Issue 4.5 of The Blasphemous Tome is almost ready for distribution!
What is The Blasphemous Tome?
The Blasphemous Tome is the regular fanzine that we create for Patreon backers of The Good Friends of Jackson Elias podcast. It contains plenty of sanity-blasting content for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, along with original artwork, fiction, reviews and many other articles.
Unlike previous editions of the Tome, issue 4.5 is not a print publication. Instead, we are releasing it as a PDF. This is a special interim edition, sharing articles we couldn’t fit in issue 4, along with lots of new content.
Issue 5, due later this year, will be print-only as usual.
Everyone backing us via Patreon by the end of July will receive a digital copy of issue 4.5.
Featured in this issue is a new Call of Cthulhu scenario by our very own Paul Fricker, titled “Fall Out”.
Jonathan Weisner has taken hostages and is holed up at his country house in Massachusetts. Elements of the past are about to mix with the present, leaving the investigators to pick up the pieces.
The cover comes from John Sumrow, one of our favourite eldritch artists. There is plenty of interior artwork too, featuring pieces from Evan Dorkin, Lucy Fricker, Emily Fricker and more from John Sumrow.

- Sounds Alarming
- Scott offers troubling insights into the noises we make for the backer songs
