dropped the SoundCloud playlist a little while back on the CBC homepage, in part due to the behaviour of the company. You will always find the Breakfast Club recordings in the relevant thread in the CBC forum (and via the Patrons' podcast feed/file downloads section).

Switching things up a bit for 2017 we're looking into publicly live-streaming the occasional Cthulhu Breakfast Club from Pickles. If this turns out to be feasible look out for more details come mid-January.

However, I hope you'll continue to post the voice files here on YSDC. I'm on a satellite system with several other users and frequently can't get the band-width to do live-streaming, but I sure don't want to miss out on the Breakfast Club!

Yes, of course. That's the primary format!

Anything "live" is just an extra via: yog-sothoth.com/live  :-)

We'll see how it goes!
 
From time to time we get asked about transcriptions of the podcasts. The issue with text versions is that it's either expensive or very time consuming to produce. There are automatic services (which you still have to pay for, but are much cheaper than human services) but as you'll see below, the results are far from perfect (though often jolly entertaining in their own right).
 
Here's an example from the first 10 minutes of the Cthulhu Confidential discussion from the December 2016 meeting of the CBC - as transcribed by machine translation.


[00:00:00] By Robbie delors Now we go. It's about the covenant she confidential and one to one play. That's all that's about. But just for a moment. Well you don't have to be in front of me. Yeah I would do that. KING In your role as well. But you are in front of you. This is the drink. Another physical thing about. 
 
[00:00:22] Dragon meat special that you've picked up on of let me just have a quick look because I'm quite interested. You've got all of these. Do I go out as well. And I mean it's very lovely. 
 
[00:00:34] It is. It is the soft cover version. Yeah. It doesn't kind of keep a half thick but it was inexpensive for a game like that. I thought so. Certify the when it comes out in print in hardback you know 45 or 35. And I had a good I had a good read through it and it's very well written. Yeah if it was ximena you really haven't seen the Robin has written most of it. I haven't read the other two adventurers yet. Once 
 
[00:01:05] I flick through the events that I played with Robin just to sort of see where it took me a result magdalens was fat on my sleeve. 
 
[00:01:13] That's how I like best one. One in. New York which is Ruth wrote Dad. That's right. Ruth's Tillman. Tillman Yes. And critics say he wrote the one with former everet african-american guy in Washington D.C.. Yeah. 
 
[00:01:31] That's interesting. It's very well written. There was a let me just give you my rough sort of view of what was in there written in very easy to post and we've discussed it often. I don't actually like the graphic style inside of it to spark. And for me I don't like some of the elements they put in. But that's just me in the legit elements. Yes that's my amphlett and I'm not so keen on the art. 
 
[00:01:57] That's my personal preference all the time and I just think it's you guys together. I think it's fine. But it's very very readable. Yeah. There are lots of very much over the period of the Graphic yes I preach. That's a good point actually because it is the art deco. 
 
[00:02:13] It is very much aiming for that. One of the things. That it does and I don't know where this is and this is something that. 
 
[00:02:25] I also called. 
 
[00:02:29] The the system that is based off. Come come shoo shoo. Does is it breaks down very much the. The sort of challenges. Yeah. Here is a challenge and this is the it comes and you could get this potential sort of boost to what they call them. You get problems associated with them when you get edgy. And they're kind of very clearly designated and defined. 
 
[00:02:57] It's gumshoe to already. Does this. 
 
[00:03:00] No fourth edition. They went through a phase where it defined skeeball challenges. Right. 
 
[00:03:07] It really misses the outcome and this is the sort of the in and out point and it becomes. And it turns. It's the worry is that it turns into just a big flowchart even that the whole game becomes a big Fluxion that I can't imagine that's the case. What do you think. Do you like dance. 
 
[00:03:25] I do like that because that is a structure that you can hear your story behind. And players often will go off of it as long as you like simple enough to almost go. Yeah. 
 
[00:03:36] So I think if you're just my spawn I mean you are far away saying that the war will not only get you get left with people who don't have a certain thing anything like that. But am I in the right ballpark or helpful. Yeah. Yeah. It's people. 
 
[00:03:53] They don't pick up on something that's an issue with me. Yeah. With mystery where people don't you've given them leads but they don't necessarily understand that they're athletes and that sometimes you have to there's a whole section I remember in the book where they talk about how wasted huge character looks like you give them a clue. 
 
[00:04:12] Is the match. What that says. The classes are like close to like love. And then they just don't think to go to the starlike clubs stumbling tiger and then you would say you know things that you could do or of which might be a little railroad is saying hey you know this as a detective thing that's as the Sari Club means that they actually went to the starlight club to get that probably. And it's like oh then. 
 
[00:04:37] And this is the other thing I found fascinating was that this is they've really looked at Robin has really looked at. 
 
[00:04:45] What it means to have one to one experience. Yeah. And how that's so very different. So a. Two three four player five six players. How what what changes what. What's different. 
 
[00:05:00] And that's it's quite fascinating that the intensity goes up. Suddenly you're on your own literally against you whatever it is. 
 
[00:05:09] But you have this very defined you don't have any downtime you don't have any bounce ideas off you don't. It's just you and you have to work it all Miles. 
 
[00:05:19] There's no downtime There's no down to have the keeper know a normal game. Half the time you're doing you're just sitting there. 
 
[00:05:27] Yeah. You said there were many of the players and you give them away as well entertain themselves. Yeah exactly. 
 
[00:05:33] Apparently one of the things I mean this is a really nice GM invites in here as well. Yes there is quite interesting. It was lovely to read that after having played with Robin. Oh I did. It's one of the things he said it is common sticking points. 
 
[00:05:48] There's a whole load of people about you know what people do. One of them was especially not wanting to talk to scary people. Yes. I mean it says in here it was specifically picked out. This came up more than once in test runs of Fathom asleep with players I keen on mittie coach as a person to talk to. 
 
[00:06:04] And that's exactly what I went of my way not to talk to it because he was really scary mobster. 
 
[00:06:11] He was a really scary kind of like nutty kind of psycho psychopathic sociopathic mobster. And I was just like all the to is we we'll go to the unfit you turn the rhetoric up. 
 
[00:06:25] But yeah. So it was it was interesting it was fascinating you know. But you know do you have. 
 
[00:06:31] Do you have the wherewithal to play it if you play by Rihanna on my way around this for my wife. She really enjoyed it. And we both enjoyed it. It was fine. There's a lot more prep all furs are quite a lot of running only being one of the things I found when I was running it was because like I know nothing about what sentiments we're willing to do. 
 
[00:06:53] So in your voice that's where I was a little bit but see with that is because you know I mean also didn't. Some of the 90's some of the noir tropes I'm not that familiar with. Right. So. 
 
[00:07:09] You know it was a bit low but lots of security but stupid questions and it's pre-emptions still. Yes. Is this a thing. I don't know. Why should I worry. This stuff was in the late thirties or mid 30s. Prohibition came three years. 
 
[00:07:26] Is it to one step one city in the. City. 
 
[00:07:31] I don't know. I thought it was a national la carte. That wasn't the amendment as well. No. 
 
[00:07:38] And then there's the vosh Act which is actually be an act. Yes. Because when they put the probation in that they thought it was really going to count or speary something like beer and 45. Why are we fighting right. And then the vost their activity. 
 
[00:07:56] And it was like look yeah. None of it none of it. Let's say you got prescription. 
 
[00:08:01] Or communion or you had you know to keep the vineyards. Yeah. Well yeah it's church hard politician not soft porn very hard. 
 
[00:08:11] Hard to think hard you can sitting there as well which is sick. Exactly. There's two. There are two. Kansas City Kansas City Kansas in this Kansas City Oklahoma Oklahoma City Missouri you're going to be wondering there are basically facing each other look into this. I don't know. Look at this. Still everything about it. It's a really big country. You've got a really big brain. I am sure that is quite interesting because this whole thing called the London creeping in. 
 
[00:08:44] Then you've got poisonous creams. 
 
[00:08:46] Well this is another thing that a lot of industrial alcohol. Exactly. They actually put poison in it. Yes they do. Yeah yeah. And then so people were drinking in my system. So this isn't a big fight is a new phenomenon as well which is quite significant wouldn't it. 
 
[00:09:05] Which is why you're going to be if you're going to drink the hundred percent proof alcohol that you send it down to the mass spectrometer first and run some chicken and then put it in the bud we used to get it from a store or that you don't enjoy arguing with some people the folks that you can a and then you got used to it and then your news about half of it and the vessels went into the big sort of jar. 
 
[00:09:28] But when I would tie I used to happen to get two and a half to Winchester bottles of ethanol. I used to have to sign all forms as I don't drink anyway. Okay I missed them. Pure ethanol to our giant apparently could do a lot of luck with things like buying cocktails. 
 
[00:09:45] And I do wonder how to train up and have a training where at all hours you know what's going on. 
 
[00:09:51] So this is something this cop tells police the NAACP edges this you you when you first went into the family. 
 
[00:10:01] And. Eternal lives you know. 
 
[00:10:05] And you have say in both fact that it was different that in each case he had an outcome for that particular scenario.


One day I'm sure it will work. ;-)

Unfortunately we've used up our free trial minutes. :-) I think it actually did pretty well considering the multiple voices and recording conditions!

I'll actually second that -- you could actually see the transitions and the attempts to make sense of the usual around-the-table banter. It was like a court recorder's effort if they tried to record a group luncheon...

Well, it looks like we're set to go ahead with LIVE broadcasting of this month's CBC (pencilled in for Monday, 16th January).
 

cbc-live-broadcast-banner.jpg

 
We normally start at about 10:30AM (UK time) and you'll be able to join us at our table via the details at: yog-sothoth.com/live
 

We'd love for you to join us, but fully understand the timing is less than ideal for many. However, as always, Breakfast Clubbers and Yoggie Patrons will get the archive recordings (and more).

 

Our first ever live broadcast (a game of The Haunting) was over 10 years ago. How time flies...

I've completed the last round of tests, and it works - so - feel free to join us for The Cthulhu Breakfast Club, broadcast live next Monday (16th January).

 

UK timings are posted, or lookout for the site banner (as above) with a countdown clock.

 

We'll be making use of the newly available Twitter LIVE Video feature (but leveraging the streaming audio part). You should be able to pick up the broadcast via @YSDC or wherever our Twitter feed is embedded. It should be fun. :-)
