Miskatonic University Podcast 15- Sweet Dreams

Episode 15 has not one, but two reviews, a lecture, and then we get tucked in for some quality nap time with HPL. **Update** I changed the attached MP3 file to remove a length of blank air at the end of the previous release. If you have the prior one, just delete it and use this newer one. The length should be 1 hour, 47 minutes. We start things off with the Campus Crier. Our first piece of news is, of course, the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Play test, detailed here. The NDA agreement file will be pulled on September 17 2012, so get them submitted asap! Neil (Ebs on Yog forums) wrote to let us know about the new Call of Cthulhu character generation program he’s developing. He’s coming along in development, and an official version 1 should be available soon. It’s built for the Windows platform, but many Macs and Linux machines are capable of running Windows programs with an interpreter program. We’ll give it a review here once he’s gotten the program to an official version 1 he’s happy with. Bert from the Of Steam, Steel, and Murder podcast wrote to mention that they’ll be playing our promo in their show. They seem to be creating a fascinating custom world with an alternate history for their steampunk RPG. You can check out their Obsidian Portal page for more details. We then have a new lecture from Dr. Gerard at the Miskatonic University History Department — on the topic of ‘Galvanism‘. We play a promo for the 19 Nocturne Boulevard podcast. We’d love to play promos for other shows, so if you’re involved in a Mythos/weird fiction/RPG podcast, let us know and we’ll play your promo. Also, if you’re an artist or musician, let us know and we’d be happy to feature your work on the show and website. And if you have a podcast and would like to play our promo, you can find it on our feed or right here. We have two reviews on this episode. The first one is a submitted recording by Ben, for the new Bumps in the Night book by Pagan Publishing. The second is for Cthulhu and the River of Doubt. This is the book Through the Brazilian Wilderness by Theodore Roosevelt, with footnotes added by FNH of the Cthulhu Podcast. These notes supplement the tale with roleplay story hooks and character stats. It appears that it’s currently only available in print form. He also produced a similar book called Cthulhu and How I Found Livingstone. Print  DriveThru PDF See all of FNH’s list of games here. Jon mentions the book: The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey Here is a page with a lot of images from the expedition. Murph brings up the fantastic progress of Chaosium’s Horror on the Orient Express Kickstarter campaign. Main Topic: The Dreamlands For inspiration of the amazing landscapes and views of the Dreamlands, look to the world around us. We would also love to hear your ideas for topics for us to talk about. Send us a note directly, or go to the Campus forum with your ideas! Here is the discussion thread on the Campus forum, and this is the discussion thread for this podcast posted on the Yog-Sothoth forums.]]>
