Grab-baggery

Let us get to it, in no particular order:

Pagan Publishing’s Kickstarter for Horrors of War: A Covenant with Death reached its initial goals… eagerly awaiting news of an stretch-goals.  Huzzah!!

Modiphius has announced they are working on an Achtung! Cthulhu movie.  Really?!?

Paul of Cthulhu (from Yog-Sothoth.com) has posted a short video of a visit to London’s The Atlantis Bookshop, an occult book emporium of considerable age.  More videos are available to YSDC patrons.

Golden Goblin Press continue to offer glimpses of art from De Horrore Cosmico.  As Oscar reports: “Currently all of the scenarios are written. In fact, two are ready for final edits, two are in editing, and the last two should be back from re-writes over the weekend”.  Skips, is that you?

Dan Harms has been conducting a reconnaissance of Lovecraftian sites in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  Hmmm… very suspicious.

A smattering of post-GenCon reports continue to filter in:

  • Matthew Sanderson (of the Good Friends of Jackson Elias) was nearly killed by horseradishes
  • Chaosium minion Dustin adds his report
  • and RPPR posted their first panel recording – Diversity in Gaming
  • There’s also a video of Goodman Games panel

Finally, we have a new episode of Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff – covering Dracula’s castle, the Oak Island mystery, and answer a listener day to come up with an advanced civilization lacking fine motor control (and no, they don’t say “give them scotch”).  It was recorded pre-GenCon so they don’t spend the entire show calling themselves “ENnie awarding winning…”

Herber’s Notes, Kults, and Shoggoths

Some sample “Feed the Shoggoth” cards

A few items from the grab bag today:

  • Paul of Cthulhu is selling off some of his CoC manuscript collection to raise money to cover server costs – Trail of Tsathoggua and Goatswood and Less Pleasant Places are both on the block.  I wish I had the spare change to grab the former.
  • Speaking of manuscripts – Paul has also made available to Community Patrons at YSDC a glimpse of the various developmental material Keith gave him, including notes for Arkham Unveiled, Return to Dunwich, and several scenarios.  Really a delight to see it all.
  • The Good Friends of Jackson Elias have released another episode, the second in their series about their favorite non-CoC horror games; this time they talk about Kult.  Fun fact, I played Kult once and only after figured out it was based on Gnosticism.  I thought it was just mopey because it was Swedish.
  • Finally, the Kickstarter for Badger McInnes’ “Feed the Shoggoth” card game is getting closer.  Check out some preview material here on the Facebook page.
