Thanks mate :)

We recorded some soundbites and I spliced it together this afternoon :) The background music is called The Poet by The Fog Society. I found it on ccMixter and thought it was pretty decent :) The full version has some spoken word from Aleister Crowley. :)

I just finished re-reading At the Mountains of Madness not 24 hours ago. That is fortuitous timing indeed.

I have to say that I will miss the dungeon delving of the "traditional" DnD that I've gotten addicted to (also getting a steady dose of Horror on the Orient Express), but I think I'll greatly enjoy the exploration of the cyclopean ruins, the encounters with penguins and that elucidation of the decadent carvings and strange groupings of dots all the while subjected to that ineffable foetid odour and bizzare, wide ranged piping sounds.

Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li!

I have recently heard a lot about this and am attempting to gain my own copy on ebay. I have been wanting to get involved in a Call of Cthulhu campaign, this is going to be fantastic! Thank you!

Thanks!

It is going to be a little slow to start as most of the actual adventure occurs Beyond the Mountains of Madness; obviously. There are about 150 - 160 pages prior to that, mostly getting the party there and setting up the mystery. But it is all good for character building and stuff :)

Anyone listened to it yet? Whatcha think?

The first bit has definatly been the hardest, in any Coc game I have played. I'm really enjoying the game now, and looking forward to the next parts, but I have found some of the more "set bits" a bit annoying, as you are rail-roaded a bit.

That said, you don't think I'd make it easy on Hal, do you?

I was able to listen to it last night. Fantastic! I love the character building. Although by the time we get beyoned the mountain, I believe I will be ready for the action.

Sounds like Hal may have to do most of the reading, sorry Hal.

Thanks again! Excellent selection.

Very nice episode, looking forward to more.

Was that Glen(n) aka "Ragamajar" in the background (along with a television)? Is he playing in this campaign?

Could I put in a request for a cast list? I'm not yet familiar with your voices and find it easier to follow along when I know who is playing which character.

I have to say that Lindsay's 'outburst' at her interview was the highlight of that episode;)

I totally agree :) I was all prepared to have Starkweather walk all over her and she totally emasculated him. It was ace :)
