We’re back with another special episode we recorded at Necronomicon 2017. This time it’s the Pulp Versus Pure panel that took place on the Friday morning. Paul Fricker and Lynne Hardy defend the purity of Call of Cthulhu with Elder and Voorish signs aplenty. Dan Kramer and Chris Lackey swing into action to promulgate pulp with both fists. Mike Mason moderates and risks getting caught in the crossfire.
On the off-chance you don’t recognise all of these names, let’s quickly explain who everyone apart from Paul is. Lynne Hardy is the former line developer for Modiphius’ Achtung! Cthulhu game line and current freelance writer for Chaosium. Dan Kramer — better known as Keeper Dan — is one of the co-hosts of the Miskatonic University Podcast. Chris Lackey is the co-host of the H P Lovecraft Literary Podcast. Mike Mason is the line editor of Call of Cthulhu and a regular guest on The Good Friends of Jackson Elias. But you knew that.
Thank you to Derek Robertson of Mysteries of Montreal for letting us use his photograph of the event.
