    Delta Green: A Night at the Opera

    By PoC, in News,

    Out a while in PDF but now available in print through retail, it's Delta Green: A Night at the Opera, an anthology of DG scenarios from Arc Dream publishing.
     
    A Night at the Opera collects six previously released Delta Green PDF scenarios into official hard copy form for the first time.
     
    Amazon (US) currently have DG: A Night at the Opera listed at $24 USD (which seems a bargain as the "original" PDF price is given as $40 USD – but really, $20 – you know how that old marketing tactic goes...).
     
    Anyway, available now in print. Pick it up (if you haven't already) before it goes up in price.
     
    Delta Green: A Night at the Opera
     
    A Night at the Opera collects six Delta Green operations, or "nights at the opera" as agents sometimes call them. Each scenario stands on its own as a moment of terror. Combined, they expose agents to the edges of the horrors of the world of Delta Green, then suck them into abysses of fear and desperation from which the world itself may never emerge.
     
    Playable with Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game, the Agent's Handbook, the Handler's Guide, and the free quickstart rulebook, Need to Know.
     
    Price: $20 USD (PDF), $24 USD (Print)

    Terror Australis – Second Edition

    By PoC, in News,

    More than thirty years after its original publication, Chaosium have released a new edition of Terror Australis, their Australian sourcebook for Call of Cthulhu.
     
    The new and much expanded edition features resources for 1920s Australia, background on cities, the Mythos, Alcheringa ("Dreamtime") and two (new) large scenarios; all clocking-in at over 300 pages (compared to c. 140 for the 1987 release).
     
    Terror Australis is available directly from Chaosium's web site in PDF format, with the print edition coming in 2019. Chaosium is also following its now standard practice of "buy the PDF, get that expense discounted against the future print edition" (essentially the PDF becomes "free" when you then buy the print book).
     
    Terror Australis
    Call of Cthulhu in the Land Down Under
     
    The supplement contains sections on: Australian History and Geography, Australians, Resources for 1920s Australia, Australian Cities, Alcheringa, the Mythos in Australia and two longer scenarios: Long Way From Home and Black Water, White Death.
     
    Price: $21.99 USD (PDF)
     
    Chaosium's product descriptions are somewhat lengthier than they used to be, so I don't think "cut & pasting" the page text would work here anymore. You can read the full description (and pick up the PDF) at...

    Hypergraphia #1

    By PoC, in News,

    There must be something in the Arkham water at the moment as another Cthulhu gaming magazine makes its debut.
     
    After the launch of Bayt al Azif last month comes Hypergraphia, this time from @gladius at Gladius Games. Hypergraphia is a "...digital fanzine of dark horror gaming for multiple systems including Call of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Dark". The 58 page publication is available in PDF from DriveThruRPG and the first issue includes a short Call of Cthulhu scenario.
     
    It's great to see a resurgence in magazine support for Cthulhu gaming. Long may it continue!
     
    Hypergraphia Magazine Issue #1
     
    A digital fanzine of dark horror gaming for multiple systems including Call of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Dark. In this issue we look at the many ways that language, writing, and books can be used in your horror games. We bring you a plethora of NPCs, artefacts, and scenario seeds about writing, words, iconography, and occult tomes to jumpstart your own scenarios or inject linguistic concepts into an existing story you're telling. Including A Remembrance of Things Past, a short Call of Cthulhu 7th edition scenario, wherein your players will discover that language really is a virus.
     
    Contributions from members of the Miskatonic University Podcast, Skype of Cthulhu, Weird Works, and Squamous Studios.
     
    Price: $3 USD for the PDF
