MU Podcast 061- Dark Times on the Road to Leng


MUP_061_Dark_Times_on_the_Road_to_LengIn this episode, it’s another visit to the bestiary to examine the inscrutable “almost-humans” of capricious highlands. And for the main topic, we get all medieval on your a**. Plus news, and more!

Campus Crier

R’lyeh Towers from Joe  Broers have shipped!

We are cancelling the official Alumni Dinner private room reservation at The Ram on Thursday from 4 to 7, but we’ll be gathering there informally anyway if you want to stop by. If you do plan to make it, please let us know on the forum thread so we have an idea of how many tables to reserve.

Also, check out the Campus Forum thread for progress on Ian MacLean’s Cthulhu picture!

From Sentinel Hill Press: a preview of Graveyards of Lovecraft Country, a forthcoming resource book by Bret Kramer. The layout on the preview is done by none other than the “fifth Beatle” of MUP, Scriven. Art by Galen Pejeau and Chris Huth. Check out the preview PDF here!

Check out Black Sugar: a Lovecraftian short film that packs a lot of cosmic spooky into 11 minutes.

Chad will be play testing an original setting and storytelling magic system for Savage Worlds at GenCon called “Pellikoi: Typhoon Islands.” The players are mortal mythic heroes in a primeval world full of animist spirits that evoke the folklore of the Pacific islands. It’s kind of like an RPG if Myazaki’s “Spirited Away” had a baby with Sid Meier’s “Civilization.” Stop by the First Exposure Playtest Hall Friday and Saturday morning from 8:00-10:00, and Saturday afternoon from 1-3.
