MUP Campus Crier Catchup - March 2016

Post by Keeper Dan » Sun Mar 27, 2016 11:41 pm

While we work out scheduling and technical concerns, Keeper Dan recorded a solo Campus Crier to hit some of the news that's come out lately.

I know that there are items that I didn't get into the show. Those will be discussed in episode 97, which looks like it will record tomorrow.

Campus Crier
Chaosium's first Organized Play Campaign for Call of Cthulhu kicks off in April!

A Time to Harvest is a campaign unfolding over six months, which will be offered free to all members of The Cult of Chaos, Chaosium's Game Master and Organized Play Program.

“It’s a tightly focused campaign, set in Lovecraft Country, which is inspired by and builds on H. P. Lovecraft's tales", said Mike Mason, line editor for Call of Cthulhu.

Written by established Call of Cthulhu authors Brian Sammons, Charles P Zaglanis, Glynn Owen Barrass and Mike Mason, A Time to Harvest is an an ideal campaign for novice Keepers and players alike, with plenty of advice throughout, but veteran players will also find it engaging and fun too.

"Things are not always what they seem and the players will have to navigate the various twists and turns. It’s also pretty fast paced, with plenty of action putting the investigators into dangerous situations. Whether around the learned halls of Miskatonic University, the streets of Arkham, or the wilds of Vermont, the players will have plenty of opportunities to explore, investigate, and face threats not of this world!”, said Mason.

Interested Keepers should sign up at The Cult of Chaos. Membership is free. Initial campaign materials will be sent out in March.

Thanks for the effort. Though a solo one. That would be a good show topic...Solo gaming or just Keeper and one player.

Soon Summer will be upon us....nothing better than Cthulhu and BBQ or down in some cool, dark, dank basement with friends.

I just lost a member of my gaming group to diabetes...he was 26. The group had fizzled out, but now because of this tragedy I will start it up again.
If religion were true, its followers would not try to bludgeon their young into an artificial conformity; but would merely insist on their unbending quest for truth, irrespective of artificial backgrounds or practical consequences.

Great short episode & maybe have on the crier catchup, while we are watching the Chaosium feed for ships going over water, toss out a few ideas for people to vote on (might be easier to get votes over the massive list of ideas to pick from for suggestions). Hope the rest of the technical adjustments go well & looking forward to hearing the next episode.

Yes, thank you. Schedule hell and lost episodes have made a mess of 2016 so far. We so appreciate the solo effort to keep some momentum going.
