  1. 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 be
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. This is amazing news. Should we expect this and Horror On The Orient express to be released simultaneously? I'll definitely get both.
  6. 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.
  7. Oh, didn't know that one was Hastur related. I love that setting. How much does the scenario offers in terms of setting information? I'd love to set something in Franco's Spain.
  8. The Mysteries of Mesoamerica book from Pagan actually has like 80 pages on background information. I think that would definitely be the place to go for what you're looking. I recall there being some copies left in the Arkham Bazaar, and of Mortal Coils as well.
  9. The campaign Tatters of The King really is the place to go. Ripples From Carcosa is a nice multi-era collection of scenarios dealing with Hastur. Also, there's a great write-up on the Hastur Mythos on Delta Green: Countdown, if you can get your hands around a copy.
  10. I've seen most of the POD titles are early 7th edition releases, before the new production values were set. Can we also expect Secrets of Tibet as a POD soon? I think it can work really well as a complement to Children of Fear, or the classic Tatters of the King
  11. I see there no longer are any copies of the Core book in the US warehouse. Will they be restocked eventually?
  12. To anyone interested, Rick recently mentioned a potential January release for the HoTOE reprint in the CoC Facebook group. Fingers crossed.
  13. As a very happy costumer, I trust your gut feelings. Excited for what surprises I might find tucked in the back in the future!
  14. Thanks for the guidance @oldschooltommy! Was the Terror Australis map for the whole country? Now I wonder if the new version has one, but can see why it wouldn't.
  15. Thanks, Rick. Great to know that! Is there a particular rationale behind which products include it? I know it's just a nice little added bonus, and it really won't determine if I buy a product or not, but now I'm curious. Love all the work you've all being doing with CoC 7th. Amazing news! Really excited about those reprints, in general.
  16. I have Berlin The Wicked City, Masks of Nyarlathotep and Down Darker Trails, apart from the base set for CoC 7e, and was pleased to see the first two came with a map (and understand why DDT didn't, since it's a more general setting). This made me think about which other supplements include a map. I know bigger versions of some are available at the Red bubble store, but which ones already come with the smaller version included? Would love to know if Reign of Terror and Harlem Unbound come with one.
  17. I wonder if that Guide was what eventually became the newly released Miskatonic Country Scenarios: A Keeper's Guide from Sentinel Hill Press: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/233636/Miskatonic-Country-Scenarios-A-Keepers-Guide?src=newest
  18. I imagine Chaosium is having a lot on their hands at the moment with the recent Mansions of Madness print release and the upcoming The Children of Fear campaign (really excited for that one!),so should we still expect this reprint version to be available soon?
  19. I love that idea. I'll be stealing that for my games. Some prior prep will be needed to get the tone of the excerpts right, but I love how it builds into the atmosphere.
  20. Amazing news! I'm one of those people who got into the game after the initial release of HotOE and isn't willing to pay the eBay prices. Are the books being planned to be made available as hardcovers?
  21. As of now, Chaosium has only released a sample of Cthulhu Icarus in Cthulhu Through The Ages. There are rumors of a campaign or full-blown supplement in the works. Stygian Fox's Salo's Glory is a scenario on that setting, tho. In the old Miskatonic University Monographs there were a couple of sci-fi supplements under the name "Cthulhu Rising". The scenario collection Strange Aeons II had "Time After Time", which is set on a space ship as well.
  22. Masks is usually regarded as the absolute classic campaign not just of CoC but RPGs in general. That said, Horror on The Orient Express and Beyond The Mountains of Madness are also constantly mentioned in those discussions. Masks is a world-scale sandbox and a little bit more pulpy and action-packed than the rest, from what I've read HoTOE is more stylish and linear, and BTMoM is more of a slow burn and atmospheric endeavor. I can't comment that much on the latter two because I don't own them, but I also highly recommend Tatters of The King, which I got on POD from DriveThru RPG. It's consider
  23. As klecser mentioned, the Starter set is not just a compilation of "easy" scenarios, but actually some of the most classic and well regarded scenarios in Call of Cthulhu's history adapted for 7th Edition and updated with art and many advice on how to run them. I also prefer them to the ones in Doors To Darkness, since I think they give a clearer example of the main themes and ways the game usually plays like, and give a ton of lore and seeds that can be used later (Dead Man Stomp as a prelude to Masks of Nyarlathotep is something I've seen quite a bit). Nothing against Doors To Darkness,
  24. In terms of 7th Edition published material, all of the Starter Set, Crimson Letters (from the Keeper's Rulebook) and Missed Dues (from the Keeper Screen) are pretty roleplay based scenarios; IIRC, my group didn't have any combat in them. There's also Dead Light and Other Turns, a two scenario booklet that comes with two scenarios on the more investigative and roleplay centric side of things. If you dig the setting and don't mind very adult subject matter, the ones in Berlin: The Wicked City are also more on that wavelenght, and if you want to go modern, you could seek out Stygian Fox's The Thi
  25. Since the livestream is done, is there any scheduled date for an eventual release of The Dead Within?
