I want to personally congratulate each of the Alumni of the Storytelling Collective’s Write Your First Adventure Workshop last month. The market has been flooded with over 50+ titles on the MR, Chaosium’s Community Creator Content hub. Ya’ll, I’m so proud of each and every one of you. These scenarios look amazing, the cover arts are BOSS, the Miskatonic Repository Creator’s Circle is buzzing, you’re being featured in Chaosium newsletters, and you’re making your first sales. I’m just– I’m just so proud of you guys. Congrats! Head over to the Miskatonic Repository and make someone’s day by checking out their newest creations!
Annnd speaking of the Miskatonic Repository, Miskatonic Repository Con GM Signups just opened up! This virtual con will be hosted October 15th – October 17th. We have 3 awesome panels and over 16 events already submitted! So, come play some 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu with us! A link to the TTE will be in the show notes… and you can email MisktatonicRepositoryCon@gmail.com to get in touch!
Innsmouth The Missing Child: A Gamebook is a choose your own adventure styled solo game book where you are an investigator brought in to find the whereabouts of a missing child amongst the odd and terrible inhabitants of Innsmouth. It has funded with $23k of a $1300 goal and still has 23 days left at the time of recording. The art looks sparse, but that’s what I would expect from a product of this type. You can get a PDF for as little as $9 and a physical starting at $17. Overall it looks pretty neat, and I’m trying to not back it.
Free League has another Kickstarter out for two new products in their Forbidden Lands line, this time a bestiary of sorts called Forbidden Lands: Book of Beasts and a campaign called The Blood March. As we have come to expect from Free League, the art on display is absolutely gorgeous. And this seems to be a no brainer for any fan of the weird fantasy setting. You can get a pdf of both books for $35 or either individual book in print for $35. If you want both in print it will cost you $69. The project has already funded with $285k of a $12k goal, and will have another three days left at the time of this release.
Good friend of the show and proprietor of The Old Ways Podcast, Mike Diamond, has officially announced a third campaign for their excellent live play series, but this time with a twist! They are currently accepting GM pitches for a new campaign run by a new Storyteller. So if you have a campaign in mind and have it well thought out put in your submission at the link in the show notes. You can also find Mike on our own Discord, where he is a mod, or over at The Old Ones Discord, or you can just email him at email@example.com
And finally, it is with great sadness that we have to say a final goodbye to RPG Legend Steve Perrin, who passed away earlier this month. Goodbye Steve, safe travels.

Delta Green: Black Sites collects Delta Green operations that were previously published only in PDF or in standalone paperback modules. They lock bystanders and Agents alike in unlit rooms with the cosmic terrors of the unnatural. Unwanted survivors rise from death or slumber into the nightmarish life of humanity. The Black Sites hardcover is available for preorder, and will ship in February.
Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman are officially returning to the Dragonlance franchise. Weis recently announced that she and her writing partner, Hickman, will be writing a new trilogy set to follow their classic fantasy novels with Del Rey Books, with the first installment to tentatively hit stores late 2021.
Murph saw on Reddit that painter Francois Baranger, who’s been illustrating the Lovecraft books being published by Free League Press, is currently finishing a secret project related to “The Call of Cthulhu,” (by which we assume the story, not the roleplaying game), and then he’ll be working on The Dunwich Horror which should be released in 2022.
DEATH IN SPACE is an upcoming science-fiction tabletop roleplaying game, where players take the roles of explorers and laborers looking for their next big score. Inspired by the gritty science fiction of films like Prospect and Outland, Death in Space takes you to a Universe where technology is rusty and broken and society is harsh and desperate. And although there is something lurking out there, man is still the greatest enemy. In terms of rules, the main influences are the rules-light games of the indie and OSR scene.
Chaosium welcomed two new employees, Simeon Cogswell and Matt Ryan. Simeon will be their in-house layout artist and graphic designer, and Matt will be their in-house cartographer. Congratulations to them both!
Blue Fox Comics, a UK based comic book publisher, recently published The Mountains of Madness, a graphic novel that is a sequel to Lovecraft’s story, At the Mountains of Madness.
