First off – I’ve put out a new call for submissions to the Arkham Gazette for our fourth (!) issue. Please give it a read and consider submitting something. The Gazette lives by the aid of many hands. 🙂
If you’ve somehow not heard, ENnie nominations have been announced, including a whole host of Lovecraftian-related projects have honored:
- Horror on the Orient Express (2nd Ed)
- Acthung! Cthulhu: Terrors of the Secret War
- Dreamhounds of Paris
- Ken Writes about Stuff: Vol. 2
- Ken and Robin Talk about Stuff
- The Miskatonic University Podcast
Speaking of of the MUP, I had a great chat with Keepers Jon and Murph of the Miskatonic University Podcast about the soon-to-be-released next issue of the Arkham Gazette, long-forgotten witch trails of New Hampshire, and Colours Out of Space. I’m always glad to talk to the MUP crew and it was a special treat to talk a bit about one of my favorite of Lovecraft’s creations.
What else is new in podcast land?
- Since the last update, there’s been a Keeper Dan only episode of the Misk. U. Podcast, in which he recapped the most recent Lovecraftian gaming news.
- The Good Friends of Jackson Elias discussed Lovecraft’s “The Shadow Out of Time”.
- Ken and Robin talked about Hollow Earth Theory and how to barbecue a unicorn; I suspect Ken will always answer Kansas City style.
In other news have Pelgrane Press revealed the subject of their recent countdown – Cthulhu Apocalypse, The Doomsday Edition, which collects the previously released Apocalypse Machine, the Dead White World, and Slaves of the Mother and adds on eight new short scenarios.
Cubicle 7’s World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter continues to recruit assets, crossing over $40k.
I have been doing research on New England’s Colonial gravestone carvers, and drawing upon that research, I’ve put together an annotated list of all those carvers known, including the related sources about each carver. If that pique’s your interest, give it a look. It is still very much a work in progress – I need to regularize all the citations and start adding more links
Let’s conclude with a projects update:
- The Arkham Gazette #3 – issue save scenario is done and laid out (I guess I need to write an intro though); out scenario author Chris Huth is revising “The Queen of Night”. When that it ready, be assured I’ll trumpet the news here.
- My Jackson Elias scenario for the Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion backers is still in progress.
- My unnamed scenario for an unannounced project is in the earliest draft stages – outline only currently, waiting for me to finish the two projects above.
- Our first stretch-goal scenario for the Arkham Gazette Kickstarter backers is done and waiting layout. The other scenario is being worked on and the bonus article is still being written. The former will be released in the near future.
- I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but those projects are what has been on my mind of late.
