MUP 104 – Hero of Golden Goblin

MUP_104_Hero_of_Golden_Goblin-800For Episode 104, we have guest Oscar Rios!  We take this opportunity to discuss his new Kickstarter project, Heroes of Red Hook, and some things that are yet to be announced. This episode was recorded on June 27th, 2016. Campus Crier The Campus Crier is brought to you by our sponsor: Golden Goblin Press! Goblin_head Did Google Earth Accidentally Photograph The Kraken Or Even Cthulhu? Howard Lovecraft and The Frozen Kingdom coming to Blu-ray Lynne Hardy to write new Call of Cthulhu campaign ‘Children of Fear’ Miss your copy of The Derelict? Chaosium didn’t participate in Free RPG day to create a collectable or scarce scenario only available to a small subset of our fans (we did it to show our support for bricks & mortar game stores all over the world!). But we appreciate that some people went to a FLGS on the day, only to find all the copies of Sandy Petersen’s ‘The Derelict’ had been snapped up. And many of you simply aren’t in an area with a participating local game store. So, if you really want a copy of Sandy and Mike’s ‘The Derelict’, this is what we can do: Everyone here in the Cult of Chaos got a free PDF download of ‘The Derelict’ on July 1st. If you also want the physical version, it is now available via at cost price – $2.99 + postage. Weird Detective – This is a five issue limited series. It is published by Dark Horse Comics; it’s written by Fred Van Lente and illustrated by Guiu Vilanova. I have the first issue, and it is freaking amazing. It is very well steeped in the Cthulhu Mythos! I want to talk more about it, but I don’t want to spoil anything. Trust me when I say that it doesn’t just lightly brush up against the Cthulhu Mythos… no, this series fully embraces it in a most fantastic way. It is Call of Cthulhu the role-playing game meets Law & Order. Chthonian Highways –  This role-playing game is currently free to download from Drive-Thru RPG. I just downloaded this, and I’ve begun reading it. This is also freaking awesome! This game is Mad Max: The Road Warrior meets Call of Cthulhu! The players are all part of a road warrior gang with a small fleet of souped-up and armored-up cars as you brave the wastelands between pockets of civilizations in a post-apocalyptic world. The mechanics seem easy to learn and fun to play. I am already planning on starting a game of Chthonian Highways with some of my co-worker gamers. The company, Ironspine, is calling this an alpha playtest, so go download this free game… learn it… run it… and give ’em some feedback. I anticipate them getting a lot of positive responses. MUP News- As the weekly thing kinda blew up on the launch pad, I think that bi-weekly is the best way to continue on with 105 forward.   Topics  The Heroes of Red Hook Kickstarter. In the talk about the origins of the Heroes of Red Hook, Oscar mentions the GGP party at NecronomiCon 2015. This was also mentioned in episode 88. We mention the Tales of the Caribbean project from GGP. Oscar briefly goes over a couple of upcoming projects, the next Call of Cthulhu campaign, and the next fiction anthology.   Discuss on the Campus Forums.]]>
