MUP 097 - Lord Gloop!
Posted: Thu Apr 07, 2016 4:41 am
Episode 97 brings together Keepers Jon, Murf, Dan and special guest, Keeper Badger! We cover news and a Bestiary where we talk about the charismatic side of the squidgy goop monsters, the Shoggoth Lord!
This episode was recorded on March 28, 2016.
This episode is a long time coming. We originally had 97 in the can back in February, but that audio was completely hosed. Then we had scheduling issues to get back together for re-recording. We're still not completely free of the gremlins, as you'll hear in the audio half way though. New hardware is being appraised to fix this. Chad was actually on the original recording with Badger, but sadly he was unavailable for the re-do. But Murf was able to come in and make it a cast of four on this one.

Age of Cthulhu 9:
The Lost Expedition
Deep in the Gobi Desert, the investigators discover a strange artifact amidst primordial fossils. The alien device is a gateway to a conduit to travel throughout the cosmos, known as The Great White Space. The investigators are then propelled to an alien world ruled by the Elder Things, a strange alien race of macabre scientists. Desperate to find a way home, the investigators must survive a hostile and alien world filled with mutant dinosaurs and the Elder Thing's amorphous and putrid slave-beasts, the shoggoths!
