YSDC News - Articles - 02 May 2017 08:09 AM | PoC in MAIN I love dice. Like many players I have lots of them which I've kept in various receptacles over the years (anywhere from game boxes, poly bags and little plastic coffins to wooden chests and leather pouches) but now it looks like I may have a new and wonderfully thematic option with Bagthulhu from Bridget Hughes of Wayward Masquerade. Capable of holding up to 100 dice at a time, Bagthulhu stands 8" (20 cm) tall and is waiting to devour your soul keep your dice safe and secure for your next game. The Kickstarter runs until the end of May. Now you can feed Great Cthulhu dice instead of 1d6 Investigators per round...

Feature Focus: iPlay4e - Masterplan One upcoming feature we’d like to highlight is integration with iPlay4e, which will make its first appearance in Masterplan version 8.2. This came about very simply: a short email from Andrew Reutter, the iPlay4e designer, mentioning that he’d received calls to integrate it with Masterplan, and would we be interested in some sort of collaboration? Sadly his users hadn’t given any indication of what kind of integration they wanted to see, so we’re starting with the most obvious: since Masterplan already has the concept of PCs, this feature allows users to enter iPlay4e keys and have Masterplan link to that character, so that if you select that PC in combat you’ll see the iPlay4e character sheet, rather than the usual PC breakdown that Masterplan provides (although Masterplan will also download all the relevant character information as a backup). The iPlay4e character sheet works exactly as it does outside Masterplan, allowing you to use all its features as normal.

Mapping Software - Forums > Home - Forums Product Info - Store Forums - Free Art The Call of Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft Lovecraft was not a great writer, but he was great at imagining. He writes with an awkward, clunky, affected style that does not flow well and can be disruptive to the mood he would like to build. But the ideas themselves, the stories he wanted to tell, are in themselves so chilling that they transcend his less than stellar prose. A lot of horror and science fiction that we have today is influenced by Lovecraft. A lot of authors in these genres consider him a powerful influence. It says something that authors like Stephen King, Brian Lumley, Robert Bloch, and others, have written stories set in Lovecraft's mythology.
