  1. I think the point is humans can not, by definition, think of the very thing we find so incomprehensible that it "breaks" the human psyche. So no human author ( Lovecraft ) or person in an internet forum ( us ) is going to be able to originate and describe said concepts. We approximate this by offering ideas that seem either isolating or frightening or sick or deranged; but perhaps the thing that causes "Mythos madness" is something that is just too beautiful or serene or truthful that it makes our mind snap.
  2. There isn't a QuickStart rules for 13th Age non-Glorantha, let alone 13G. On the 13th Age resource page http://site.pelgranepress.com/index.php/free-13th-age-downloads-and-resources/ there is a 2-hour demo to download ( but it's not Glorantha set ).
  3. Formatting error: Investigator Handbook - Page 176 - Table title "Period Cars and Trucks" should be in Cthulhu-Cristoforo font not "normal" Cristoforo font to match the rest of the book.
  4. The Asylum and Other Tales has many good 1-off adventures ( apart from 1 terrible one ) and Terror From The Stars has good adventures as well. I'd say amalgamate them and 7th ed them and put it out as a new collection of short adventures. Maybe throw in the adventures remaining from the version 1-6 rulebooks that haven't been put into the new Starter Set as well. It would make for an eclectic mix of short adventures for a newbie to run after using up Doors to Darkness. Not every release should be a campaign.
  5. I think Rick means the 7th Ed Quick-Start rules - it had a fairly rudimentary layout initially.
  6. Ok - it's good news that you are updating the DriveThru files as well. Thanks.
  7. Are the pre version 5 PDFs "remastered" or same as the ones from DRiveThru ?
  8. Does this latest reprint include corrections that were discovered after the first printing went to press ?
  9. It's all detailed by Mike here: https://www.yog-sothoth.com/forums/topic/32272-call-of-cthulhu-starter-set/?do=findComment&comment=340992
  10. Thank you for the time you took to research and post this very illuminating <ouch> info.
  11. I use https://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-editor but it isn't free, however it is quite quick to render pages in MoN 7e. You could try their discontinued free app https://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer but I don't remember if it does layers.
  12. Just want to second the problem for those with RED/GREEN colour blindness - RED/BLUE is always a better combo. Probably too late to make the change now though but please, Chaosium, work this into your procedures somehow for the future.
  13. I'm no RQ expert, but isn't the movement rune on Orlanth's shoulder ( if it is the movement rune ) spinning the wrong way around ? Otherwise, fantastic cover and new logo ( but I think the logo needs something to make it pop off the cover art a bit - maybe a small dropshadow, or very thin black outline ? )
  14. I also think it would be useful to give date stamps to the PDF files somewhere ( either in the filename or in the PDF itself on the credits page ) so users know which version they have and whether an update is available.
