Episode 341: Trouser Leg of the Mythos

April 26th, 2019 | Robin

We lit the fires of the Gaming Hut the old-fashioned way before answering a question from Patreon backer Jason Thompson on interesting players in low-tech settings.

In the Cinema Hut we revisit the subject of the rewatch, looking at films that change or defy expectations on subsequent viewings.

Then Ken and/or Robin Talk to Someone else, as we both chat with Chaosium’s Lynne Hardy about line development and the upcoming Call of Cthulhu projects on her docket.

Finally, at the behest of backer Andrea Colletta, we pop into the parlor of the Consulting Occultist to whip up the new sorcerous discipline of etymomancy.

    I’d completely forgotten that https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_the_Kid_and_the_Green_Baize_Vampire was a musical. It’s perhaps the one vampire film Ken has not seen.
