Geek and Sundry asks- The Best RPG of All Time Is… Call of Cthulhu? Lovecraft Tales is an upcoming adventure game set in Lovecraftian universe From Beyond The Beyond- YouTube short film by Chris Lackey and Greig Johnson Keeper Jon’s Age of Cthulhu 9: The Lost Expedition now live on Kickstarter! From Oscar Rios of Golden Goblin Press regarding Heroes of Red Hook-
The book is now 65% filled, with seven stories accepted. Budget and stretch goals are set. More are coming in all the time too. We hope to have at least 50K in accepted stories before the Kickstarter launches. Stretch goals include bookmarks, b/w interior illustrations, and 4 original novellas.  If all four novella stretch goals are unlocked they will be bundled into a whole new book, with an original cover by Ian MacLean. We expect to have the book written by the time the Kickstarter launches, and out before the holidays. So far we have… (in alphabetical order by author’s last name) Lords of Karma, by Glynn Owen Barrass Beyond the Black Arcade, by Ed Erlac Crossing the Line, by Tom Lynch A True Telling of the Terror that Came to Red Hook, by William Meikle A Gentleman of Darkness, by Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire The Guilt of Nikki Cotton, by Pete Rawlik Men and Women, by Oscar Rios Heroes-of-Red-Hook The cover art is attached, and it’s by Ian McClean.  We hope to have it mocked up as a rough cover soon, and to include an ad for it in the back of Dread Shadows in Paradise. I am hopefully that book (Dread Shadows…) will be released to backers of Tales of the Caribbean next week, and available for purchase to non-backers before the end of the month.
          A Time to Harvest month two has been released from Chaosium for the Cult of Chaos members! World War Cthulhu- Cold War has started releasing PDF versions to Kickstarter backers. Ep 100 did get recorded on May 22, so expect that next weekend! Discuss this episode on the Campus Forum]]>
