  1. Folks,

    On June 20th I will be running a scenario of my own devising - Black Thumb - live on Twitch.
    Only this has one or two very special guests.  The players are:

    Dr Paul Mitchener - the author of ENnie nominated Liminal

    Guy Milner - burnafterrunning.com owner and all-round nice guy (pun unintended)
    @pookie - you all know who he is

    Seth Skorkowsky - you also all know who he is

    wait for it...

    Shane Ivey - President of Arc Dream Publishing and co-author of Delta Green:  the roleplaying game

    It is going to be on JamesCORP's Twitch stream - starting 7.30pm UK time (not sure about the over-the-pond).

    So make sure to tune in to watch me either really impress everyone or fall flat on my face while I get pwned on the rules by the guy... who wrote the rules.

    You'll have to wait until Britannia & Beyond completes for an overview of that. I pledged extra in advance on that KS to bank funds for the main CI 7th guide. It's one of the few I don't have in my collection and the plan is to get it as an add-on. Maybe ask @Bud's RPG review if he has a copy and is interested in showing off an overview. Bud has a lot of plans on his plate right now, so it may not be feasible and I'm not intending to "volunteer him" for something that he doesn't want to do!

    I actually don't have a copy of GGP's Cthulhu Invictus, but I do have the original monograph and the 5th(?) edition version - neither of which I have ever read.  As @klecsersaid, I do have a lot on my plate at the moment, but it could be a nice one to do as it's fairly short and not one I had thought of doing.

  3. OK, so at BurritoCon in Fanboy3 in Manchester on Saturday, I had the pleasure of playing in Ian Cooper's new HeroQuest Glorantha scenario Wyrmghost Tower.

    This was my first time playing HQG, and to be honest, who better to run my first game for me than Professor Cooper?

    I found the mechanic startlingly easy once you get your head around it, and felt it was reminiscent in some ways to Gumshoe with the idea assumed proficiency.  The scenario itself was really well realised and offers more in the way of lore for Glorantha.

    Line of the day:

    Player:  So, these rabbbit people... are we talking Bugs Bunny here?

    Prof. Cooper:  No, more like Donny Darko to be honest.

    An old version was sold last year at GenCon. It was MUCH smaller than the current version, and a lot has been revised even in the material that was included.

    Maybe - just maybe - I can be persuaded to sell a few of the current two-volume manuscript at GenCon, but there's need to be significant interest.

    Gods and Goddesses will take a while because it has a LOT of art, and it gets updated as I realise additional information is needed to support scenarios, etc. And of course the art. You think RQG looked good? 


    Wowzer!  That is SPECTACULAR!

    The old adage of complementing through duplication. It sounds like Pookie suspects that the review pirates his previous work. Am I reading that wrong? 

    Yes, completely.  This was a collaborative thing - I narrated the actual text of his review from back in 2016.  I assume he used the word "pirate" due to it being a ship at sea.  He published the text of my review on his blog.  Why would he be promoting it if he thought I had stolen his words?

    With over 40 products in the CoC pipeline, including some major campaigns...

    40?!  Care to throw us some tasty morsels as to what we can look forward to?

    Personally, I am hoping for a slipcase sets of Beyond the Mountains of Madness, Spawn of Azathoth and Shadows of Yog-Sothoth - reworked and expanded for 7E with pulp rules.

    What happens if a group of "Lightbringers" reach the the Halls of the Dead, then ask for the restoration of a chaos god? The result could well be an impossible contradiction, a chaos god  (or goddess in this case) who wants to heal the world with chaos.
