    Just how big is Massachusetts, anyway?

    Oh I see. Better this way then for immersion purpose. You could do San Francisco to Panama City or Valparaiso (Chile) by ship in the 1920s. And from there go to Lima. It would be simpler. Or New York to Colon (Panama). Take the canal to Panana City and onto Lima..

    That's something I didn,t know (not a native English speaker) and that's good to know. Jameson's Brook it is than.

    Thanks To Toadmaster's map of 1920's Massachusetts, I've decided to put Jameson's Creek Northwest of Dunstable, near the New-Hampshire's border. Now to flesh that little sucker of mine.

    Actually, I wasn't even thinking of marble (or granite), I was thinking more either like for cement or just crushed stone. Lots of possibilities is always good. And your right, I can pretty much put it anywhere we want and most people wont be the wiser.

    Sweet thank you, that's pretty handy. It's an idea for a small forgotten community about midway between Dunwich and Arkham, between a small river and forested escarpment with a quarry where most of them work since the early 1800s. Old Megalith and cave system under the quarry are part of it too.

    Back in '01-'03, there was a Dunkies just off of Dong-A University's Hadan Campus in Busan (South Korea). Those were the good day. Not sure if it's still there though as I'm back in Canada. Now of I can be so bold as to piggyback on this topic with my own Massachusetts question. What kind of quarry could (potentially) be found between Dunwich & Arkham? And would/could it be close to the Miskatonic River or would it be further North, near New Hampshire?

    Call for Submission for the Arkham Gazette - 'Curios'

    Hmm I got something (a journal) that might work. I'll mull it over a bit. Any particular deadline?

    Other cultures in Pirates & Dragon

    Just curious to see if anyone had created new culture/Nations for P&D? If so, on whom did you based them and what did they ended up like. Right now, I'm considering adding the Suebian (base on mid to late era Holy Roman Empire) to my setting. They would not be a great naval power (they would have a small navy of say 20 to 40 ships), but for Deserters, Disgraced Officer or Settlers it could work well.

    A Couple quick questions about Pirates & DRagons

    Well, start your Cangames budget...it will happen (one running in each of Canada's Official Languages)...oh and bring friends too: The more the merrier! And I usually go for tables of up to 8 players, and if the request is there, I might do a third running in English. I just need to take time this weekend and prepare my rough draft and the write like the Dickens over the next few months.

    A Couple quick questions about Pirates & DRagons

    Ouch, tough year indeed. Well at least I glad the operation went well and wish Ken a quick recovery (my family has been struck with cases of cancer, so I do understand fully). And quite understandable things got behind, but for those wonderful product, I can wait no problem...it just gives me more time to think about and write down my adventure seed. Worse case I can always do my own French character sheet, I'm actually pretty good at it (however if you were to have a character sheet in Word format that would be easier for me to translate than a PDF). Sounds like fun, and if only I were closer, I'd be tempted (unfortunately, I'm in Canada and my computer is about 15 years old...so most video/VTT options are not always reliable). Regards, André
  13. Quick little FYI before starting, while looking around yesterday I'ver noticed that the Cakebread & Walton main website was closed (Suspended Account to be more specific). Long story short, for next year (May 2019), I'm considering running a Pirates & Dragons game for Cangames 2019. I'm planning a Small group of Gaul Privateers exploring an island with the usual problems that goes with it. What I was curious to know is: 1) Any chance that "Island of Tortuga" would be out by then? Although not mandatory, It would help flesh out some element of the adventure. 2) A bit of a Hail Mary, but has the P&D Character Sheet been translated (un)officially into French? I'm planning ot do one running in English anfd one in French and that would help

    Question about cthulhu dark ages

    I would recommend the Dark Crusades Monograph. It basically covers the Holy Lands and the crusades, so you might be able to find what you need there. And I known Saracean are covered there.

    Antagonists for 7e

    As promised, I've done a quick translation of the 2 pages that convers NPCs in the French corebook for 6th editon Call of Cthulhu. Giving you the 3 motheds to create an NPC, a bit of a definition for each of the category. a Table for the Average NPC stats. as well as a breakdown of the French skills category (as the Englich character sheet doesn't use that system). Below is the result, a nice little, easy to use (I hope), 4 pages Word document. NPC.docx
