Campus Crier

The Campus Crier is where we keep all the mythos related news and info for the podcast, this episode was recorded on May 5, 2022. 

Free League’s Blade Runner RPG has launched and already broken $1m. And with that, it finally broke Dave’s wallet. I managed not to back this one! 

Jason Cordova’s rpg Brindlewood Bay kickstarter is doing a smashing job with its small-town murder mystery setting. If you are a fan of small town mysteries such as Murder She Wrote, then this is your jam. 

Chaosium released a shipping update on some highly anticipated releases to include

— Cults of Cthulhu*

— A Time to Harvest*

— Call of Cthulhu Starter Set (40th Anniversary edition, with new box art)

— Plus, fulfilment of the long-awaited Call of Cthulhu Classic Kickstarter! (if you missed the Kickstarter, we’ll be selling the remaining copies via AFTER distribution to backers is completed).

We’re looking at May (and perhaps into early June).
