I bought the game a while back but Cthulu is not really my thing (mainly as I don't have the minis or terrain).

I have, however, commandeered some of your ideas to make another system work solo for me.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks a lot for supporting this project!

My idea would be to develop a ww2 versión of the game, as It is a setting I love and I have played for a long time.

I Hope I have enough time to do It!

Like the One who awaits in the dark, you may not see me, but I'm still here...

Real life has kept me away from gaming, mainly two kids on holidays (without going to school) that take most of my time.

What am I doing these days?

Well, I'm really busy as I'm working on different projects:

A Fear of the Dark mini campaign. A writter has disappeared while looking for information on a cult... a small fishy town with dark secrets awaits... Will the characters make It alive?
It's going to be a long scenario with a few dangerous scenes while they unveil whatever happened to the missing writter.

Terrain making and painting miniatures. New scenarios and new projects need new terrain and miniatures, so painting and making terrain takes a lot of time. Docks, a ship, scatter terrain, miniatures... There is always something new to paint or make (specially when we think on the project listed below)

A new project/ruleset based on ww2/weird ww2 skirmishes. Rules are almost done, but still need more playtesting. It will cover ww2 historical skirmishes but will also have a weird twist, always dealing with just a few miniatures and a narrative approach. That way you may play historical ww2 scenarios or go beyond and know what "really" happened during ww2.

As you can see there are a lot of things on the way, and the first one will be a post on terrain that I'm already preparing.

I'll be more active as summer is over (and kids start school) and I'll keep you informed on how everything unfolds.

We are getting close to the scariest date of the year... Halloween...

Are you preparing anything special related to wargames? Which are your plans?

I'm preparing a one-shot scenario for you and I want it to be available before Halloween.
The scenario is already written and I just have to playtest the scenes so that they are balanced.

The idea came while reading a bedtime story to my children and the plot may sound familiar:

"Officer, what we know about the case is that a young girl was going through the woods to her grandmother's house carrying a basket with a piece of cake... Next thing we know is that she was found dead as if a beast had slayed her...
It sounds familiar, isn't it, officer?
Well, to make things even more strange as It was raining she was wearing a cape with a hood...
Do you guess which colour was it?
Red... Of course...
So, officer... Are we looking for the Big bad wolf?"

The fourth free scenario has been added to the core ruleset.
Right now Fear of the Dark has 8 scenarios, and the whole ruleset and scenarios are more than 200 pages.

Halloween is quite a good opportunity to give a try to Fear of the Dark...

The miniatures are from Deep Madness board Game (That game is full of cool disgusting figures).
