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: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/448333182/call-of-cthulhu-7th-edition.
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.

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.
