What is there that cries in the wind and streaming rain?

I am always glad when Fall (and especially the month of October) comes around.  We have some RPG news with witch to start the month:

  • The Horrors of War Kickstarter has successfully concluded.  While it fell short of the $32k stretch-goal, they did pretty well all things considered.
  • Golden Goblin Press have announced the stretch-goal I was waiting for – Terror on the Borderlands.  The first part is unlocked at $27,500 and includes two scenarios (from Oscar Rios and Chad Bouchard); the second at $30k includes three scenarios by new authors.
  • Soldiers of Pen and Ink, Adam Gauntlett’s Spanish Civil War era scenario for Trail of Cthulhu has been released. 72 pages (for about $18) of his usual high-caliber gaming material can now be yours.
  • I’ve also set the goal of posting something every day to the Sentinel Hill Press blog in advance of our release of issue #3 of the Arkham Gazette.

So grab a cup of apple cider and enjoy the mellow voiced terror of Vincent Price-

Camping is a thing in the summer, right?

S’mores!

Gather ’round children, and let us tell a tale of gaming news…

Chaosium’s website revamp has finally been completed (though there appear to be a few hiccups). They’ve got a new BRP sourcebook for using varieties of Western magic in a game.

The Miskatonic University Podcast crew have put out a new episode (sans Keeper Murph, no doubt out harvesting wild mushrooms or building a brass war-golem, the usual stuff) providing their usual news roundup, Gef the talking mongoose, rat-things (including a source of inspiration I proposed), and the hosts discuss what draws them to the Cthulhu Mythos.

Feed the Shoggoth met its initial funding goal. Woot.

Golden Goblin Press’ Tales of the Crescent City backer release got a very favorable review from DieHard GameFan. They also had a preview for one of the stretch-goals for their next Kickstarter De Horrore CosmicoTerror on the Borderlands, a series of four loosely connected scenarios set in the Near East.

Yog-Sothoth.com is having a fundraiser to cover travel expenses and to supply new material for good old Yoggi.e
