We’re back and we’re going on our summer holidays. Of course, all this lockdown stuff means that we’re all somewhat limited in our options. With this in mind, we thought we’d take you on an audio tour of some of our favourite unusual places. Sure, at least one of them isn’t actually there anymore, but given that we’re used to making places up entirely, this is still a step up. It just means that you’ll have to source your own overpriced souvenirs.

Main Topic: Unusual Places

After the last few episodes, we thought we’d leave the cultists alone for a bit. Instead, this episode offers some unusual places from the real world, along with our thoughts about how we might use them in games of Call of Cthulhu. Such locations form the foundations of many of our scenarios, as a quick flick through our back catalogue might indicate.

Once again, the lockdown means we recorded this episode remotely. We hope that we’re getting the hang of making this sound all right. It’s far from the biggest problem current circumstances have presented, but it’s still a challenge.


Things we mention in this episode include:

One of the more picturesque gateways to Hell
That’s a lot of mashed potato
Speaking of entrances to Hell…
Large pyramid. Church for scale.
Large stone circle. Entire bloody village for scale.


More Lockdown Specials

We are still releasing fortnightly lockdown specials, discussing films, books and television you might find inspirational to your gaming lives. If you are already backing us on Patreon, check your feed. Otherwise, backing us at any level will grant you instant access to the back catalogue.

    RE: Houska Castle, I’ve totally run a game using Houska as a backdrop. The Astonishing Legends put together a lovely two-part episode if you’re looking for more info.
