“That old lie…”†

(to die pointlessly in a pile of French or Belgian mud, Turkish sand, Iraqi muck, or what have you)

Prolific (and skilled) Trail of Cthulhu author Adam Gauntlett has had a trio of his World War One scenarios bundled up and released in printDulce et Decorum Est collects “Vaterland”, “Dead Horse Corner” and “Sisters of Sorrow” (only the last previously released as a PDF). As with all of his work, I highly recommend it. To date in 2014 Adam has had a hand in creating 3 of the 8 releases I’ve listed on my “New Releases” page. Well done!

Oddly I’ve had the outline of a scenario called “Pro Patria Mori” floating around for over a decade now, though set after the war, since my remit has mostly been the 1920s. Perhaps I should dust that off…

† If you’re unfamiliar with where the collection’s title (or my post’s title) originate, A) call your former schools and complain and B) look here.

Adventures in link mongering

There have been a few worthy bits of news since our last update here. I’m still recuperating from wrapping up the last issue of the Gazette. There also has not been all that much going on the world of Call of Cthulhu and Lovecraftian roleplaying…

The latest fiction collection from Dennis Detwiller – Delta Green: Tales from Failed Anatomies is now available for sale as a PDF.

The gang at the Miskatonic University Podcast have released a new episode: #56, in which they talk about GenCon plans, personal topical limits in gaming, and Yig. Did I mention there fundraising so they can all meet for the first time at GenCon? No? Damn.

Ken and Robin talked about stuff including using ghosts in horror roleplaying and the Comte Saint Germain.

Tentaclii, a blog for all things H.P. Lovecraft, has resumed updating again after a two month break. Too many interesting links to pick just a few – check it out.
