Where does the time go?
I’ll start things off with some personal news – Sentinel Hill Press, the imprint of the Arkham Gazette, is now a Chaosium licensee. We’ll be launching a Kickstarter soon for issue #3. I’ll be sure to announce it here as well as the Arkham Gazette blog. We also wrapped up our 31 day October-ganza project on the blog there; here’s an overview.
There are, as ever, loads of Kickstarter projects on-going
- Cthulhu: Strange Aeons, the sixth or seventh (?) different near-future sci-fi Lovecraftian setting RPG I’ve seen, is raising money. Not my cup of tea, but might be yours. (For the records they are End Time, Once Men [possibly those two are the same setting), Cthulhu Rising, Cthulhu Tech, and Cthulhu Adventus. I probably missed some though…)
- It may not be overtly Lovecraftian, but it did spring from the warped mind of John Tynes and the gents at Arc Dream – Puppetland, an updated version of the groundbreaking indie game where you played puppets in a nightmare world. I should correct that name to John Scott Tynes, but if I learned anything from Shadows of Yog-Sothoth, is that you should avoid a John Scott…
- Finally, Golden Goblin Press have provided a rather hard-on-themselves update for De Horrore Cosmico.
The crew at Protodimension magazine have released issue #21. Check it out.
Good Friends of Jackson Elias completed their discussion of The Thing on the Doorstep.
Let us close with a Mythos (and more) potpouri:
- The Necronomicon (Evil Dead version) showed up on The Amazing World of Gumball.
- Chaosium is having a sale.
- Need found footage of unexplainable lights in the sky?
- There’s a day left in a rather Bundle of Tentacles sale.
- Ken and Robin continue to talk about stuff of all kinds: Episode 112 – The Dracula Dossier, writing on food, Dr. Margaret Murray, etc. & Episode 113 – Bram Stoker (but sadly not Stroker Ace), archetype vs. customized PCs, Marie Antoinette, and recommendations of all sorts.
- Skirmisher (of Cthulhu Live fame) has put out The Mythos Society Guide to New England; sounds interesting but I’m waiting for more reviews.
- Finally my friend Matt Madigan is Kickstarting his next ‘dark noire’ crime book Down. If you like your detective fiction jet black, give it a look.
