Lovecraft Country/Ghosts of Saltmarsh
A double meat episode! First off, Stu gives an overview of Keith Herber’s series of Lovecraft Country sourcebooks for Call of Cthulhu: Arkham Unveiled, Return to Dunwich, Kingport: City in the Mists and Escape from Innsmouth. They are an important piece in the puzzle of how to present large regions in a way that is helpful and engaging for roleplaying games.
Second, Hambone is a-glow for the new Dungeons & Dragons adventure compilation, Ghosts of Saltmarsh, which reprints a number of classic D&D scenarios, including the U-series: Sinister Secret of Salt Marsh, Danger at Dunwater and The Final Enemy. Surprising no one, Stu is less enthusiastic.
Don’t let that grump stop you, though. Ghosts of Saltmarsh is for sale now at our sponsor, Noble Knight Games. From May 27 to June 15, use the promo code CLASSICS, in store or online, to get $5 off purchases of $25 or more!
