  1. ”Mask of Desire” from “Does Love Forgive?” has ties to the Cult of Hastur. Here’s a few non-Chaosium RPGs that are related to the King in Yellow: “Carcosa” is a OSR hex crawl that brings you to the titular city and the its surrounding world near Aldebaran where black stars burn. Not much to do with the King in Yellow mythos, but it is an intriguing RPG based on OSR RPG “Lamentations of the Flame Princess”. It’s got a fair amount about the mythos between its covers The Pathfinder 1st edition Adventure Path “Strange Aeons” pits your party against the King in Yellow. “The
  2. Looking forward to reading this over the weekend. I love this piece of artwork. I think I mentioned this back when the art was first announced for this book, but it has a definite ring of German Expressionism to it, an art style popular around the time of Lovecraft's works for their dreamlike quality. More specifically, this artist perfectly captures the work of Wenzel Hablik and very much reminds me of my favorite painting of his, The Path of the Genius.
  3. Chaosium is finally planning to release the long lost 2nd edition of Pendragon. 😂😂 But in all seriousness, I can’t wait to find out what it is.
  4. I’m pretty sure you’re looking for Last Rites from 1999.
  5. Just got the email, Mansions got released today in print. Darn it, and just after I had put in an order for something else, too. I think I'll just wait a bit for Malleus Monstrorum and Does Love Forgive? to arrive in print to snag them all together.
  6. I know. I read it. I’m saying that when I first heard about the rumors about the HeroQuest board game revival two weeks ago when Avalon Hill put up the timer and Hasbro subsequently confirmed those selfsame rumors yesterday, I immediately was curious about Chaosium’s response. Again, it’s good to see the answer and if I want a copy of Chaosium’s game with the HeroQuest brand, I better get on it.
  7. I've been excited to see the return of the Milton Bradley HeroQuest but it's left me incredibly curious about what will happen to the name of Chaosium's HeroQuest. I've long been a fan of Call of Cthulhu but I'd really like to get into RuneQuest and HeroQuest. I think I'd like to have the version with the name Stafford wanted on the cover so I may have to pick up the HeroQuest books before any changes are made. Also, I think it'd be kind of silly and cool to have two completely different games with the same name on my shelf.
  8. I just thought to check the Cult of Chaos section. I found a thread for the scenario giving a general overview of the plot but no pdf. Well, at least now I know the general plot. EDIT: Another thread found directs me to contact Todd if I'd like a pdf. Found my answers.
  9. That’s why it’s a “25% chance”. Critical fumble, you held the gun backwards and shot yourself.
  10. I had played the Down Darker Trails earlier this year at GenCon Online and the group I played with, we had a really great time chasing down the mythos in the old west. In fact, we had such a great time running around (and on top of) the various train cars and roleplaying our characters that we unfortunately ran the clock and didn’t get to finish the scenario. We were planning along with our Keeper to possibly get together online to finish at one point, but sadly life got in the way and we never managed to find a time where we could all get together. This have left me extremely curious about th
  11. I really like the idea of one-on-one scenarios. It just makes it all feel all the more Lovecraftian and noir. Also, that image of the woman smoking the cigarette definitely reminds me of Desire from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.
  12. Thanks. Call of Cthulhu is a game I've been passionate about for a fairly long time. Horror on the Orient Express and 7th edition were two of the first Kickstarters I ever backed and this was the first TTRPG I ever owned.
  13. That's the plan. So far, I can tell you that the scenarios all take place between 1925 and 1931. I know that the Peru adventure takes place in 1921 and the rest of Masks picks up in January, 1925. The earliest, the first scenario, "Egg out of Time", takes place on August 4, 1925 which would mean that this wouldn't be ideal to playing these scenarios between Peru and the rest of Masks. The book does say that all of the scenarios can be moved, however, so I don't see why you couldn't set them earlier. The only exception is the "Pyramid Scheme" scenario set in 1931 which has to take place after B
  14. A Time for Sacrifice now released on DriveThruRPG! New Comet Games completed fulfillment of the PDFs to backers a few days ago and has released the book for public consumption. I’m currently reading through the first scenario, “Egg Out of Time”, which features the Great Race of Yith and a deadly flying polyp woven into Mayan mythology.
  15. HeroForge actually has a beta for making Tokens now I the works. Here’s one I made from the Nightgaunt.
