A)Horror on the Orient Express Audio Game - Full Steam Ahead!
For those who enjoyed Yog-Sothoth's last Call of Cthulhu audio campaign, the Masks of Nyarlathotep, well here's the beginning of a new one for 2007. The Bradford players have got on board the Cthulhu train again as they make their way into the classic Horror on the Orient Express campaign from Chaosium.

The episodes are available in MP3 format, but this time are released in even higher quality, 96KBPS stereo (twice that of before) and feature 3D Surround Sound, so you can hear where the players are around the games table, as if you were in the middle of it all. (Try Episode 01 on headphones for full effect.)

So, feel free to follow along as the new party receive a phone call and an old friend asks a small favour...

You can find a selection of materials in support of the audio game via: http://www.yog-sothoth.com/express including handouts, party photos and initial character sheets, so jump on board! You can find more information at http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=358
