MUP Ep.212 – A Wee Bit o’ Troika!
In this episode, Keeper Murph runs Keepers Dave and Jon through a quick game of Troika! Noble Knight Games! We want to thank Noble Knight Games for returning to sponsor our show. Noble Knight Games has just completed a major revamp of their website! The new site was designed after collecting lots of customer feedback, and the result is a site that’s cleaner, prettier, easier to navigate with improved search functionality. Be sure to check out the Publisher’s Spotlight section, too. Check it out at www.nobleknight.com. Also, it’s that time of the year again… the holiday season is upon us. Running from November 11th to December 3rd is Noble Knight Games’ annual holiday sale, with their lowest prices throughout the year. So remember, the holiday sale prices supersede the discount code normally available to Miskatonic University Podcast listeners, so go now and get those books that you’ve been waiting for. Campus Crier The Campus Crier is where we keep all the mythos related news and info for the podcast, this episode was recorded on November 5th, 2020. Chaosium has appointed ambassadors to both their Miskatonic Repository and Jonstown Compendium fan content communities. Allan Carey is the ambassador for the Miskatonic Repository, and Nick Brooke is the ambassador for the Jonstown Compendium. The ambassadors will be the first point-of-contact for fans looking to contribute new products to each of those platforms. There’s a new horror RPG on Kickstarter right now called Shiver. According to the Kickstarter, “SHIVER is a tabletop roleplaying game bringing tales of the mysterious, the peculiar and the strange to life.” The Kickstarter is already more than 200% funded. It uses unique symbols on the dice to merge storytelling and game mechanics, and fans can download a free quickstart PDF to try the game before committing to the Kickstarter. If you act quickly, you might still be able to back Alan Moore’s Providence Compendium on Kickstarter. It is a giant 480 page graphic novel that fully collects all twelve issues of Alan Moore’s Providence comic book series. Artist François Baranger’s next illustrated Lovecraft story is At the Mountains of Madness. It is being published by Free League Games, and is available now for preorder. François Baranger previously illustrated The Call of Cthulhu for Free League. At the Mountains of Madness will be produced in two volumes; volume one is currently available on preorder. Gale Force 9 has updated their website to include more information about their soon-to-be released Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps board game. A few review videos are starting to come out on YouTube, to include one by Shut Up & Sit Down. This new Aliens board game looks really cool. Keeper Jon can’t wait for his copy to arrive. The Dee Sanction is a new RPG on Kickstarter right now by Paul Baldowski, the writer of The Cthulhu Hack. I’m just going to quote their: “The Dee Sanction is a tabletop roleplaying game about serving Queen and country in the late Tudor period, in a time where kingdoms vie for power, the Church splinters under the pressure of reform, and creatures of folklore emerge from enforced hiding seeking revenge against those who imprisoned them. You’re a bad person — sentenced to hang for dabbling in magic — given a chance to redeem yourself and earn freedom in service to Queen Elizabeth’s newest line of defense.”

MUP Episode 201 – The Silent Clowder
Campus Crier The Campus Crier is where we keep all the mythos related news and info for the podcast, this episode was recorded on August 16, 2021. I want to personally congratulate each of the Alumni of the Storytelling Collective’s Write Your First Adventure Workshop last month. The market has been flooded with over 50+ titles on the MR, Chaosium’s Community Creator Content hub. Ya’ll, I’m so proud of each and every one of you. These scenarios look amazing, the cover arts are BOSS, the Miskatonic Repository Creator’s Circle is buzzing, you’re being featured in Chaosium newsletters, and you’re making your first sales. I’m just– I’m just so proud of you guys. Congrats! Head over to the Miskatonic Repository and make someone’s day by checking out their newest creations! Annnd speaking of the Miskatonic Repository, Miskatonic Repository Con GM Signups just opened up! This virtual con will be hosted October 15th – October 17th. We have 3 awesome panels and over 16 events already submitted! So, come play some 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu with us! A link to the TTE will be in the show notes… and you can email MisktatonicRepositoryCon@gmail.com to get in touch! Innsmouth The Missing Child: A Gamebook is a choose your own adventure styled solo game book where you are an investigator brought in to find the whereabouts of a missing child amongst the odd and terrible inhabitants of Innsmouth. It has funded with $23k of a $1300 goal and still has 23 days left at the time of recording. The art looks sparse, but that’s what I would expect from a product of this type. You can get a PDF for as little as $9 and a physical starting at $17. Overall it looks pretty neat, and I’m trying to not back it. Free League has another Kickstarter out for two new products in their Forbidden Lands line, this time a bestiary of sorts called Forbidden Lands: Book of Beasts and a campaign called The Blood March. As we have come to expect from Free League, the art on display is absolutely gorgeous. And this seems to be a no brainer for any fan of the weird fantasy setting. You can get a pdf of both books for $35 or either individual book in print for $35. If you want both in print it will cost you $69. The project has already funded with $285k of a $12k goal, and will have another three days left at the time of this release. Good friend of the show and proprietor of The Old Ways Podcast, Mike Diamond, has officially announced a third campaign for their excellent live play series, but this time with a twist! They are currently accepting GM pitches for a new campaign run by a new Storyteller. So if you have a campaign in mind and have it well thought out put in your submission at the link in the show notes.

MUP Live Play – Aliens Part One
This is a Live Play recording of the scenario Chariot of the Gods for the Alien RPG. It was a last second decision to have it recorded, but we had a lot of fun doing it. None of us, aside from the GM, had played much of the Alien RPG yet, and we all quite liked it in the end. This is the first of a two-part series. The second part will go up in a separate post. I hope everyone enjoys it!
