MUP 095 - Campus Crier-Palooza!

Post by Keeper Dan » Mon Feb 08, 2016 2:29 am

Episode 95 ends up being a huge chunk of Crier. There is a lot of news released since 94, as well as feedback and a really weird Card Catalog.
This episode was recorded on February 7, 2016.

Campus Crier
Modiphius releases Elder Godlike, a brand new crossover supplement to super power your Achtung! Cthulhu adventures!

Today we're really pleased to announce the release of Elder Godlike, a brand new supplement to add super powered role-playing to your Achtung! Cthulhu campaigns.

ImageElder Godlike is where the superhuman suspense of Godlike meets the cosmic terrors of Achtung! Cthulhu, introducing a whole new dimension of fantastic adventures to the Secret War, in the ultimate crossover RPG experience.

Written by original Godlike creators Dennis Detwiller and Greg Stolze, and based on their acclaimed Godlike: Superhero Roleplaying in A World on Fire, Elder Godlike opens a new front in the Secret War as Talented Allied commandos use their amazing abilities to confront super powered Nazi Übermenschen and combat the secret, awful designs of the nefarious Black Sun.

Will your characters embrace the power of their new abilities and powers and can they resist the onslaught of the new super soldiers of the Nazi regime?

Elder Godlike features:
  • A complete new rule system for superpowers in Call of Cthulhu.
  • A history of Talents in the Secret War
  • A complete Elder Godlike adventure
  • Guidelines for Talents in mass combat
  • Six pre-generated characters ready to play
  • Fully compatible with the Call of Cthulhu, Sixth Edition and Savage Worlds roleplaying games.
Elder Godlike is a secret dossier's worth of useful alternate historical and fantastical information to help you expand your campaign out into the wider world of the Secret War

You are larger than life - but the Secret War is larger than you!

Elder Godlike is available in print and PDF from and from all good retail stores!

We hope you enjoy this latest Achtung! Cthulhu supplement and keep an eye out for more great releases arriving soon!

We are now using a paid hosting plan for our audio files through LibSyn.

We got a super cool email from Jon's player Steve.
So here’s the question: Should I stop listening to something I enjoy (CoC podcasts) in the hopes of even more enjoyment in another context (real-life gaming)? Or does it even matter because scenarios and facts/monsters are always different every time through because keepers and players are different? How do I stop worrying and learn to love the Shoggoth?

Good episode. Here is a 1973 TV film that could also be used for a game...

Agreed about the issue the one emailed question was with the actual plays, I've gone through the haunting & it was quite fun to see the house being completely different or the character diversity going in odd ways. Though agreed, if you are listening to actual plays, slot those scenarios to ones you want to run & you can use some of the stuff from the actual play in your game if it enhances the story. Also in agreement with the hosts, if you are in a game with a new Keeper to the game & you know the general story + the keeper is sticking straight to the scenario, it's good to help guide the other players in the fun field of playing CoC/Trail of Cthulhu (tutorial 101 sessions available BTW). Another thing with listening to actual plays, like for me listening to Bryson Springs on Role Playing Public radio, it sold me on getting the scenario to run myself.

Agreed about Patricia making Nightmare fuel for a lot of that clunky site so here's an antidote...MARU

plus MST3k episode of goodness ... B&index=33

Not sure the youtube button in the forums works at least not on the new firefox...

Really enjoyed the episode lads.

I'm a backer of the Conan RPG, for anyone interested in the Kickstarter there are a couple of videos online. One in particular is some regulars from Robert E Howard days actually playing in REH's house!

Dan hit the nail on the head and its something I constantly bump heads with my gaming group - separating Investigator knowledge from player knowledge can sometimes be difficult however you just have to do it. An example of CoC players playing a scenario most have played before can be found here:
Steve Highfield in the Call of Cthulhu "No Man's Land" scenario. Fenton Beanland in the Call of Cthulhu "The Inheritor " scenario.

Forgot to add as I've been catching up on podcasts, for Elder Godlike RPPR did a wonderful AP of it on the site if anyone's curious to hear how it went. Think it was hinted at in an earlier Unspeakable Oath episode. In CoC, it sounds very pulpy (so should be fun with the upcoming CoC pulp book) but very fun as the superpowers that just put you one step closer to a mythos level of insanity.

Just to throw a boring librarian hat into the ring - you guys are still archiving episodes at, right? Because they'll still be on there no matter what happens at Libsyn, which is always reassuring.
