Quick correction: The Legacy of Arrius Lurco was never a Chaosium property. It was a campaign from Miskatonic River Press. Murf apologizes.

The first book for the new game, Sigil & Sign, will introduce the game setting, core rules, and themes.  The project is planned to be funded through a Kickstarter campaign in April.

Listener Feedback!-

We got a couple of messages via Speakpipe from Joseph Outram in NZ! He is expressing his frustrations regarding the Horrors of War: A Covenant With Death Kickstarter.
We reached out to Adam Scott Glancy for updates or response, but he hasn’t gotten back to us by the time of release.
Also a note that Joseph sent in two voicemails where he clarifies his thoughts. The one played in the show is an edit of them both together for clarity.
