Hideous Creatures: Hounds of Tindalos for Trail of Cthulhu available now!

Posted on May 31, 2013 by

In this series, Kenneth Hite looks at the creatures, species, and monsters of the Cthulhu Mythos from every non-Euclidean angle. Alternate versions and new explanations provide the same jolt of mythic bisociation that the gods and titans receive in the TRAIL OF CTHULHU corebook. Hite traces these foul things through their legendary history, and provides further clues for any Investigator to follow. Horrific scenario seeds burst and bloom, story spines protrude and deform, in a blasphemous garden any Keeper can harvest.

Hounds of Tindalos is the third installment of the Ken Writes About Stuff subscription, or it’s available as a stand-alone product.

Hideous Creatures: Hounds of Tindalos is available now at DriveThruRPG.com!

Scarlet Huntress Anthology on Kickstarter

Posted on May 2, 2013 by

Scarlet Huntress battles werewolves and fights for revenge in a new exciting comic with 3 stories and tons of new art by Sean Forney!

Scarlet Huntress has been a passion and a long journey for us. We have worked hard to develop the characters, back stories, and story arcs to keep readers interested. The original book, Scarlet Huntress #1, came out in 2006 but Scarlet first appeared in two other anthology books called Portal. After seeing great reviews and success with #1 we took our time developing the next phase of the story and published Scarlet Huntress #2 in 2011. Soon after came the ancillary books Scarlet’s Guide to Cryptids and a children’s book version Little Red Riding Hood: Origins of a Huntress. People have been asking for more stories and more books so we’ve come up with this kickstarter to help fund our and everyone else’s dreams of seeing more Scarlet Huntress hitting the shelves.
