J.P. Chapleau has posted an interview I did with him about the Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion and the Arkham Gazette:
Additionally the Good Friends of Jackson Elias released their latest episode, in which they talk about Masks of Nyarlathotep and its Companion and interview Adam Crossingham as well as Keeper Steve Ellis, who talks about his experiences porting MoN into 7th edition (and using the Companion).
(Sorry for the lack of updates recently – I’ve been using up all my spare time wrapping up issue #3 of the Arkham Gazette!)
Sixtystone have released their first book of the year… Cathulhu
From the blurb –
Welcome to Cathulhu, the Call of Cthulhu alternative setting where feline sleuths investigate the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos.
Cats are mysterious, self-contained creatures. Both wild and domestic in nature, they are silent observers of all that goes on around them.
In Cathulhu, discover the secret life of the cat as a Dreamlands warrior and a Waking World sleuth. Cats are the secret allies of humanity in the fight against cosmic horror; confronting overlooked machinations orchestrated from the sewers, tracking down sorcerers and cultists in the Waking World, and taking the fight to Nyarlathotep’s minions in the Dreamlands with the Cat Armies.
Fully compatible with 6th Ed CoC. Catnip not included.
UPDATE : Dean Engelhardt, who laid out the book and provided much of the art shares more on the book, including some page previews on his blog.
(not to be confused with The Call of Cathulhu)
In case you missed it, there has been some CoC news recently.
First off, Oscar Rios (that’s a link to his blog there on the right) has announced a new Chaosium licensee – Golden Goblin Press – as well as their first project, “Island of Ignorance“, which is a part of a Lovecraft quote and not a popular Spring Break destination. Contents include work by Dan Harms and two Lovecraft Country scenarios, so definitely worth watching. Look for it this year, hopefully?
Next up, Sixtystone Press unleashes “Lost in the Lights” a cult sourcebook and modern-day scenario by Jeff Moeller set in Las Vegas. Not even an apartment fire (Good Luck, Chris!) can stop this one, albeit in PDF form so far. Let’s hope Sixtystone’s giant backlog of great books will follow on soon… Investigator Weapons vol. 2 is up next I believe. Go and get yourself a copy now (and the nifty editable handouts PDF) and give them the funds to get their next book going ASAP. I’ve already got my copy and will report if the book provides details of the dangers of Bat Country.
