Dragonmeet, What Cthulhloid Goodess Will You Bring?

The British gaming convention organized by Cubicle 7 is this weekend. A year ago I didn't even know that Dragonmeet existed, let alone what it was called, this year I've been waiting with anticipation.

That's because some of the best Cthulhu-related products in English are coming from the UK these days. Cubicle 7's Cthulhu Britannica line is providing sourcebooks about 1920s England and Scotland (so far the only book on Wales is in German). Also in this UK-oriented line is the first boxset for Call of Cthulhu in nearly twenty years, focusing on London. After Bookhounds of London (and the Occult Guide to London) from the Trail of Cthulhu line (Pelgrane Press), it'll be interesting to see how this boxset compares.

(Speaking of Trail of Cthulhu, the Eternal Lies campaign is also getting closer to its release, possibly as early as late summer in 2012.)

Not everything is coming from the UK though. One of Chaosium's monographs that is also slowly nearing completion is the guide for the classic Masks of Nyarlethotep campaign.

All in all, the stars seem to be right for some Cthulhu gaming.
