From Cthulhu Reborn comes Dateline: Lovecraft, a period prop resource for Lovecraftian games.
Dateline: Lovecraft features a 1920s Arkham-related newspaper prop which includes a complete issue of the Arkham Advertiser with some 200 items to act as springboards (or red herrings?) for your game. Along with this comes a 58 page guide filled with suggestions and advice on making the paper as a physical prop and how to use the articles in your game. A set of detailed indices is also provided to help navigate the extensive content.
Designed as a system agnostic resource, Dateline: Lovecraft will also be supported by a series of supplements, starting with a free tie-in scenario: Help Wanted by Jo Kreil.
For more information, see @dce's Press Release in Arkham Market Square.
A system-independent prop resource which provides a huge Arkham-related newspaper prop for you to carve up and use to dream up some adventures of your own, or to add depth to your depiction of the Miskatonic Valley, or to drop clues into random published scenarios. It's a commercial (i.e., non-free) PDF package, available from RPGNow or DrivethruRPG.
Just out for Patrons is the recording of the concluding part of our latest nameless scenario, The Manderley Mysteries by Graham.
An old friend, Christopher Manderley, calls for help with a sensitive family matter. What is going on with Uncle Robert, and the increasingly strange happenings at Belltower Hall? Find out in the latest instalment from the Innsmouth House Players.
The Manderley Mysteries is one of a unique series of scenarios run under YSDC's own rules-lite Lovecraftian roleplaying system, which will be appearing in our Eternal Journal format in the coming months.
The Players have been recording games for more than a decade and you can download a veritable avalanche of them in our Actual Play files section (just log in to access).
I do wonder if we'll ever get better at it..! 🙂

nameless recordings are released in binaural (3D) sound evolved from a high resolution Ambisonic master. It's the only games podcast in the world to do so.

Welcome to the September 2018 meeting of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club, a podcast for Yoggie Patrons. We return to the tea rooms of Yorkshire for discussion of all things, Cthulhu'ey, Lovecraftian'ish and Yog-Sothoth'ery once more!
In this meeting of the CBC we talk about Zeppelin translations, nameless: releases & resolutions and RPGs as spectator sport, along with other topics and tangents that Breakfast Club is known for.
The recording is available to Patrons via our Downloads section, as well as podcast feed, and features chapters and links in the file for enhanced navigation.
ICYMI, we've moved on from Patreon and now offer a less formal "tip jar" (bottom of main CBC page). If you'd like to sponsor the hosts a cup of tea or a biscuit (we'll let them fight over who gets it 😉) they're always grateful.
Not a Patron? It's easier than ever to become one and you gain access to a world of extras. It's how we're able to be here. So come, pull up a chair and join us for possibly one of the more unusual podcasts out there (or in here for that matter)...
Oh, and next month look out for a special Hallowe'en LIVE CBC broadcast (and Val's Cthulhu Cthuiz)... don't say you weren't warned!
The Cthulhu Breakfast Club (our YSDC Patron podcast) is no stranger to unusual formats, whether by location (tea rooms, al fresco), recording (Ambisonic) or delivery (wax cylinder). For August 2018 we added a new (or rather, old) delivery format, Sony MiniDisc. This isn't our first MiniDisc release, but it is our first MD-only one.
CBC: Paraphernalia features @BigJackBrass and myself as we spend an hour and more discussing all manner of grognardian topics at Geek Retreat. Got an old MD player, or maybe you won one on Breakfast Club? Here's an excuse to dig it out of the attic/cellar/shoebox/shoggoth pit and listen to a "Disc-cast" like it's 1999...
We were also delighted to see that the British Library took an interest in it too.

Welcome to another News from Pnakotus, our own "news and views" podcast from Yog-Sothoth. Join me and Marty as we discuss all manner of games, Lovecraftiana and more, while ensconced in the purple and yellow surroundings of Geek Retreat.
In this edition of NfP we discuss being "Big in Japan", the perils of altitude, 17th century machinations and small discs (of various sorts) amongst quite a few other things.
Sit yourself comfortably, plug in your headphones and join us for 50 minutes of Cthulhu-phile chat...
NfP is an Advanced Podcast [AAC audio] featuring artwork, chapters and links inside the file – can be quite useful.
I am going to run CoC adventure set in London, during 20ties, and was looking for information what was the attitude of people to races other than white and with different sexual orientation. Where they discriminated by majority?
My players are thinking about playing such a characters, and I was wondering how to properly role-play NPCs from this time period, on this matter.
I've got the PDF, but seeing pictures of the physical copy...so beautiful. My Google and Ebay alerts haven't turned it up yet (and it's been a few years), but one day...
As for the Glancy PDF, my completely untrained eye would consider it a very well done, hi-res scan. The background is very clean, text on the page is all very straight (with the exception of the first and last 3 pages being just oh-so-slightly "off"), but none of the text is able to be selected. They're part of HoW: Covenant with Death Update 24 from August, 2017. A previous update did mention the PDFs being available for sale at a future date, via DriveThruRPG (but a quick search makes me think that's not come to pass yet).
