Campus Crier Badger is now offering a Feed the Shoggoth turn counter via the game’s website! It was previously only available to Kickstarter backers, but he has made available to the public the extra copies left over from the KS. It’s $5 (plus $1 shipping), you can get one of these turn counters, minted by Campaign Coins. There are also rumors of a mini mini-shoggoth in the works by Jason McKittrick. Smaller than the one in the Kickstarter, will retail for about $10 plus shipping. Also, Badger has generously offered a special code for MU Podcast listeners – if you want to buy a copy of Feed the Shoggoth at a $5 discount, you can use the code shoggydec16 to buy the game for $15 instead of $20.

Adam Scott Glancy GM’ing a live-stream Call of Cthulhu game along with Cody Goodfellow and Ken Hite via Legends of Tabletop!  – The Last Flight of the L58 NICTONOMICON Bestiario sobre Lovecraft / a Lovecraft bestiary Tales from The Loop Edwin cooked up tables to demonstrate the variable effect of penalty dice as used in CoC. Thank you Edwin! “Graphs based on Monte Carlo simulations with 50,000 rolls with each level of penalty.  It’s interesting that the max penalty is at a different skill level with one die (at 47%) than with two (at 62%). Your 15% is about right. The average penalty over all skill levels based on this simulation is 17%. Two dice provide a 25% average penalty. The analysis ignores fumbles.” penaltychance of success MUP News Just a reminder, we’re using for…feedback. Card Catalog A hat tip to David Jacobs, who posted this thing on Google Plus, learned about on the 99% Invisible podcast… The Roaring ‘Twenties – an interactive exploration of the historical soundscape of New York City Using Municipal Archives of the City of New York, cataloging over 600 unique complaints about noise around 1930 while reproducing over 350 pages of these materials. It also includes fifty-four excerpts of Fox Movietone newsreels, early sound experiments that at once captured and technologically remediated the sounds of New York City, as well as hundreds of other photographs and print materials. It’s at this point where we lost Keeper Jon, as he was feeling under the weather and just couldn’t stay up any longer. Topics – CTHULHU INVICTUS! 7th edition guide to Cthulhu Invictus.
