Miskatonic Monday #35: And more Call of Cthulhu titles from Alumni of the 'Write Your First Adventure' Workshop
Posted by Michael O'Brien on 9th Aug 2021
Among new titles in the Miskatonic Repository here are even more creations by Alumni of the Storytelling Collective's Write Your First Adventure workshop last month! The Call of Cthulhu path of the program was designed by award-winning RPG designer Paul Fricker, co-author of Call of Cthulhu 7th edition. For anyone who would like to give scenario writing a go, the workshop will be running again in November!
