Steady there OP. I'm humbly confident you'll find it worth the wait ... unless you enjoy adventures where all the investigators are still sane at the end. :twisted:

Re: Question about the Age of Cthulhu line

Any time frame on when the next adventure will be released? Yes, when is this coming out? Patience, good fellows—the next adventure will be announced before you know it. I best let the boss (that's Harley; I refer to Joseph as Mister Boss :wink: ) spill greater details as he will. And as Harley say...

Thank you for the kind review Harley! Teasers.

Re: What did you think of Adrian's podcast?

Years ago, at a New Jersey con (there are such things!) my friend & I signed up for a AD&D event. When we showed up, all the players were there but our GM was a no-show. At a nearby table was ... you guessed it ... a GM with no players. One quick table switch later we were all in business, and it wa...

Jezza, Yes, that was the original intent, a weapon most PCs couldn't use that was useful to Ssustre and fit the "scaly" theme well. Like the adder version of the staff of the serpent in 1e, the "can't be used by non-evil characters" clause prevents most PCs from making use of it. In your case, limit...

Jezza, Sounds like a good solution. As far as the warforged (which I know little about), the trog's club action could be considered a type of secondary attack that only certain creatures with the multiattack ability get.
