Ein paar News…

…aus dem aktuellen Cthulhu-Newsletter. Nachdem der letzte ja die „Bombe“ platzen ließ (wir erinnern uns an den Redaktionsleiterwechsel verbunden mit dem baldigen Ende der Cthuloiden Welten, der ich bereits jetzt nachtrauere…), geht es diesmal etwas ruhiger zu:

Kingsport – Alpträume im Nebel (Quellen- und Abenteuerband)
Deutschland – Blutige Kriege & Goldene Jahre 2. Edition (als Buch, mit neuen Abenteuern)
Cthuloide Welten #21
Spielleiter-Handbuch 3. Edition limitierte Ausgabe (incl. neue Abenteuer; die nicht limitierte Version erscheint 2012)
Kreuzzüge – Ritter im Heiligen Land (Cthulhu Mittelalter)

Auflistung in der voraussichtlichen Reihenfolge der Veröffentlichung.

Und hier die nicht-deutschsprachigen Veröffentlichungen:

Cthulhu Britannica: Shadows Over Scotland
Mysterious, wild and beautiful, Scotland in the 1920s is home to horrors modern and ancient, man-made and star-born. From the rolling pastoral Lowlands to the snow-capped peaks of the Highlands and the seaweed-choked Western Isles, creatures and cultures have taken root in Scotland whose maddening, corrupting influence can be felt far and wide. Fiendish things haunt the hive-like alleys and wynds of old Edinburgh, while Glasgow’s streets whisper with rumours of dark terrors in the shipyard shadows on the snaking, poisonous Clyde. And in the isles, murmurs on fishing boats and ferries speak of far older things, of sites of power and standing stones, awakenings and stirrings in forgotten places. Something terrifying lurks in the night, casting dark shadows over Scotland.
Shadows over Scotland is a massive new hardback sourcebook for Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game covering Scotland in the 1920s.
It features:•Three comprehensive sections detailing the Lowlands, Highlands and Islands.
•Individual sections on history, folklore, language and life in 1920s Scotland.
•A complete mythos timeline.
•Detailed coverage of nine cities and their various inhabitants.
•Seven sinister adventures complete with extensive handouts.
Format: 288 page hardcover, black & white interior art

The Repairer of Reputations
The Repairer of Reputations is a Trail of Cthulhu scenario by Robin D Laws, based on the story of the same name by Robert W. Chambers. It is one of four short horror stories incorporating Chambers‘ mythology of The King In Yellow, a decadent play whose publication brings madness and supernatural presences into the world. His mythology was later subsumed into the Cthulhu canon when H. P. Lovecraft, and his circle and later followers, made reference to it in their tales of the mythos.
This scenario allows the players to recreate an alternate version of the story, in which their characters, who do not appear in the original, confront the nation-shaking conspiracy of its central villains. They either destroy it, or are destroyed themselves.
A seemingly utopian future takes on a distinctly nightmarish quality. The scenario plays with this by suggesting that the publication of The King in Yellow has warped history in a disturbing direction. The alien beings described in the play are as real as the antagonists believe them to be. They want their literal heir of Hastur, Hildred Castaigne, to ascend to the Imperial throne of their America—Hastur’s America.

Pelgrane Press presents four century-spanning adventures for Trail of Cthulhu by three Mythos masters. From war-damaged soldiers on the Western front, to chthonic forces in the remote Kergueln archipelago, from atomic tests on Bikini atoll to occult machinations in the Mojave Desert, Out Of Time will take your Investigators into the far reaches of madness and beyond.
Created by Call of Cthulhu veteran Adam Gauntlett; Jason Morningstar, award-winning creator of Fiasco and the Shab-al-Hiri Roach and Bill White, creator of Ganakagok, Out of Time features:
•Not So Quiet: Bullet-ridden, bruised and bloody, the Investigators, soldiers and nurses in the Great War, are brought from the frontline to Military Hospital Number Five. Once the haze of morphine clears, they sense a brooding malevolence and they will soon realise there are worse things in this life than a bullet wound.
•The Black Drop: Something slowly gathers strength beneath the frozen basalt of the Kerguelen archipelago – a monstrous thing once worshipped and then betrayed, a terrible god from the antediluvian past. Its time has come again, and mysterious forces gather. Will the Investigators usher in its rebirth – or put an end to it forever?
•The Big Hoodoo: Play sci-fi great Robert Heinlein, his ex-Navy engineer wife Virginia, renowned editor and mystery writer Tony Boucher, or a young Philip K. Dick as they confront the lunatic fringe in La-La Land, and find themselves caught in a charlatan’s web of chicanery, mendacity, and deceit-laced with a strong strand of Mythos menace.
•Castle Bravo: It’s March 1954. The Investigators are sailors and scientists deployed aboard the USS Bairoko to the South Pacific as part of Joint Task Force One to participate in a series of secret thermonuclear test shots in the Bikini atoll called Operation Castle. After the first detonation, the PCs will have more than just radiation to fear.
Out of Time also features extensive handouts, pregenerated characters and exclusive new essays from the authors.
