    The Magnus Archives as campaign setting

    The Magnus Archives [http://rustyquill.com/the-magnus-archives/] is a delightfully sinister UK podcast series "examining what lurks in the archives of the Magnus Institute, an organisation dedicated to researching the esoteric and the weird. Join new head archivist Jonathan Sims as he attempts to bring a seemingly neglected collection of supernatural statements up to date, converting them to audio and supplementing them with follow-up work from his small but dedicated team." This is definitely more of an episodic drama than Night Vale, and ideal scenario fodder. It's not Lovecraftian per se, and has its own supernatural/cosmic-horrific backstory, but it's full of individual adventures and a great inspiration. Even has its own Wiki: http://the-magnus-archives.wikia.com/wiki/The_Magnus_Archives_Wikia.
  2. Paul Fricker, Matthew Sanderson and I have taken to sitting around in Paul's shed, talking about Call of Cthulhu, horror movies and whatever other stuff occurs to us. Luckily we have had the presence of mind to record some of this, so we've started putting out a podcast named The Good Friends of Jackson Elias. We have four episodes on the site now, covering the merits of one-shot games, the films we found the scariest, and various new mechanics in 7th Edition. You can stream or download the show from the site, or subscribe through iTunes. We swear a bit, and the sound quality is a bit rough for the first few episodes, but we're slowly working out what we're doing.
  3. TwelveSidedStories

    Other World London Podcast

    I'd like to tell you about our podcast, Twelve-Sided Story and our first tale, Other World London. The game follows the women of the Royal London Spiritualism Society as they pull back the veil between our world and the next. We use 7E Call of Cthulhu and are 10 episodes in right now. If you're interested, you can check it out on one of these platforms: iTunes/Stitcher/Google Play/Podbean/ Or search Twelve-Sided Stories.
  4. Found this podcast about the Necronomicon online, enjoy... http://www.gokorea.info/cp/cpunplugged25.mp3
  5. In the summer of 2017 we released our *entire* back catalogue of recorded Call of Cthulhu games, free, for everyone, forever. We also promised something more in the future and that's what's happening now with our tabletop games. After some 15 years of recorded roleplaying we're trying something different, our own adventures (mostly), using our own system(ish). nameless nameless is a very simple, rules-lite Lovecraftian RPG system that uses six-sided dice or coins as the primary resolution mechanic. Basic character creation is fast and flexible with an emphasis on the game at the table (rather than the game in a rulebook). As of writing the nameless system is in alpha, but if you're a Patron of Yog-Sothoth you can hear the recordings of game play as they happen at our table ("warts and all"). The focus is on the... Scenarios Our first outing is with a newly created adventure, Stepping Stone, set in the British Isles in 1917 and run by me. The full recording of Stepping Stone (along with associated media files) is available exclusively to Patrons. If you're a site supporter, pick them up now, and look out for further adventures in the new and coming years... Released in binaural surround sound evolved from an Ambisonic master.
  6. The Cthulhu Breakfast Club, a place where Yoggie podcast hosts meet in the convivial surroundings of a Yorkshire tearoom. Marty, Chris, Fin, Val and I get together and take the opportunity to talk about Lovecraftiana, games and more. If you enjoy what you find, you can support these meetings through Patreon (and help out with the odd cup of tea or a biscuit or two). If you're a Patreon supporter ("Breakfast Clubber") or YSDC Patron you can also access occasional extras. The first meeting of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club is dedicated to the memory of Sir Terry Pratchett. These shows are recorded in a live (and lively!) working tearoom environment, so the background hubbub is what it is I'm afraid (along with our casual discussions about fine food and drink). In this first meeting of the Breakfast Club we talk about: The Long Con (Trail of Cthulhu scenario) Alone Against the Dark (Solo Call of Cthulhu adventure) Sense-Impacts (Call of Cthulhu soundtrack) Eternal Lies Audio Game (YSDC recordings) Terry Pratchett (In memoriam) How much prep for your game sessions? Yoggie's Post Office Box UK Games Expo 2015
  7. After four years, Monday, 30th January will see the return of our Lovecraftian media news show, News from Pnakotus, for a second series, along with hosts Chris, Marty and Paul (me) - or as many of us as we can manage because.... The new fortnightly(ish) edition of News from Pnakotus will be publicly broadcast live from our regular CBC venue and (eventually!) in 360º video. The pilot of the new NfP will go out at 10:30AM GMT (like January's CBC) with the archive recording available to Patrons. News from Pnakotus archive (YSDC Patrons) It should be fun. P.S. If you'd like to support our efforts in bringing back News from Pnakotus do consider YSDC Patronage or becoming a Patreon supporter. Thank you.

  9. Not sure if anyone has run across this before, but with the upcoming Yellow King RPG from Robin D Laws and the new Delta Green Yellow King mythos source book coming soon(ish), I'd definitely recommend this podcast for inspiration for a keeper/GM. The first season is a little odd, the second is very peculiar, both capture a definite feeling of the weird though. However the couple of bonus episodes that came out last summer seem to me to be an excellent interpretation of the King in Yellow play itself! IMHO they ooze the type of atmosphere you'd want to capture in your game! http://www.archive81.com

    Good Podcast suggestions?

    I'm seeking some suggestions of good podcast to listen to either about the mythos or simply about the rpg and ideas. I'm a long GM of many games and league organiser of mini games and always like to have something in the background to listen while I paint, write or do housework and I haven't really found anything good for this genre. Thank you in advance.
  11. In the latest podcast, Mike Mason shares his experiences from his formative years of role-playing and how his fascination with horror, drew him towards Call of Cthulhu. INTRO 00.00.16 We are returning to one of our favourite games, Call of Cthulhu, to consider what has changed for the game over the past 2 years, since the last episode. OPEN BOX (with Mike Mason) 06.00 At the time of recording, Mike had just returned from his trip to NECRONOMICON and was fresh with the news of the great success for Call of Cthulhu at GENCON. ED’S BRAND NEW SHED 50.00 Ed is the first of us to hit 50 and his family have treated him to a brand-new metal shed. He talks us through his Fungi From Yuggoth scrapbook. You can get Mutable Deception from Drive Thru RPG. GAMESMASTER’S SCREEN 01.08.00 We’re on a Jolly Boys outing – this is the player reflections on playing the Fungi … campaign.

    Podcast Basics Question

    I have a question about something very basic to podcasting - the human voice. I am thinking of doing an irregular show covering a wide range of topics, gaming amongst them of course. Now, I can't bear listening to my own voice played back, and while I know that's common for a lot of people I would like to get over it. Does anyone have any tips or techniques that can help me? Thanks!
  13. Every Sunday, a new episode of Call of Cthulhu (6th Ed.) actual play audio is released by the Pagan Angel Network podcast (paganangelnetwork.com). Our content is tightly edited down from its original recordings into 10-to-20-minute installments, and we are (to my knowledge) the only extant CoC AP show to follow an original, ongoing campaign (as opposed to classic prewritten campaigns or one-shots). Please subscribe via one of the below platforms, and let me know how I can improve future content! iTunes (available through iOS' podcast app by searching "PAN") https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/pan/id1258343195 CastBox (Android app--again, you'd have to search in-app) http://castbox.fm/channel/PAN-id965047 SoundCloud https://soundcloud.com/user-52898315
  14. Hello to all the Yoggie's out there. The time has come for... We have talked at some length on Breakfast Club and News from Pnakotus about this Pulp Cthulhu campaign that I've been running and the time has come for us to begin releasing episodes. Episode 0 (Character Creation) and Episode 1 (Shot in the Boreal) will go out soon. To whet your appetite I give you this:
  15. The People's Guide to the Cthulhu Mythos A GUIDE TO THE HORRORS THAT LURK IN OUR COLD, UNCARING, AND INFINITE COSMOS. Hosted by D.B. Spitzer(Rev. Danno) A semi-alphabetical guide to the Cthulhu Mythos from dubious sources. Check it out here on iTunes. Only one episode so far, and the first time I've made a podcast. But I'm adding new episodes very soon. A multi-parter on Azathoth up next. Best, Rev. Danno

    Podcasting Technical Help

    Hope you don't mind me dropping this slightly technical question in here, but it is related to my own nascent podcast efforts! So recently I decided to have a bash at podcasting. Now, my computer has mic and headphone inputs and they work just fine but I heard from several sources that even a cheap mixer can work wonders. I obtained a Behringer Xenyx 302 USB mixer for a very good price and started setting it up. Now, the makers website no longer provides a Windows driver and the generic driver that they link to doesn't pick up the main mic input. I can record through the secondary 3.5mm mic input BUT that line doesn't go through the mixer, which means I am no better off than if I just plugged straight into the computer! Anybody got any further ideas, or even maybe an archived copy of the Behringer drivers? I don't want to return the mixer as there's no physical fault with it, it's a software issue.

    How Archaeology Influences Geekery

    The latest episode of The Archaeology Fantasies Podcast gives YSDC (and Paul and Helen) a big name check; one of the presenters calls YSDC 'the premier Cthulhu resource on-line' - when he mentions the recordings of James Holloway's lecture(s) (Lairs of Cthulhu: The Hollywood Years) which Paul recorded. Here's the podcast's synopsis: "Today we talk with special guest David Anderson about how archaeology has influenced various bits of Geek Culture. We look at archaeological themes in Star Trek and Star Wars, See how it influenced D&D and other gaming systems, and stumble our way through archaeology in video games." The First segment is about the influence on Star Wars and Star Trek by Archaeology, the second about RPG's (which is where I am up to so far) - quite a few interesting observations so far.
  20. AireCon is a Yorkshire-based board games convention that's sprung up in the past few years. If you've listened to previous Cthulhu Breakfast Club episodes you will have heard the hosts talk about it. AireCon IV is taking place at the Harrogate International Centre, on the 10-12 March, 2017 and The CBC will be there hosting (possibly live) podcasts during the event. If you're planning on going, I look forward to seeing you there.

    Cthulhu Grognard Podcast

    Hi Sorry about making a blatant plug, but I think you might be interested in this podcast: http://armchairadventurerblog.com/2015/09/26/the-grognard-files-podcast-episode-2-call-of-cthulhu/ The Grognard Files is about rediscovering table top RPGs from back in the early 1980s. The latest episode goes back to the second edition box set produced by Games Workshop and how our group tried to make the conceptual leap from dungeons into madness. You can find it on iTunes here too: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-grognard-rpg-files/id1028591522?mt=2 Thanks Dirk the Dice
  22. So I was listening to the podcast Unexplained (http://www.unexplainedpodcast.com/episodes/2016/1/24/episode-1-opening-the-gate) which has lots of Cthulhu inspiration. I went back to listen to the first one and heard about the Netta Fornario mystery- (http://www.mysteriousbritain.co.uk/scotland/occult/netta-fornario-ionas-occult-mystery.html) - a Golden Dawn adept in 1929 who travelled to Iona and tried making telepathic contact with the spirits and faeries there, before trying to leave the island in a panic, was unnable due to lack of boats and was then found dead atop a fairy mound the next morning naked save for a cloak, dagger, a silver cross turned black and scratches all over her, but no visible wound. But while I accept that Unexplained goes for the most Fortean explanation going, (pineal glands, making contact with faeries from other dimensions, psychic attacks from dead Golden Dawn leader Moina Mathers) and that is their schtick, some of the other facts about the case- Netta's unhappy childhood, not fitting in, beliefs in her own telepathy, regularly getting lost on the island and falling into trances all speak more of an unhappy woman with mental health issues who had a psychotic break or other mental breakdown and then wandered the moors naked in a daze or panic, scratching herself on gorse before dying of hypothermia or exposure. Maybe its just my inner Occam's razor, but this episode just really wound me up the wrong way. It's a tragedy, and she was doing some unusual stuff prior to her death, but its not unexplainable. Still I'm vaguely disappointed that Netta Fornario hasnt shown up in any Cthulhu Brittanica books (Scotland or London)
  23. Hey everybody, I just wanted to let anyone who wasn't already listening know about our podcast! We've been playing Tatters of the King for the last few weeks and have recorded all of it. I think we have a pretty fun group and I think you'd all enjoy being a part of our game. Please not that our audio quality improves tremendously after the first episode. Enjoy! https://soundcloud.com/gateandkey
  24. Here's a link to the Chaosium Call of Cthulhu Gen Con Panel I recorded from last night (Aug 5th) for those who couldn't go. Mike Mason, Sandy Petersen, Jeff Richards, Paul Fricker, and Lynn Hardy talk about new plans for the Cthulhu line and share some juicy new details. The youtube description contains a breakdown of topics and timestamps. Biggest news is a new campaign from Lynn Hardy, new Pulp Cthulhu campaign from Paul Fricker, new collection of scenarios from Sandy Petersen, and remarks about quality and production from all Cthulhu products down the road. Exciting stuff! Audio version here: http://outofspacegames.blogspot.com/2016/08/gen-con-2016-call-of-cthulhu-panel.html (Mods feel free to move this to the appropriate section. Also unsure how to embed video if that is possible).

    Primeval Thule Actual Play

    Greetings all! My name is Mark and am the GM for the Quest Gaming Networks actual play podcast based in the Primeval Thule campaign setting. The Primeval Thule setting is a fantasy setting heavily inspire by the works of Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith and H.P. Lovecraft. It takes place in the ancient past, after the sinking of Atlantis but before the coming Ice Age buries the primeval continent forever. The world is so very, very old and humanity is so very very young. The best way to describe our particular game is a cross of Conan the Barbarian with Pelgrane Press' Book Hounds of London. The players own a small shop tucked away in the back alleys of Quodeth, the trade capital of the continent, and hunt for ancient writings and artifacts left over from a prehuman age at the behest of their mysterious patrons. The game uses the the Fifth edition of Dungeons and Dragons rules set with more of a focus on story than combat. We are now a weekly podcast with new episodes every Wednesday. Here's what we've released so far, and there are many, many more on the way. We are also available on iTunes and Stitcher Radio. Episode 1: That Escalated Quickly! Episode 2: Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes? Episode 3: Bad at Making Plans, Good at Eliminating Witnesses Episode 4: Adventures in Downtime I also have a video series of DM Diaries where I discuss what happened in a previously released session and maybe some other things about my history in gaming and GMing. DM Diary: What is QGDnD? DM Diary 01 DM Diary 02 DM Diary 03 If you're interested in following us on Twitter you can find our official account and my account here: QGDnD Mark Thanks for taking the time to read that and, hopefully, giving us a try. Good gaming!
