Worlds#5

Recommended Posts

kafka47

Now that everyone is distracted by the World Cup. Dare we ask when Worlds of Cthulhu#5 might be out. In lieu of a subscription service, would you consider something like an automatic email service letting people know when it is In Production, Shipping (which distributors will carry it, so that we can bug our FGLS)?

 

I have to say that Cathulu was a bit too Juvenile for my tastes, I could see how it could be useful but the other articles did not pull up the rest of issue. Thus far, my favorite has been #1 with its fast paced adventure and also background information. For I am one who is interested in how the creative process works (colloquially, known as: "war stories")

I missed this somehow amongst everything else.

 

WOC5 is due out August/September.

 

The mailing list *could* be a good idea. I will talk to Frank.

 

Now back to getting the handouts ready...

How's issue 5 going?

 

Slowly. I had hoped to have finished on Sunday but there a number of technical hold-ups. I hope to have the magzine with Pegasus by the ned of the month.

As I said, I hope to have the files to Pegasus by end of Nov. It normally takes a month to print, plus its Christmas so I'm guessing, and this certainly isn't offical, it might appear first or second week of Jan 2007. Massively late I know but that was due to our technical difficulties which I hope will not be repeated for WOC6.

Actually, I was hoping you could tell us about some of the articles and scenarios appearing in the next issue, as opposed to when it is coming out? But the information you gave is gratefully recieved.

 

Thanks

That serves me right for speed-reading at work.

 

The contents so far are:

 

 

  • Master of Hounds – a one-off scenario set in the London of the Great Fire of 1667.
    Out of the Ages – a modern day scenario by Gary Sumpter
    Twilight Sleep – a 1920s scenario by Aaron Varnek
    The Sword of Sneferu – an Egyptian mythos fighting organisation
    The Germaine Institute – a modern day group fighting evil in the United States
    The Cult of Red Hook is explored by Dan Harms
    Scott Glancy has some very interesting things to say about the future of DG in Directives from A-Cell
    There’s a neat article on time travel in Keeper’s Corner
    Dark Ages Constantinople by the fabulous Chad Bowser
    And I might sneak some other stuff in as well...

 

edited: added Constantinople after the outraged Mr. Bowser quite rightly kicked my arse!

Is Issue 5 available yet?

 

If it is, I'll ask my local Travelling Man store to order one in for me! :)

Adam or other knowledgable person, would you happen to know who your distributor in Canada is? Tempted to shortcut my FGLS, as I have got nothing but grief from them lately when I asked that they order direct from Choasium's website (only way to get MULAs and they don't pay duty but they prefer the distributor route -- so I need something to hammer them over the head with, when NA distributors are alerted, I can hammer them)...

My FLGS said it was coming in this week! Do we have to wait until after Christmas?!?!?

 

(We'll be very happy whenever it comes - it has become the only magazine (of any kind) we pick up without fail.)

I need number 5 to finally get that completed Elder Sign on the spines as they are aligned neatly on my bookshelf-it's very considerate of the editors to provide 5 tomes of sanity loss but at least to give a little something in return to those loyal enough to stay the distance.

 

But it does beg the question-what are the plans for future volumes? Do we get a Yellow Sign for volumes 6 though 10?

PSI Fulfilment are the global distributors of the magazine.

 

HTH.

Yes. But it is coming. Like something in the dark, to paraphrase a crap but occasionally inspired TV show.

Figures... I'm 2 sessions in to my Time Travelling CoC scenario....

 

However, the Time-Drift Potions from a previous issue will see significant use in the coming weeks...
