Origins Game Fair 2016

Despite a misprint in their onsite book; Shoggoth.net Group will most decidedly NOT be at Origins Game Fair, nor are we associated with their Cthulhuthon.  Although this was communicated to Origins staff some time ago, it appears that they have made an over site.  We wish Rogue Cthulhu good luck with their further endeavors.

Las Vegas Brings You the “Weekend In Arkham” Lovecraftian Gaming Con!

A Weekend in Arkham 2015

By John Coviello

It happens once a year, as the warm golden glow of autumn light fades, the pale moon grows heavy and large, and the air takes on a discomforting chill. The veil between worlds grows thin. Heathens and Cultists are rumored to visit ancient ruins to worship the Great Azathoth during this darkling season, ghouls are said to hunt for prey in misty graveyards, and the wicked descendants of the Salem witches are known to soar alongside cawing murders of crows as the cruel neon beams of the Northern Lights flicker across the vault of the sky.

A Weekend in Arkham is coming.

Our annual two-day festival of H.P. Lovecraft and tabletop gaming will take place at the brick-n-mortar Little Shop of Magic store in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 17-18! We invite you to join us in delving into the mysteries of the Ancient Ones, and confronting profound, unspeakable, Lovecraftian horrors.

This year’s celebration features plentiful opportunities to play your favorite games based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft: Elder Sign, The Doom That Came to Atlantic City, Night of the Grand Octopus, Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror, and many more. Seating is limited in most of these events, so we recommend that you pre-register early in order to reserve your spot.

Savor playing your old favorites, learn a new Lovecraft-themed game, or even contribute to the effort by submitting your own event. You can learn more about the weekend’s events by accessing the schedule here.

We look forward to seeing you in our shop for a weekend of bone-chilling, thoroughly enjoyable horror!

The Stars were right, because I’m in Providence!

It is a beautiful town, and I shall be EHRMAGERD posting her and on Facebook like a man on fire trying desperately to get a friend request accepted from a bucket of water.

I will for now publish just a teaser since nothing has actually started yet, but PICS!

PulpFest 2015

While Shoggoth.net won’t be in attendance (yet), PulpFest writes:

Join us Thursday, August 13th – Sunday, August 16th at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Columbus, Ohio for PulpFest 2015. The theme this year is the Cthulhu Mythos and Weird tales. Normally this is more a literary con but this will be the first year for gaming, too.

We are starting off small since it is our first year for gaming but we will have the Clark room set aside for us. We will start gaming on the 14th. So far, I have lined up several groups to run a number of RPGs such as Call of Cthulhu and Pathfinder along with board gaming.

PulpFest is a convention for readers and collectors of the old adventure and SF magazines from the 1930s through the 1950s. These magazines are part of the foundation that gaming was created on. These stories started the stories of the Shadow, Doc Savage, Conan and featured the Cthulhu Mythos stories by H. P. Lovecraft along with a the works of writes like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.

There are a number of authors reading their works and panels on different literary themes. Also, the dealers room is great and has a large variety of books, magazines, films and artwork. It is a lot smaller than Gen Con and Origins but like many small local cons, it has an atmosphere all its own
