    Eternal Journal Expansion

    By PoC, in News,

    We launched our customisable notebook system, the Eternal Journal, last year and it's proved popular enough to develop an expanding range of materials for it. 🙂
     
    Out now in the Yoggie Shoppe are new maps, cards and record sheets (including Jazz Age floor plans for The British Museum, a large [42x60 cm/16"x24"] A2 map of 1920s Central London and more).
     
    Eternal Journal notebooks are ultimately configurable – even the covers can be changed. In response to feedback we've now retired the plastic disc edition and everyone can now go "full metal". Over the coming months we'll be developing the range further, and suggestions are always welcome.
     
    Here's the original EJ video featuring Marty where he goes through just some of the possible options available at the moment.

    Berlin: The Wicked City

    By PoC, in News,

    Out from Chaosium comes Berlin: The Wicked City, a Call of Cthulhu supplement set in the eponymous city during the 1920s.
     
    The volume contains an overview of Weimar Republic Berlin, guidelines on creating Investigators and details on notable characters as well as Investigator organisations. Weird elements of the Cthulhu Mythos are also present. Three scenarios are included (The Devil Eats Flies, Dances of Vice, Horror, and Ecstasy, and Schreckfilm) and a list of inspirational media for the setting is also provided.
     
    Chaosium have flagged this book as being for mature readers (and players), though it's unknown if there is an age-bar on purchase.
     
    The 272 book is available now in PDF from Chaosium's web site and DriveThruRPG.

    Larry DiTillio Passes Away

    By PoC, in News,

    The sad news has reached me that Larry DiTillio, author of the original Masks of Nyarlathotep (and screenwriter for Babylon 5, He-Man and many others) has passed away in his 70s after a long illness.
     
    Larry was always a pleasure to talk to and always had a story to tell. As Yoggie's vaults are fairly deep I've unearthed a couple of interviews which I'll re-post here (one text, one audio).
     
    His wonderful roleplaying creations will always live on and spring anew whenever they're played at the table.
     
     
    The following is a recording of a post-interview chat from 2008 where Larry talks about his work on Call of Cthulhu and Babylon 5.The full Masks-related recording can be found on the Lovecraftian Tales from the Table DVD.

    Golden Goblin Press have launched a crowd funding campaign to create a new anthology of 1920s adventures for Call of Cthulhu.
     
    The Kickstarter for An Inner Darkness promises five to seven scenarios with a core theme where "Investigators battle against cosmic horrors while fighting for social justice..."
     
    Golden Goblin plans to present historically accurate and challenging adventures featuring mature themes, offering a "... darker, harsher and more brutal tone than our fans might be used to".
     
    Contributing authors include: Jeffrey Moeller, Brian Sammons, Helen Gould, Charles Gerard and Oscar Rios, with art by Rueben Dodd. The Kickstarter runs until 15th April and has an estimated delivery date of November 2019.
