  1. Every time. My players know about a half a dozen spells between them and they haven't cast a spell in over ten sessions. 😉
  2. Remember, Nyarlathotep is known by many names, and one of those is The God of a Thousand Forms. My personal opinion is that it would be influenced by Cthulhu Mythos score. A low-level cultist likely would see the Bloody Tongue as an entity in of itself. But a high-level cultist or major Mythos villain may very well know that Nyarlathotep is an Outer God. And that Outer God avatars are influenced by the perspective of the snivelling meat bag viewing it.
  3. I kinda respect the audacity of you running Masks as your first go. But I also fear for YOUR Sanity.... 😜
  4. Nice product at a great price point. I did not expect this one to be full color.
  5. As mentioned before, I don't have the expertise to answer that question. I fully acknowledge that you are the one in the driver's seat. I fully acknowledge that there may very well be diminishing returns on proof-reading costs. I also don't buy into the idea that role-playing proof-reading by small companies should be expected to be fully on par with proof-reading in other industries. I'm gonna buy the books because, ultimately, content and ideas matters more to me.
  6. This is a great list. Can I have your permission to quote you and paste this, as is, to the "Are You A New Keeper?" sticky?
  7. And their profit is in the resell market. Cards and miniatures. That's how they afford to sell the rest at a discount. Pretty cynical. For the record, I haven't made a purchase from them in years. Chaosium's perks make it worth the extra cost. 😉
  8. Yeah, I was suspicious when they were suggesting that someone was selling at a 50% discount but clearly they were talking about Horrors on the Orient Express. I don't know if Miniature Market's retail store offers Bits and Mortar? I've never heard of anyone getting pdfs when they purchased something online through Miniature Market and I've been shopping there for over a decade. I've never bought a Call of Cthulhu book from them because I'd rather support Chaosium and know that I am getting the PDF with the product. Well, and because I get it immediately upon release. And because the Chaosium
  9. Chaosium is also a small publisher. I can't tell you how to feel, but by ordering from them direct, I also view it as small company support. I'm willing to bet that Miniature Market might actually have more employees than Chaosium in the US.
  10. So this is really more about you saving money than supporting small stores or publishers. I get it. The price of saving money is distribution time.
  11. Order from Chaosium. Cut out the middle man. Get it sooner. Links are open folks. Update: They've disappeared again, so they may have needed to fix something. I ordered my hard copy of BTMOM! After four years of collecting CoC supplements I finally have access to this campaign in hard copy.
  12. Hoping we don't crash the system when they go live. 😉
  13. It is so great to see authors from the Polish CoC community convert scenarios to English. THANK YOU! Purchased.
  14. My post was not directed at you simply because it came right after your post. I read the first post in the topic and commented my general thoughts on the topic.
  15. I'm wondering if this is a cultural symptom of how people approach role-playing. Many players I know (myself included) interpret augment-induced penalties as role-playing opportunities. We also know there is the segment of the hobby that has been trained to "make big number and win. If I don't win, I don't have fun." I play at tables with players like this all the time, from young to old, and if they aren't making big numbers, they are convinced they aren't having fun. I find it sad.
  16. My understanding is no additions. Layout from three column to two column? Or maybe the other way around. Can't remember. Some TYPOS corrected.
  17. The Kickstarter Journal d'Indochine is close to the printing stage and focuses on southeast Asia. A majority of it focuses on Vietnam. A search for Cambodia in both books reveals sporadic references and one scenario that seems to take place on the Vietnam/Cambodia border, but certainly not featuring Angkor Wat. It honestly would surprise me if someone hadn't leveraged Angkor Wat as one of the wonders of human civilization for a CoC scenario. Yet, I agree, I'm not finding anything. Decades-long veterans have any thoughts? This makes me want to research and write a scenario related to
  18. I also don't have my copies on me, but the Investigator's Handbook surely has some of these as well. The Sixtystone Press release "Investigator WeaponsVolume 1" has additional stats for machine guns and for flamethrowers.
  19. Not even close. Golden Dawn is where it's at, and that's why copies go for 250+ USD.
  20. Greg: "It has been properly moved and seconded to make products that don't suck, in perpetuity. Discussion? Seeing none, I'll call the question."
