Miskatonic University Podcast 020 – Bumps in the Night With A.S.G.

Play


– Explicit Language Warning-
Episode 20 has a special guest , Adam Scott Glancy, president of Pagan Publishing!
We forgo much of our usual format to cover a wide range of topics with Scott, from the new Delta Green material they’re working on at Pagan, to the new Bumps in the Night book for Call of Cthulhu, to the development of 7th Edition. He was kind enough to join us despite being ill, and we had a wonderful time talking with him.

The plugin that gives the download link seems to have stopped working, so here is a direct link to the file.

We got a voicemail from our friend Brian in MA, discussing the pulp and purist scale of game play we discussed in episode 19. It sounds like he has a great balance in his games. He mentions Keeper Jon’s Timeless Sands of India book from Goodman GamesAge of Cthulhu collection.

We then talk a little about Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, and Scott’s take on the proposed changes to the system.
Scott mentions the character creation system for the Fallout Series, which was apparently based on GURPS; another percentile skill system like BRP.

Scott brings up the story A Colder War, by Charles Stross.
North Korea’s interesting details, the Unicorn Tomb (or was it?), the Ryugyong Hotel, and the Pyongyang Traffic Girls.
Scott references the Harry Paget Flashman books, by George MacDonald Fraser
