The Blasphemous Tome issue 4 cover

Issue 4 of The Blasphemous Tome is almost ready to go to press!

This is the print-only fanzine that we create for Patreon backers of The Good Friends of Jackson Elias podcast. It contains articles about RPGs, horror films and weird fiction, not to mention plenty of eldritch artwork and original content for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

Everyone backing us via Patreon by the end of this year will receive at least one copy of the Tome.

  • $1 backers receive one copy
  • $3 backers receive one signed copy
  • $5 backers receive two copies, one signed

Featured in this issue is a new Call of Cthulhu scenario from our very own Matt Sanderson, titled “The Hero Affirmed”.

December in Detroit. The bitter cold claims the lives of more and more homeless people every year. The largely abandoned districts of the city offer shelter from the cold winter nights. But the homeless are not the only ones seeking shelter. Something else has come in, out of the snow, looking for the warmest of hosts.

The cover, along with several pieces of internal artwork, comes from many-time Eisner-Award-Winning comic artist Evan Dorkin. We also have illustrations from many of our other favourite eldritch artists, including Daupo, John Sumrow, Jonathan Wyke, Symon Leech and Lucy Fricker.
