I ran a playtest of it as well. My players loved it. They got to run away from a raging big bad.

What Caleb's laptop looks like.

I ran Revelations for the Drunk and Ugly group; it just went up to today, and it's pretty fantastic. http://drunkandugly.com/2013/08/26/call-of-cthulu-revelations/

An abandoned stretch of elevated road from the 60s, in the middle of the Brazilian jungle.

They say they abandoned it because plans altered at the last minute...But we know better.

We also interview Caleb about revelations and game design. It's a pretty rad interview. http://drunkandugly.com/2013/08/28/interview-with-caleb-stokes-of-hebanon-games/

For the record, few things are as creepy as hearing about the "darkness between the stars" of Akaja's intro as you drive across the Midwest under the cold, distant stars above and lightning storms in the distance.

I'm not sure if you were aware of this but another RP podcast, "Fist Full of Misanthropes" is running the "No Security" games. They just posted their run of "Revelations".

(Without invoking any wrath respectfully) God-Damn! That was a hilarious and freaky time you guys went through, enjoyed the whole ordeal, you guys have a new subscriber and listener to your podcast.

I might look foreword to this more than I look foreword to the main podcast now.

I've been wanting to make a source book for Pathfinder for a long time now, I am just kinda stuck on the whole getting art and layout thing. It'll be nice to see what you go through... how much it ends up costing and all that.
42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven't used enough.
I intend to live forever -- so far, so good.

One thing I couldn't shake while listening to this was that Joel, Tess, Bill and Frank from The Last of Us would be PCs in Red Market.  A pair of smugglers and a couple scavengers rooting through the dead world to scavenge supplies to sell to survivors.  Am I wrong about that?

Hey,

Just listened to the Wives of March conclusion and loved it.  ^_^

I thought about it and it seemed like so soon after the podcast had been put up people might want some kind of spoiler buffer, I hope this is ok.

[spoiler]It really made me wonder if in a longer campaign whether one of the by now probably quite jaded and bitter companions might consider feeding information to an outsider in the hopes that they might bring about their deaths earlier if they were able to wipe out the 'shoggoth' thing birthing them all when they die. The self destructive element could be a double edged blade for a player character making use of this help though, I mean if you're really really old, angry and crazy and all you've got to choose between is dying in the next ten years and dying in the next thousand years maybe this means you don't help them to the best of your abilities because you don't really expect them to succeed. Possibly you send potential 'rescuers' in to harms way unprepared but you know they won't stop trying seeing as how you've clued them in on the future of humanity being at stake. The sappy part of me also envisions a dramatic anime ending where there is only one pair of companions left and after tearfully reuniting one last time they turn into sparkling light when the last 'shoggoth' is murderised, finally released from their endless torture and in the knowledge that it didn't cost them all of humanity into the bargain. It's only slightly off tone for the scenario. :P

But seriously, I did in addition to being horrified by it all feel genuinely bad for the companions. It kind of reminded me of Tithonus and how his lover? wife? Eos asks Zeus to grant him immortality but forgets to ask for eternal youth and so Tithonus ages away forever, apparently turning into a cicada and still living on only begging for death. I guess that's a more passive version of this though. The lessons being, contracts with meticulously read fine print are a must have when negotiating your own immortality.[/spoiler]
