2022 Plans and pardon our dust!

With the start of the new year, we’re going to try to do our damnedest to get more content out for you! As such, we’re starting Monstrous Mondays and Fiction Fridays. Admittedly Monstrous Mondays has gotten off to a rough start with the creature dropping on Tuesday and not getting art until Wednesday, but I believe The Hallowed makes a great first impression for the rest of the year!

Shoggoth.net’s New RPG Editor

Hello gamers!

I’m Chitin Proctor, the new RPG Editor for shoggoth.net. While new to the SDN team, I’m the Director of Operations and Chief Editor at Stygian Fox Publishing, and have done freelance work (proofreading) for Chaosium and Sentinel Hill Press.

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!

Hacked!

Some of you visiting the site, may have noticed a big red screen on your browsers announcing this site as a no-good-nic.  Well it would be correct.  Shoggoth.net runs wordpress and had several wordpress plugins installed, as you would do with a wordpress site.  Wordpress, unfortunately, is not that secure.. and with various plugins that even makes it more so.  As such attackers were able to get in and add their own bits of code to the site to do naughty things.  Upon discovering the hack, we immediately sprung into action. All the offending code has been deleted, a fresh untouched out of the box install of wordpress has been put up, with *no* plugins installed. I also went the extra step of turning the entire site read-only.  You are still able to submit stories, etc.. but no files can be written to the hard drive, this makes it so even if the hackers come back and try to use the same trick they used before to hack us.. they physically are unable to write the to the disk.   I have submitted the site to Google to be scanned and have the warning removed, but that is what is going on right now.
