  • RPG Biography
    I've been playing roleplaying games since 1980, starting with D&D and then progressing to other TSR games. Where I live, there weren't any alternatives back then. My introduction to the BRP came in the pages of Dragon and White Dwarf magazines (via reviews and advertisements), but it would not be until 1986 that I played my first Chaosium game - Stormbringer. I got Call of Cthulhu soon afterwards, and haven't stopped since.

  1. Well, let’s hope Gaslight is supported better this time round. Are there any books/products beyond The Curse of Seven in the works? Stygian Fox have produced some excellent books for the era, but the best sourcebook (IMO) is tantalisingly beyond reach of most new CoC gamers - Pagan Publishing’s The Golden Dawn. I wonder if something can be arranged with Pagan Publishing/Adam Scott Glancy to bring it back from the dead and updated for the new edition.. Or, perhaps, Chaosium can reach out to Kevin Ross to write a similar book on the Order.
  2. I've read that Cthulhu Now was one of the game's best-selling supplements. Any truth to that? I would suggest the popularity of Delta Green shows there is an appetite for modern adventures. I haven't dived into it yet, but the new Impossible Landscapes sounds epic, on par with the best that has been written for the Classic era. What I would personally like to see are expanded editions of Unseen Masters and Goatswood and Less Pleasant Places, but perhaps relocating them to the 1960's or 1970's, evoking the horrors of those times.
  3. How about: A reprint of the first edition box set? Or use the first edition box art but update the rulebook and 1920's sourcebook, include maps featuring Mythos spots worldwide, cardboard figures (a la Pathfinder's tokens), play aids, and a book of new adventures from the game's early contributors.
  4. The Bran Mak Morn books by Howard, Wagner, Smith & Tierney
  5. Can you reveal what other old titles are being considered for reprint/POD?
  6. He is also an occasional visitor at the Yog-Sothoth.com forums (as “WinstonP.”): https://www.yog-sothoth.com/forums/topic/34352-the-dare-news/?tab=comments#comment-362933 https://www.yog-sothoth.com/forums/topic/31571-kickstarter-sentinel-hill-the-dare-one-shot/?tab=comments#comment-333382
  7. Have you read the stories dealing with The King in Yellow and Him Who is Not to be Named? The Hastur Cycle published by Chaosium collects the most important ones. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/131406/The-Hastur-Cycle
  8. "Mysteria Matris Oblitae" by Dennis Detwiller in the Pagan Publishing book, Mortal Coils. Excellent adventure, one of Detwiller's best imo.
  9. If you're going to pick up an older edition of this campaign, Curse of Cthulhu is the one to get. It has two extra adventures you won't find in Day of the Beast or Fungi from Yuggoth ("The Case" and "Wail of the Witch") and color plates.
  10. I very much agree with all the praise that has been heaped on the book - it is magnificent. Besides the core book, I have also ordered the two adventures on DriveThruRPG to demonstrate my commitment. Is there news on future products (can’t find any on the website)? A Forest of Tantrevalles sourcebook?
  11. There is archaeological evidence that the Romans brought East Asian slaves to Britain: https://www.history.com/news/possible-chinese-skeletons-could-rewrite-roman-history
  12. Since Chaosium is making this push to make the game more welcoming, how about including more Asian-looking characters in the art? The characters don't have to be Asian (although that would be nice!), just make them look Asian so gamers from that part of the world will feel they aren't being excluded. How about it?
