Campus Crier

The Campus Crier is brought to you by our new sponsor: Golden Goblin Press! Goblin_head 7th Edition backers have gotten access to the Pulp Cthulhu PDF! We cover both of these huge release with Mike in the main topic. There are about two weeks left at the time of recording for the Kickstarter for Age of Cthulhu 9: The Lost Expedition. Two stretch goals have been cleared: Backers will receive a special PDF booklet with guidelines for running The Lost Expedition with the upcoming Pulp Cthulhu rules from Chaosium. Plus they’ll receive a PDF with DCC stats for 10 Cthulhu mythos creatures. The very first round of delivery for World War Cthulhu Cold War is complete backers have received a copy of the core setting book in PDF.   In other news, The Miskatonic University Podcast celebrates its 100th episode, just 4 years after the show launched in March, 2012. Congratulations, Pods! And to mark the beginning of a new chapter in the show, we’re making a few minor changes to our program. For one thing, we’re going to try going to a weekly schedule. The plan is to make the shows shorter, around an hour long, but densely packed with news and topics. Yes, and speaking of topics, we’re going to need your help. A weekly schedule means we’ll burn through a lot of ideas fast. Please help us out, MU-Nation – and suggest scads of topics for us to tackle. We’ve got some in the pipeline, but listener ideas always tend to be top shelf stuff. Golden Goblin Spotlight- Dread Shadows in Paradise, Digital Stretch Goal Release!
