MUP 100 - The Paragon of Pulp Percentiles!

Image
Episode 100 has finally arrived! :cthulhudance: In this episode we have Call of Cthulhu Line Lead for Chaosium, Mike Mason. We talk about all the great new stuff that has been coming out, from 7th Edition reaching doorsteps around the world, to Pulp Cthulhu blowing up the digital venues.
This episode was recorded on May 22, 2016.

Campus Crier
The Campus Crier is brought to you by our new sponsor: Golden Goblin Press!

7th Edition backers have gotten access to the Pulp Cthulhu PDF! We cover both of these huge release with Mike in the main topic.

There are about two weeks left at the time of recording for the Kickstarter for Age of Cthulhu 9: The Lost Expedition. Two stretch goals have been cleared: Backers will receive a special PDF booklet with guidelines for running The Lost Expedition with the upcoming Pulp Cthulhu rules from Chaosium. Plus they'll receive a PDF with DCC stats for 10 Cthulhu mythos creatures.

The very first round of delivery for World War Cthulhu Cold War is complete backers have received a copy of the core setting book in PDF.

In other news, The Miskatonic University Podcast celebrates its 100th episode, just 4 years after the show launched in March, 2012. Congratulations, Pods!
And to mark the beginning of a new chapter in the show, we’re making a few minor changes to our program. For one thing, we’re going to try going to a weekly schedule. The plan is to make the shows shorter, around an hour long, but densely packed with news and topics.

Yes, and speaking of topics, we’re going to need your help. A weekly schedule means we’ll burn through a lot of ideas fast. Please help us out, MU-Nation - and suggest scads of topics for us to tackle. We’ve got some in the pipeline, but listener ideas always tend to be top shelf stuff.

Golden Goblin Spotlight-
Dread Shadows in Paradise, Digital Stretch Goal Release!
The day has come to receive your very first reward for this Kickstarter, the digital version of the fiction collection Dread Shadows in Paradise!
Available in PDF, ePub and Mobi

Cryptocurium Spotlight-
The contents of the June Parcel of Terror Creepshow box have been revealed.

Feedback

We play voicemails from the following community members-
Doctor Bob, EddyPo, Gladius, and “Gary in Vermont”

Thank you all for calling in your thoughts!

Hi Guys. Found this art blog which features a number of interesting drawings of Lovecraftian beasties. The image of an Elder Thing solving Rubik's cubes is well worth seeing.

Topic 1

7th Edition - what’s it like to see this thing in print? How has response been?

The Good Friends of Jackson Elias reveal the secret history of Call of Cthulhu 7th edition in episodes 78 and 79.

A Time to Harvest

How did you react to the geek and sundry articles about Chaosium and then announcing that Call of Cthulhu was the best RPG of all time?

Topic 2

Pulp Cthulhu - holy crap, it’s (kinda) finished!

Questions from listeners for Mike:

Sean wants to know if Mike fanzine “The Whisperer” might ever be available for public consumption. Is there anything in 7e that came out of those writings?
Badger wants to know about plans for re-releasing the old Lovecraft Country series, and what kind of changes or additions might be included?

Congratulations on reaching episode 100!

Looking forward to the next 100.

Pleasantly surprised to see what I suggested made it to the card catalog, the artists latest entry is Gugs, with Ghouls and Ghasts to follow....

Re: MUP 100 - The Paragon of Pulp Percentiles!

Congrats on the big One-Double-Aught-Zero!

That was a great talk with Mike, and I particularly enjoyed the Pulp Cthulhu segment. Thanks for the pointer to the "Another Night in Arkham" Easter egg! So cool!

(Also, speaking of such things, has anyone else caught the Easter egg in the background layout? It's the strange runes that appear on the margin of every page: highlight them with your "Select" tool and then paste the text into Word or Notepad or whatever. I won't spoil the surprise here, but I'll just say that those runes do spell out actual words!)

Today I converted my Achtung! Cthulhu game fully over to 7E and Pulp Cthulhu mechanics, and we had a total blast. Thanks again to Mike and the whole crew for getting Pulp out into the light of day after all these years!

Awesome! Great catch! It never would have occurred to me to try that. Very cool, Chaosium! Well done!

Yeah, it was a total freak accident--I just happened to have my cursor set to "Select" as I was reading the PDF, and noticed the runes were selectable...
