MUP Episode 168 – Dark Projects and Golden Ages with Oscar Rios

This episode, Chad, Jon and Murph talk with Oscar Rios of Golden Goblin Press about a Kickstarter project that’s about to launch (check this space in a few days after the episode launches). And we also talk about a couple of episodes of a weird/horror/drama podcast that Oscar suggested, called Archive 81, and ways to draw possible game inspiration from that well. This episode was recorded on February 28, 2019.

Murph is a player on an Actual Play with How We Roll of the Peru prequel chapter of Masks of Nyarlathotep on Chaosium’s Twitch channel! The latest Hudson & Brand Kickstarter Shadows of the Past has completed by the time this has been released, at the time of recording the had raised $34,739 of a $7,981 goal. Friend of the show, and previous guest, Becky Annison has just gone live with the KickStarter for Bite Me! – A Game of Werewolf Pack Dynamics. This Powered by the Apocalypse game is centered around building and fleshing out the emotional, and often violent, relationships within the werewolf pack. The Wrestlenomicon card game features lush illustrations by Kurt Komoda. The core game features one Cthulhu deck and one Hastur deck, but if our Kickstarter reaches our stretch goals, we’ll be able to add more Great Old One decks like – Itlagua the Wendigo, Tsathoggua, Nyarlathotep, Yog-Sothoth, Yig. You name it, they’ll fight it! Arc Dream Publishing has a new Kickstarter going live on March, 5th for their new humorous Mythos card game, Wrestlenomicon. The art in this looks really cool, and made me, Jon, laugh. This comes to Kickstarter on March 5th (already underway). Oscar chimes in to mention that there is new free material on the Golden Goblin website. Behold, a new Mythos tome, Rituals of the Eternal Mother. Type40 has announced on their Twitter stream that they are a go for shipping Reiner Knizia’s Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection Kickstarter. I believe that Jon has already received a shipping announcement and speculates that he will have it in hand within a fortnight. According to the @HPLHS Twitter feed, The Super Deluxe Limited Edition of Masks of Nyarlathotep is officially shipping! You can check out the photo of boxes in a storeroom here. Thank you to Sean for editing this episode!
