Issue 5.5 of The Blasphemous Tome is now available!
This is the interim digital edition of the 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 sanity-blasting artwork and original content for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.
Everyone backing us via Patreon gain access to a PDF copy of the Tome.
Featured in this issue is a new Call of Cthulhu scenario by our very own Scott Dorward, titled “The Murder Shack”.
Last year, a gruesome mass murder occurred in a remote woodland cabin. A group of innocent people were gutted with an old farm implement and their murderer took his own life. Now, a stranger has appeared saying that she has a message from beyond the grave, saying all is not as it seems. What is the terrible secret of the Murder Shack? Is history doomed to repeat? And is everything there as dead as it appears to be?
The cover comes from our good friend Jonathan Wyke, whose work adorns many of our past issues. We also have illustrations from some favourite eldritch artists, including Danial Carroll, Evan Dorkin, Lucy Fricker, Nefeli Mandilaras and John Sumrow.
