We have another of the Necronomicon 2017 panels to share with you in the form of a special episode.

This time it's the turn of the Pulp Versus Pure panel, where our own +Paul Fricker teams up with +Lynne Hardy to defend pure Call of Cthulhu from the insidious pulp menace of +chris lackey and +Dan Kramer. +mike mason moderates, while rubbing his hands and cackling (or so I assume -- I wasn't actually there).

Beginning the final segment of the Axthetable season 2.5, we have the first of a two-part cast as Ric & Rob are joined by +Joanna Piancastelli to share our thoughts on the best rpgs for beginniners. We also polled various UK rpg luminaries at Concrete Cow and so have a wide assortment of games suggested. Thanks to all who contributed and check out the Show Notes page for links to all the games.

We're back and we're exploring the farthest reaches of sensation to bring you our look at Hellraiser. Clive Barker's 1987 portrayal of sadomasochists from beyond the grave has proved an enduring favourite. We cut into the flesh of it to try to understand why.

There is a fairly sizeable news segment this time, but not as sizeable as it could have been. We only mention our trip to Necronomicon in passing, as it would have greatly extended an already lengthy episode. We shall record our thoughts on it separately and put them out as a special episode.

And there is singing. Such singing. The Cenobites may think that they can inflict indescribable pain-pleasures on human nerves, but they are amateurs compared to us.

My wife picked up these vaguely disturbing cthulhuish prints from Etsy. They are printed on old dictionary pages.

Hullo Friends,

I've started blogging on various subjects, one of which is our ongoing HoTOE campaign, may contain spoilers although probably nothing major.

I've come to the realisation I'm scared to end up with a TPK.
What I expect to be our penultimate session of “The Blood Red Fez” occurred over the weekend, although we were a player down. Our hapless investigators went up against another Fez Monster, as I’ve mentioned before I’m a new CoC keeper and I’ve just…

We're back with another special episode. While at Necronomicon 2017, we got together with our good friends from the Miskatonic University Podcast to discuss how to make your game more Lovecraftian. The panel was chaired by +mike mason and featured a puppet show, which translates oddly well to this audio-only medium.

We also recorded three other seminars while at the convention, all of which we shall release over the coming weeks. Watch your feed for updates!
