    Ong’s Hat

    https://gizmodo.com/ongs-hat-the-early-internet-conspiracy-game-that-got-t-1832229488 Dimentional travelling egg pod, a remote group of scientists, a raid by sinister government agents, sounds like a potential Delta Green scenario?
  2. News that Greg Stafford, the Founder of Chaosium has sadly died at the age of 70. I will always remember picking up the first edition of Pendragon, and how different it felt to other roleplaying games (in style, approach and art). I had the pleasure of meeting Greg at Continuum 2008 where he kindly gave the following interview about the company he started (and Call of Cthulhu, the game he enabled). [Video retired. See Lovecraftian Tales from the Table DVD-ROM for offline version.]
  3. In the spirit of the Samurai Sword thread : every wonder what specifically happens after someone fails a sanity check? Not the ones that happen in front of some nameless horror at the moment of peak drama, but the 'morning after' sanity check. 'Gibbering' is such an expansive verb, you know... Man arrested after shooting up hotel room in Albion, putting alarm clock in microwave and leaving note saying 'God delivered me from evil and placed me in Albion' http://www.mlive.com/news/jackson/index.ssf/2010/02/man_arrested_after_shooting_up.html LONDON, Ont. - He's a world-class engineer who impressed with a long, impressive curriculum vitae.His defence lawyer had a stack of reference letters describing his volunteerism, intellectual achievements across North America and quiet nature. * Thompson had maintained a woman had come up behind him and grabbed his genitals while he was bent over looking at a shelf in a drug store at Masonville Place. When he confronted her outside the store, he said he did not head butt her, but their heads did touch during their discussion. But that was not what the victim, a 46-year-old mother, and two witnesses said happened. The victim said she had seen Thompson become agitated inside the store and then was confronted by him with the accusations. She was stunned. The head butt left her with a swollen nose and two bruised eyes. http://www.torontosun.com/news/canada/2010/02/27/13050526.html Police say 45-year-old Troy Reit was standing near Cleveland Avenue and exposing himself to passing cars. Someone drove by, saw him and called police. The officer who responded found Reit wearing nothing but a robe and boots, and when the officer approached him, Reit ran between the homes. "There's some pretty deep snow there. So the officer wasn't able to chase him, but he went around to the other side. As he came around the other side, the man was now naked and holding his robe in his hand," Officer Sam Clemens said. http://www.keloland.com/News/NewsDetail6371.cfm?Id=96299[/b]
  4. There's been a few announcements recently of new discoveries from Ancient Egypt. (Remember the cats?) Ancient Egyptian tomb unveiled [BBC News] Believed to be over 3,500 years old, discovered in the Assasseef valley near Luxor. The 18th Dynasty mummies look to be in a remarkable state of preservation. Image source: Reuters
  5. I stumbled across this on Wikipedia following links from the legendary Australian 'Tamam Shud case', it is a group using DNA testing to try and identify historic murder/suicide victims who for one reason or another could not be identified. The possibilities for finding evidence of 'tainted bloodlines' should be obvious. The Wikipedia page for the organization has a good summary of the organization and it's methods. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_Doe_Project

    Sarcophagus of Nitocris found?

    This seems particularly ominous in light of the Masks of Nyarlathotep releases from Chaosium and the HPLHS... https://www.sciencealert.com/huge-mystery-sarcophagus-unearthed-in-egypt-alexandria
  7. My fiction and non-fiction writing finally coincided -- "The name stands for ‘Collaborative Technology Hardened for Underwater and Littoral Hazardous Environment,’ but it’s also a nod to Cthulhu, the godlike alien created by HP Lovecraft: both are amphibious, dwell in strange surroundings, and have sensory feelers..." http://www.wired.co.uk/article/sellafield-nuclear-robots-cleanup-waste

    The Cheapside Hoard - 1912

    I only stumbled across this story a few days ago, but it would with a few alterations make for an interesting campaign 'start' and rather a change from the standard "An old friend dies/writes a letter/calls/etc..." hook. http://londonist.com/2013/10/the-cheapside-hoard-sparkles-at-museum-of-london.php?showpage=1#gallery-1 Wikipedia has a not too bad article on this with several links to more detailed articles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheapside_Hoard
  9. We don't seem to have a thread devoted to "historical" (by that, I don't mean "historically accurate", but sources/ideas/"facts" drawn from actual historical texts) Egyptology to use as plot/game ideas for pastiches and RPGs. When it comes to "Egypt and the Mythos", this is the thread, IMO: http://www.yog-sothoth.com/topic/29903-nephren-ka-and-company-possible-spoilers/?hl=nephren-ka This thread is (primarily) for accounts by people at the time talking about Egypt and its past. This stretches all the way from the Old Kingdom to the Jazz Age. Maybe an arbitrary cut-off, but all of these sources would be the ones HPL, Smith, Howard etc might have read somewhere. Manifold were the legends, traditions and books bruited about regarding Egyptian history. Whether it was the Book of Thoth or the Bible or the Talmud or the Quran, all of these added to the crushing weight of lore that is the legacy of Egypt. What I want to do with this thread is gather together sources to be referenced/name-checked/used in pastiches and RPGs. Believe me, "truth" is stranger than (most) fiction and why make up something with no foundation when one can base a tale on actual books and accounts? HPL did exactly that and "reinventing the wheel" has never been a virtuous nor worthwhile act. "Nophru-Ka", anyone? Occasionally, I could see posting about fringe/pseudo-scientific "news" that relates back to the sources on this thread. Without further ado, here are pertinent links to Jason Colavito's blog. He's fairly famous as a debunker of pseudo-science/archaeology (he's also an HPL fan), but he holds an abiding interest in searching out the sources of various "esoteric" views today: http://www.jasoncolavito.com/al-maqrizi-on-the-pyramids.html#.V0-B3lQrK1s http://www.jasoncolavito.com/medieval-pyramid-lore.html http://www.jasoncolavito.com/blog/medieval-pyramid-lore-and-the-hermetic-wisdom http://www.jasoncolavito.com/blog/the-remarkable-influence-of-a-wrongly-attributed-quotation-about-the-pyramids http://www.jasoncolavito.com/blog/did-hermes-deposit-tarot-cards-in-the-great-pyramid http://www.jasoncolavito.com/blog/the-strange-claim-that-aristotle-built-the-pyramids Jason has plenty more, but I'll stop there, for now. The various legendary factoids that could be worked in are there. A veritable cornucopia. The Sphinx, of course, is the center of HPL's "Beneath the Pyramids/Imprisoned with the Pharaohs". Its history is millennia-deep and quite convoluted. The Arabs called the Sphinx "Abu al-Hawl" or "Abu-Hol": the "Father of Terror". Lovecraft never referenced this, but that appellation was quite well-known at the time. I've googled accounts from the 19th century and the name is still current today in Egypt. This is an interesting book on the long cultural history of the Sphinx: https://books.google.com/books?id=oOUyS8jODLEC&pg=PA6&lpg=PA6&dq=sphinx+arabic+terror&source=bl&ots=nDTTLQX5dr&sig=nLv7v7RSt1TJmK50_BO6nyiSNFA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjB_sSwjoPNAhUXMFIKHQanCQ8Q6AEIXjAM#v=onepage&q=sphinx%20arabic%20terror&f=false One can scroll up/down and read most of the text.
  10. Just found on YouTube a video which immediately made me think of the Australian film "Dead Calm", the person who made it was sailing across the Gulf of Mexico when he found an abandoned boat in mid-ocean, I can already think of a few ways to 'twist' this in a Mythos direction, but I'm sure others will find this more fruitful.
  11. https://www.livescience.com/61728-hidden-world-beneath-antarctic-ice.html Who knows what they will find.
  12. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/photos/inside-hong-kongs-lawless-walled-city-—-the-most-crowded-place-on-earth-for-40-years/ss-BBIEAWg?ocid=spartandhp#image=11 Mentioned the idea of using the Walled City as a location in another thread. Not sure if there any scenarios or other RPGs that have done this but it seems like a great setting.

    Reviewing in 2017

    In 2017, I wrote over one hundred and thirty reviews of roleplaying games, supplements, and scenarios, plus the odd board game. I also passed a total of seven hundred reviews and seven hundred thousand views since I started writing the blog eight years ago. Of the 2017 reviews, a percentage of those reviews were of fanzines, but still leaves me with over a hundred other reviews, some of them full and lengthy reviews of roleplaying games. Once again, my strongest audiences came from fans of the following—roleplaying games and otherwise: Call of Cthulhu the Old School Renaissance Glorantha, RuneQuest, and HeroQuest Tékumel: Empire of the Petal Throne Nostalgia reviews Of the first two groups of fans, I shall continue commenting upon and reviewing titles as before as I know that this is what my readers want me to write about. The third group of fans is new to my blog and likewise, but I plan to continue writing reviews of titles for the setting and the different rules. Of the fourth, I would like to continue reviewing more titles for the setting, but that is very much down to the publishers as new releases are rare. The fifth group is perhaps the most difficult to write reviews for, not in terms of skill, but in terms of time. For as much fun as they are to write, they take away from the time which needs to be devoted to reviews of new titles. Thus, I will fit them in when and if I can. I have also made every effort to promote my reviews where I can. I plan to continue posting relevant reviews to as many groups as is possible. None of this can come without the support a great many publishers. I owe thanks to Chaosium, Inc., Modiphius Entertainment, Pelgrane Press, The Tékumel Foundation, Osprey Books, Shades of Vengeance, MontiDots Ltd., Purple Sorcerer Games, Golden Goblin Press, Triple Ace Games, Lost Pages, Jan Sielicki, Inner Ham, Wordplay Games, One Free Elephant, Formal Ferret Games, Agate RPG, Rebel Minis, Grey Fey Publishing, Onyx Path Publishing, River Horse, and Monkey Blood Design. Their continued and kind donations have kept me in titles to write about throughout the year. Lastly, there is everyone who takes the time to read my reviews, to whom I can only thank you for taking the time to read what I write. Thank you. I also have a favour to ask of you and it is this… If you read one of my reviews and it sways your decision to purchase a book, then please let its publisher know.
  14. Today the Breakthrough Listen initiative will begin monitoring the strange interstellar object named ‘Oumuamua in its search for evidence of technological life in the Universe: Artist's impression of ‘Oumuamua, which, in honor of being the first known interstellar object, was named in Hawaiian to mean "scout" (from ʻou, meaning "reach out for", and mua, reduplicated for emphasis​, meaning "first, in advance of"). While it's no Rama, I'm holding out hope ‘Oumuamua will be something out of Quatermass 2.
  15. The article's about oral vs. written linguistic evolution generally, but this bit makes me want to write a pseudo-scientific article about the evolution of Mythos cultist languages:
  16. Since HPL was so fond of lost and/or submerged continents, he would doubtless be excited by the prospect of an unknown landmass about two-thirds the size of Australia of which 94% is under water. Zealandia Drilling Reveals Secrets of Sunken Lost Continent Zealandia – Pieces Finally Falling Together for Continent We Didn't Know We Had Today New Zealand is the location of both a cult dedicated to the GOO Zoth-Ommog and an entryway to the Caverns of Yoth where the GOO Nyogtha dwells, but who knows what Mythos-related activity occurred in Zealandia in the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic eras, before it slipped beneath the waves?
  17. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-41202929 Well well well...
  18. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-41012491 A sad story from Southend or perhaps they had a more nefarious reason for putting the kid in the coffin. Rather bizarrely, much to her chagrin, my Mum's motor scooter used to be on display in this museum. Do any of the archaeologists on the forum know any recent news about the royal Saxon tomb they found at Prittlewell a few years ago. It was supposed to go on display at some point. Paul with your "Back to Basildon" issues, it would suggest that you are now the expert on south Essex stuff. HJ

    Chess and the Mythos

    Chess games were very popular during the 1920's and I'm surprised that no one has used one in some way during a scenario or campaign, the game in it's modern form ("the mad queen's game") dates back to the 1470's. (Link to a simulation of a game created for a 15th century poem) I recently stumbled across an article about someone who wrote several major books on chess who disappeared in strange circumstances. Disappeared: D.A. Mitchell What strange algebra had he unleashed in his studies... I leave the floor open to further discussion.

  24. http://www.popularmechanics.com/military/weapons/a26009/man-discovers-gold-in-ex-army-tank/ Just substitute a Mythos artifact for the gold bars and you have a scenario, this would be the perfect way to get an unlikely group of characters together for a first scenario, what is this thing and how did it get into the army surplus 'whatever' we just purchased?
