I can’t say it better than Dan Harms; Chris is a good guy and can definitely use a little help.

Papers Falling from an Attic Window

Chris Huth, an artist and layout person for Pelgrane Press, recently lost a great deal of his possessions in an apartment fire.  Simon Rogers at Pelgrane is now diverting 100% of PDF revenue and 50% of print revenue until Friday to help him out.   If you’ve been putting off any Trail of Cthulhu products, whether that’s the Occult Guide to London, or Bookhounds of London, or The Armitage Files, this would be an excellent time to pick them up.

Sixtystone births a(n e)book!

Good news on the Call of Cthulhu gaming front- Sixtystone Press (who I’ve gently mocked for not having yet published anything yet) has unveiled their first book The Investigators Weapons Volume 1: The 1920s and 30s.  Huzzah!

Written by Hans-Christian Vortisch (who kindly contributed to the Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion) and with a cover by Chris Huth, this is the first of a three-volume series, in this case for the Classic era (the 20s and 30s) that provides-

a comprehensive collection of weapons available to stalwart investigators of the Cthulhu Mythos and their crazed cultist opponents.

Investigator Weapons covers handguns, rifles, shotguns, submachine guns, machine guns, flamethrowers, melee weapons, explosives, and special ammunition; and gathers together all the spot rules for injury, environmental conditions, and firearms combat in one place, as well as introducing many optional rules for enhanced play.”

I’ve had the pleasure of reading it and give it an enthusiastic thumbs up.  Go out and buy two.  Hopefully the print version will follow soon after, so I can happily put it up on my shelf.
