  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.

    Role Playing Journal

    I ran the conclusion of The Haunting this past weekend for my group. It can be found at my journal at: http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer PCs were Benjamin Willows, Tommy O'Sullivan, and Jonathon Ransom. Feedback would be welcome. Sorry this one is so long but I taped many of the conversations.
  4. For Immediate Release Uhrwerk Verlag/Clockwork Publishing is proud to launch their Crowdfunding for a new edition of Lester Smith’s DARK CONSPIRACY, a dystopian action horror roleplaying game. First published in 1991 by Games Designers Workshop (GDW), DARK CONSPIRACY was a startlingly original action-horror game, depicting a bleak, retro-futuristic, totalitarian America where corporations rule everything and the countryside has been abandoned to violent gangs and alien horror. The game line flourished and spawned a trilogy of novels, a board game, ample support in gaming magazines, a wide range of sourcebooks and adventures, and a variety of fan-produced magazines, each dramatically expanding the scope of the setting. Despite being out of print for years, the game maintains an international base of passionate enthusiasts, with many calls for its return. In DARK CONSPIRACY, the players taken on the roles of normal citizens in an era marked by a Greater Depression, drawn into investigating the sinister alien horror that has infiltrated human society. With a variety of high-tech weapons and paranormal abilities, these “hunters” wage a clandestine war against and battlefields ranging from sprawling, dystopian metroplexes to the open countryside, haunted by weird creatures and corrupted by alien influence. The ultimate horror is that this malefic force is apparently aided by human collaborators, corporations and governments who have sold humanity out for their own survival and profit. This new edition updates the game system and setting to modern sensibilities and heralds a robust line of accompanying sourcebooks and accessories. The team is led by veteran author and designer Jason Durall (RuneQuest, Conan, Basic Roleplaying, Serenity, Achtung! Cthulhu, The Laundry Files, World War Cthulhu, etc.), and consists of a wide and diverse team of talented newcomers and industry veterans, with additional team members to be announced. The crowdfunding launches Thursday, April 11, 2019 (2 PM eastern time, 11 AM pacific time), and runs until May 7 on www.gameontabletop.com It includes the DARK CONSPIRACY core rulebook, a gamemaster screen/resource, an adventure anthology, an equipment sourcebook, a guide to paranormal phenomena, and a bestiary describing the bizarre and horrific creatures of the Conspiracy. http://www.gameontabletop.com https://www.facebook.com/DarkConspiracy About Clockwork Publishing/Uhrwerk Verlag Uhrwerk Verlag was founded in 2009 by Patric Götz. Previously, he already has gathered extensive experience in the field of roleplaying, first, as an employee in a games store, then working at a wholesaler and finally, as publishing director and CEO at Ulisses Spiele. The first games published by Uhrwerk were the German versions of Hollow Earth Expedition and Deadlands Classic in 2009 as well as the license for the western continent Myranor for The Dark Eye. In the following years, Uhrwerk also published further games with great success, among them more and more German self-prodcutions like Malmsturm, Contact or Dungeonslayers. But they also continued extending the publisher‘s list with translations of English games such as Numenera and Achtung! Cthulhu. Since 2013, Uhrwerk Verlag (under the label Clockwork Publishing) also captures the English-speaking market. With a successful kickstarter for a translation of the German version of Space:1889, the English version of the game was financed. At the same time, Uhrwerk Verlag focuses mainly on the production of Splittermond, its own German fantasy roleplaying game. Today, about a dozen employees are permanently employed at Uhrwerk Verlag. On average, three to four roleplaying publications are issued per month. Uhrwerk Verlag already successfully carried out several crowdfundings. (Posting on behalf of the actual publisher though I am on the project too!)
  5. Do your dice deserve an old one as a guardian? One night, a few years ago, a cuddly little abomination wormed his way into my brain and refused to be quiet until I gave him a body and a name. Now he wants to take over the world. I'm... surprisingly ok with that. Bagthulhu is live on Kickstarter now.
  6. An exciting new partnership announced today: Call of Cthulhu & Syrinscape: Call of Cthulhu games often involve creating more of an immersive experience than many other types of games. Just like our games often feature elaborate handouts and props, we have also noticed that our players often crave soundtracks that help build that sense of unease, suspense and dread at the gaming table, punctuated by moments of horror and excitement! Syrinscape's sounds provide exactly that, and we are proud to be partnering with them, says Chaosium president, Rick Meints. More details here: https://www.chaosium.com/blogcall-of-cthulhu-coming-to-syrinscape
  7. One outcome of our recent Chaosium Berlin Summit is the welcome news that Lynne Hardy has come on board full-time as Associate Line Editor for Call of Cthulhu. (Until now Lynne has been assistant Call of Cthulhu line editor on a part-time basis). As I'm sure many YSDC readers will know, Lynne has extensive RPG industry experience, as an editor and writer for Nightfall Games, Cubicle 7, Pelgrane Press, Green Ronin, and Modiphius where she was line editor for the Achtung! Cthulhu line. She is also the designer of her own ENnie-nominated steampunk game: Cogs, Cakes & Swordsticks. https://www.chaosium.com/lynne-hardy
  8. 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
  9. YSDC folks who like using period (1920s-style) newspaper props to inspire or enhance their games of Lovecraftian dread, might be interested in a new product released yesterday by we mad cultists at Cthulhu Reborn. Dateline: Lovecraft is 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 There is a lengthy description of what's included in the package over on the Cthulhu Reborn blog, but in a nutshell what you get is: a PDF of an entire issue of the Arkham Advertiser, whose period-authentic broadsheet-sized-pages (each about 6 x Letter/A4) is crammed with news, editorials, advertisements, and everything else you'd expect in a newspaper. Overall there are something like 200 items, making up 40,000 words. That might sound like a surprising amount for a 12-page newspaper, but real-world newspapers from the 1920s were pretty densely packed with information, so we've tried to emulate that as much as possible. Within the articles -- some outwardly mundane, others not so much -- we've dropped a wealth of quirky hooks which could be linked up to inspire new Lovecraftian tales or worked in as clues or background colour to your ongoing Miskatonic Valley campaign. a second 58-page PDF which serves as a kind of Guidebook -- providing some ideas about how to make physical props using the newspaper PDF, how to turn newspaper content into clues or on-ramps for an investigative scenario. This guide also includes an exhaustive set of indices to help you track down any person, place, or telephone number mentioned somewhere in the newspaper text. Additionally the guide has a campaign frame "Inkhounds of the Miskatonic Valley" which suggests a specific style of campaign which puts Arkham's news centre-stage, and an example scenario which demonstrates (one way) of exploiting the pieces of the Dateline: Lovecraft newspaper to good Lovecraftian-RPG-type effect. For some samples of what these PDFs contain, you can check out this preview link for the guidebook (which also shows some captures of the newspaper copy itself). There are also a few pictures of newspaper pages below. Our vision for Dateline: Lovecraft is for it to be a system-agnostic resource which can equally support any of the numerous RPGs that take inspiration from Lovecraft's creations, and particularly the brooding 1920s/1930s college town of Arkham. We'd also like to be able to support this core product with a range of free supplements which showcase different writers' ideas and/or scenarios which are inspired by, or otherwise linked to, pieces found in the Arkham Advertiser issue which forms the core of the PDF product. To allow for that to happen (and pay writers and artists what they deserve), we've elected to release Dateline: Lovecraft as a commercial product ... but with the pledge that all profits we earn from sales will go towards commissioning free add-ons. As an example, we have already released one tie-in scenario, "Help Wanted" (written by the talented Jo Kreil, and illustrated by our go-to artist, Reuben Dodd). This 20-page PDF is available right now as a free download from the Cthulhu Reborn blog with game stats for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition. A version of this same scenario is also available on RPGNow and DrivethruRPG, but for licensing reasons those versions are system-independent. Jo's scenario is a short investigative piece based entirely in Arkham, exploring a set of dark deeds which centre upon a strange series of "help wanted" advertisements that have been appearing in issues of the Arkham Advertiser. Why do these quirky ads ask for such strangely-specific skills ... and why do the people who reply to them inevitably end up disappearing? And what (if anything) do these strange events have to do with an 18th Century self-styled wizard from Arkham's dark past? As we've done with many of our Convicts-related scenarios, Jo has provided multiple Mythos explanations for the odd goings-on in her scenario, giving the GM options when weaving it into his or her own campaign. We hope that folks here at YSDC will consider taking a look at Dateline: Lovecraft and if they grab a copy and decide they like it, also spread the word to other like-minded folks who might also appreciate this style of product. We have a pipeline of writers we'd love to commission to create more free stuff, but can only afford to do so if the core product sells copies. Enjoy! And may your Arkham tales always make good on HPL's creepy words -- "centuries of dark brooding had given to crumbling, whisper-haunted Arkham a peculiar vulnerability as regards such shadows" Dean (from Adelaide)
  10. Hi there, YSDC is above all else responsible for my obsession with that group-storytelling format known as the RPG. It began years ago when I stumbled upon the freely available recordings of Tatters of the King, and immediately was seized with a reverence for the unique oblivion that horror can instill. Hastur has been my favorite Mythos deity ever since, and one might even say I have been possessed... but anyway. I'm ready to give back. Weekly I will release here the recordings of a homebrew adventure, hosted in Bloomington, Indiana, until the players conclude the story, one way or another. At time of writing we are something like 9 sessions in, but for pacing's sake I'll post them one week at a time here. Please forgive my amateurish Keepering; it gets better as we progress.

  11. Cosmic horrors from the Antipodes... coming later in 2018! Cover art by M Wayne Miller.
  12. Just entering layout: PDF release Q2 this year!
  13. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is one of the most important titles in Gothic literature. Even written over 200 years ago, his story remains current and the confrontation between Victor and the Creature still inspires new movies, books and cartoons. In addition to a review, with comments on the written version and the various adaptations that the work has undergone over the years, we have expanded its mythology to be used on the Trail of Cthulhu tables and other GUMSHOE games. Good reading! (Text in portuguese. Translate button at sidebar) http://donjonmaster.blogspot.com/2019/03/donjon-indica-frankenstein-de-mary.html?m=1
  14. The acquisitions team at the National Library of Australia recently approached Chaosium to ask if we were willing to donate TERROR AUSTRALIS to their collection, as part of the NLA's mission of gathering resources "of national significance relating to Australia and the Australian people". We cheerfully said yes, and also sent along a copy of the original Terror Australis, from 1987. Both are masterful works of imagination by home-grown Australian Call of Cthulhu creators. Kotaku covered the acquisition here: https://www.kotaku.com.au/2019/03/call-of-cthulhu-rpgs-national-library-of-australia-donation/
  15. Our latest title, Queen of No Tomorrows by Matt Maxwell, is now available. Part supernatural horror, part crime noir, and set in eighties Los Angeles (and it might as well be a CoC scenario!). Librarian con artist Cait MacReady forges occult tomes, but her latest creation has caught the attention of something magical and terrible. Want to know more? LOS ANGELES, THE EIGHTIES Cait MacReady spends her days in the UCLA library, special collections, restoring old books and saving them from the ravages of time. By night, she works her real job, making copies of antique and occult texts. But don't call them forgeries. She only gives customers exactly what they want. When her ex-lover, now business partner, shows up on behalf of some customers who want a book that isn't written yet, Cait gets suspicious. When she discovers they're from the organization No Tomorrows, she gets scared. And when she finds out that their leader, the enigmatic figure called the Queen, wants a book that only Cait has, she begins to wonder what's real and what she's manufactured on her own. Cait's latest creation, the Smoking Codex, is a work of complete fiction and all her own, nothing but vodka-fueled occult nonsense and heartfelt desire. It's a fake—no history, no power. Or is it? This book takes on a life of its own, and the police get involved as people start to die. Now Cait must somehow manage to stop a thing that has already happened: the book’s secret god is already known. And its name has been spoken. FROM THE AUTHOR "Queen of No Tomorrows is the kind of book that I want to read," says Matt. "I wrote it simply because of that. Instead of placing things in the arcane and rarified (now all-too-familiar and safe) settings of the old and mannered, I wanted to bring cosmic horror and the uncanny out to the sunshine and neon of Los Angeles. Instead of simply revering a period or place, I wanted to poke at things, to see where the horror might show up in the everyday, even in the simple act of creation itself. "Besides, there just aren't enough stories that treat crime like magic, or vice versa." Read it today!

  17. Calling all iPhone carrying, Yog-Sothoth subscribers. This is a shameless plug for the IOS App I have just released on the App Store. It goes something like this: "Mythosia - Store all your CoC Investigators in one place, character stats, skills and weapons all at the tip of your finger. Record game notes, possessions, backstory and spell information with ease. With Weapons linked directly to Skills adding a new weapon to the list is seamless with accurately calculated skill rolls, including halves and fifths."
  18. Over on the Cthulhu Reborn blog, we have recently announced our next freebie PDF book, Convicts & Cthulhu. This is a 50,000+ word sourcebook which aims to provide CoC Keepers and players to run scenarios and campaigns set in the earliest eras of Australian history -- the "convict era". We will be releasing some sneak peeks and previews over the next few weeks, with the full product (hopefully) being available for general release in June. You can see the archive of all Convicts & Cthulhu related postings/previews by clicking this link. At the moment there's just the initial announcement, but more material is coming soon.

  21. "I'm recording these words under some mental strain. I've run out of the drug that was calming my brain" New from Chaosium! - HP LOVECRAFT'S DAGON FOR BEGINNING READERS HPL's classic story DAGON, retold in anapaestic tetrameter by R.J. Ivankovic, the 'genius poet-artist' (Geek & Sundry) who also created HP Lovecraft's Call of Cthulhu for Beginning Readers. "By the end of tonight I will surely be dead.

  23. Over on the Cthulhu Reborn blog, I have posted my retrospective of gaming releases from 2018 which have some kind of "Lovecraftian" connection. There were actually a lot of these (despite the number of Call of Cthulhu new titles being a bit down compared to previous years). The retrospective is split into five parts -- it covers a lot of territory, so is a long-ish read. If you're just interested in an overall summary of the 2018 releases, that's all in part 1. Part 1: Capsule summary of 2018 Lovecraftian RPG releases Part 2: Standout products; Chaosium Cal of Cthulhu titles Part 3: Licensee releases; Pelgrane; Magazines Part 4: Miskatonic Repository; Lovecraftian products from further afield Part 5: Kickstarters yet to fulfil; General industry trends I hope that this attempt to capture the breadth and diversity of "Lovecraftian" influences in last year's gaming releases is helpful and/or interesting to YSDCers. Fingers-crossed I haven't missed anything major ... but if you spot something, let me know and I'll try to update the postings. Dean (from Adelaide)
