Fear Itself

View From the Pelgrane's Nest

News from Pelgrane Press

This month, sees the release of Dissonance - four tracks by James Semple, this time for Esoterrorists. We have a couple of new limited products available from the special order page of our store, a few more copies of the Trail of Cthulhu Leatherbound version, and 18 copies of the advanced Mutant City Blues. For logistical reasons, they are only available to ship from the States and Canada, so shipping outside there is very expensive. Sorry.

The Dying Earth

This month saw the end of the Dying Earth license. I have six months to sell up the remaining stock. I think we have done the license justice, and I had a hoot running the game last week. Only one player had played Dying Earth before, but the rest got into it very quickly. One happy player whose character had Glib persuasion said, "this is just glorified bullshitting, isn't it?" I'm not sure Jack Vance would have put it that way, but that's not a bad take on it.
