Tales from the Dark Days of Roleplaying (Part 2 of 4) by Sandy

Tales from the Dark Days of Roleplaying (Part 2 of 4) by Sandy

In 1981, I moved to California’s Bay Area and took up full-time employment at Chaosium. Our favorite game store was Games of Berkeley, affectionately simply called “Gob” by us. Just checked and lo and behold it seems to be in the same spot after all these years. Well done, Gob. I don’t know if Gob itself is still owned by Don R., who now runs a major games distributor and also manufactures dice — you can see him at any major gaming convention (I always say hi!).

Anyway when I first arrived in the Bay Area naturally I went looking for the best game store, and walked into Games of Berkeley.

I introduced myself as Sandy Petersen, author of the newly-released Call of Cthulhu RPG and the clerk immediately replied, “No you’re not. She was in here last week.” 

I enquired further, and it turns out that some lady had showed up and said she was Sandy Petersen, author of Call of Cthulhu. She’d even signed copies of the book for people! Sadly I never met the lady, so the Case of the False Sandy is still unsolved. I’m now well known enough that I suspect most people know I’m male in any case, plus my mug is all over the internetz. 

Monster of the Month: Toad Bat

Monster of the Month: Toad Bat

Here is a sneak preview of the Toad Bat, who will debut next month in The Big Sleep, Act 1.

Not all spawn of Tsathoggua are formless. These diminutive minions of the Sleeper mimic his terrible form and share his insatiable appetite. Little more than blobs of flesh with a mouth and a pair of wings, esoteric scholars have dubbed these creatures ‘toad-bats’ for the passing resemblance they bear to both beasts.

This hideous monstrosity looks something like a fat, hairy toad with the wings and upturned nose of a bat and an oversized mouth full of jagged teeth. Black slime oozes from its pustulous skin.

Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos Review

Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos Review

Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos Review
by Benjamin Page at Beyond the Veil

Sandys Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos is an amazing guide to inject Lovecraftian horror into your Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition game. With simple but unique additions it valiantly elicits the feeling of a world being invaded by unimaginable horrors, as well as the ensuing mental stress. Depicted with incredible art that evokes a palpable sense of awe and wonder to the Lovecraftian terrors you’ll face. If you’re looking to inject the strange and bizarre into your D&D exploits I cannot recommend this enough.”

“The great beast emerging from the cracks in the ground lets out an earth shattering scream as it’s driven back into the blasted realm it came from. With a defiant cry you seal the portal so it can never return. As the chaos fades and exhaustion sets in, you grin, in awe of your party’s accomplishments. This unlikely band of adventurers has somehow – against all odds – saved the world from a seemingly invincible creature of legend and mythos.”
