    According to our shipping agent: Mol Tribute due in Southampton UK on March 7th. Xin Los Angeles is due in Longbeach California on March 6th XIN CHI WAN is due at Botany Bay on February 25th. Port Botany is Sydney Australia's container port. (BTW, this is the site where Lieut.

The good folks over at Chaosium have given us a sneak preview of a new scenario they're getting ready to publish and we thought we'd take it out for a test drive. No previous experience with Call of Cthulhu™ is necessary. NOTE: To discourage those who book a seat at the table and then don't show up, we've had to implement a policy of charging for gaming reservations. For your $5 fee, you'll get a seat at the table and we'll provide tasty refreshments! Seats are limited and reservations are required. Book your ticket now.
