  1. Since Pookie did a review of Doors to Darkness (http://rlyehreviews.blogspot.com/2016/10/the-call-of-cthulhu-ii-starter.html), is there any update on when it will be released to the general public?
  2. I think its a great setting, and the actual published versions, whether they be for Pathfinder (meh) or for Mongoose Runequest/Legend (yay) are excellent sourcebooks. The Xoth web page, still with lots of stuff on it, is at: http://xoth.net/blog/
  3. Ben, I hope my game had some small part to do with those sales. The players, many of whom had played other BRP games (mostly Cthulhu) thought it went well. I used a Sword and Sorcery Setting (Xoth) from Mongoose/Morton Braten, but otherwise, it was mostly in the background. Printed up character sheets, pictures of characters on the sheets, all served to help the players get into the final battle against the minions of the Snake Cult serving the Necromancer.
  4. I think I am going to try and run Magic World again next year. Hopefully I will get a few female players this time around (the one pre-signed never showed up). However, the five male players had fun with the fast play, quick combat, and defeating the necromantic threat.
  5. I wish I had seen this before GenCon. However, I am proud to say that my Magic World game went stunningly well and the players enjoyed the heck out of themselves. I think a few even decided they were going to look into picking up copies.
  6. Thanks gentlemen! Hopefully enthusiasm will be there for the game, since it won't be the easiest to find. Magic World isn't the first thing to pop into people's heads. But spread the word and hopefully I will be full up by the time Gencon starts.
  7. A little bit of self promotion...and because it is the only Magic World event being run at Gencon 2015: RPG1569388 The Mad Necromancer's Lament The mad necromancer has taken over a nearby fallen shrine to a forgotten god. The local noble has called for adventurers to root out the evil. Friday 2-6 pm Come out and have fun. The adventure has been recently playtested and received great reviews.
  8. I have used numerous soundtracks from my Ipod depending on what genre I am playing. But just for fantasy, I can draw from: Age of Conan, Burning Crusade (WoW expansion), Conan the Barbarian, Dark Age of Camelot, Dungeons and Dragons Soundtrack, The Mummy, World of Warcraft Original Soundtrack, World of Warcraft: Taverns of Azeroth,13th Warrior, and 300. Admittedly I have to be choosy with the WoW soundtracks for anyone who plays regularly, but the Tavern Soundtrack is particularly useful. I have three albums specifically for rp in Egypt. Nox Arcana and Midnight Syndicate albums are usually pretty good for horror rp. Stargate, Stargate Atlantis and the 4 soundtracks for the new Battlestar Galactica all have decent pieces for sci-fi rp.
  9. I missed the savings since I ordered before it was posted. Now I am just waiting for Lulu to print the books and send them off.
  10. Considering I am an American, and a college professor (my PhD is in late 19th/early 20th century British medical history...too long a story to explain) I'll take anything that has a least a grounding in history for what it is: an rpg that uses real history to make things fun in a fictional version of it. Heck, I even like Maelstrom and 7th Sea, two completely different ends of the spectrum as far as historical veracity goes. Oh, and add in Lace and Steel to the mix, Mighty Fortress from TSR, Flashing Blades, and a few other sourcebooks, and well you have exahusted 17th century roleplaying. This will be a cool addition to those games. If its anywhere near the Rome BRP sourcebook, it will be worth every penny. Oh, and if you need playtesters, I have the perfect group, and who are pretty experienced. Send me a PM if you want more details. Matt
  11. I just ordered my copy from Lulu and remarkably something that seemed interesting and was a suggestion: Medieval Mysteries RPG by Simon Washbourne. I've never heard of that one, but for $12 US, I figured it would be worth a punt. Prof Matt
  12. This sounds like the coolest game ever. I cannot wait for next summer. Considering my Master's Degree is on 17th century English society and the ECW, this hits every bell and whistle I want from a semi-historical based game. Matt
  13. I think I am finally going to get my act together and write up the Cthulhu Gaslight scenario I have had sitting around for a while and play enough time to know it works. Samhain, pagan druidic cults, decadent gaslight drawing rooms, add in a dash of absinthe and a mad artist, and you get something hopefully worth including into the scenario contest.
  14. I actually have the printed version with the problem I indicated. I guess I was wondering if the pdf version had the same issues. Now I know it does.
  15. I have a question for anyone else who has the deadtree version of the Berlin 61 monograph. On page 16, the page begins with... "...concentration camps was too much to bear." Then talks about the holocaust, housing, entertainment, traveling but it is also cut off at the end of the travel section, ending... "While both transportation systems should..." The next page, page 17, begins with GM help. So what am I missing? I know that the section seems to start near the end of something and doesn't finish properly. Do I have a bad copy or is there something wrong with the printed pdf? Other than that,however, I am enjoying the monograph a good deal. Thanks.
