  1. It'll be a few days before I can get it, but I will be getting it.
  2. You could always interpret it as "Two elder signs? You're gonna need them now."
  3. I'd certainly be wary of using my laptop if the Colour out of Space started showing up in the font colour palette.
  4. This is a great idea. Make it contemporary to when Ramsey Campbell wrote most of his mythos fiction.
  5. How does Arkham now compare to other modern products? I wouldn't expect Lovecraft's core setting vs a modern extrapolation of it to be very telling when it came to Twenties vs modern in general.
  6. Nobody said anything about wanting an 8th Edition. Keeper's Companion Volume 1. It included artefacts too. And yes, a book devoted to such things would be great. Expanded summaries of contents, and covering some books that just have table entries in the core. The Keeper's Companion also featured places, on Earth and off, which would be a great subject to revisit.
  7. I agree. I'm not really all that fussed about a special edition for the 40th Anniversary. The 50th would be great, especially since Chaosium will probably be thinking about an 8th edition by then. But for now we've got excellent new and updated content coming out, and I'd rather have that.
  8. What's the difference between this version and the earlier 7th Ed one?
  9. Pulp Cthulhu itself has rules for psychic powers and pulp science invention. It's not the same as a witch or vampire, but you could make an Investigator in the theme of the Shadow or Doc Savage.
  10. I'm making my way though this book now, inamidst other calls on my time. I've just finished chapter six, and I wanted to call out one thing in particular that I appreciate: My other observation is that I tend towards "Cthulhu Mythos is the only Mythos" in CoC - human mythology will be a human invention with only a peripheral relationship with anything true. So if I ran this as CoC, I would be taking the options to put a Mythos truth behind Shambhala and Agartha (possibly Zhar-Lloigor) - and also for other mythological beings that appear like pishacas or dakinis. But the other option
  11. There's an Arkham country scenario where a baby deep one has been captured and is being exhibited in a freak show. Some adult deep ones are trying to recover it, but are hampered by not wanting to expose themselves, or attract the attention that slaughtering the entire carnival would bring (I think the scenario is called the Carnival, but I'm not sure). They're willing to work with Investigators if it gets them the baby back without too much fuss. The scenario is written with the assumption getting the baby away from the carival and giving it to the deep ones is the morally correct choice.
