Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition

A good friend of mine recently talked me into pledging my support for the newest iteration of Call of Cthulhu - one of may favorite RPGs of all time.  Information about the Kickstarter campaign may be found here:

I am happy that CoC is receiving the love that it deserves.  It is, in my opinion, one of the greatest RPGs of all time.    I actually enjoyed the demise of my character, the esteemed Dr.Whitfield Gropes.  Ironically, he didn't die in some asylum, slavering and howling at the moon.  He died in a plane crash.

Given the fact that the six previous editions of CoC are perfectly fine, I suppose a new edition isn't imperative.  However, this edition could be the greatest edition of all.  I am so excited about it that I have started to dream of cyclopean architecture and tenebrous darkness. 

We'll have to see what happens.  I am sure that the finished product will not disappoint.  I plan to use some of it in my Hrulvir campaign.

The Sellswords of Hrulvir

I have been toiling away at my first paid writing gig, so I haven't had much time to devote to Hrulvir.  Having said that, I took a break and stumbled upon this evocative illustration.

If someone were to ask what the typical scoundrel looks like in Hrulvir, I'd refer them to this image.  This is actually a rendition of one of the myriad groups skulking across the unforgiving lands of Westeros. 

Suffice it to say, I am quite furious with George R.R. Martin.  His scrofulous city of Braavos is a complete ripoff of Hrulvir.  Mr. Martin shall hear from my representation shortly.  I kid, of course.
