  1. Fascinating! I'm relatively new to the hobby, but in what I've been able to study its history, I can't recall dual starter / sourcebook box sets being made that way. I thought the Runequest Sartar Set was going to be just a Starter Set, for example. Sounds like a smart move, since this way veteran players with the rulebooks will still be interested in these products. I guess my doubt then would be if that means hardbacks aren't going to to be made for those products, and if they are, how much crossover could they potentially have. Excited either way!
  2. As @SentinelHillPress covered most of what's been published for Gaslight and Dark Ages, I just wanted to add that, surprisingly, Dreamlands has had even less support from Chaosium. I can only think of The Dreaming Stone as a direct supplement. Sure, you can go there in and there are occasional scenarios in old collections and some write-up about it in the Kingsport sourcebook, but not much else. You could also look at ArcDream's The Sense of The Sleight-of-Hand Man campaign.
  3. No Man's Land is a pretty rare one, and WW1 setting has been virtually unexplored ever since, so that'll be a great addition. Tatters is currently on POD at DriveThruRPG so don't know how scarce it really is. Same goes for Spawn of Azathoth, which had a 2004 edition, I think. I would love to see Dark Designs and Sacraments of Evil, which are both Gaslight scenario collections. It would be a nice complement to the eventual release of 7E Gaslight. Same goes for The Dreaming Stone campaign for Dreamlands, which is also kind of hard to find nowadays.
  4. Jon Hook recently mentioned a Baltimore sourcebook called Mobtown in a recent interview in The Good Friends of Jackson Elias podcast.
  5. I guess Rick will soon answer this more thoroughly, but in a recent video he uploaded to the CoC Facebook group, he showcased two options for the box set: a 1 inch rules box set, and the larger 2 inch box set that includes all supplements.
  6. I'm currently running Tatters of the King, and as @alter mentioned, John Tynes' Hastur Mythos is pretty much essential reading. I use his vision of Hastur as entropy, and show The King in Yellow's corruption through surreal dream visions, heightened melancholy and the characters seeing iconography from the play subtly appear in different places. I interpret that sense of corruption as internal, but it could be noticeably by how the characters behave; deeply introspective, spouting obscure references from time to time, constantly on edge, or weirdly passive.
  7. I recall the first couple of prologue episodes from the livestream were uploaded to podcast platforms, but are there any plans to upload the rest (and other materials, potentially)?
  8. I can think of Crimson Letters (Keeper's Rulebook), Paper Chase and Edge of Darkness (Starter Set), Missed Dues (Keeper Screen Pack), Saturnine Chalice and Dead Light (Dead Light and Other Dark Turns), The Crack'd and Crooked Manse (Mansions of Madness), Spirit of Industry (New Tales of The Miskatonic Valley), Whispers of Harlem (Harlem Unbound), Scritch Scratch. These come to mind in terms of what's available for 7e that I've read, but there probably are more, and even more if you begin counting previous editions and such (althought I've heard that the scenarios from the first editions of the game had a problem structuring resolutions outside of combat.)
  9. You're right. Totally understandable! Merely speaking from curiosity. As for the general state of the POD situation, you're making available two of the most sought after products in the game's history; I think no one can say with a straight face that you aren't listening to the fans. I think I speak for many when I say that we trust how you decide to go forward with this. From what I've seen, CoC has grown a lot in the last couple of years, and making new people have the possibility to engage with the game's rich history while they're also enjoying the consistently excelent new stuff being produced shows a commitment that goes way beyond what most other game companies are willing to do. It sounds challenging, and even if a vocal minority doesn't see that, many of us deeply appreciate you going the extra mile.
  10. This is a really great resource for those looking for a comprehensive guide of what to seek out for a Lovecraft Country campaign. Really recommend it!
  11. I originally got H.P. Lovecraft's Arkham as a PDF, but when I decided to get a physical copy, I opted for the original Arkham Unveiled (I got it cheap as a used copy on the second hand market). The main deciding factor was just how awful the CGI art and the layout is on the 2003 version. From what I recall from comparing versions on the YSDC wiki, the only real additions in terms of content were the inclusion of Dreams in the Witch House, CoC d20 stats, and The Book of Uncle Silas (good scenario). As for the descriptions of Arkham itself, I think they're basically the same. I also recall that @SentinelHillPressmentioned that Arkham Unveiled is also their favorite version on their first Miskatonic Country Buyers Guide, so they might have more insight on that. Also, Mike Mason recently mentioned on a Facebook group that he's mainly working on the Arkham & Lovecraft Country book(s?) this year, so maybe they're not thaaat far away from being realesed (2022?). Anyway, I think Arkham Unveiled probably has you covered until then, especially when you also have the great M.U. sourcebook.
  12. I know it's not the same thing, but last time I checked it was available as POD on DriveThru RPG. At least the "let it eternal lie". It'd be interesting to see what the company considers its biggest mishaps, although I understand how that could be insulting to some of the people involved. Tonally, I've read this is the most Lovecraftian campaign they've published (along with Tatters of The King), so it may need some heavy homebrewing to fit as a Pulp-style campaign. Maybe someone who has ran it could give better insight, tho. At least regarding Tatters (which seems to be on a similar wavelength and which I'm currently running), I can see how maybe someone could pulp it up, but at the same time, it'll probably go against the atmosphere and psychology of the campaign. Maybe Low Pulp?
  13. This is amazing news. Should we expect this and Horror On The Orient express to be released simultaneously? I'll definitely get both.
  14. I think that stating on the list that the Horror On The Orient Express 7e update will be done by 2022-2023 can be a little bit misleading, considering they just said that the 7e update of Beyond The Mountains of Madness is at least four years away, and Rick mentioned here that BTMoM has a higher update priority than HoTOE. They've been pretty transparent about that it will be probably more than that.
