It is that time of year again – ENnies voting season has arrived. There are loads of Lovecraftian products in the running this year – The Sense of the Sleight-of-Hand ManEternal Lies, Achtung! Cthulhu, the Call of Cthulhu 7th Ed. quickstart rules – loads of stuff. Go vote!
Tentaclii has posted links to free versions of two books from H.P. Lovecraft’s library – A Book of New England Legends and Folklore (1883) and Nooks and Corners of the New England Coast (1875).
The print version of Tales of the Crescent Cityhas arrived at the noisome warrens of Golden Goblin Press and are now being shipped to the Kickstarter’s happy backers. That’s some fast turn-around Oscar. 🙂
As June segues into July, we finally have started to see some actual Call of Cthulhu releases (at least available to a few of us). I’ve only started digging into my backer PDF copy of Tales of the Crescent City, but I’m really enjoying it so far. I look forward to getting my print copy shortly. Oscar, apparently having made some dark pact with the forces of the Mythos, is not just gearing up for the Kickstarter for their Invictus scenario collection De Horrore Cosmico, but is already plotting their next book. I maaaaay have been one of those people he emailed…
Curious what the the first poster for NecronomiCon 2015 will look like? Behold! (as an added bonus, there’s also a timeline for HPL in 1915 at that site.)
As for Podcasts, only one this time – Ken and Robin talked about… Mummies, George V vs. the Flying Dutchman, and an interview so historically geeky that it put a smile on my face. Dissolution of the monasteries? My catnip!
Oh look, as a backer of the Failed Anatomies Kickstarter, I got an email with a PDF to playtest the new Delta Green rules… Hmm… “This manuscript is confidential and under copyright. Do not distribute it to anyone else…” Eh, who cares what that says, I’m going to spoil this thing… wait… someone at the door? Candygram? I didn’t order a—
This /might/ be what I saw at the door. Folks, do NOT mess with the Delta Green partnership.
A unsettling email arrived today from Golden Goblin Press bearing a malign link to a most diabolical document… my back PDF for Tales of the Crescent City arrived! Very pretty (and the first professional CoC release of the year!) It’s a gorgeous book and I look forward to seeing in in print.
Speaking of Badger, he has officially launched the Kickstarter for his new card game Feed the Shoggoth. I had the pleasure of playtesting it NecronomiCon in 2013 and it was a blast. Definitely check it out.
Finally, I’m hoping to have the next issue of the Arkham Gazette finished soon. We’re at almost 25k words currently, with an estimated total length of 28k or 29k, depending how long my scenario runs. Soon, soon…
Sorry for the lack of updates; things have been hectic around TiP Central due to various IRL issues. Ideally I would be talking about a few odds and ends from 2013, including the various Lovecraftian RPG podcasts, my favorite releases from the year, etc.
