Morning!

There will be nine chapters (an introduction, plus eight location-specific ones), plus seven appendices (glossary, NPCs, handouts, pre-gens, etc.)

It's a biggy!

Woot!

Sounds great.

1920s correct? Or 1930ish?

Oh...and will it be purist, pulp or either?

Ahhhh.. another one of my "doh!" moments 😯

Any update on this new campaign? The most recent post indicated "a mid-2020 release."

Hi, yes. It's in final editorial before heading into layout. 

We should be releasing the campaign in a few months time.

How much setting material and how much adventure?  Can we assume similar proportions to Masks of Nyarlathotep, or more, or less?

 

This is the first I've heard of this, and I'm really looking forward to it.

I am having a hard time to get my group to commit to year long campaigns. How many sessions (say 4 or 5 hours) would you expect this campaign to take. I can probably talk them into a game a week for 3 or 4 months might be challenging beyond that.

I'd say about 60 (adventure)/40 (setting), with more adventure if you add in all the optional encounters.

One playtest group managed it in 8 sessions (one per chapter), but their Keeper is ruthlessly organised and very efficient. I would expect most groups to take 2 sessions per chapter on average (if not more if you follow up on all the optional encounters). Chapter 1 is a pretty short introduction, but that's balanced by longer later chapters.

Depending on what the investigators do, you could - technically - finish it in 6 sessions, but I'd expect that to be the exception rather than the norm.

1920s, yes ;)

And it's written as Classic, but does have Pulp stat blocks for major NPCs if you prefer more two-fisted action.

Thankyou.  This is definitely on my must-have list.

I know that all good things take time, and that something is ready when it's ready, but are there any updates on this wonderfully looking campaign?

Hi, we are nearing completion and it will be out very very soon. Worth the wait!
