As you rise from the sleep that is not death and is not life, you make yourself a stygian elixir of crushed roasted beans of far of Arabia, it’s charnel color swirling like a deadly whirlpool in your chalice, and then you head off into the stars… tumbling forth into strange new vistas amongst throngs of others, all unknowingly participating in the same dire ritual.. and when you go to consume your unholy elixir of unnatural endurance.. you find it’s gone cold.
This is truly an abysmal fate for any cultist. Luckily, our dear and depraved friends at The Storm Crow Shop have come up with a solution for every good cultist. Their cursed artificers have created a double (that’s two) walled steel travel mug. It should hold 12oz of whatever sort of ichor you need. They just restocked so hurry and get yours before they sell out once again!
As our kickstarter continues, we had an extra scenario come up that couldn’t make it’s way into the book. In normal form, we are opting to share this scenario with you dear readers! There is still time to back Terrors of the OctoberNomicon! Consider this scenario a free preview of what’s awaiting you in the finished book. That said, we bring you… Bread of heaven!
So the fine folks at Golden Goblin Press have been working on a secret project with us. We’re very proud of our yearly Octobernomicon, and they’re fans too. So we sat down and put all of our twisted little heads together and came up with a secret project I’m announcing now…
Prior to working in the RPG industry, I’ve worked in a variety of different fields. I’ve managed restaurants and internet companies, lead marketing teams, worked as an F&B cost controller, and managed warehouses and even disaster restoration companies. But…this industry…it’s where my heart has been at for a very long time. Sneaking out of the house as a teenager to go play Call of Cthulhu was the first time I ever felt like I belonged. The other kids didn’t care what I looked like or where I came from. It was the first time in my life that I felt accepted.
And so, after a long hiatus in which I was a workaholic at one corporate job or another, I eased back into gaming-related stuff, starting with proofreading Stygian Fox’s The Things We Leave Behind in 2016. The initial work was therapeutic…it was what I’d turn to to de-stress from managing three restaurants. It’s why my name is in every Stygian Fox book in some capacity or another.
It wasn’t until 2020 though, when I found myself unemployed for the first time in 26 years, that I realized how messed up all work and no play had made me…how much of life I’d been missing out on, mostly working at jobs that I did not love. Which is how I found myself typing up an email to Matt at shoggoth.net, applying for the RPG Editor position. Cause at this point in my life, I only want to work on things that I love…so hello shoggoth.net readers. Let’s do horrific things together!
Normally we try to stay as apolitical as possible, however this seemed pretty fun. DavidXNewton, a Youtube video game commenter and all around swell guy has a series on his channel called “David Does Doom”. With the goings on in the news recently, he’s started to ask for donations on his channel. Said donations will be amassed and handed off to RAICES to aid in the border immigration problem, AND will be matched by his employer. So as he’s going to be playing Sandy Peterson’s (creator of Call of Cthulhu) own Doom and has promised us some Cthulhu levels as well; I give you (direct link with donation link and handy chart of how much has been given already:
