(An Announcement from MRP)
Miskatonic River Press is proud to announce our 5th project!
Tales of the Sleepless City – a collection of Classic Era Call of Cthulhu scenarios set in New York City.
Why New York City? So many scenarios are set in lonely farmhouses, in remote corners of New England or isolated locations such as lighthouses, islands or forests. However, someone can be just as alone in a major city surrounded by millions of people. The urban scenario has long been in short supply. Writing and running one, as well as conducting an investigation in an urban setting, has its own set of rules, challenges, opportunities and limitations. For the cultists and creatures of the mythos, a city is a great place to hide, to plot and to hunt. Lastly, Tom and I are both native New Yorkers, this is our town.
We are thrilled to tell everyone that this project is being managed and edited by Call of Cthulhu veteran Scott David Aniolowski, who will also be writing one of the scenarios for it. While we’re not ready to announce the exact line up just yet, Call of Cthulhu veterans Dan Harms, Oscar Rios and Brian Sammons have already sent in their New York scenarios for review. The cover is currently being produced by none other than the great Paul Carrick.
We’re shooting for a mid 2011 release. Stay tuned for more updates in the weeks and months to come.
