  4. Raiders of R'lyeh!

    I'm not sure this goes here or not... but I heard the game is based on Openquest rather than CoC... Anyway, Raiders of R'lyeh is finally out for purchase in PDF form. It's huge and looks great. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/209168/Raiders-of-Rlyeh-Gamemasters-Guide--Core-Rules?affiliate_id=10748 It's aimed at Edwardian era horror adventures. It swings in a more action-adventure mode than old CoC... and has rules more in line with Openquest. It's been a long time coming and I'm kind of excited to finally get the chance to read it.
  5. So I got the first installment of the Clockwork of Orange campaign last week and I've been reading it through. It does have a good chunk of historical and quasi-historical detail, but I'm finding that 17th century Germany isn't a setting/era that I quite 'get'... yet. I'm not at all sure what the 'tropes' are. Like, I can riff on the 'Wild West' and vaguely medieval England all day long... but the Holy Roman Empire isn't something I've got a visual or fictional mental reference library for. Names and places are things I have to look up to get anything close to authentic in atmosphere. Any suggestions for literature, movies, comics... or entertaining historical overviews of the setting?
  6. Hey Guys, So, I've decided to resurrect my childhood German, and I thought, what better way to do this than to find things I know deeply and think about more than perhaps is sensible, but to do those things in another language! yay. I know there's a body of RuneQuest material out there in German, and Call of Cthulhu as well. How many forum members are German speakers? Are there German forums? I'd appreciate a gatekeeper to point me in some useful directions. CP

  8. Check out A Clockwork of Orange: The Heydelberg Horror, now available from Drivethru in print and PDF formats. 1610. All of Europe teeters on the brink of war. Religious and political factions manoeuvre for advantage. In the scramble for power, lost knowledge is brought to light, and discoveries from the New World change our conceptions of reality. But there are some things man was not meant to know… The Heydelberg Horror is the first part of a new campaign for Clockwork & Cthulhu. A Clockwork of Orange will take the agents of the Karolinium in Prague across Europe to the dark secret at the heart of the Holy Roman Empire. Requires the Clockwork & Chivalry Core Rulebook, 2nd Edition. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/208684/The-Heydelberg-Horror?src=hottest_filtered
  9. Only one review online, would love to hear more impressions! Has anyone read it or played it yet?
  10. Golden Goblin Press is running a one-week Kickstarter for a new 7e Call of Cthulhu book, Cold Warning https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/golden-goblin-press/cold-warning-a-call-of-cthulhu-7th-edition-adventu/description
  11. 30 Sanity Points Blog

    Two years ago I challenged myself to create a blog where I used the headlines from the local newspaper to make up plots for the Paranoia RPG. Wanting to develop my horror writing, I decided to dust off the local papers and see what devious Mythos plots might be lurking behind the headlines. Also, for Keepers who are looking for creative tales to weave for their groups, I hope they find this blog useful for jumpstarting their imaginations, whether it causes them to come up with similar ideas or they simply flesh out the tales I’ve outlined. The blog's at www.30sanitypoints.blogspot.com May your sanity points fall slowly, Garrett Crowe
  12. I'm going to to play the Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign in a near future. In 1925, looking for information is a bit more complicated than looking it up on the internet. I would like to prepare a list of places in New York where the investigators may end up doing just that: looking for information. To be more precise, I'm not interested in locations specific to that campaign, but rather places in New York City in 1925, known to the general public, that may give access to potentially useful knowledge in any campaign setting. So far I have: The New York Central Library, 5th Av, 42nd St. Described in the campaign. The New York University. The Bellevue Hospital, 1st Av, 27th St. Described in campaign. The New York City Police Department, 240 Centre St. The NY Police is mentioned in the campaign. The Sugar Cane, a clandestine bar, 5th Avenue, 135th St. Not the only bar where information can be garnered of course, this one just happens to be somewhat detailed in the campaign. Newspapers: Daily Worker, Negro World, New York Times, World, New York Pillar Riposte. I like the idea of restricting clues to press articles of specific newspapers only. The Hall of Records, built in 1907 (later renamed to Surrogate's Courthouse in 1962). The New York Municipal Archives was only founded in 1950. Any additional idea or suggestion is welcome. For example, where would one find birth or marriage certificates in 1925? Information regarding real estate and land registration?

  14. Has anyone else noticed how easily a game of Nephilim can be crossed into C'thulhu? There are a few hang-ups, in that the esoteric history of the Nephilim doesn't quite fit in with the broader and geological time history of the Cthulhu Mythos, but it is easily possible to create work-arounds. In essence, the Nephilim are a species of immortal spirit parasite that have followed a very similar trajectory on an evolutionary scale to that of the Great Race of Yith. The difference being that the Nephilim are of terrestrial origin, while the Yithians are aliens. As for Nephilim magic, it makes for an interesting juxtaposition to that of the Mythos. The links between the Nephilim and Atlantis are well established, but the Mythos makes only casual reference to Atlantis, making the question of Atlantis, Mu, Lemuria, and Thule, open slather as to what a Keeper wants to do with them. Of course by involving Nephilim this also serves to make the "magic of Atlantis" largely unavailable to player character human investigators. For me, the most interesting thing to develop is the Dream Lands as a Subtle Realm. The Subtle Realms are where the magic of the Nephilim comes from, and clearly dreams and the dream lands are intensely magical, so perhaps the Nephilim created the Dream Lands as a sort of virtual reality and magical laboratory ? Has anyone considered that perhaps Innsmouth is merely a colony of Tritons at an advanced stage of Nephilim transformation? I would be interested in how other people have developed these ideas, as I KNOW this is not an original idea.
  15. Fonts of Horror

    As a keeper I have always enjoyed making my own handouts, and to that end I have gathered a few fonts together to stand in for various runes, glyphs and sigils of the various mythos creatures. One of my dearest wishes is that Chaosium would release official fonts for languages like Aklo, Tsath-Yo, Senzar, etc.
  16. Does anyone have a copy of the Android Creation Rules for Cthulhu Rising that they can email me? I went to http://www.cthulhurising.co.uk but the site doesn't seem to be up any longer. Thanks!
  17. Atlantis in Call of C'thulhu

    I am seeking the input of other Keepers, allow me to explain... In my C'thulhu Campaign it is now early October 1921 and one of my players' characters has purchased the islands of North Cat Cay, south of the Biminis, for the purposes of development and hired Frank Lloyd Wright to build him a resort down there. Frank was all too happy with the opportunity to work as (historically) he was down on his luck at the time (somewhat as a result of one of his staff becoming a berserk axe murderer... I KID YOU NOT!). The character has a cunning plan to do with supplying the Rum Runners of the Bahamas with cheap sloops produced in Boston, and a steady supply of cars to drive around Nassau which are sold at auction. Frank just mailed him to say that he has, unfortunately, "discovered" something while digging the foundations for the building that is supposed to house the utilities. The discovery is large blocks of stone much like the Bimini Road discovered historically in 1968. I am opting for the interpretation that the Bahamas are part of sunken Atlantis as per the Bermuda Triangle supplement. My current plan is that the building that has been discovered partially includes the sea wall of the island, and that North and South Cat Cay are both accumulated sand on top of these structures, but North Cat Cay also has the ruins of a Pharos style light-house that has collapsed, a la Ostia. I am interested in suggestions to spice things up and how other Keepers have interpreted Atlantis within the CoC setting. My preference is to keep the threat level low to mid range, and crucially to build a sense of wonder so players will WANT to investigate further afield in the region. The aim is to bait the hook and whet their appetites. I am the sort of Keeper who likes to give my players plenty of rope so they can hang themselves stylishly. So please, I would love to read any suggestions you care to make.

  20. Delta Green: Need to Know

    I have just uploaded ArcDream's new quick-start release Delta Green: Need to Know. They have made this available to all, not just the kickstart backers. Based on my quick run thru, this might become my new favorite core version of the BRP rules (or BRP-ish). Sorry @Jason Durall! SDLeary

  22. Two podcasts enter, one podcast leaves! The UK's finest podcast crews went head to head to have the world's most polite argument about whether there was too much Cthulhu in gaming. The Smart Party and The Good Friends of Jackson Elias dueled it out in front of a live audience, who weren't shy about getting involved and sought to answer this perennial question once and for all. Have a listen, see if you agree, tell us your thoughts! Imagine the worlds most polite rap battle with less dancing and more tentacles. Catch the recording from Dragonmeet here Listen out for golden nuggets from Chaosium's own Mike Mason and other luminaries!
  23. RPG Retro Reviews (Video Link)

    Hey everyone. Just wanted to pop in and say hi, and ask that you check out my YouTube channel's lastest RPG review, as its an in depth look at the history, and games system of Call of Cthulhu! After the announcement last week on the latest edition going to print, it seemed appropriate to focus on one of the greatest RPGs of all time! Please, give me your thoughts! Thanks for looking! RPG Retro Review: Call of Cthulhu
  24. Hello to any and all, I'm hoping maybe some people can help me with this, please.As the title suggests, I would simply like to know what creatures and beings worship/associate/belong to which gods.I am by no means an expert, but a dear fan of Lovecraft's work and the mythos. I don't exactly have the time to read through every story, but the only correlations I can think of at the moment are Cthulhu and his Star Spawn. Anything close to relation would help as well, like Dagon/Mother Hydra/Deep Ones to Cthulhu. I believe Deep Ones might worship Cthulhu but I could be wrong.Any help is greatly appreciated!
