Sprawl Stories.front coverThe Sixth World is a place of danger and few places depict that danger better than Seattle. Where the sprawl expands, klic after klic, in all directions while trying to swallow the Emerald City. It ‘s the home to millions who struggle to survive the hazards of decaying neighborhoods and the scrupulous eyes of their neighbors.

Sprawl Stories contains four Shadorun novellas:

“Neat” by Russell Zimmerman
“DocWagon 19” by Jennifer Brozek
“Big Dreams” by R.L. King
“Blind Magic” by Dylan Birtolo
Each of these novellas takes  a look at life through the eyes of those that live there.  A burnt out mage is now searching for missing person – nothing can wrong there! Then a reporter goes on a ride-along with a high-octane DocWagon crew.  Hmm, something tells me to buckle up! Oh did I mention live on Trideo? Yeah, that’s a story for you. An ex-wageslaver gets caught between powerful forces while looking into his uncle’s death.  And a shaman must recover from an injury that threatens her way of life while extracting revenge on those who double-crossed her!
Yes the Sprawl is the wild side of Seattle. Are you prepared to walk in it?

London Now Available From Cubicle 7

 Cubicle 7  Comments Off on London Now Available From Cubicle 7
Jan 272015
 

Cubicle 7’s first Kickstarter project was to fund a deluxe boxed set for Call of Cthulhu, Cthulhu Britannica: London, providing both Keepers and investigators with everything they need to play games set in 1920s London. The campaign succeeded beyond their wildest dreams, funding to the tune of over £90,000/$130,000!

Today Cubicle 7 were pleased to announce that the PDF version of Cthulhu Britannica: London boxed set is now available to buy. They’re also opening the pre-order for the physical boxed set too, and pre-orders both on their webstore and at participating Bits & Mortar retailers come with a complementary PDF copy too. So, if you missed out with the Kickstarter, now’s your chance to pick up this superb new boxed set.

London in the 1920s is the greatest city in the world, a vibrant melting pot of history and culture at the heart of the British Empire. But underneath the powerhouse of the City lie millennia of history, from the well-documented paths of Roman Londinium to darker antediluvian secrets veiled from modern eyes. London sits atop its history: an ancient swampland that was itself once an even-more-ancient sea-bed. Who knows what secrets lie buried?

Cthulhu Britannica: London comprises three books: The Investigator’s Guide to London, The Keeper’s Guide to London and Adventures in Mythos London.

The Investigator’s Guide to London is a comprehensive guide to the capital in the 1920s. It contains, amongst other things, information on public transport, the bustling party scene, the people and a whole lot about the places investigators might go in the course of your adventures. Great for both players and Keepers alike, and packed full of maps and beautiful artwork.

Secondly is the Keeper’s Guide to London, which is strictly for the Keeper’s eyes only! This book is jammed full of ideas for running Call of Cthulhu adventures set in London, including new cults and Mythos threats, advice for capturing the unique feel of the city, a ready-made private club devoted to investigating the weird and wonderful, and a whole swathe of NPCs and plot hooks that you can use in your own games.

The final book is Adventures in Mythos London, which includes three complete, standalone adventures set in the capital city: Terror on the Thames, by Peter Wright, which has the investigators caught up in a night to remember on a boat trip down the river; Those Poor Souls Who Dwell in Light, by Call of Cthulhu 7th edition author Paul Fricker, which concerns the sins of Reverend Leigh, a vicar who has come into possession of a potent artefact; and The Non-Euclidean Gate, by Mark A. Latham, which is all about what happens when seven pages from one of John Dee’s notebooks turns up unexpectedly on the open market.

But that’s not all that will be included in the boxed set: There are also have six sheets of beautifully designed handouts for you to use in your games (in the physical edition these will be die-cut – you’ll have to print and cut them out for yourself in the PDF edition). Some of these are taken from the scenarios in Adventures in Mythos London, others completely new to inspire your own scenarios.

The physical boxed set also contains four poster maps, including a beautifully illustrated Macdonald Gill map of Central London – these are included at screen resolution in the PDF version.

The physical boxed sets are expected to ship in Spring 2015.

You can buy the PDF version here: http://www.rpgnow.com/product/142785/Cthulhu-Britannica-London-Boxed-Set?affiliate_id=169435

Tammany Hall

Tammany Hall

$ 60.00 SRP

Tammany Hall is a game of backstabbing, corruption, temporary alliances, and taking power at all costs. If you want to rule New York, you are going to need to play the city’s growing immigrant populations against one another. Help the immigrant groups who owe you political favors, call in those favors to slander your rivals, and win election.

In Tammany Hall, players help immigrants settle in New York, collect political favors from those immigrant groups, send ward bosses into Manhattan to secure votes, and slander political opponents. An election is held at the end of every fourth year, and the player who uses his power base best will be elected mayor. The Mayor’s grip on the city is tenuous at best. After every election, the Mayor must pay off his political rivals by placing them in offices that they can wield to try to take control of the city. Every player is your friend, every player is your enemy.

Tammany Hall was the political machine that dominated New York City politics by organizing the immigrant populations. While the organization’s influence spanned from its founding in the 1790s to its collapse in the 1960s, this game is set in lower Manhattan roughly between 1850 and 1870 – the era of Boss Tweed.
