The fabled “Sense of the Sleight of Hand Man” reappears

It appears March is a month of surprise appearances, not only for Sixtystone pulling it's finger out and actually publishing something, Dennis Detwiller's near-legendary Dreamlands campaign "Sense of the Sleight of Hand Man" has appeared on Kickstarter seeking funds for completion.

The blurb: "The Sense of the Sleight of Hand Man is a complete classic Call of Cthulhu campaign set in 1920s New York and in H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamlands. It will be approximately 128 pages. It is a fully illustrated, mapped and lavishly
detailed tabletop RPG PDF book, written and illustrated by Dennis Detwiller (me). This work will be finished by summer 2012."

Please go and show your appreciation even if you don't  like Dreamlands because at the very least this campaign is the exception that proves the rule. I should know - I edited part one of the campaign that appeared in Worlds of Cthulhu.

Sixtystone finally releases first PDF

Sixtystone Press Limited is proud to announce the publication of its first book in PDF: Investigator Weapons volume one: 1920s and 1930s.

Specifically designed for Call of Cthulhu in the Classic era, Investigator Weapons features several dozens of firearms available during the Inter-war period to discerning investigators of the Mythos and their crazed cultist opponents.

Hans-Christian Vortisch (author of Cthulhu – Waffen-Handbuch, GURPS High-Tech, GURPS Martial Arts: Fairbairn Close Combat Systems, and GURPS Tactical Shooting) has selected the most typical or iconic weapons to lesser known but more widespread firearms.

Each firearm and its variant models are illustrated and detailed in depth, including operation and common malfunction, and extended game stats. Investigator Weapons will also tell you which movie to see the firearm in use.

Investigator Weapons not only covers firearms, and includes flamethrowers, melee weapons, explosives, and special ammunition for completeness. Also gathered together in the same place, for the first time, are all the spot rules for injury, environmental conditions, and firearms combat from many Call of Cthulhu publications, as well as introducing many optional rules for enhanced play.
