If you are a regular viewer of the Yog-Sothoth.com (YSDC) chat/podcast-y-type show “Beyond The Vale” and you tuned into yesterday’s episode, you might have noticed a nifty and large broadsheet newspaper page being used as a backdrop to their video feed. (And if you *don’t* know about all the great Lovecraft community stuff that goes on via YSDC, you should really check it out).
That was a page from the physical newspaper at the heart of our Dateline: Lovecraft kit, a kind of prop-newspaper Arkham-based scenario-resource thingamy. Obviously the PDF version of this kit has been continuously available on DTRPG ever since we released it in 2018 … and the four tie-in scenarios that we’ve released to tie in with elements of the newspaper can all be downloaded for free from here on the blog. Heck, for one of those tie-in scenarios (Rachael B. Randolph’s soda-licious scenario “Bottoms Up!”) we even designed RedBubble merch! No, seriously.
But for anyone who has a yearning to obtain the physical newspaper prop and book set … we do have a small number of those physical items available. We haven’t been able to restock them at the HPLHS webstore (where they sold like hotcakes, I’m told) but we can sell individual copies direct from our own (very humble) webstore. Numbers are quite limited, though, and we’re not currently sure when we will make another print run — so if you’re interested, check out the store or otherwise drop us a line (feedback [at] cthulhureborn [dot] com always gets to us).
Hot on the heels of the recent detailed English-language review of the APOCTHULHU Core Rulebook on Rolling Boxcars, we are very happy to announce another review of that book — this time in German, on the gaming blog Ringbote. If “du kannst Deutsch sprechen”, you can read the whole review via this link!
