Re: Episode 72 - What's new in Call of Cthulhu 7th edition?

I thought I'd heard from somewhere (an early Yog Radio podcast, an interview with Sandy Petersen on a blog?) that the monster's status of Independent Minor Race, Servitor, Great Old One, etc was intended to make the spells for Summoning and Binding generic to a class of being. If that's the case, I'...

Re: Episode 25 - Writing Scenarios with the Good Friends

That's my take on it. I wonder what you had in mind? I think a specific example here might help. Sorry for taking so long to respond to this; I've been moving house. My scenario involves Allied agents in WW2 heading into the Dreamlands to rescue (or recover, or destroy if they need to) a specific I...

Re: MUP 094 - That's what They want you to think!

The riffing on potential horror-worthy fluoride in public water supplies was terrific! (In the original definition of the word: of, or evoking, terror.)

Brilliant ideas - thanks very much for sharing them.

Re: Episode 64 - Lamentations of the Flame Princess, continu

Interesting to hear Mr. Raggi speak to the origin of his game's title - I'd long wondered where that melancholic phrase had come from! His willingness to allow authors their shot at unique layout and design is refreshing. Not everyone has a Masters of Fine Arts from Yale like Zak S, but there should...

Re: Just wanted to say thanks ..

You'll need to keep up the training to stay ahead of the fleeing pack when the Great Old Ones make their next appearance... I've started walking to re-acquire the fitness I sacrificed to work and other objectives - running has certainly earned my respect! Cheers and congratulations on your accomplis...

Re: Episode 63 - Lamentations of the Flame Princess

I enjoyed the episode and your insights! Lamentations of the Flame Princess is one of the few games that match Call of Cthulhu in several regards: - Other humans are the most dangerous combatants you can face and expect to survive . (The caveat being, in LotFP, that equation skews swiftly should you...

Re: Lamentations of the Flame Princess

Yes, it's all go! I've been developing it for the past few months, playtesting the work in progress with a couple of groups. It's all coming together nicely, although it will be a few months before I have anything like a first draft put together. EXCITEMENT UNINTELLIGIBLE NOISES ECSTATIC SPASMS!!

Re: Equipment for podcasting

Shifters?!? I'm very sorry - the autocorrect demon in my electronic familiar will soon be disciplined. I'm interested in understanding what equipment and software / applications are used for editing. For that matter, should any of the other podcasters on the forum wish to share their arcane art with...

Re: Lamentations of the Flame Princess

Mr Raggi has just announced that if he raises enough money through his current sale, he's going to use it to hire me to write an LotFP supplement tentatively titled "William Shakespeare's The King in Yellow ". This is all rather exciting! Oh my! This sounds lovely. Thanks for the sneak peek, Mr Dor...
